EA will release Command & Conquer: Remastered source code at launch

When Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection launches next month, it'll arrive with a lovely little gift for the modding community. This week, EA announced that some of the source code for both Command & Conquer and Red Alert will be freely accessible at launch, giving modders the groundwork to go wild creating whatever they'd like - up to and including giant tanks that punt nukes…

Command & Conquer Remastered is a big hit of nostalgia – but will it be a great RTS?

Ahead of its launch on June 5th, I've been able to see the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection in action, and it certainly looks the part. The quarter-century-old RTS, as well as comrade Red Alert and their squad of three expansion packs, have been sent over the top of their pixellated trench, and into the high-res carnage of no-man's-land. Malaysian art house Lemon Sky Studios…

Command & Conquer Remastered Collection is coming June 5th

The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection will deliver its overhauled versions of the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert (plus expansions) on June 5th, Electronic Arts announced today. Westwood's cheery 'n' cheesy real-time strategy games from the 90s come with fancying-up including redrawn high-resolution artwork, support for mahoosive monitors, a revamped interface, remastered sound, and a new multiplayer backend. And yes, absolutely, they've touched…

Command & Conquer’s infamous FMV cutscenes have been wrangled into high definition

Slowly, but surely, we've been drip-fed more deets on Command & Conquer Remastered - EA's upcoming HD re-release of Tiberian Sun and Red Alert. Last year we got a brief look at C&C Remastered's scaled up assets. They're very nice, too, sharpening decades-old art to bring it up to a modern standard without going overboard on fancy effects. But what about Command & Conquer's (in)famous…

Here’s a first, brief look at Command & Conquer Remastered

Staring at a screen for 20+ years tends to make things blurry. My solution is to completely ignore the ravages of time on my eyes and to hope that things will work out anyway. And they did! EA have been working on a Command & Conquer remaster that sharpens the original sprites and deblurs the destruction, so I can more easily make out the Nod's…

EA get the band back together for Command & Conquer and Red Alert remasters

EA have now officially announced their Command & Conquer remasters, and they look to be in good hands. Several of the strategy classics's original developers are returning, including talent from ex-Westwood folks Petroglyph and original composer Frank Klepacki. Together, they're polishing up the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, along with its alt-history cousin C&C: Red Alert, plus all expansions for both games. Preempting the…

EA quietly announce a Command & Conquer anniversary remaster

Rather than open with a press release or trailer, EA have chosen to quietly announce an official Command & Conquer remaster on Reddit. In a post from EA producer Jim Vessella, he says the studio have plans for the series's fast-approaching 25th anniversary. While it sounds like it's just one game being updated for now, Vessella's statement suggests that more may be planned.He has also…

Spawn Point: how to get into real-time strategy

Hello. This is Spawn Point, a new not-quite-regular feature in which we take a genre, series or other facet of gaming culture, and try to convince you to give it a shot. It might be those hero shooters you’ve always wanted to get into, or that terrifying space game played by thousands of jerks. We’ll briefly explain the thing, followed by some ways for you…

Community Conquers: C&C Online Salvages Multiplayer

The Command and Conquer franchise is almost twenty years old and it may already be on its last legs. The free-to-play Generals 2 had been rebranded as simply 'Command & Conquer' when EA decided to pull the plug and it's all been quiet on the (formerly) Westwood front since then. Indeed, the cries of havoc and unleashing of time travelling, Tesla-faced dogs of war were…

Repair Facility: Three Hours With Renegade-X

Let's take a moment to appreciate the mere existence of Renegade-X. It's a fan-made re-make and successor to Command & Conquer: Renegade, the short-lived first-person spin-off from Westwood's real-time strategy series. It was released first as an Unreal Tournament 3 mod in 2009, and on Wednesday it was re-born as a free, standalone, open beta, made with the blessing of Electronic Arts. I've spent a…

C&C Renegade X Is Still Being Released On Its Release Date

With official C&C games staggering dazedly around development limbo at the moment, our need for a tasty bit of NOD must instead be sated by the fan community. Renegade-X is a modders' ambitious and apparently impressive attempt to redo EA's ill-fated FPS-RTS spin-off Renegade, and it's been in the works for quite a while now. Last November brought news that a version 1 release would…

EA Looking To Resume Command & Conquer At New Studio

The plot, it thickens - like an ultra-syrupy plot milkshake or a rail-thin wisp of a plot that's been secretly lifting plot weights for plot months. A few weeks ago, EA announced that it had canceled EA Victory's free-to-play Command & Conquer pseudo-reboot and closed down the studio altogether. This left the series' future very much in doubt, especially given that Victory had been established…

Defeat: EA Cancels Command & Conquer, Closes Victory

Well now, here's a surprise. I knew some players weren't altogether on board with EA's latest Command & Conquer pseudo-reboot, but I had heard decent-ish things by and large. Apparently, however, the nay-screamers outnumbered the yea-sayers, because EA's elected to reduce the whole project to a shower of raining, Frostbite-3-friendly rubble. But that's just the beginning, er, of the end. In addition, EA is completely…

Command & Conquer To Revisit Red Alert, Tiberium

EA's free-to-play reimagining of Command & Conquer just keeps on growing. Next year, it'll slowly but surely roll out a full single-player campaign set in the Generals universe, replete with triumphant returns (or cackling callbacks) from the Global Liberation Army and revamped Chinese and US factions. But how exactly will these missions release? And what lies beyond, after what essentially constitutes Command & Conquer Generals…

Command & Conquer Dev Diary Explains Things

Electronic Arts and Victory Games send word of one of those explanatory videos, where serious people talk about how games are made. Specifically how the forthcoming Command & Conquer gets made. It all seems pretty exciting, and no one appears glum says "well, we go into this big glass building every day, and eventually a game happens." In fact, this video makes the work of…

Command & Conquer Has Generals From All Walks Of Life

The game formerly known as Generals 2, probably also known within internal EA circles as 'please rescue the franchise after we repeatedly tried to murder it with really silly decisions' but officially known as simply Command & Conquer has fully broken cover at last. In what way? Well, this week is E3. I'll give you three guesses as to how an upcoming videogame might try…

Ace Of Base: EA Talks Command & Conquer’s Roots

Command & Conquer's march into free-to-play territory has been fraught with confusion. Will it have single-player? Won't it? Is it even technically Command & Conquer Generals 2 anymore? I guess not, seeing as EA's taken to shaving off that grizzled, battle-tested moniker in favor of the simple, sprightly Command & Conquer. And that, it would seem, wasn't some careless "why not?" decision made on a…
