Electronic Arts has confirmed the return of veteran infantry unit Tanya in the forthcoming Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3, further adding that it is confident the game will arrive this “holiday season.”
“Tanya's back and better than ever," said EA Producer Chris Corry, during an interview with Eurogamer. "As probably the most beloved character from this series, you can trust we're staying true to the Tanya of old while giving her some new toys to play with."
"For example she has a Time Belt ability that, when triggered by the player, will warp her back to the state (location and health) that she was in a few seconds prior."
Corry further added that the addition of cooperative play and emphasis on Naval warfare is just “the tip of the iceberg" in regards to what players can expect from the Real Time Strategy (RTS) title.
Unfortunately, he also revealed that console owners would not be given the opportunity to participate in the upcoming beta test for the game, which is open to those who purchase the Command and Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath expansion pack.
