Electronic Arts (EA) has released a free download of the original Command & Conquer Red Alert on their web site as part of the celebration of its 13th anniversary as a way of marketing their upcoming release Command & Conquer Red Alert 3.

Red Alert 2 free as well?

Yes, you can also get Red Alert 2 for free… as long as you pre-order Red Alert 3. Pretty smart way to market their new game right?

For now, if you have not had the chance to even play Red Alert 1, we encourage you to download it, try it, and share it at your heart’s contempt on FrostWire. I for one, played this game when it first came out until I could no more, it’s a truly entertaining live strategy game you won’t have enough off, I bet you’ll love it.
