For those who haven’t yet tried the alternate-history strategy title Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, their chance has arrived today – EA just released a PC demo for the game. The single-player demo will include one campaign mission from both the Soviet and the Allied campaigns, in addition to the game's cinematic opening and three playable tutorials.

The demo will give fans of the series a taste of what it's like to use an array of fictitious and over-the-top weaponry, before the game’s first major patch releases later this year, which will include C&C Red Alert 3’s map-making and mod tool “WorldBuilder” plus a number of bug fixes and multiplayer enhancements. The 1.8GB demo is available now at FileFront.
