History[edit | edit source]

Third World War (Red Alert 2)[edit | edit source]

RA2Sovietlogo.png The following is based on the Soviet campaign for Red Alert 2 and might contradict canon.

The Soviet Commander was sent by Yuri to New York City. The Soviet troopers acted fast and captured the battle lab that was built between the Twin Towers in order to construct the first Psychic Beacon in its place.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, Yuri's Revenge was due to release in September, but was delayed after the game went gold.[1] It is assumed that since after the real-world 9/11 attacks, the cover art that featured annihilated civilian buildings like in the original Red Alert 2 seemed inappropriate. The packages for both Red Alert 2[2] and Yuri's Revenge were changed, but some markets ultimately received prints with the original cover.
  • The original release rewarded the player for destroying the Twin Towers with cash. In later patches, the caches are rewarded for garrisoning the towers, and they cannot be destroyed.[citation needed]
