Frequently Asked Questions / F.A.Q.
What is Twisted Insurrection?
Twisted Insurrection is a standalone game based on a heavily modified Tiberian Sun engine. The game features a completely new in-depth storyline which puts you in an alternate timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod were victorious during the first Tiberian War rather than GDI.
Along with the complete overhaul and replacing of the original game's graphics, gameplay and having it's own all new original soundtrack, Twisted Insurrection brings you an entirely new arsenal of units, infantry, aircraft and naval forces to command as either the Brotherhood of Nod or GDI in massive singleplayer or online multiplayer battles. The Twisted Insurrection client allows you to play your own way featuring hundreds of possible option combinations, preset locations and alliances and customisable themes.
The game also features multiple full length campaigns for Nod, GDI, & the new GloboTech faction. Play over 50 brand new campaign missions and try your hand at challenge modes, our own reimagining of the Tiberian Dawn (Twisted Dawn as we like to call it) campaigns and more.
The fate of the Earth lies dangerously unknown. Do you have what it takes to drag the shattered Global Defense Initiative out of ruin? Or will you crush all who oppose the will of Kane and his Inner Circle? The choice is yours commander.

Where can I download Twisted Insurrection?
Head over to our Downloads Page on our Official Wesbsite for all the necessary downloads and instructions that you'll need.
Can I download updates manually (for people with Launcher problems)?
If for some reason your TI_Launcher.exe isn't downloading patches or you are unable to do so, I will be uploading patches to download manually to the "Available Updates" Thread on our forum. All patches will include previous patches so you only need to install the latest version but please make sure you read the instructions!
Can I play Twisted Insurrection Online?
Twisted Insurrection uses CnCNet which makes online play a breeze. To run CnCNet, simply click the "Play on CNCNet" option from the Twisted Insurrection launcher (Public Beta 4 onwards) and click the CNCNet / LAN button on the Twisted Insurrection Main Menu and you're good to go!
If you encounter any problems, seek help on the CnCNet Website.
Where can I keep track of Twisted Insurrection
Do I need Tiberian Sun to play Twisted Insurrection?
No. Twisted Insurrection is STANDALONE and runs by itself in it's own directory. You do not need Tiberian Sun or any other Command & Conquer game installed to play Twisted Insurrection and it will ALWAYS be this way.
Will GloboTech become a playable faction?
It is more likely that GloboTech will be a playable faction in a new mod than it is that they will be added to Twisted Insurrection. There are multiple reasons for this, but the main ones are:
- One of the TI team's personal favorite things in TI is that GloboTech are a campaign/tech only addition
- Adding Third sides has some side effects that were not willing to tolerate
- If we ever want to get out of beta, we need to avoid adding unnecessary work to our to-do-list
That isn't to say that it will never happen, au contraire, there are people working on Tiberian Sun EXE patches that could possibly make 3rd sides much less of a nightmare and less-buggy. If this is done to the point that I feel it's near-perfect, then there is a good possibility it could get done at some point (HyperPatch is looking promising so far), but don't get your hopes up.
