EA has announced a release date for the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, which brings together two classic RTS games and their expansions. The compilation is coming on June 5, and will include Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn and Command & Conquer: Red Alert, along with three expansion packs: Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and The Aftermath.

The remastered versions of the games will include a visual upgrade with graphics and textures to support 4K resolution, a remastered soundtrack, revamped UI, updated Map Editor controls, and a modern infrastructure to support multiplayer modes with custom games, 1v1 quick match, matchmaking, leaderboards, and replays.

The base digital version will cost $20 through Origin and Steam. A physical Special Edition ($60) will be available through Limited Run Games and includes a USB drive pre-loaded with the remastered soundtrack, a poster, four enamel pins, tech tree prints, and a faction sticker sheet. A 25th Anniversary Edition, also through Limited Run, includes all of the Special Edition extras along with an embossed box, six-disc soundtrack signed by composer Frank Klepacki, art book, faction patches, beanie, metal mammoth tank replica, and replicas of the tesla coil and obelisk.

"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, in the announcement. "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."
