EA Brings Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge to Consoles


EA is bringing the previously PC-only and Ric-Flair-filled Red Alert 3: Commander’s Challenge content to PS3 and 360 this fall as a value-priced downloadable standalone game.

If you’re looking for a cheap way to experience the madness that is Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 on consoles and also happen to love past-their-prime pro wrestlers, man, have I got good news for you. EA is bringing Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge to the PS3 and 360 this fall, and it’s packed full of ridiculous RTS action and everyone’s favorite grey-haired pro wrestling champion, Ric “The Nature Boy” Flair.

This isn’t an add-on to Red Alert 3 or some kind of DLC – Commander’s Challenge is a standalone Red Alert 3 experience. It features 50 different challenges that set you against nine different commanders, each challenge having a different ridiculous scenario that confronts players with “everything from giant Soviet war bears and an entire army of psionic Japanese school girls to massive satellite orbital bombardments.” As you complete challenges you unlock units, technology and more content.

Sounds kinda like an abbreviated version of the full-on Red Alert 3 experience with its campaign and multiplayer modes, and for that it’s got an abbreviated price as well. “Commander’s Challenge delivers the ultimate RTS gameplay experience console players have been craving,” EA Los Angeles’ Wes Eckhart said. “Delivering over thirty hours of RTS entertainment, it is an incredible value at less than $10.”

That translates to 800 Microsoft Points and $9.99 on the PlayStation Store, in case you were wondering.
