We Malaysians always say, “Got kangtao, must share lah!“. That roughly means “You must share whatever special deals you know!” to non-Malaysians.
Many thanks to Kelvin Tan for alerting us to this kangtao! If you have any other kangtao, let us know too! 😀
Free?! What’s The Catch?
They are really yours to download and play, forever and ever, and you need not pay Origin a single cent.
Other than that – there is really no catch. It’s a great deal.
It’s The FULL Version
Of course, these are really old games. Red Alert 2 was released on October 23, 2000 while Yuri’s Revenge came out on October 10, 2001. Still, these are great games to own and replay.
Even if you have the original CDs lying around, they don’t last forever. Why not add them to your Origin account so you can download and play them whenever you feel a little nostalgic? 😀
How Long Will You Own The Game?
Once you add them to your Origin account, they belong to you forever and ever. You can download whenever you want and play. Of course, you will need to use the Origin app to download and launch them.
Why Is Origin Doing This?
Simple – to get you to register with them, and try out their Origin app. They can then send you notifications on new games or promotions, and who knows – you might buy an extra game or two from them? 😀
