Found 13th Feb 2010Made hot 13th Feb 2010
For the first time ever, EA has released free games.

So for free

Command & Conquer
Command & Conquer: Red Alert
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

I believe it will need XP to get them to work, not sure on Windows Vista or windows 7. Worth a shot.

Awesome deal!!!!!!!!!

I recommend trying Red Alert and if you can look past the dated the dated graphics but enjoy the gameplay, definitely go pick up Red Alert 2/Yuris Revenge double pack for a fiver from Game or wherever. Just superb in every way over the original and still gets regularly played in my house.

Working for me now. Just keep trying! Allied Disc of Rd Alert is 500mb

Yep link is working again.

Just downloaded Tiberian Sun in just over 3 mins. Virgin 50Mb broadband I love you.....lol.

I remember being one of the first to get BT Broadband back in the day and at 60kB/s I was an INTERNET GOD!

Kids today etc.

Red Alert 2 is I think the best in the series.

So much better in both game play terms and weirdly enough Graphics, than RA3.

I don't know how EA managed to make RA3 look worse than RA2.

Agreed. I've been a fan of the C&C games since Westwood Studios made them, but I hated RA3, absolute rubbish.

cracking freebie!!

imo still the easiest rts to pick and play due to its excellent and mostly intuitive controls.....unlike Company of Heroes - gave up after 30mins in frustration with its terrible control system

red alert was one of the first decent games to start online multiplayer I believe
Fantastic, still have it lying around somewhere. although starcraft was pritty good to

I'm going to give RA3 another go, if only for Tim Curry. Must admit though, I think a lot of people still like the simplicity of the old school 'tank rush' C&C games.

I had a 14k modem, I was the envy of all my 9k mates ;-)

Does anyone know how to install Tiberian Sun? I've unzipped it, can't figure what to do next. I don't have a CD drive but I have a virtual DVD/CD that I can mount.

I'd give it a go just for the bird from hollyoaks!



C&C4 is available for pre-order for £22.99 here:

hotukdeals.com/ite…380

Cheapest i've found, plus I've put a link in there to the free open beta which you can download and play now! Would definately suggest trying before ordering as it may be be complete carp!

TO PLAY TIBERIAN SUN:

* Unzip the .RAR file to C:\Program Files directory, after completion the file structure should begin with the EA Games folder

* Simply click the "Play Tiberian Sun" shortcut in the EA Games folder

from: na.llnet.cnc3tv.ea.com/u/f…tml

The instructions for Red Alert installations are here: cncworld.org/?pa…ree

and C&C: cncworld.org/?pa…ree

Nice freebie

Many thanks, if you unzip this to any other folder the "play Tiberian Sun" icon doesn't show.

I've gave you some rep, :thumbsup:

Excellent find - heat added and thanks to the OP
One query: which folder do you unpack the .rar to in Windows 7 64-bit? C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files(x86)\ ?

x86 mate

You got me thinking when you mentioned the graphics - it could pass as an arcade game now, on XBLA/PSN. They really overcomplicated everything in RA3 IMO. The superweapon upgrade system was dire, and should have been left to just having 1 kick-ass superpower per faction. How immense were the Nukes, or the French cannon thing, or an army of V3 rockets or the IFV+ Chrono guys? Awesome awesome awesome.:-D

Tiberian Sun - awesome game! =)

a good find this, heat added.

Great Deal. Which is the newest of all these? or did they all come out at a similar time (my best bets the tiberian wars one is the newest?)

Tiberian Sun was the best one ever made

Great find, thanks, but need a bit of help, i keep getting one or more dll file missing error message when trying to launch the game for tiberian sun

Quick thing to point out; when you extract it you NEED to put it at the root of program files. Dont worry you wont have loads of loose files everywhere, it makes a folder for you named EA Games...

I think your clicking on the wrong one, I got a similar message. Click 'Game' under the SUN folder

If not that make sure you extracted the file in the root of program files.

Fixed it, had to run as admin...
