Welcome Back, Commander
Has it really been nearly two decades? Yes, it relly has. Seventeen years and seventeen games after Westwood first released Command & Conquer, EA are celebrating the RTS-series' longevity with a bumper Ultimate Collection.
EA have the release vaguely penciled in for "this fall" in the States, with the price currently marked as $49.99. It will be available for pre-order here eventually, but there was nothing about the collection at the time of writing.
“As long time fans of the Command & Conquer franchise, we are excited to be able to help celebrate the legacy of the series with this compilation. Our passion for this fantastic portfolio is helping drive us as we deliver the next great Command & Conquer experience next year,” said Jon Van Caneghem, Vice President and General Manager, Electronic Arts.
