Video Game: Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun
EVA: Welcome back, commander.
"I've seen the future. Our tiberian future. And as you watch this battle just beginning to unfold, I've already seen the final act. It is my destiny to lead the way for all mankind..."Tiberian Sun
—Kane to General Solomon
is the second installment in the Command & Conquer: Tiberian Series
. Set in 2030, tiberium is now spreading unchecked, forcing humanity to flee to the arctic or desert regions that can at least slow the substance's progress. As governments break down and GDI does its best to bring order from the chaos, Kane reappears to lead a reunified and invigorated Nod into battle once more. A crashed alien spaceship and an extraterrestrial artifact called the Tacitus hint at a larger purpose behind Tiberium, but ultimately Kane's attempt to use a missile to increase Tiberium's spread is thwarted with the man's death (again).
Released in 1999, the game notably raised the cutscenes profile of the saga, featuring for the first time renowned mainstream actors such as James Earl Jones
and Michael Biehn
. The Scrin technology makes its first appearance in this game, as well.
An expansion pack was also released, called Tiberian Sun: Firestorm
, in which Nod's battle AI, CABAL, revolts and leads a cyborg
uprising, forcing GDI and the remnants of Nod to unite to defeat him.
