Command & Conquer Remasters Will Let You Rapidly Swap Resolutions At The Push of a Button

Command & Conquer Remasters Will Let You Rapidly Swap Resolutions At The Push of a Button

Go retro or modern with a single keystroke.

Petroglyph has been quietly working away at remasters of the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert for a while, and today, it revealed the full look of the game. It included a first glimpse at gameplay, as well as the resolution options: both a classic, retro look and a modern 4K revision.

Both Petroglyph Games, which has several former Westwood developers, and Lemon Sky Studios have been developing the remastered look the two C&C classics. The two confirmed that Command & Conquer would retain its 2D look, rather than an updated 3D version like more recent Command & Conquers. You can see the Tiberian Dawn remaster in action below:

The really cool feature, though, is the ability to toggle between original assets at 320x200 and the remastered assets at 4K using a single key press. The remasters will also have zoom, so you can adjust the view distance on the fly, or get really into the nitty-gritty detail of the remaster's machines of war.

While the team stresses some of these assets, like the Tiberium Silo, are still a work-in-progress, you can check out the website as well to slide back and forth between the two versions to see the difference yourself. As a near-lifelong fan of Command & Conquer, I'm pretty excited to see this all in action.

We don't have much info about these remasters outside the occasional art asset or Reddit post from the developers, but considering the only C&C in recent memory was a really disappointing mobile version, any news is good news. I'm ready to blare Hell March and start rolling out my Tesla Tanks.
