Thanks largely to the efforts of our loyal fans whom continue to sustain and grow the Command & Conquer community, Command & Conquer has become a legendary franchise and it’s time to celebrate its birth once again.
In order to give back to the fans for over 12 years of devotion we are putting together a 12th Anniversary celebration during the month of September. However, as any Command & Conquer fan knows, the true party starts today, August 31st, which marks 12 years since Command & Conquer Gold launched way back in 1995.
To kick the celebration off, today we have a special surprise which we are certain new and old Command & Conquer fans will enjoy. We are providing the original Command & Conquer Gold as a free download, compatible for Windows XP! This is the same version included with the collectors pack Command & Conquer: The First Decade, and is now available for you to download for free!
As the original files are no longer hosted by EA, we have created a mirror on Digiex for your convenience, we have also included the patch to enable you to play the game in resolutions up to 1280x768.
C&C Gold - Torrent (Includes both CD’s and the patch)
C&C Gold - GDI CD
C&C Gold - NOD CD
Higher Resolution Patches - The latest version can be downloaded from: http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/cnc95upd/cc95p106/
For information on how to burn the image file to disc please have a look at the following Digiex guide: How to burn BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI images to disc.
