First teaser released for COMMAND & CONQUER REMASTERED

Electronic Arts and Petroglyph have released the first trailer for Command & Conquer Remastered, their remake of the first game in the Command & Conquer series.

The teaser confirms that this is going to be a deal like StarCraft Remastered, remaking the original game with somewhat higher-fidelity graphics and higher-quality audio but not touching the controls or user interface.

The current plans are to remake and release Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert, with their respective expansions included in the remastered releases. If those are successful, presumably the team will consider moving onto Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun (1999) and the 3D era of the franchise, which began with Command & Conquer: Generals (2002).

No release date has been set for the project, but it should be noted that September 2020 would mark the franchise's 25th anniversary and would be a logical time to release the game.

I used to love playing the original game. This update still looks very much like a work-in-progress, but I'm going to eagerly follow its development. Mostly I think I'm excited about the remastering work being done on the amazing soundtracks!

I'm interested in knowing if they are able upgrade the FMV cutscenes too, those were a key ingredient in the series' charm.
