Previously exclusive to the PC version of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3, EA is bringing the Commander's Challenge add-on to consoles next season, adding much-needed (Ric) Flair.
The Commander's Challenge add-on provides the player with a series of 50 challenges against a set of nine different commanders, one of which is "Nature Boy" Ric Flair of wrestling fame. As players progress through the various challenges, they unlock new units, new technology, and even more challenges, until eventually they finish the final one and fall back on the couch, completely spent.
Basically it's a whole slew of new content, which is always good. I just hope they price it as an amazing value.
"Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge launches players into action-packed scenarios while going head-to-head against ruthless commanders who will stop at nothing to crush your army," said Wes Eckhart, Producer of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander's Challenge at EA Los Angeles. "Commander's Challenge delivers the ultimate RTS gameplay experience console players have been craving. Delivering over thirty hours of RTS entertainment, it is an incredible value at less than $US10."
Oh thank goodness! I worried for nothing.
The Commander's Challenge will be released before the end of the year for 800 Microsoft points and $US9.99 PlayStation real monies respectively.
