Red Alert 1 Beta v0.09c Found and Verified

Recommended Posts


A most unlikely event has just occurred - beta version 0.09c of Command & Conquer: Red Alert has been discovered. The exact source and date of this build is unknown, but the person who found it is Siberian_GRemlin, whom Russian fans may know for his translations of earlier games in the series. Here are some of the differences:

  • there are no countries (subfactions) yet
  • some previously unseen cutscenes appear, including the long-lost shipyard one
  • certain removed voice lines appear, including "It is done" and "Time for a little five-finger discount" which we would only hear in the track Radio 2 Remix
  • rudimentary skirmish AI
  • dev build of the map editor with debug keys
  • a sprite believed to be the cut commando Megan is present

TaxOwlbear got the build early while it was being verified by CCHyper, Nyerguds, Tore and Chad from CnCNet, which is what you see above. More information can be found here, and the download link is here.

This is interesting news!

Well done to all of those involved in allowing this to release into the wild, fascinating as an insight into how Red Alert was developed and also in terms of preserving games from an archival perspective.

Excited to see what else releases over time, gives me hope that there are early builds of Red Alert 2 / Tiberian Sun out there somewhere (I've heard rumours about both existing over the years).

Back in the day Deezire mentioned something about a pre-release version of Tiberian Sun and a 'Red Alert 2 beta' seemed to exist on Russian file-sharing sites, though that could of been click bait.
