Command & Conquer Remastered Collection Launch Plans

A post on Reddit EA reveals plans for tomorrow's launch of the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, which the story above reminds us is coming to Steam as well as Origin. Here's a personal message from Kane on the release (thanks Ant), and here's the plan:
We’re now 24 hours away from the worldwide launch of the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection. It’s crazy to think how less than two years ago the project didn’t even exist, and now here we are on the verge of coming together to enjoy the launch of a C&C title on PC. On a personal note, the development with Petroglyph and Lemon Sky has been one of the most incredible experiences of my career. But I would argue the collaboration with the community here on Reddit, and with the Council on Discord, has been the absolute highlight of the journey. Thank you to everyone in the C&C community for their encouragement, positive energy, and engagement throughout this project. We certainly hope the game lives up to your expectations when you begin playing, and can live on with the community as you begin delving into the source code and UGC tools.

Over the past 18 months, transparency has been at the core of the interaction I wanted to have with all of you in the community. I would thus be lying if I didn’t say 2020 has been a tough year, and at times it’s been difficult to stay positive and hopeful. I simply wanted to say how grateful I am for everyone in the community who has expressed their support of the project and our teams. While we hope the Remastered Collection can provide a positive event for all of you in this time, we do not want the launch to take away from the events happening in the world. Please stand together, stay safe, and support your communities during these moments.

With regards to the launch, we’ve always had several items planned for the next 24 hours. Be sure to join us on YouTube to view our Launch Trailer as the game goes live at 10:00am PDT on June 5th. And then rumors have been circling about the return of an infamous leader, along with the leak of classified intel from HQ…

As we come together to view this content and participate in the game itself, please continue to stay positive and respectful within our C&C community and with others. Thanks again for all your support, and we hope you enjoy the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection.

So excited. It really sounds like a labor of love. They even got EVA's voice actress back to re-record her lines!

So cool. I can't wait to dive back into this universe.

I’m still in disbelief. Are you sure that this is EA we’re talking about? Electronic Arts???

No Origin requirement. A full source code release under an open source license. It’s like they’re actually saying thank you to the fans. I preordered and I never preorder anything.

It would appear so. I only see "Requires agreement to a 3rd-party EULA Command & Conquer™ Remastered Collection EULA." No mention of Origin.

I just hope it's better than the last high profile RTS remaster (Warcraft 3). /sigh

Considering it's a remaster, not a[n attempted] remake, I don't think there's much for them to screw up... It supports up to 4K resolution, so the UI was polished and the assets were upscaled, but nothing has changed in the art style or how much detail there is on the units or buildings (very little). Then they smeared vasoline all over the FMV cutscenes and remastered the music. BOOM, done. At least the multiplayer will work again, for those who want to bask in the nostalgia as a group.
