EA’s On the House program has a new offering this morning. Out goes Zuma, and in comes a classic real-time strategy game.

Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 is available for free via EA’s Origin platform. Originally released in 2000 by now-defunct Westwood Studios, the On the House version comes with the Yuri’s Revenge expansion and all of the delicious cheese of live-action cutscenes.

Red Alert and its sequel take place in an alternate timeline in which Soviet Russia attempts a European takeover. Players can assume the roles of the allied forces or play as the Soviets.

EA’s On the House page says that its severs are overloaded with download requests for the title. It’ll be available again soon.
