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…

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…

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: The Browser Game: The Trailer

Right, this will get tongues a-wagging. C&C Tiberium Alliances is the next reboot of the Nod vs GDI universe, and as we discovered earlier it's a browser-based "epic strategy MMO" using the dark magicks of HTML5. Here's what it's going to look like. In short, like C&C classic in some ways and yet... not. Really not.

Browse’n’Bash: C&C Tiberium Alliances

Update: we now also know that this will indeed be free to play, and that the beta kicks off tomorrow.Oho, looks as though we're actually getting two new Command & Conquer games. We know about the Frostbyte-powered, militaristic Generals 2, but the Tiberium universe yet lives too. Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances is a browser-based, HTML 5-powered "epic strategy MMO" which "allows players to experience…

Chums In Conquer: C&C Alliances Rumoured

My brain: C&C news is big news, we should report it! My soul: But it's just a rumour of the name of the rumoured new C&C game that a division of Bioware is rumoured to be making. Rumour, rumour, rumour, and even if it's true it doesn't reveal anything about the game. My brain: Maybe it does - 'Command & Conquer Alliances' could mean a…

Red Redemption: C&C RA1 in RA3

[This was written at 11.30am, but our scheduler messed up. Hooray! - Retroactive Ed] I should be at the Eurogamer Expo right now, but instead I’ve been stuck on a train for the last few hours, diverted through the darkest and most obscure reaches of the South-East, because this is crappy old Britain and its greedily-privatised public transport infrastructure is totally capable of efficiently dealing…

Command Command & Conquer

Welcome back, commander. We know EA's deathless strategy titan C&C is due for yet another reboot, but we don't really know anything about what form it will take. Turns out EA - or at least their new strategy studio Victory Games - haven't entirely worked it out yet either. Hence, they've put out an open call for suggestions and requests from players. It's been a…

New C&C Official, Details Later This Year

Monday this week we had a surprise. A new Command & Conquer game! This was surprising on two counts. Firstly, EA had rather publicly given up on the series last year. Secondly, there was no build up, no tiresome PR campaign. Just POW! News! So of course it was an accident. The site so keenly spotted by VE3D was hastily pulled, the story buried. But…

Reddest Alert: C&C To Return

This happened all of sudden, and quietly. EA stealth-rebooted its Command & Conquer website, announcing in quick sucession a new community manager, a whole new studio and a brand new, mystery C&C game.We thought it was all over. (C'mon, we didn't think it was all over for even a second). It isn't now. Sounds like they're really going for it this time. Commandingly, they sound…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Ok, Visceral Aren’t Making The C&C Game

Turns out that Nick Earl was talking about EA as a whole, not Visceral, as Game Informer managed to uncover: "EA confirmed with us that a new Command & Conquer title is indeed early in development, but that it was being handled by an Los Angeles-based team that reports to Earl in Redwood Shores, CA."So that's that then. Cheers to all who pointed that out.

Visceral Confirm C&C Project

Dead Space creators Visceral have been having a pleasant chat with Gamasutra, and along the way they confirmed that they're working on a new Command & Conquer action game. It won't be the first, of course, and a previous C&C-based action title was canned by EA in 2008, but it will apparently be, in the words of label general manager Nick Earl, "pretty far out."…

Remembrance Day – C&C3: The Forgotten

With C&C4 leaving some big huge gaps in Tiberium-town's long-running lore, it seems only right that the series' fans would fill in the gaps. Better to do it with new game-stuff than with long, rambling fanfic, too. C&C3 mod the Forgotten is a three years in the making tale of a rag-tag band of space crystal-mutated lost souls, and the part they played in the…

Three C&Cs For Free

Free C and C Four Three. C Free and Three Four C. She sells seashells on the seashore. Aaargh. Anyway! The first three Command & Conquer games: no-pennies. A welcome promotional wotsit by EA on the eve-ish of C&C4: Tiberian Twilight, the only price you have to pay to get your hands on C&C, Red Alert and Tiberian Sun (plus the Firestorm expansion) is to…

Command & Conquer Concludes

This is odd. The revelation that there is to be a Command & Conquer 4 is scarcely any surprise, as EA's rejuvenated franchise seems to be on a bit of a roll these days (bar the cancellation of FPS Tiberium). That they're saying it will finish the Tiberium saga is the shocker - surely its silly sci-fi storyline was designed to blather away forever? A…

Tiberium Goes Bye-Bye

I was thinking only the other day that we hadn't heard anything about that somewhat dreary-looking Command & Conquer FPS for a while, and then I spot news over at Blue's that EA have unexpectedly put it out of its misery."It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end to all work on 'Tiberium,' effective immediately", sez Ea's Mike Verdu. "The game had…

The Staring Eyes of Natasha Henstridge

Which is my way of distracting you from the fact we're linking to a lot of stuff we've written elsewhere today. This time it's Alec's review of Kane's Wrath which PC Gamer have put on their electro-net-commuicato-think masters C&VG. In it he says things like... oh, go and read it. Now... I've reviewed it. Jim's done it for someone else. Walker is clearly never going…
