Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge Marches Onto Consoles This Fall

Comrades, the Red Alert 3 battle rages on! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced Command & Conquer™ Red Alert™ 3 Commander’s Challenge, a new console gaming experience for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network from the storied Command & Conquer franchise. The new game will challenge players to take on the world’s toughest commanders and conquer the globe in 50 unique challenges when it is released this fall. Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Commander’s Challenge delivers trademark fast and action-packed C&C gameplay, tongue-in-cheek live-action cinematics, new units and a new game mode for just 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and $9.99 at the PlayStation Store.

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge launches players into action-packed scenarios while going head-to-head against ruthless commanders who will stop at nothing to crush your army,” said Wes Eckhart, Producer of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge at EA Los Angeles. “Commander’s Challenge delivers the ultimate RTS gameplay experience console players have been craving. Delivering over thirty hours of RTS entertainment, it is an incredible value at less than $10.”

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge throws the player into 50 intense challenges against a set of nine different commanders, including 16-time world champion “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Each challenge features its very own over-the-top and distinctive twist, confronting players with everything from giant Soviet war bears and an entire army of psionic Japanese school girls to massive satellite orbital bombardments. As players progress throughout the gauntlet, they gradually unlock more units, technology and new challenges. Additionally, each challenge is equipped with a par time set by the dev team that is up to the most competitive players to beat. Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge offers more than classic Red Alert action gameplay and will allow players to command their forces by air, land and sea, as introduced by the award-winning Command & Conquer™ Red Alert™ 3.

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge is being developed at EA Los Angeles and will be available this summer on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the PlayStation Store.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
