When details for the Command and Conquer Remastered Collection were revealed in May, there was one notable missing feature: LAN support. At the time, Producer Jim Vessella said that they were unable to finish implementing it due to the COVID-19 outbreak. He did, however, state they intended to add it at a later date. Well, the wait is over, as the latest patch has added it.

As requested by the community over the course of the project, this update includes our official implementation of LAN Play.  LAN Play allows players to enjoy Mod content in multiplayer and should be an evergreen way to enjoy multiplayer far into the future.  We did our best to test this feature amongst the COVID situation during development, along with attempting to get feedback from the community via Beta patches.  But given the variety of ways people could play over VPN and with Mods, we expect there still to be some quirks in the system.  Please continue to provide feedback so we can make any refinements going forward.

Patch Details

  1. LAN Play
  2. Balance adjustments to address several key issues
  3. Incorporating community maps as official Quickmatch maps
  4. Dozens of QoL improvements and bug fixes across the board
  5. Upcoming Quickmatch leaderboard reset

The amount of bug fixes, new features, and quality of life improvements is quite extensive. Honestly, it appears there could be over a hundred of them. Players can check the patch notes to see everything that has been addressed.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
