The Red Alert, developed by the mod team of C&C Labs (makes of The Forgotten and C&C All Stars, undertakes one of the most ambitious tasks in C&C modding: to recreate and improve upon an original game. The mod, in development for Red Alert 3, is based off the original Red Alert's art and game play. Not aiming to model realism, it instead endeavors to bring the addictive heart-pounding game play of the classic to a world-class 3D engine, to bring back all of the classic units, including those from Aftermath, and to recreate the very "feel" of its art style. With The Red Alert, epic tank battles, MiG attack runs, and Cruiser strikes will be more than just fond memories — they will all be weapons in your arsenal once again! It was released on September 21, 2011 and was ranked the number one mod on Moddb.

At long last, we at The Red Alert (a mod that remakes Red Alert 1) are almost ready to begin sharing our private beta with a select group of testers from the community. It's been a long process and we're delighted to begin sharing our work. Beta testing is a critical part of making our mod the best it can be, and we seek only the most dedicated and capable testers. If all you want is to play the mod early, testing is not for you. If however, you're willing to carefully consider the merits and weaknesses of a still-incomplete mod, meticuously look for flaws, and make insightful balance suggestions (realizing that we can't make major changes at this point, such as adding lots of new units), we'd like to have you aboard!
