One of the little known but saddening side-effects of Victory Games' closure in 2013 was that a lot of Westwood-era archives were scheduled for disposal, among which were the original tapes holding cutscene footage. We do not know for sure if EA ever digitally archived them beforehand. However, very few people in the community were in on the fact that an unknown person managed to get hold of three of these tapes from Yuri's Revenge before they reached a landfill in the Los Angeles area - one holding selects from days 1-5, one holding selects from day 6, and one holding off-line footage.
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in history, and thanks to C&C community member Anderwin for posting this first on Project Perfect Mod, we witness the footage from days 1-5 of the filming of Yuri's Revenge, which was long believed to have been lost. Enjoy!
