EA gives away Red Alert

And Red Alert 2 as well if you pre-order the third game

EA is feeling generous. As a special treat for C&C fans ahead of the release of Red Alert 3, it is giving away the first Red Alert game for free.

There's no catch, either. No bloody registry or anything - just go here and hit download link to start sapping the game down your internets. Then burn the ISO to a CD and you're good to go. It feels like piracy, but isn't.

You can get Red Alert 2 for free too, but for that you'll need to pre-order Red Alert 3 at participating stores. Still, not a bad deal.

Thanks EA! The games industry should do this more often.
