Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 is a real-time strategy video game in the Command & Conquer series published by Electronic Arts, and the first game in the Red Alert sub-series since Yuri's Revenge, released in 2001. The game was developed by EA Los Angeles for Windows-based PCs, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 — it's the first Command & Conquer real-time strategy title ever to be produced for the PlayStation 3. It was announced on February 14, 2008. The game takes place in a parallel universe in which the Soviet Union still exists and World War III is ongoing between the Soviets, Allies and a third faction known as the Empire of the Rising Sun, which is derived from Imperial Japan.

After the events in Red Alert 2, the leadership of the doomed Soviet Union devises a plan to travel back in time in order to change history and restore the Soviet Union as a world power. During the mission, something goes wrong and an alternate timeline is inadvertently created, which alters the technological evolution and creates a new superpower in the East known as the Empire of the Rising Sun. World War III begins among the Soviets, the Allies and the Empire and is fought with exotic weaponry such as "Tesla coils, heavily armed War Blimps, teleportation, armored bears, intelligent dolphins, floating island fortresses, and transforming tanks".
