After you launch the game, you’ll have three options to choose from.

  • Command & Conquer: Remastered 
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert Remastered
  • Map Editor, where you can build your own custom maps.

On the home screen, you’ll see the game modes and other options. 

Start New Game

Start a new Campaign.

Load Game

Jump back into a previous Campaign or Skirmish save. 

Mission Select

Choose a specific mission from the games or expansions

Skirmish & Online

Go head-to-head against AI opponents or other players


Rewatch your victories or watch other players in action.

Bonus Gallery

Extra video content you unlock through the Campaign mode.


Customize the game speed, change the screen resolution, adjust audio settings, or add your own key bindings.

This is also where you’ll find your Mods. For more on Mod Support and what you’ll be able to create, check out this EA article.


Choose a side and play through a series of missions around the globe. Use the slider to choose the difficulty level (Casual, Normal, or Hard).

Mission Select

Use the tabs to choose specific missions from Campaigns, Covert Operations from the expansions, Console Missions, or Custom Missions using your own maps.

Skirmish & Online

Play against AI teams with controllable difficulty levels in Skirmish, or go up against other players in Quickmatches. Join custom game lobbies for multiplayer matches, or host your own where you can set the rules and choose the maps.

On most missions, your aim is the same—build Structures, Infantry, and Vehicles and take total control of the map by destroying the other team and all their Structures. 

Building costs Credits, so you’ll need a source of income. Use Harvesters to collect Tiberium and bring it to your Refinery to earn more. But remember, the other side wants that Tiberium too, so get ready to fight for it.

Quick tips

  • Left-click and drag a box to select Infantry and Vehicles, then left-click on the map to move them.
  • Move them into unrevealed terrain to make it visible.
  • To make them defend an area, select them and press G.
  • To defend a specific spot on the map, select them, hold CTRL and ALT and left-click that spot.
  • Click on an enemy to attack, or hold CTRL and left-click the map to attack an area.
  • Hover near the edge of the screen to move the map, or use the direction keys. 
  • Double-click on a Mobile Construction Vehicle (MCV) to deploy it and get access to Structures.
  • Some Structures unlock new options for Infantry and Vehicles. For example, you’ll need a Barracks to start building Infantry. Check out these diagrams to learn more:
