Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances will bring C&C to your browser

Hot off the recent announcement of Command & Conquer: Generals 2, EA announce that they'll be releasing a browser-based C&C called Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances. They describe it as a "hardcore strategy" that will be playable on any "HTML5 compatible browser or mobile device."

Apparently you'll be able to build alliances and take territory by "leveraging your social network strategically," which sounds a little sinister. You'll also be able to gather resources and battle your friends for control of a "dynamically updating map." It's being developed by Phenomic, the studio behind Battleforge and Lord of Ultima, both of which are free to play. EA will be taking closed beta applications on when it eventually goes live.

Just having large, fire-breathing dragons that can burninate pathetic peasants on a whim is not enough for me.

So I give my dragons drugs.
