Yes. It is a full version of the game with a valid serial. Even if you already have ra2 via origin you can claim another copy.

I already got one serial. It's working!

 

Cmon guys. That's the biggest chance to get XWIS active again! Spread it out and go register and tell every one to get it.

Funny how CNCnet is advertising this on the main RA2 Facebook page (which they shouldn't even have access to) and telling people to go play on CNCnet. I guess they don't care about legalities. They aren't even allowed to own the yurisrevenge.com domain since it's trademarked name. Oh well, at least their intentions are well meant I guess.

He first needs to install Origin, then click on the download link.

 

Step 1: Download Origin and install it: http://www.dm.origin.com/download

Step 2: Create an EA Games account to log in to Origin

Step 3: Access this link to add RA2 / Yuri to your Origin account:

Step 4: Download the game and install it with the serial number provided

Step 5: Go to http://xwis.net/game-account/and add your serial number, create a nickname and write down the password from that page

Step 6: Start the game go to Internet --> Custom Match --> log in with the nickname you created and the generated password

There was an issue that kept us from completing your request. No need to panic, just give it another try later.

I just get the above error.

I'm thinking it might be a tech issue, there were a lot of comments about it being unable to download at some point today

 

Hopefully they'll bring it back online

Are the people on FB who said the offer was until Dec associated with Origin? If so I doubt they would give a date and then not live up to it. Could be temporary like neogrant said.

https://help.ea.com/en/article/origin-services-impacted/ Too many people downloading ra2 from origin that's why the site is Down, EA working quickly to resolve the issue and restore normal support status
