Analysis

Hourglass was once a peaceful harvesting Island for Tiberium crystals, now a war zone. It has unique future testing facilities such as an Uplink Station to disable advanced base defences – Obelisk and Advanced Guard Tower and features a mini replica of Scrin’s sacred temple, showing it’s their territory.

There are ladders on either side of the large hill leading to a vantage point just above the waterfall, overlooking the Tiberium field.

Reinforcement Tiberian Sun vehicles will arrive at the back of each base behind the wall, after around 30 minutes of playing the map.

Trivia

  • The original Hourglass in C&C Renegade was a desert map in daylight with a clear sky.
  • The original Hourglass did not have an Uplink Station or Scrin Temple
