EA has announced that Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition will be released for PS3 in March 2009.

The PlayStation 3 missed out on the latest instalment in the award-winning RTS series last year, but EA is hoping to make up for this with a host of new content that will be packed onto the Blu-ray game disc.

The Ultimate Edition will feature everything from last year's game, plus the following content:

- Five exciting new multiplayer maps

- Behind the scenes videos and trailers, including Raising the Iron Curtain Documentary, From Pens to Pixels, the Girls of Red Alert 3, Bloopers & Outtakes, the Red Alert 3 Remix and many more!

- PS3 exclusive Command & Conquer TV programming, including PS3-dedicated BattleCast PrimeTime and a special episode of Command School focused on tips, tricks and strategies from the development team

- In-depth profiles on all the Red Alert 3 Units

- The official Red Alert 3 soundtrack

David Seeholzer, Development Director at EA Los Angeles noted that the extra development time has allowed the team to create the ultimate console RTS.

"The PS3 is a very powerful platform, and the extra time we have had in development has helped us create the ultimate console RTS experience, with better graphics, improved performance, a ton of extras and some nice exclusive perks that cannot be found on any other version of Red Alert 3," said Seeholzer.

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition is scheduled for release in March 2009 for PS3.
