Red Alert 3 DL Add-on Nears

Eurogamer has news on Red Alert 3: Uprising, a PC-exclusive expansion for EA's RTS sequel, to be released via digital distribution through the EA Store in March. They report the add-on will pick up where the original game leaves off, offering four mini-campaigns (two for the Japanese, and one for each other faction), new gameplay, new units, and of course, more cut-scenes. There will also be a Commander's Challenge mode, "where you can fight against nine commanders from different territories and difficulty levels in 50 challenges with special rules and conditions."

Digital Distribution? EA Store? The same EA store that still charges 46€ for RA3 when you can get it for less than 20€-£ from UK retail stores?
Six months download limit? No discount for RA3 owners? Laugh

Not even 3 months from RA3 release, with bugs and balance problems still needing patching and they already announce an STANDALONE expansion, out in 3 months?

Kane's Wrath took a full year to be developed and released after C&C3 and still was bugged and imbalanced (according to users, never liked C&C3 so didn't try it).

Do EA still want us to think they really care about existing customers in the long term? Better talk about milking the cow.

BTW, I think RA3 faction/general design and gameplay mechanics are quite good (as opposed to C&C3) but they just haven't taken enough time to polish it, campaigns missions for example feel bland, generic and unchallenging. I'd rather replay RA2 campaigns than RA3's.

On a side note Uprising preorder already available in EA Store for 20€ for those still interested.
