Command & Conquer: Red Alert free this week end
« on: August 29, 2008, 01:57:33 PM »
Apparently Electronic Arts decided a move to promote their upcoming RTS Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. This week-end only (starting on Sunday), the first Command & Conquer: Red Alert will be in free download to mark the 13th Anniversary of the series from http://www.redalert3.com

That's an offer that could interest bobdog   :purplelaugh:

The other bargain is to get Red Alert 2 free for pre-ordering Red Alert 3 but well, that sounds much less attractive.

Well, if you're a RTS fan and never played C&C: RA, here's your chance.

Original words about this came from Blue's News


Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. -- A. Einstein

I'm all over "Free", but I suck at RTS, so I'll have to pass on this one.  :P

I also suck at RTS's, but will give it a shot anyway!:D

I once owed Red Alert from a 4-game pack that went missing at some point, and while I never got very far in it, I loved the premise, so even if it just gets backed-up to cd for later use, I'll be happy. There's apparently a bunch of promotional information stored in the .rar files, but the original cd/iso files are untouched within.
