    I'm surprised this hasn't been covered yet, but there's a bunch of people who are officially working on remasting the original two Command & Conquer games; Tiberium Dawn and Red Alert (including both expansion packs). I am hoping this isn't just going to be a lick of paint, but a coding overhaul too; I specifically remember the old AI not making use of their naval bases, which was a buzzkill.

    Whilst I am further overjoyed by this revelation, I would love for a new C&C game, maybe one featuring a mix of the two titles; Command & Conquer: Timelines? Mixed factions and a slightly more epic scale?
    • GDI-Allies (Europe/America)
    • Soviet Union (because the timeline is out of sync)
    • Shogun Warriors (SE Asia?)
    • Brotherhood of NOD
    • Middle Eastern Faction (there's a lot of wealth there now in places like Saudi Arabia and Dubai).
    That's just wishful thinking though, but back on the original topic, who's excited for this? Who grew up with these games? I know I did. From the first Red Alert all the way up to Tiberium Sun and Generals.

    I loved the C&C games (even that one FPS game). Red Alert 2 remains an RTS classic.

    Seeing Microsoft is publishing a new Age of Empires, I'd love to see a new C&C game, but with EA having the rights, no thanks...

    I'd also love to see Warcraft 4 but that probably will never happen and I'm pretty sure the Blizzard I loved is pretty much dead anyway.

    Tiberium Sun and Red Alert 2 were the core games for me (though I did love the original Red Alert; I pretty much grew up with that one).

    I didn't know they were doing another AoE, I haven't really played them anyway, but if it gets good reviews, I may have to invest a little...

    I absolutely loved those games. Can't wait for the remakes, and also for a future C&C game.

    :confused:
    I’m all for a new game, though what they’re doing with the old ones is remastering them, rather than remaking, and to be totally honest, from what I’ve seen of them so far, I’m not very impressed at all. :mad:

    Oh right. Will be nice for a bit of nostalgia then. I hope we get a new game. It's a shame EA own this franchise now.

    This looks like a great effort. I really loved these games back in the 90s. I hope this all leads to a top notch next gen C&C game too. This series needs to live on.

    I wonder what kinds of mods people will try and make for it. I really hope they make a new gen C&C game in the 2020s.

    I saw that. I am so incredibly excited. I still remember remember the game blowing my mind at age 8 when my next door neighbour lent me one of his discs. I've gotten a group of friends together to play online this week. They never really got into CnC back in the day, so this is their intro.

    The only thing that has got me uneasy is that EA has not lifted the review embargo yet...

    Yeah, I already tried out GDI missions 1 and 2 and, God, does it feel good. I turned off all of the modern features except unit quening. Oh man, that audio.

    It seems the only negative reviews are ones like Eurogamer, who ridiculously criticize the game for the retaining the original gameplay, saying it is old and dated.
