EA's Next Free PC Game Now Available on Origin

Goodbye, Zuma's Revenge, hello Command & Conquer Red Alert 2.


Electronic Arts has announced the next free game it's offering to PC players through Origin. Available now for free is Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. The 2000 RTS game was designed by Dustin Browder, who has since joined Blizzard Entertainment. Red Alert 2 replaces Zuma's Revenge, which was free since July.

Red Alert 2 (and the Yuri's Revenge expansion) is free through Origin's "On the House" promotion. Head to the Origin website to download the game now. This is the full game to keep forever. The only "catch" is that On the House offers can vanish at any time, so if you're interested, you may want to act quickly.

GameSpot's Red Alert 2 review scored the game an 8.5/10.

"Red Alert 2 offers lots of challenges and variety for real-time strategy players of all skill levels, and it'll be particularly fun for fans of previous Command & Conquer games," we wrote back in 2000.

Games previously made available through the On the House promotion include Syndicate (the original), Peggle, Battlefield 3, Dead Space, Plants vs. Zombies, and Dragon Age: Origins, among others.
