Twisted Insurrection (abbreviated TI) is a standalone game built upon Tiberian Sun: Firestorm. The project was founded in November 2007 by mod leader Andrew 'Aro' Owen, who was later joined by several other staff members including 'Lin Kuei Ominae', the Twisted Insurrection co-leader and 'ErastusMercy', the Twisted Insurrection secondary co-leader.
The modification saw its first public release (Public Beta 1) on August 24th, 2010, instantly becoming one of the most popular Tiberian Sun mods to date. Twisted Insurrection has seen many different releases since the first public beta, including updated betas and soundtrack packs.
Twisted Insurrection aims to replace every single graphic from Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun with greatly improved material. The mod brings the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod in an all new storyline with all-new units, structures and superweapons and the ability to wage war on over 70 new multiplayer maps. Along with the huge graphical enhancements, Twisted Insurrection brings all-new GDI and Nod campaign missions plus GDI and Nod challenges. In the campaign, an new faction known only as GloboTech is introduced, but is only available in the campaign, excluding its units, which can become available once tech buildings are captured or crates are picked up.
Twisted Insurrection is compatible with CnCNet.
Twisted Insurrection is set in an alternate timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod won the First Tiberium War.
Both campaigns start shortly after the downfall of GDI, with the Brotherhood of Nod emerging as the world's dominant military power. The fractured remains of GDI are fighting a desperate battle for survival when a representative from the mysterious GloboTech Corporation contacts GDI General Owen with the promise of salvation.
Thanks to their new ally GDI slowly but surely received, the necessary manpower and resources needed to rebuild their forces. The Brotherhood remained ignorant to GDI's underground activity for quite some time. That was until they sent a taskforce to raise a rebellious city under the protection of an unknown militia. The militia were later identified to be part of GloboTech’s own private army, further more they were discovered to be aiding GDI troops.
Now aware of GDI's amassing strength, Kane ordered the acceleration of Nod's next generation weapons programs, in order to eradicate the new GDI and their allies before they could interferer with his plans.
Disaster strikes a year later as the Sarajevo Temple and its surrounding base are devastated by a Tiberium based explosion of unprecedented power, worst of all Kane was missing, presumed dead. The entire Brotherhood mourn the disappearance of their leader later naming it the "Day of Lament".
Without their messiah to guide them, Nod's unity threatens to unravel as old rivalries grow and differences in belief lead to violent schisms. The Inner Circle attempt to reassert order but only end up adding fuel to the growing unrest leading to many of these opposing sects splitting from Nod leaving the Brotherhood's forces severely diminished.
Now with Nod drastically weakened and GDI gaining in strength, the door to a second Tiberium War is open, leaving the opportunity for terrifying possibilities to occur in which the fate of the Earth lies dangerously unknown.
Twisted Insurrection is still incomplete, as all current public releases are only beta builds. It is unknown when the final build will become available for public download. However, the Twisted Insurrection development team is constantly working on the project.
Alongside the main modification, the development team is also working on a prequel project known as Twisted Dawn, featuring classic units and structures from Tiberian Dawn, in an all-new singleplayer campaign that bridges the gap between Tiberian Dawn and Twisted Insurrection, which takes place three short years after the events of Twisted Dawn. The release date is currently unknown, as Twisted Dawn is still in early development.
