EA giving Red Alert 1 away for free

Plus: get access to 2 when you pre-order 3.

EA is offering the original Red Alert as a free download from the official series website.

Furthermore, anyone pre-ordering Red Alert 3 will be granted access to Red Alert 2 for no extra cost. UK customers can get their hands on these treats through the EA Store or GAME.

Pre-ordering also nets you a DVD that offers more on poster-woman and real-world fighter Gina Carano, a Red Alert retrospective, and sneak peek at some special game-related videos. There's also a bonus map for Red Alert 3 chucked in.

The deals popped up over the weekend to mark the 13th anniversary of Red Alert 1. Just pop over to the official website to start downloading the 500MB Soviet and Allied discs.
