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?
Hello again! We've been quite busy with the Red Alert TC for Command & Conquer: Renegade. I've recently taken on the task of coding the mod, creating certain structures (Helipad, Service Depot, and a few others.), and creating objects found in Red Alert, such as the Barrel you'll find below. My word

Hello again! We've been quite busy with the Red Alert TC for Command & Conquer: Renegade. I've recently taken on the task of coding the mod, creating certain structures (Helipad, Service Depot, and a few others.), and creating objects found in Red Alert, such as the Barrel you'll find below.
My word of advice - don't stand anywhere in proximity to a Barrel. If shot, it *will* explode violently in a 45 meter radius, likely killing you or damaging you severely.
I also did the Barbed Wire that the Soviets employed in World War II (WWII in the C&C universe, because Einstien went back in time and killed Hitler, making the Soviets become the power that threatens Europe instead of Nazi Germany.)
Along with those updates from my personal work, you can check out where we've gotten with vehicles. Yes, for those of you who are not aware, Renegade's engine incorporates fully usable and purchasable vehicles that are totally integrated into the gameplay of the game. From Light Tanks to the enormous Mammoth Tank (With twin 120mm barrels and twin rocket launchers for anti-infantry!), the vehicles are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay mechanics. They are very enjoyable to use and drive, and it's a load of fun driving over infantry units. Click below to check out more screenshots of vehicles in action. Keep in mind that L3f7H4nd3d, the man who took those shots, had his detail on medium-low when taking the screenshots. The actual models look much better than that in-game.
