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?
After clearing roadblocks and pushing through a minefield, some Mammoth Tanks and infantry charge up a frozen river to assault the Allies' War Factory. Medium Tanks and infantry fight back under the cover of a Mobile Gap Generator, which buys enough time for the Allies to deploy a Phase Tank and score a lot of free hits.
When a Soviet player enters the Gap Generator field, the screen goes dark except for a small area around the player, and only rough silhouettes are visible. Any targets hit by gunfire will flicker; in this video, a teammate's automatic rifle fire helped illuminate the Mobile Gap Generator which allowed the Mammoth Tank to properly take aim and destroy it.
