Command and Conquer: Red Alert Remake Fan Project Details

Titled officially as “C&C Red Alert Redux,” this project is a C&C Generals Zero Hour mod that adds much of C&C Red Alert’s gameplay elements, complete with its own AI. Currently, subfactions and story campaigns are not yet available but will be added at a later date.
