Westwood fans in the L.A. area are invited to ICELAN from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for hands-on time with Yuri’s Revenge and a sneak peak at Command & Conquer Renegade. The event is sponsored by iGames, a national organization of game centers.
Yuri’s Revenge is the expansion to the best-selling game, Command & Conquer Red Alert 2. It is the largest expansion pack in Westwood’s history, adding new Allied and Soviet units, two single-player campaigns, multiplayer features, an hour of cinematics, and an entirely new side: Yuri’s psychic forces.
In Red Alert 2, Yuri was a controllable unit on the Soviet side. For the expansion, Yuri breaks from the Soviets and launches his own bid for world domination. Players will take command of a time-traveling task force and go back in time to unravel Yuri’s evil plot.
At the event, members of the Yuri’s Revenge development team will be available to talk with the fans and give gameplay tips and tricks. At the end of the event, iGames will be hosting a single-elimination Yuri’s Revenge tournament. The winners will receive Westwood games and merchandise.
There is no cost to attend the event and space is limited. Anyone wishing to reserve a seat can call ICELAN at (909) 594-3800, or visit their website.
