As Microsoft did it for the first two titles of Age of Empires, Electronic Arts would also like to make the players’ nostalgic string vibrate by graphically enhancing its RTS classics. And the first to achieve a remaster are Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn and Command & Conquer Red Alert.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a serious time! You, whose sense of strategy enabled the NOD to win in 1995, or whose tactical knowledge gave the GDI victory! You, who prevented communism from triumphing in 1996, or on the contrary stopped the spread of capitalist vermin! Your services will soon be required again.”
Indeed, Electronic Arts has announced that it will offer a 4K polish to the first title of the Command & Conquer saga as well as to the excellent Command & Conquer Red Alert. The two titles rolled out in 1995 and 1996, respectively, and were developed by the Westwood studio which is now shut down.
Electronic Arts To Provide 4K Remastering to Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert
But beware, Electronic Arts has decided to do things right. That’s why the remastering of the two Command & Conquer titles, which would be united under the Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection, is entrusted to the Petroglyph Games studio which was set up by the former Westwood members, such as Joe Bostic, Steve Tall, Mike Legg, and especially Frank Klepacki.
The Command & Conquer and other Red Alert extensions will also receive a small facelift and will be included in the final collection. Electronic Arts took the time to ensure that Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection would not contain microtransactions, especially since fans don’t see why they should be included.
Also, you must keep in mind that the development of the before-mentioned titles has not yet begun, so we don’t have a clue on when the 4K versions of Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn and Command & Conquer Red Alert would come out.
