Electronic Arts has popped out the first details for Command & Conquer 3 expansion pack Kane's Wrath.

It will be available in spring 2008, and is based around the Brotherhood of Nod commander and the faction's rise to power - told through a series of video excerpts featuring original Kane actor Joe Kucan.

The biggest additions to gameplay will be a new global Risk-like strategy map, where you'll be able build up and customise your faction's army before jumping into individual battles and leading them to victory.

Couch-commanders eagerly getting to grips with 360 console controls will be treated to a new radial interface system, too, which will let you build, deploy, and attack with your command stick. I say.

On top of all this are six new sub-factions to play around with, and loads of new units, structures and powers for the GDI, Nod and Scrin factions.

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars was released on PC in March and Xbox 360 in May. While it doesn't feature the same depth as something like Supreme Commander or Total War, for fast and fun battles it can barely be topped.

Head over to our Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars review for a closer inspection. We didn't review the 360 port, but it's just as good and the controls work surprisingly well.
