Patch 1.02 for Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath was released in December 2008, and was the final official patch for the game.

It is the default version installed in Steam and Origin distributions of the game, including the release within The Ultimate Collection compilation. It is the only version to be properly installed in these releases, as .skudef files for versions 1.00 and 1.01 are omitted from them, disabling version switching with the '-runver' parameter.

The downloadable patch executable includes all the patches that were released before it, with the exception of the .skudef files from version 1.01. These can be downloaded individually from Electronic Arts' FTP server.

A patch 1.03 was announced by community manager Aaron "APOC" Kaufman in July 2009, but development of Red Alert 3 patches 1.11 and 1.12, and the then-freshly announced Tiberian Twilight, as well as Ladder Season 3, prevented the team from developing and releasing this patch.[1]
