Truth be told, i haven't been reading my gaming mags such as PCGamer (Us edition) for the past few months. Mainly because of all the coverage given to the FPS(First-Person-Shooter) genre and the lack of RTS(Real-Time-Strategy) game coverage.
This month, however i decided to pick up the mag again because of the coverage of a certain game. (Tips: it involves the colour red.)
Yes my fellow brethen. The classic RTS Red Alert is back in its third incarnation. Promises and hopes of mind control, Tesla weapons, weather machines and brave G.I.s all round.
As good as all of the above sounds however, that is not the real reason for my outpour of joy. In this new chapter of a great saga. The developers have saw fit to include a new faction in the game!! The more the merrier eh??
The new faction included this time around is The Empire Of The Rising Sun. No prizes for guessing which culture it is based on. Be prepared to see loads of ninjas and possibly anime style schoolgirls with weather powers. (I kid not. click the picture above and look closely at the Rising Sun corner.)
Well, after the impressive showing in Command&Conquer 3 i believe EA can do no wrong this time around. Keep ye fingers crossed and ye hopes high for this new installation to the Red Alert saga.
