TransGaming to Bring EA’s Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 to Mac

| Games

TransGaming late on Thursday announced that it will bring Electronic Arts' Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 to the Mac in March. The strategy game, which was published for PC and Xbox 360 last fall but isn't due on PlayStation 3 until next month, continues the story of a parallel timeline in which World War II never happened and the United States and Soviet Union are at war, with the Empire of the Rising Sun's advanced tecbhnology playing a wild card.

The campaign allows players to take control of all three factions through co-operative missions where they align with other players over the Internet or with computer-controlled commanders. Red Alert 3 also brings in naval warfare as a major component, with resources to be harvested from the oceans and territory to conquer.

The last Command & Conquer game to appear on the Mac was C&C 3: Tiberium Wars, which EA published directly on the platform in 2007. Unfortunately, the Kane's Wrath expansion pack never appeared. Red Alert is a separate part of the C&C universe, as is the Generals series, which Aspyr brought to the Mac in 2004.

Red Alert 3 will sell for US$29.95 and require Mac OS X version 10.5.6, an Intel Core Duo processor, 1GB RAM, an ATI X1600 or NVIDIA 7300GT or better video card, and 10GB of hard disk space.
