EA puts 3 Command & Conquer games online as free downloads

For the low, low price of zero, you can pick up the game that started it all

In between established titles and expansion packs, there have been 18 Command & Conquer games released over the last 15 years. Unless you're a real-time strategy fanatic, it's doubtful that you've been able to experience the entire breadth of gameplay the series has served up, and knowing where to start can be daunting for newcomers. Thankfully, EA's provided a pretty good jumping-off point by putting up four of the most notable entries in the series up on its Command & Conquer site as a free download.

For the low, low price of zero, you can pick up the game that started it all, Command & Conquer/; Tiberian Dawn, its hit follow-up Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and the one-two punch of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun and its expansion Firestorm. These four games represent a hearty chunk of the first five year's of Command & Conquer's history, which should prepare you well for the next chapter of the saga when it releases on March 16.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
