EA Bringing Red Alert 3 to PS3
Electronic Arts announced today that the Command and Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition will be bringing the best-selling Command and Conquer franchise to the PS3 for the very first time this March. The Ultimate Edition includes everything from last year’s award-winning release of Command and Conquer Red Alert 3, while taking full advantage of the PlayStation 3’s Blu-ray disc capacity, offering an extensive array of exclusive bonus content, making the Command and Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition the ultimate Red Alert 3 experience and an incredible value for PS3 gamers.
“Our team has been dedicated to bringing the RTS genre to console gamers and we are excited to have this opportunity to introduce PS3 owners to Command and Conquer,” said David Seeholzer, Development Director at EA Los Angeles. “The PS3 is a very powerful platform, and the extra time we have had in development has helped us create the ultimate console RTS experience, with better graphics, improved performance, a ton of extras and some nice exclusive perks that cannot be found on any other version of Red Alert 3.”
Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 blends the over-the-top humor and fast, fluid and fun gameplay the series is known for with exciting new innovations for the RTS genre, including fully co-operative, story driven-campaigns and an unprecedented emphasis on naval gameplay. PS3 gamers will navigate the CandC style, action-packed gameplay via the Command Stick 2.0 interface, an intuitive control system that allows gamers of all skill levels to easily and efficiently command their units on the battlefield.
