A post on the official Electronic Arts website today offered fans a chance to view the very first Command & Conquer Remastered gameplay teaser. Since the announcement of the remaster’s development, players have questioned whether or not the game would stay true to the original’s 2D style and gameplay feel. Now that question has an answer, which interested readers can check out below.
Written by producer Jim Vessela, the post on EA’s website reads in part: “It’s been wonderful to see the passionate, artistic care taken by Lemon Sky and the team with this creative approach. Lemon Sky has re-concepted, re-modeled, and re-animated every gameplay asset from scratch – examples of which you’ve seen with the Construction Yard and Tesla Tank. Once it reaches the final stage as seen in those previews, we render and export the assets in 2D so they lineup frame for frame with the original visuals. In some cases like the Grenadier, this can mean over 600 frames for a single unit. This creative process has allowed us to modernize the game assets as you originally imagined them, and stay true to the gameplay you’ve known and loved for 25 years.”
Released in 1995, the original Command & Conquer was one of the first games in the budding real-time strategy genre. The game’s plot is set sometime in the near future, when the Earth is contaminated by a mysterious substance known as Tiberium. A global war ensues between the UN-formed Global Defense Initiative to contain the Tiberium, and the cult quasi-state revolutionary Brotherhood of Nod, led by the enigmatic Kane, which seeks to harness it.
As of yet, there is no official release date for Command & Conquer Remastered.
