When Origin offered the FREE download of Command & Conquer : Red Alert 2 + Command & Conquer : Yuri’s Revenge, the Internet literally jumped on that deal. In fact, so many people downloaded them that Origin temporarily took them offline to reduce the insane load on their servers!
To slake your thirst in the meantime, they are offering Theme Hospital absolutely FREE of charge. Yes, you read it right – Theme Hospital is now FREE!
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?
It is yours to download and play, forever and ever, and you need not pay Origin a single cent.
The only catch is that you must install and use Origin for PC to download and play them. Needless to say, you will also need to register yourself with Origin.com.
Other than that – there is really no catch. It’s a great deal.
It’s The FULL Version
Seriously, this isn’t the demo or trial version. This is the real deal – the FULL version of Theme Hospital.
Of course, this is a really old game. Theme Hospital was released in 1997. It’s so old, it actually runs on MS-DOS!
That makes it older than some of you reading this… 😀
How Long Will You Own The Game?
Once you add Theme Hospital to your Origin account, it belongs to you forever and ever. You can download it whenever you want and play. Of course, you will need to use the Origin app to download and launch it.
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? 😀
Will Origin Make The Two C&C Games Available Again?
It sounds like they will make both Command & Conquer : Red Alert 2 + Command & Conquer : Yuri’s Revenge available for free very soon again. This is what they said :
The demand is so high that we need some time to cool down our servers. Command & Conquer Red Alert™ 2 and Yuri’s Revenge™ will return to on the house very shortly.
