Command and Conquer Remastered came out last June 5 and enjoyed a surge of approval from long-time fans. The CnC community waited for the remaster, now flooding it with positive reviews.
Electronic Arts is doing the right thing with Command and Conquer Remastered at the moment. The game now has more than 6000 reviews on its Steam page, with an overwhelmingly positive review.
The game is a remaster of the original CnC and Red Alert 1 from 1995. The game was a massive undertaking, with cooperation from devs and the community alike.
CnC Remastered came from working relationship between devs and community
CnC Remastered is hitting all the checkmarks when it comes to the right things to do for the fans. For starters, the game started as an out of the blue announcement for the community on Reddit.
EA producer Jim Vessella announced they were going to remaster the original Tiberian Dawn, together with the first Red Alert. From here, the team did everything right by the fans.
The team partnered with Petroglyph Games for the remaster. Petroglyph has Frank Klepacki, their current audio director and the original creator of CnC’s soundtracks.
At every step, the EA team in charge of the remaster updated with fans. They showed off everything as it built, from the first art previews to the first gameplay teaser.
Until recently, the marketing for the game was hitting its stride. The old fans also got fresh participation from Command and Conquer legend Joseph Kucan, the original villain of the game.
Even before the release, the dev team sprinkled hints and secrets all over for the game. Now the game is out, everything is now up to scruff.
New Command and Conquer great mix of nostalgia and gameplay
Command and Conquer Remastered is getting the right mix of nostalgia and functionality. Its goal is not to target new players, but rather old players craving for the game since the failed Tiberian Twilight.
The game is beautiful, rendered up to 4K for some HD gaming. Players can also toggle old and new graphics as they want. The campaigns are still as brutal as they were in the early 90s, which means hardcore players can enjoy it.
With the upcoming success of the remasters also comes the gates opening for later games. Fans are clamoring for more, with Red Alert 2, Yuri’s Revenge, and Tiberian Sun likely on the horizon.
Command and Conquer Remastered is available on Steam for $19.99 and has very low system requirements that allow it to adjust to any gaming rig.
