To mark the 12th anniversary of the franchise, Electronic Arts, the current publisher and owner of the series, released the game for free in 2007.

Making it work
This game checks the label of the CD drive so you if you have mounted your CD image:
mount d: /mnt/cdrom -label GDI mount d: /mnt/cdrom -label NOD
In Windows you may need to include '-t cdrom':
mount d: d:\ -t cdrom -label GDI
If you are working with ISO images:
imgmount d: /home/user/NOD.iso -t iso
Once you have mounted the CDROM, switch to the drive and run setup.exe
If you encounter an error regarding setup.mix, ensure you have mounted the disk with '-t cdrom'.
This game supports both modem and IPX play
