The game will also come with a gripping singleplayer campaign. In this mode, players will learn to plot strategy, construct bases, form their armies, deploy defenses and call in airstrikes.

I didn't get to play the original, but I can say I am looking forward to playing the remaster, as I like me some mech combat and RTS gameplay. Would be nice to see Steam Workshop support as well.
