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.

Want to test one of the most long-awaited mods for a C&C game? Want to relive one of the best strategy games of all time in full 3D, with immersive effects? Want to bring the past alive? Join us for The Red Alert's private beta.

Posted by on

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!

Why does it only let you pick one "Which of the following CNC series games have you played?"? Seems a bit... off.

I think I'd be a good beta tester, seeing I'm good at finding bugs in many mods and I RA1 was the first C&C I played so I know that game well, there's only one problem... I don't own a copy of RA3 :d

How do you tell the difference between a tester and someone who just wants to play mod early even a person who just wants to play mod early will still tell you about bugs encountered.

I actually have a blog to that effect on my user page, but in essence, the difference is that a tester will go into great detail, with a lot of repetitive actions with minor variables, to root out bugs.

That's right. Good testers can actively seek bugs out and find them, not just passively report them.

As for how I can tell, well, we've been doing this a while. I just look for good testers, there's no harm in them being excited about the mod--in fact, I'd be worried if anyone wasn't excited at this point.

I haven't known about this private beta until now. Red Alert is my favorite C&C game and one of my favorite all-time games I have played. I have been wanting to test it out.
