Red Alert 3 PC Expansion Priced, Detailed

BOOM widget 75401 According to a new Direct2Drive listing, the PC-exclusive, stand-alone expansion to EA LA's Red Alert 3 will cost a mere $20 when it is released this March.

The expansion pack, titled Uprising, will initially be available only through digital download services. Though Electronic Arts has not independently confirmed the figure, it previously hinted at a lower-than-typical price for the game.

"Part of the reason why we decided to become a digital download was so that we could pass some of the savings onto all of you out there," said EA community manager Apoc earlier this week. "We realize that times are tough, so we are making sure that Uprising will be a great value and something that any Command & Conquer fan can afford. More on the exact price in the weeks to come."

Rather than adding a fourth faction, Uprising will focus on new units and additional story, with a fourth mini-campaign centered around the commando Yuriko. While no co-op or multiplayer will be included, the skirmish mode will be bolstered with a "huge number of new maps." A new "Commander's Challenge" mode will provide a set of 50 mini-missions presenting various challenges.
