History[edit | edit source]

The Soviet Invasion[edit | edit source]

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]

The release of Yuri's Revenge was originally meant to be cancelled in September 2001 due to the fact that its cover featured a city being destroyed in the background, leading the developers to the conclusion that it resembles the real-life 9/11 event. The game was finally released, with some versions sporting the original cover art and others that had it altered. Furthermore, re-releases of the vanilla Red Alert 2 released after 2001 also had altered covers.

Even worse, 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.
