EA will release Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising in March, this expansion will be available as a digital download only for $19.99.
Picking up in the aftermath of the events in the original, Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising features an eclectic cast starring in the all new, live-action movie sequences the Command & Conquer franchise is known for. From sci- fi legends to rising starlets and masters of the squared-circle, the cast of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising includes (in alphabetical order): Jamie Chung, (Dragonball Evolution), Ric Flair (16-time world heavyweight wrestling champion), Malcolm McDowell (Heroes, Clockwork Orange, Wing Commander), Jodi Lyn O’Keefe (Prison Break), Holly Valance (Neighbours) along with returning fan-favorites Gemma Atkinson and Ivana Milicevic.
“Quality live-action movies and storytelling have always been a unique component to the Command & Conquer DNA and we wanted to make sure we did things right with Uprising,” said Amer Ajami, Senior Producer at EA Los Angeles. “We are really pleased we were able to assemble another large and talented ensemble for Uprising, and we think our fans are going to be pleased by everyone’s performances not only in the cutscenes, but also in Commander’s Challenge, where you’ll actually be battling some of our stars.”
Just like in RA3 we're going to see lots of TV actors, first up is Holly Valance, she is known from Neighbours and will play the role of journalist Brenda Snow.
Another new hottie is Jamie Chung, she played in Dragonball Evolution and will join the Japanese side in Uprising:
And here's Jodi Lyn O’Keefe from Prison Break, she'll play the role of Kelly Weaver but more details about her character aren't available yet.
Other new actors that will play a prominent role in Uprising are Ric Flair (16-time world heavyweight wrestling champion) and Malcolm McDowell (Heroes, Clockwork Orange, Wing Commander). Ric Flair will star as Commander Hill, a commander players will have to take on in the new Commander's Challenge Mode.
Malcolm McDowell on the other hand will take up the role of Rupert Thornley, the president of the European Union.
“When I found out that EA wanted me to be part of Command & Conquer, all I could say was ‘Woooooooooooo!’” said 16-time world heavyweight champion, Ric Flair, who stars as Commander Hill, a commander players will have to take on in the new Commander’s Challenge mode. “I had a great time on set and whiIe I may have retired from the ring, I think my fans are going to love seeing the “Nature Boy” style and profile his way to victory. I know my kids are going to have a great time trying to take it to me on the battlefield.”
Malcolm McDowell, who plays Rupert Thornley, the president of the European Union, and had previously starred in the live-action movies for the Wing Commander franchise, added, “It’s great to be working with good actors and the more good actors you can get to do games, the better. In the past people might have thought you could get away with anything in games and that isn’t a good attitude. Kids are spending a lot of money and time on these games and they deserve first rate performers and I’m glad to say that this is what Uprising is.”
