    FREE C&C Red Alert game (EA download)

    HERE

    This Sunday, August 31st, 2008 marks the 13th anniversary of the storied Command & Conquer franchise, which has sold over 25 million copies* to date. And to celebrate Sunday’s milestone and this October’s highly anticipated return to the world of Red Alert with Red Alert 3, EA Los Angeles is giving away one of the original games that started it all, Command & Conquer Red Alert, for FREE.

    Starting at 12:00 AM Pacific time on August 31st, C&C fanatics can flock to www.RedAlert3.com to download the original Red Alert free of charge. And because EA is also offering Red Alert 2 for free for those who pre-order Red Alert 3 before October 27th, C&C fans can walk away with Red Alert, Red Alert 2 and Red Alert 3 – all for the price of Red Alert 3 ($49.99 standard edition, $64.99 Premier Edition).

    Cool,
    I never really played the original, but I loved Red Alert 2, I'm going to be downloading this for sure!

    edit: Is this just for America or can us Brits get it?

    Just in case any one downloads this for win2000 version 4.30.1 does not work, version 4.03 does work.

    But I cannot get the Red Alert installer to run, wants win95 to be running, I can create a shortcut but it has no Compatibility tab.

    EDIT:
    doh just re-read 'PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE DOWNLOADING:'

    -This software contains support for Windows XP/98/Me/95 with installation instructions

    Seems all the mirrors have been linking to North America. However, if you change the na part of the address to eu, then you'll get a much faster link.

    Soviet link: http://eu.llnet.cnc3tv.ea.com/u/f/ea...SovietDisc.rar
    Allied link http://eu.llnet.cnc3tv.ea.com/u/f/ea...AlliedDisc.rar

    You can still go through the official site and get to the links if you want: http://www.ea.com/redalert/news-detail.jsp?id=62
