Tencent and EA Release Red Alert Smartphone Game in China

Tencent, in partnership with EA, has released a Red Alert smartphone game in China. It’s not a real time strategy game, but the graphic style is similar to Command & Conquer: Red Alert.

Red Alert Online is the first Command & Conquer game to be officially licensed for Android. The game is released by Tencent on the Chinese market and is also made specifically for that. The game is not in the Google Play Store and a western release seems out of the question.

There is a gameplay video on a Chinese website. In Red Alert Online, players can build a base and command troops. The graphic style is similar to the classic Red Alert games, but the gameplay is different and more in line with Clash of Clans.

EA released a Red Alert game for iOS in 2009, but the strategy games from the Command & Conquer series have never appeared for smartphones.
