Electronic Arts is continuing its “On the House” free game promotional program and is offering the critically acclaimed classic RTS Command & Conquer: Red Strike Bundle free for all Origin members. This Red Strike Bundle combines two Command and Conquer gameplay experiences: the full game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and the expansion pack Command & Conquer: Yuri’s Revenge, allowing gamers to battle through an alternate future controlling the Soviets, the Allies, or Yuri’s psychic armies.
You can grab the game for free for a limited time period on EA’s Origin store here. If you don’t have an Origin account, just create one, it’s free. And as with the other On the House freebies, once you claim the game, you can download and play it whenever you want, even when the game goes back to its original price on Origin. If you’re a fan of classic RTS games, don’t miss out.
Deliver the Fury – the world erupts in conflict as Soviet forces invade American soil in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. Time travel has helped to eliminate the German threat, and now the Soviets are expanding into the West unchecked. You are the Supreme Commander. Arm yourself to the teeth with top-secret technologies and lead the Soviet or Allied troops to victory. Plus, defeat an army of mind-controlled Soviet forces in the expansion Command & Conquer: Yuri’s Revenge.
Many ways to play. Lead Soviet or Allied forces in a gripping single-player game or a Skirmish game, where there’s no particular objective other than destroying everything else on-screen. Who will win the war for world domination?
No need to play nice. You’ll need to pull out all the stops if you’re going to win this war. Thankfully, you’ve got a well-stocked arsenal of legitimate and illicit technologies from Prism Tanks and Terror Drones, to Psychic Mind Control devices and Soviet Cloning Vats. Use them.
Deliver the fury. Dominate land, air, and sea battles with the help of over 80 units and structures. Plus, you’ll benefit from a enhanced veterancy system that turns newbie forces into battle-hardened war machines — and brings you closer to victory.
