EA is considering giving Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 fans "portions" of post-release content that focus on one particular part of the game, instead of a single, all-encompassing expansion pack.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com in an interview to be published later this week, producer and C&C TV presenter David Silverman said that EALA would "address the fans' needs faster" by providing "portions" of a traditional expansion pack.

He said: "I don't know if we're going to follow a pipeline of, here's a traditional expansion pack, maybe looking at something that allows us to be a little bit more nimble and address the fans' needs faster by offering portions of that. So instead of, here's your giant massive $40-50 expansion pack, maybe it's, 'oh you want more story?', well here's the campaign expansion, 'you want more multiplayer maps and what not?', here's the multiplayer expansion, 'you want to play co-op?', here's the co-op expansion. If we can start to think about it like that it allows us to be a little bit more nimble and help address the demand from the fans faster."

While the PC version of RTS Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 was released last Friday, the Xbox 360 version won't be out until November 14. A PS3 version is currently in the works but without a release date.

I have been a big fan of Command and Conquer since my youth, and on each new addition to the collection I either upgraded my system or bought a new one to enable me to play the game with full graphic and experience. But the last two offerings from EA games SUCKED. I purchased C&C 3: Tiberium Wars with great excitement, after the General & Zero Hour. What a big disappointment and them when Red Alert 3 came out, maybe EA games would redeem themselves, NO it was even worse. What has happened to EA game since General & Zero Hour?

All Profit NO FUN

To elaborate on yet some more features I'd like in a RA3 expansion....

Please make a skirmish co-op commander for Eva McKenna.
She can intermittenly give you intelligence about the armies and operations your enemy has.
for example: "The enemy has a large airforce, commander"
or: "Maybe you'd like to fortify your defences , sir"
she'll provide with some of these things and adress you via the minimap.
Also when you choose her as your co-op commander she'll acknowlegde your directions in a similar fashion as the other commanders. This could also be done for the russian intelligence officer and the japanese one.
(but I just love how Gemma Atkinson plays Eva.. truely a work of art)

Also I'd like to see a Flame Tank and Flamethrower infantry on the soviet side.
And please bring back a form of the Prism Tank for the allies (and then I majorly talk about it's range and power.)

Oh another thing that kind of bugs me a bit.
Why do the power basic power generators provide so damn little power.
I think they should be:
150 for Soviets and 200 for Allies and Empire
Soviets have little less but they still have the super power generator.

I think with this as my second post I have pretty much al what I truely would like to see.

I would like to see subfactions:
* Soviets:
1) Russia: Tesla Tank special unit, enhanced Stingray
2) "other country": bring back the desolator please, gattling weapons.
* Allies:
1) Germany: Tank Destroyers, Missile Frigates (ships with long range missile bombardments.)
2) "other country" some dedicated Anti-Air tank using rapid fire chainguns.
* Empire: 2 subfactions that consist of special tactics used by the japanese.
1) subfaction: using advanced transformation units
i.e. Striker VX can transform to Chopper VX and combine with a Tsunami Tank to create a tank with heavy missile launchers (and other ideas)
2) subfaction: Has actual airbase as building, can build Chopper VX, Jet Tengu, Ski Wing as base unit. Has repackable defensive structures. Wave-Force Artillery can deploy to Wave-Force turret.

Furthermore: A new building that has a sole purpose to upgrade weapons performance (increasing weaponsdamage) and armor. (for each race)
Also I like to see nucleasr weapons back, they were more or less a soviet trademark.
And I would like to see the old orefield back, I liked them better as the new ore mechanic (just a personal opinion)

I also like more skirmish maps
that idea of the unit creator is cool to!

Better faction optimising and much better powers. Here are some of the examples: The Empire power, (sorry, but i forgot the name) which should be some kind of ambush, is totaly useless. Five very weak soldiers come poppin' out of the ground with a speed of a snail! Then they, of course, get killed, and you now have to wait for the "cool power" to recharge after a few minutes. Then, some powers, like the American Time Bomb, are very frustrating. Imagine this: you build a cool force after 10 minutes of defending against the enemy, and you're finally happy, and want to attack. You expect a nice and fair fight and enemy retaliation. Oh, but no, they just hit you with a bomb you can't destroy, and blow up half of your force. Is this the game that requires a good strategy and thinking? I'm not sure. And finally, the simillar case, this time with the Soviets. They have some kind of ray that sucks your units into space. If we don't count this, the game is nice, but needs a lot of patches and mods. And where are all of the good-old units? Why is everything all so futuristic? Why havent they saved this for C&C3? And why the hell did they change the awesome Rhino tank with this SCI-Fi Hammer tank???
