Electronic Arts announced today that its real-time strategy franchise Command & Conquer is heading to Android and iOS with Command & Conquer: Rivals. EA revealed the game during its EA Play event today in Los Angeles ahead of next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
As it stand players choose between GDI or Nod forces, and then pick one of three commanders, each with their own unique ability. The gaemplay itself looks a lot like a mixture of tug-of-war and tower defense, with units duking it out on a hex grid. Players compose their teams of six units from a larger pool before each battle. So at the very least there’s a layer of strategy to unit selection.
Be the judge of whether you want to give it a try from the gameplay trailer, linked below.
This new mobile game is out now, if you need another mobile game from EA to pester you to spend money. Be aware that it’s in prealpha, so expect bugs and weirdness.
