Tiberian Sun freeware download

Tiberian Sun is a strategy game set in the near future on an earth rapidly being transformed by a strange crystal life-form called Tiberium. The game continues the story line from the original Command & Conquer with Kane resurfacing after being presumed dead to try and wipe out the GDI once and for all. Play as one of two major world factions: GDI or NOD and for control of the planet.

Tiberian Sun has been released as freeware and has a great single player as well as an enjoyable mutliplayer with several different possible configurations. You can download the game from one of the following links:

    Same problem with Win8.1 on a Dell PC. I never can see the menus. I’ll try all that suggested and i’ll tell what happens.

    Thanks for now.

    I installed the original CD-rom version of “TS” yesterday on a PC with Vista Home Premium (w/ a RadeoHD 6870), with all the pre-set installation settings (like “C:\Westwood” instead of in “Program Files”) and no patches yet. It worked fine (so far). Once again, I see keeping Vista was a good idea :)
