After a small teaser yesterday, EA has revealed the full details of when Command & Conquer Remastered will be available. Coming to both Steam and Origin, this compilation package of the first two C&C games and their expansions will be available digitally for $19.99 on June 5, 2020. This includes Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, its expansion Covert Ops, and Red Alert along with its two expansions Counterstrike and The Aftermath.
If digital isn’t your thing, some physical editions from Limited Run Games will let you get a box to put on your shelf. It doesn’t include the games on a disc, but you will be able to relive some of those old memories of big-box PC releases. The “Special Edition” will run you $59.99 and include a two-piece box along with a digital download code, a 16 GB Tiberium crystal flash drive, the entire remastered soundtrack (which has 119 tracks and over seven hours of music), a reversible 18 x 24 poster, enamel pins of the four different factions along with a sticker sheet, and prints for each of the tech trees.
The beefier $149.99 “25th Anniversary Edition” will come with all of the same stuff from the special edition, but be housed in a foil, embossed box, include the soundtrack on six discs and signed by composer Frank Klepacki, a 100+ page art book, patches for each faction, a reversible beanie, a small metal replica of the mammoth tank, and include PVC replicas of the sound tesla coil and obelisk. It’s a lot of cool stuff that is sure to make C&C veterans happy.
If you aren’t completely sure if you want to shell out for this compilation, Command & Conquer Remastered will be available on Origin Access Premier. Subscribers to EA’s service will have full access to the game and all of its content, though will have to remain subscribed to continue playing. It’s not a bad way to see if these classic games are for you.
The news of a Steam release is probably the best part, though. $20 for everything isn’t bad in the slightest, but having the support of Valve’s platform means that fans will be able to play this for years to come. Origin has definitely gotten better over the years -and even boasts a solid refund policy-, but I’ll gladly stick with Steam for digital games.
