Like C&C3, But With Better Water

Your attention, Comrades. Beneath the cut is the first trailer for Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, which has popped up on the face of the internet like some sort of damned-pinko-commie-scum pimple outbreak just this afternoon (in Her Majesty's Royal Imperial Commonwealth All That Is Right Time anyway - presumably it's some godforsaken hour in the morning for ye Yanquis). It brings with it a release date of sorts - October, apparently.

What will immediately have fans squealing is the return of the original RA's Hell March RA2's Hell March theme, as composed by Frank Klepacki - who I believe now hangs his hat on Petroglyph's, er, hatstand rather than EA's, so presumably this is just a straight re-using. Never quite understood the fuss about RA's music myself, but it's perhaps reassuring that the game's looking to its heritage so.

Other than that? Yep, looks like Red Alert alright. Remarkably pretty water and 'splodes. What looks like a hint of the rumoured Gundamy new Japanese race. And no sign, far as I can tell, of the parachuting armoured bears we've been tantalised with the prospect of. Perhaps I'm not looking closely enough - decide for yourself below.

Thanks to Evo for the tip-off, beating me to my daily Gametrailers trawl by mere minutes.
