Freeware of the Day: Pretty Much Every Classic Command & Conquer Game
Geekosystem will periodically tip its readers off to classic commercial games that are now available for free! In today’s installment: EA releases decade-old classics Command & Conquer, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn from the depths of its vast IP vault.
So! Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is being released soon, and EA is releasing the original three games in the series in an attempt to whip fans into a frenzy.
(Although I, personally, have never met a Command & Conquer fan, or seen reliable indications of an online metafictional following! Please do not send us Tanya slashfiction, either. That is most unwelcome.)
Anyway, Command & Conquer, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn are now available for the small, small price, of digging out an ISO-handling program like Daemontools.
