C&C Red Alert

It starts out that Albert Einstein invents time travel. He then uses it to assassinate Hitler, therefore preventing World War II as we know it. Since there is no hitler, the USA and it’s allies (The Allies (Allied)) have a new menace. This is about the time the soviet union was starting to crumble. But Joseph Stalin reunites the Soviet Union therefore making it one faction in the games.

What starts the entire conflict is the Soviets movement into Europe. They just about take control of Europe until the US and Turkey were able to assist the French and British. Therefore The factions for Red Alert are as follows:

Allies:

  • America
  • Great Britain
  • France
  • Germany
  • Spain
  • Greece
  • Turkey

Soviets:

  • Russia
  • Ukraine

C&C Red Alert 2 & Yuri’s Revenge

Red Alert 2 would end up being the same, but as if the Allies won against the Soviets with an invasion of Moscow, Russia. In irony, that is how this game will end too, with another invasion of Moscow. This time the soviets cannot come close to winning with the Allies Prism Technology. Although they had used Nuclear technology to their benefit, the Prism technology was too much for the Soviets to handle. The factions in RA2 are similar but very different:

Allies:

  • United States
  • Germany
  • France
  • Great Britain
  • Korea (North and South are one country)

Soviet

  • Libya
  • Cuba
  • Iraq
  • Russia

 

C&C Red Alert 3 & Uprising

Red Alert 3’s story is about the ending of Red Alert 2. It starts with the invasion of Moscow. Just before the Kremlin is completely overrun, a commander and a general go down to a top-secret project. They have remade Einstein’s time machine for their own purpose. So they go back in time to assassinate Einstein. It is successful and of course, the time-space continuum has been ripped. Therefore the Allies no longer have created the Prism Technology. But they end up having teleportation and vacuum technology. The soviets no longer have nuclear weapons, because of not having Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. The faction again have changed, but now there is another faction, Japan. While the Allies and Soviets were fighting Japan rose up with a mechanized army.

Allies:

  • Great Britain
  • France
  • United States
  • Netherlands

Soviet:

  • Russia
  • Ukraine
  • Georgia

Empire of the Rising Sun:
