The classic real time strategy game, Command and Conquer, is now available for free. I’m sure we’ve all played it at one stage or other, but how well has it weathered, is it as good as we remember? I’m a little dubious but may well give it a go anyway – afterall – it’s free 🙂 The install process is a little cumbersome, you have to download the file and then burn it to a cd or use something like Daemon to run the file – it’s not a massive roadblock though and once downloaded you should be up and running pretty quickly.

In order to give back to the fans for over 12 years of devotion we are putting together a 12th Anniversary celebration during the month of September. However, as any Command & Conquer fan knows, the true party starts today, August 31st, which marks 12 years since the original Command & Conquer launched way back in 1995.

To kick the celebration off, today we have a special surprise which we are certain new and old Command & Conquer fans will enjoy. We are providing the original Command & Conquer as a free download, compatible for Windows XP! This is the same version included with the collectors pack Command & Conquer: The First Decade, and is now available for you to download for free!
