Browser-based Command & Conquer strategy MMO announced

“Compete or ally with your friends in a worldwide war for precious resources. Based in the Command and Conquer Tiberium story world, C&C Tiberium Alliances allows players to experience C&C in a brand new way,” the official word says.

“Using HTML 5 technology, players are able to access their game from any web accessible browser making this one of the first truly portable mmo strategy titles to hit the market.”

All this of course comes just as the publisher announced the new Command & Conquer: Generals 2 this weekend, a new PC-only, Frostbite 2-powered RTS from BioWare Victory. More on that here.
