Red Alert 3 will tell the story of how the Soviet Union changed history. In an attempt to bring back the might and power of Mother Russia, the Soviets travel back in time (awesome plan!). Of course, things went sour and an alternate timeline was created, introducing mankind to a different evolution of technology.
Before you know it, a brand new superpower takes center stage and the entire globe plunges into World War III. That's right, the game gives you the opportunity to try a completely new faction. If you can recall, the previous Red Alert games offered American, Soviet and European forces, but now players will also be introduced to the Empire of the Rising Sun (a.k.a. The Japanese Empire).
