Red Alert 3 coming to PS3 in March
EA has officially announced that Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition will be released on PlayStation 3 in March.
The Ultimate Edition is set to include everything from last year’s Xbox 360/PC release of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3, while taking full advantage of PlayStation 3’s Blu-ray disc capacity. The Ultimate Edition will offer an extensive array of exclusive bonus content, making Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition “the ultimate Red Alert 3 experience and an incredible value for PlayStation 3 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 & 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.”
The Ultimate Edition will include the following bonus content:
• Five exciting new multiplayer maps
• Behind the scenes videos and trailers, including Raising the Iron Curtain Documentary, From Pens to Pixels, the Girls of Red Alert 3, Bloopers & Outtakes, the Red Alert 3 Remix and many more!
• PS3 exclusive Command & Conquer TV programming, including PS3-dedicated BattleCast™ PrimeTime and a special episode of Command School focused on tips, tricks and strategies from the development team
• In-depth profiles on all the Red Alert 3 Units
• The official Red Alert 3 soundtrack
Information on Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition leaked onto the internet last week when the game was listed on the EA Store. The product page has since been removed.
At the same time EA announced that a follow up to Red Alert 3, titled Red Alert 3: Uprising, will launch exclusively on PC in March.
