Electronic Arts gave more details about its upcoming Command & Conquer Commanders. In the blog post, EA began confirming that it was remastering 1995 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn and 1996's Command & Conquer: Red Alert. The expansion packages of this game, including Covert Ops, Counterstrike and Aftermath, will also be overclocked.
In her blog posting, EA also stressed that new remodelers will be "without microtransactions" that are heard as good news.
EA works with Petroglyph Games to develop the Command & Conquer Remastered collection, which includes Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. The studio in Las Vegas has a history with Command & Conquer, as some founders worked on the original Westwood Studios game before joining Petroglyph.
In his statement, EA said that he hopes his partnership with Petroglyph will take a long time and help people feel comfortable with how the remaster collectors will handle it.
"In addition to the enthusiasm and support of this recovery initiative in the past month, there has been a healthy skepticism that we can pull this out," EA said. "How can we move these titles while maintaining the authenticity of the original experience? In the end, there is no better way to achieve this as a partner with some gifted developers who have brought the lives of these original games."
What's more, EA also confirmed that the original Command & Conquer audio director and composer Frank Klepacki returned to Petroglyph to work on a new collection of remasters.
EA also employed the established company CG Lemon Sky Studios, which will work on the remake Command & Conquer package. Lemon Sky has worked on several games in the past, including Diablo III: The Everlasting Collection, Spider-Man PS4, StarCraft Remastered, Dead Rising 4, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Bloodborne, Gears of War 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, among many others.
There is still no word on when to start collecting the remaster of the Command & Conquer collection or any other key information about it, but the latest version of GameSpot should be returned back. EA has already said that it would be able to release holidays to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise, which could imply that they will be launched in 2020.
At E3 this year, EA announced Command & Conquer: Rivals, a free 1v1 game that is currently available via Alpha. Public announcements will come later.
