C&C: Red Alert 3 Announced for PC, Consoles

Following the title's unveiling earlier this week, publisher Electronic Arts has officially announced Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Developed by EA Los Angeles, the same studio that handled Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (PC, X360), Red Alert 3 will add co-op campaign play, new units, and a new faction to the alternate history strategy series. According to executive producer Chris Corry, naval combat has been brought "into the heart of the game design."

No release estimate was provided, though PC players will be able to gain beta access by purchasing the Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath expansion or the Command & Conquer 3 Limited Collection later this year. Specifics on the beta program are slated to arrive this summer.

"The Red Alert games are known for challenging hardcore strategy gamers with depth, variety, and innovative gameplay," said EA LA general manager Mike Verdu. "But they also belong to that rare breed of games that can draw in more casual players with their over-the-top stories, instantly accessible mechanics, and straight-to-the-fun design."

A set of screenshots, a piece of concept art, and a video interview accompanied the announcement.

      Nice troll. RA has always been better than the last C&C title.

      That's all RA has ever been... what makes it awesome is the setting (way better than C&C's current progression from Tiberian Sun) and what some of those different units do. Tesla coil? :)

        How is the tesla coil any different than the obelisk of light?

        Does the same thing, with a different look.

        Point is, the screenies look very blah and are lacking any of the style that RA1/RA2 had.
        Just like CnC3.
