Red Alert: A Path Beyond brings the exciting storyline and epic clashes from the classic Westwood Studios game, Command & Conquer: Red Alert to realm of first person shooters, with a twist. We've remained loyal to the style and feel of the 1996 classic, while integrating content from its expansions Counterstrike and The Aftermath with a bit of updated history to add to the mix. Built off the W3d engine Westwood Studios built for classics such as Earth & Beyond and Command & Conquer: Renegade finished up in 2001, we help bring the fight to you as you play out your role as any one of a number of infantry classes participating in team-based combat that often involves land, sea, and air combined-arms clashes that just don't happen in any other game. Oh, and did we mention it is FREE?

Leilei, do you read anything at all. Even before we've told you. We have permission from EA. they know what we are doing, hell two staff memebers have flown to EALA and attended community summits and discussed things.

It's 100% legal because we have permission, they endorse us and in a few days you'll see an interview/review with EA on the official C&C website. (A bit of insider news to everyone, expect it in a few days)

No, thats was Renegade 2, which aimed at linking Red alert and Red alert 2 to the Tiberian storyline.

This is a *port* of Red alert to Renegade. So turning it from a RTS game into a FPS with all the buildings, tanks, infantry, naval units and helicopters seen in Red alert. Not everything that was in red alert is in beta, we'll be adding more content in future releases.

But this is standalone, if you use the direct connect tool (APBIP) to connect to the official servers you can play online. For the IPs of the servers and ingame stats, rankings and awards/medals go here:

Hoorah, after a long time in the making, we've released!
You can all come and enjoy the mod :D
Make sure to check the website for more details and the official servers IP addresses so you can direct connect.

Remember, C&C Renegade is NOT required to play APB- Beta. You can be another old gamer who's never played a C&C game and jump right in. (yes, we have permission from Electronic Arts, stop asking :p )

woo for illegal rebundling of another game's copyrighted engine and files without their permissions and eula breaking and so.

This is going to be a shocking aftermath if any

i think it would be great if they helped you guys do SP RA too. I loved Renegade SP mode. I'm expecting I'll love this!

Use the APBIP program that game with the game and direct connect to the servers.

IP: Port: 9999 or 5555

Using the Mutiplayer Internet option from the main menu of the game takes you to XWIS if you happen to own C&C Renegade and would rather use that.
