Gemma Atkinson in her uniform. That’s pretty much all you need to know. Other actors shouting about the “Commies,” crushing the Empire and whatnot. To be honest, the whole thing looks like a ton of fun.

EA’s confirmed that SecuROM copy protection is to be used on Red Alert 3, despite the fact Spore’s been hammered by complaints about the system.
The settings aren’t going to be as stringent this time round though, said an EA staffer in this forum post.
- We will authenticate your game online when you install and launch it the first time.
- We will never re-authenticate an installation online after the first launch. In other words, no reaching out to a central server post-install to see if you’re “allowed” to play.
- You will be able to install and play on up to five computers.
- This system means you don’t have to play with the disc in your computer. Personally, I think this is a huge improvement over our previous copy protection requirements, which have always required a disk to play.
- Life happens. I know it’s unlikely, but for those unlucky few who install the game and have their machines nuked (virus, OS reinstall, major hardware upgrade, etc.) five times, EA Customer Service will be on hand to supply any additional authorizations that are warranted. This will be done on a case-by-case basis by contacting customer support.
-You can, of course, play offline without impediment or penalty.
Wow. You can play a game you paid for offline without “impediment or penalty.” We truly live in the modern age.

This is obvious. EA’s announced that those pre-ordering strategy sequel Red Alert 3 will get an exclusive helmet for use in WAR that allows your character to turn into a bear.
There’s not really a huge amount more to say. Other than “what?”

EA’s announced pre-order incentives for Red Alert 3 today, the best part of which is that you get Red Alert 2 free with your purchase.
More stuff you get for taking the early plunge includes a bonus multiplayer map and a DVD featuring:
What could possibly be better than that? The RTS sequel’s out in November.

After the link. There’s no denying the quality here, and EA was heavy on the RA3 announcements this morning. It’s a big deal. Watch the movie to see why.

According to this Eurogamer piece, you can now download a Gemma Atkinson theme for your 360 now.
For a meagre 150 MS Points, you can have the Red Alert 3 starlet draped over your blades forever and a day. Oddly, she’s dressed in a flimsy white thing, which bears no relation whatsoever to the game itself. Not really in keeping with her character, is it?

Ex-Hollyoaks lady Gemma Atkinson is being “touched up” for Red Alert 3, as you can see in this BBC behind the scenes look at the game’s development at EA LA.
“Right now I’m doing a little colour correcting to bring out [Gemma's] beauty even more,” said the game’s visual effects supervisor.
The Gemma bit’s at about 2.00 in that movie.

On CVG. We could write words, but we won’t. The poor love appears to have lost her trousers.

Ex-Hollyoaks woman Gemma Atkinson is to appear in Red Alert 3 as Lt Eva McKenna. So there you are.
“I’m a gamer and the chance to act in one of the best loved videogames was an opportunity I was really keen to explore – especially as Eva is such a strong female character,” said Atkinson in a statement.
“The worlds of gaming and film are getting ever closer and as an actress I wanted to explore this exciting new area of drama, broaden my acting skills and continue the active, outgoing side of my personality that I showed in I’m A Celebrity.”
No words necessary, really. Press release after the link.

Pro-Gamers has posted 20 new screens from “Alerte Rouge 3,” and very nice the RTS looks too. We wouldn’t like to be going up against StarCraft II later this year, but there we are. Take a look.

EA’s just confirmed to videogaming247 that Red Alert PS3 has definitely been put on hold. A PR rep issued the following statement:
“We can confirm that the development of Red Alert 3 for PS3 has been put on hold. EA LA is focusing resources on development for PC and Xbox 360 which will ship simultaneously this autumn.”
And that’s that. No one seems to know quite why the PS3 version’s been pushed back and it doesn’t sound like there’s going to be any comment on this other than the above right now.
The news solidified properly last night when GameStop was rumoured to have pulled the SKU.

PSU is reporting that according to its GameStop source, EA has removed Command and Conquer: Red Alert PS3 from their release list.
Apparently the game’s community development manager has told the site the he “can’t speak of the PS3 version right now.”
The PlayStation SKU was recently rumoured to be running into problems after it was left out of listed formats at the end of a trailer. Looks as though the fears were well-founded.
No official word from EA as yet.

EA’s put out a video of 15 minutes of proper Red Alert 3 gameplay, and it’s all looking very nice but a bit standard, thankyouverymuch. The core “fun” and “accessibility” stuff is there in spades, but we have to admit that we’re not quite as turned on for this as we were after the first trailer. Looks good, though. See for yourself.

“Wow”. After the link. The RTS sequel releases at the end of this year for PC, 360 and PS3. Stunning stuff.

According to this, access to the beta for anticipated strategy update Red Alert 3 will be bundled with a C&C3 Collection pack in the US.
The pack contains 45 single-player missions from C&C3, apparently, and loads of other stuff. It sounds like its the only way you’re going to get on the RA3 beta as well, which is nice of EA.
