Command & Conquer Remastered Collection launches on Origin and Steam on 5th June, EA has announced. It's also part of the Origin Access Premier subscription.

The remaster of the seminal 1995 real-time strategy game features 4K graphics, rebuilt multiplayer, a tweaked user interface, a remastered soundtrack by original composer Frank Klepacki as well as upscaled FMVs.

The collection includes Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, Command & Conquer: Red Alert and their three expansion packs: Covert Ops, Counterstrike and The Aftermath. It's the work of Petroglyph, which was founded by some of the original developers after EA shut down Westwood Studios.

"Our team has been working hand-in-hand with the C&C community since day one and we hope this transparent dialogue will result in the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection being a love letter to our fans," said Jim Vessella, lead producer at EA.

"We're taking the classic gameplay that ushered in a new era of the RTS genre and adding the most fan requested features like Skirmish mode for Tiberian Dawn, quality of life control improvements, and full Steam integration with UGC support. For me personally, having been a C&C fan since I was 12 years old in 1995, working with the original Westwood Studios team members at Petroglyph has been a dream come true."

There's are physical editions of Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, too, from Limited Run Games. The $150 25th Anniversary Edition includes a metal mammoth tank replica and painted PVC light and sound tesla coil and obelisk replicas.
