Red Alert Universe

"What is so important you interrupt a private briefing, Gradenko?"

Originally meant to be a prequel to Tiberian Dawn, "Red Alert" eventually became its own spin-off universe. Generally, Red Alert games are more "light-hearted" than the Tiberium series; the latter tends to adopt a serious tone to reflect the theme of the series (which, of course, revolves around the impending doom of the human race). Unlike the games of the other two universes, navies are an important part of Red Alert games.

Red Alert is an alternate universe where, due to Einstein's time-traveling, Josef Stalin and the Soviet Union became the aggressor of World War II instead of the now-non-existent Hitler and the Third Reich. Time travel was later used on several other occasions, giving rise to new and exciting wars.

  • 1996 - Red Alert
  • 1997 - Counterstrike (expansion pack to Red Alert)
  • 1997 - Aftermath (expansion pack to Red Alert)
  • 1998 - Retaliation (PlayStation port of the above expansions)
  • 2000 - Red Alert 2
  • 2001 - Yuri's Revenge (expansion pack to Red Alert 2)
