Out of nowhere, an EA employee under the tag EA_Aeter wrote a news post on Steam that the C&C Remastered Collection has been patched on the server side with the following changes:

  • Reset the Quickmatch ladder and launched Season 4
  • Quickmatch ladder resets will now happen automatically every three months at the beginning of each month starting June 1
  • Removed the Turkey sub-faction Build Speed bonus (essentially reverted back to June 2020 launch status)

It is important to note that the Turkey subfaction bonus will remain as it was before this hotfix in skirmish and LAN multiplayer.

Tiberium Essence CABAL update

10 December 2020 Off

Command & Conquer 3's Tiberium Essence mod is a community favorite. Not only does it alter Tiberium Wars to bring it closer to Tiberian Sun's level of advanced technology and Tiberium wildlife, but it also brings many new additions, one of which is a fully-playable Forgotten faction. Tiberium Essence 1 retains the original faction, but Tiberium Essence 2 will go into more interesting directions.

While Tiberium Essence 2's first version added the Forgotten, the next version will also bring a playable CABAL faction. Just in time for the holidays, as usual, mod author Carnius has posted some screenshots of the upcoming CABAL faction to Tiberium Essence's ModDB page, as well as a short update on where development stands for the next release.
