How to get a key for the Command & Conquer 4 Beta

There have only been a few games that I’ve been more excited about that Command & Conquer 4: Half-Life 2, Day of Defeat: Source, and Command & Conquer Red Alert 2. That’s it. C&C 4 should launch on March 16, 2010, but follow this quick guide ASAP and you’ll be able to see a bit of the game early through the beta program. But you better hurry. There is limit to the amount of keys they are giving out.

It seems like EA has teamed up with Gamespot for this program. Fine with me.

  1. Head over to the Gamespot C&C4 page and either sign in or make a new account
  2. There you’ll receive your key code and a link to C&C’s site
  3. Follow the rabbit through the link and put in your key code.
  4. It might make you sign up for a EA account. Do it. But you might have to go back to the Gamespot page and start again.
  5. Agree to the terms and conditions to get the download link
  6. Download the 1.4GB game and install.
  7. Easy peasy
