The epic saga of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 continues this March with Uprising, a PC-exclusive standalone expansion that takes the single-player campaign to a whole new level.
Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising picks up where the original game left off, with the Soviets dealing with their utter defeat, the Empire of the Rising Sun trying to regain their honor, and the Allies dealing with corruption in their ranks. New in the expansion is the Commander's Challenge, which lets players take on nine different commanders in 50 unique challenges. Challenge mode, if you will.
"Uprising is a game that in many ways reflects the feedback we have gotten from the Command & Conquer community," said Amer Ajami, Senior Producer at EA Los Angeles. "We're giving gamers more of what they want – more of the fast, fluid and fun gameplay, more of the story we began to tell in Red Alert 3 and more cutscenes featuring top-notch Hollywood talent.
Speaking of Hollywood talent, EA plans to introduce new additions to the cast in the near future. Uprising will be available exclusively for the PC in March via digital download.
