What EA says about the C&C Remastered Collection:
"To celebrate Command & Conquer's 25th anniversary, Electronic Arts today announced the release of the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, a collection of world-famous real-time strategy games that have shaped a generation. The collection will be available worldwide via Origin from June 5 and Steam are available and are included in the Origin Access Premier subscription, which includes: Command & Conquer: The Tiberium Conflict, Command & Conquer: Red Alert and the three related extensions (The State of Emergency, Counterattack and Retaliatory Strike). The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection was released as Joint project launched by EA and some of the former Westwood Studios team members who now work at Petroglyph.
The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection is being developed in collaboration with the C&C community, which learned about the existence of the project back in October 2018 to provide community feedback before development started. An active community council has been involved since the early stages of pre-production and can contact the development team at any time. The games are revived with new graphics and fresh textures and even support 4K resolution. In addition, the soundtrack was re-mixed by the famous original composer Frank Klepacki with over seven hours of playing time. The community was instrumental in the required improvements, such as the revised user interface, the modernized controls and a map editor, with which fans can present their works to the world. The multiplayer mode has been completely redeveloped to guarantee a modern online experience. Custom games, 1v1 battles, Elo-based player search, leaderboards, replays, and more are all available.
"Our team has worked closely with the C&C community from day one, and we hope that the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection will meet and exceed our fans' expectations thanks to this open exchange," said Jim Vessella, lead producer at EA. "The classic gameplay that ushered in a new era of real-time strategy genre remains and is being expanded to include useful features desired by the community, such as a battle mode for The Tiberium Conflict, practical improvements and full Steam integration with UGC support C&C fan (I was 12 in 1995) was a dream come true. I was actually able to work with the former Westwood Studios team members who are now Petroglyph employees. "
