Posted by | June 09, 2018 | Mobile, News, Video | One Comment

How the mighty have fallen. Command & Conquer, once one of the biggest names in PC strategy games, has been rebooted as a mobile PvP game. Command & Conquer: Rivals was announced during the EA Play 2018 press conference. A release date was not announced, but players can pre-register for a chance to play the pre-alpha at the main website.

“As huge fans of the strategy genre, we wanted to build a great RTS on mobile. Rivals embraces the spirit of the Command & Conquer franchise and reimagines gameplay to deliver our vision,” said Michael Martinez, General Manager of Redwood Studios. “Rivals is specifically designed for mobile, so we’re giving players quick, head-to head live battles with continuous unit control, where skill and strategy reign supreme. The Google Play Pre-Alpha test allows us to put the game in the hands of our players earlier. We can’t wait to hear what they think and will use our players’ feedback to make Rivals better. We, the development team, are committed to delivering a fun, fair, and competitive experience for all players.”

The mobile game pits both players on the same screen as they secure capture points using classic C&C units. The goal is to control more points to power a missile that strikes your opponent’s base.  Players can select from multiple commanders from the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod and customize their army.

Command & Conquer: Rivals is coming to iOS and Android. Pre-registering begins today.
