It is said that two of the most creative words in the English language are “what if.” That seems to be behind Electronic Arts‘ thinking, as it seems the company is not quite letting go of the alternate history lineup of the Command and Conquer series of games with the recent announcement of Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. We guarantee you’ll be seeing red after the jump.
Veterans of the first two Command and Conquer: Red Alert games may fondly remember how then developer Westwood Studios rewrote history with the Soviet Union as the dominant power to beat. Yes, that’s right. We said “first two games” because Electronic Arts has recently announced that third installment for the Red Alert series is in the works.
Admittedly, not much info has been revealed about this new sequel as of yet. The April issue of PC Gamer, however, features what appears to be a Soviet version of Tanya (either that or a gender-switched version of Boris without the fur coat) sporting a Kalashnikov designer rifle on the front cover.
Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 should complement Electronic Arts’ other offerings, namely Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (PC, Xbox 360) and Tiberium (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) quite nicely. PC Gamer magazine will be featuring the game in it’s April issue, but if you’d like to see red in the meantime, feel free to check out PC Gamer’s website, courtesy of the link below.
