RTS fans rejoice (sort of), Command & Conquer is back with Command & Conquer Rivals, a streamlined and focused take on the classic real time strategy series, coming to iOS and Android devices.
Command & Conquer Rivals is much more of a small-scale experience than its predecessors. It features fast paced 1v1 matches where the entire battle between you and your opponent takes place on a single static screen with a base at either side of it. Your aim is to destroy the opponent’s base, which can be done by sending troops there to attack it or (most efficiently) tomcapture the area around a giant nuclear missile in the center of the battlefield then launch it at your opponent’s base (2 missiles will destroy a base).
EA haven’t had much success finding a way to revitalize the struggling Command & Conquer franchise recently. It’s taking a very different approach with Command & Conquer Rivals – which may breathe life into the franchise or may just be another nail in the coffin. Sign up now to find out which it is – one warning sign is that there does seem to be a distinct lack of so-bad-they’re-good live action cutscenes though!
