Command & Conquer Remasters Coming

Monday, 26th November 2018

Welcome to the first of a possibly ongoing series of posts for my blog, where I talk about video game news!

Anyway, you heard correctly. EA have announced that Command & Conquer Remasters are coming. It’s a dream come true! To be more specific we’re going to be returning to the first Tiberium War in the original Command & Conquer, and also a return to its sort of prequel, Red Alert!

Command & Conquer is owned by EA these days. I know, I know, they messed up big time with Command & Conquer 4. But they did an amazing job with C&C3 and it’s expansion Kane’s Wrath. I’ve never played Generals because Tiberium universe ftw, but apparently that’s pretty good too.

The news gets better. The game’s respective expansions: Covert Ops, The Aftermath and Counterstrike are all going to be included.

And even better. There are going to be no microtransactions in the games. These are going to be proper, full PC games.

There’s more! Frank Klepacki, who did the fantastic music for the original C&C and Red Alert is returning.

Apparently EA are getting a lot of the original dev team and creators back for this.

At the moment not much else has been announced as they’re still at the planning stage. But based on all this, I’m personally hopeful that we’re gonna see two pretty darn excellent remasters!

Now, the thing with remasters is that everybody tends to agree they want “the same, but different”. Unfortunately, what they want the same and what they want different is different for everyone. Anyway, here’s mine xD. I should mention, I never play C&C online, so this is coming from the perspective of someone who just enjoys the campaigns and the storylines.

This is just a few ideas and my personal wishlist. I can’t wait for more news on these remasters!

Anyway, if you have something to say, feel free to leave a comment below!
