Petroglyph and EA have released the first peek at C&C Remastered since it was announced in 2018. It’s not a long look at Command & Conquer Remastered gameplay, but at least it’s something, right?
The video offers viewers a pretty sweet intro showing the game’s old pixelated graphics and gradually segueing into the updated, sharper, and clearer images of the remastered version. Don’t go expecting too much, however, as the game still sports its 2D graphics, but it’s still a huge step up from the original.
However, there are those who may prefer the older 320×200 graphics. Petroglyph has them covered as well. An option is being provided to allow players to toggle “classic” visuals with a single button press. This allows players to play the game and to “stay as authentic as possible to the original games” according to developers.
“This means at any time when playing a Campaign mission, you can tap a single key to smoothly toggle between the original assets at 320 x 200, to the Remastered assets up to 3840 x 2160. Playing with this toggle over the past several months has been a true joy, and we believe will be one of your favorite features in the Remaster. Along with the real-time toggling, you’ll have the ability to zoom the camera to take in all the high definition detail, with an effective zoom distance between the DOS and C&C Gold camera heights.”
The remastered version will bring those who’d rather play with a more modern look will be able to do so thanks to 4K with camera zooms that allow players to get close to the action.
Sadly, no one knows when the game will be coming out but we’ll be keeping an eye on things and will keep you posted.
