The Red Alert 2 mission disk is the largest expansion pack in Westwood's history, adding to the real-time strategy game new Allied units, new Soviet units, new single player campaigns, new multiplayer features, new co-operative campaigns, an hour of filmed story sequences, and an entirely new side: an Army lead by the mysterious psychic warrior, Yuri.
In the original Red Alert 2, Yuri was a controllable unit on the Soviet side. For the mission disk, Yuri breaks from the Soviets and launches his own bid for world domination through psychic technology. Players will take command of a time-traveling task force and go back in time to unravel Yuri's evil plot.
"We were thrilled with the success of Red Alert 2 and really wanted to build on the gameplay for the expansion pack, rather than just add missions," said Mark Skaggs, executive producer of Red Alert 2 and its expansion. "This is the largest, most involved expansion pack in Westwood's history, and we're bringing some really exciting gameplay to our fans."
Key Features of the RA2 Mission Disk:
· Three sides - In multiplayer mode, the player can choose to play any of three sides: the Allies, Soviets, or the new faction: Yuri's psychic army.
· Fourteen new solo campaign missions - Players will chose to lead either the Allies or the Soviets against the new global threat, Yuri.
· Ten new co-op campaign missions - New campaigns to fight with a partner over a LAN or the Internet.
· New units and tech buildings - Thirty new units, vehicles and tech buildings, which present players with new strategic challenges and opportunities.
· Exotic Locales - Players fight and take control of exotic cities all over the earth, and beyond, such as San Francisco, Sydney, Hollywood, Seattle, London, Cairo, Transylvania and even the moon.
Westwood Studios will continue its tradition of producing movie-quality cut scenes in the mission disk. The original Red Alert 2 live-action cast, including Udo Kier as Yuri and Kari Wuhrer as Tanya, will return to Westwood this month to film the cut-scenes that will advance the story during gameplay.
