GameTree Online Taking EA Preorders
11:39 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

GameTree Online has begun taking preorders for two anxiously awaited EA titles: the previously unannounced Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 and Spore Galactic Adventures.

New to Macintosh gamers, the Red Alert series of games takes place in an alternate timeline from the main Command & Conquer series. The Soviets use a time machine to go back in time and eliminate Albert Einstein, in the hopes of weakening the Allies' military position in the future. But, not only has the Allies position weakened, but they're actions have spawned a new faction, the Empire of the Rising Sun. In Red Alert 3, you can play as all three factions, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and technology.

Features

Red Alert 3 brings back everything fans love about the series, the humor, the popcorn style story and the franchise's fast, action-oriented gameplay, while breaking new ground for the genre, with an entirely co-operative, story-driven campaign campaign mode and an increased emphasis on naval gameplay.

Co-Op Done Right - Every mission is designed from the ground-up with co-operative gameplay in mind. Join forces and strategize with friends online or join forces with nine AI commanders, three for each faction, all of whom have their own unique personality and style of play that might come in handy depending on the situation.

Command the Seas, Conquer the World - Experience Gameplay as for the first time in the series, waging war on the water will be every bit as important as dominating by land and air. Gain strategic advantages by controlling resources in the seas and mounting three-pronged attacks from all directions.

A New Threat from the East - The Empire of the Rising Sun is a technological terror, with unit designs influenced by a mixture of science-fiction, martial arts and robot culture. The Empire's futuristic units can transform into alternate forms, and they specialize in naval warfare.

Star-Studded Storytelling - Command & Conquer's trademark live-action videos return in HD, with over 60 minutes of footage featuring the largest cast in the history of the Command & Conquer franchise.

Spore Galactic Adventures takes the final stage of the original game to new depths, as players take on new quests, rewards, and missions designed by Maxis.
Play Maxis created adventures - solve the mystery of the Energy Crystals, help Barbaros defeat Gangor in the Arena of Death and more.

Upgrade your space creature with new game-changing accessories and abilities including the Plasma Pulser and Hypnomelder.

Create and share your own unique missions on personalized planets with the all-new Adventure Creator.

Spore Galactic Adventures requires either Spore or Spore Creature Creator to play.
