Electronic Arts and Westwood Studios’ classic real-time strategy series, Command & Conquer, returns this summer with the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection. EA will release its collection of remastered RTS games for Windows PC on June 5.

The Command & Conquer Remastered Collection includes two games, 1995’s Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn and 1996’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert, as well as three expansion packs: Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and The Aftermath. Developer Petroglyph (Grey Goo, Conan Unconquered) is developing the remasters with EA.

Command & Conquer Remastered was originally announced in 2018. The modern-day update promises resolutions up to 4K, rebuilt multiplayer, an enhanced UI, and a remastered soundtrack by composer Frank Klepacki. Petroglyph even remastered the games’ infamous full-motion video segments.

EA will release Command & Conquer Remastered digitally through Steam and Origin. The publisher is also working with boutique publisher Limited Run Games to release a pair of physical releases. Here are the official details from EA:
