REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Commanders, the war for Tiberium is here! Today, Electronic Arts Inc.
(NASDAQ: EA) officially launched Command Conquer™: Rivals,
a fast-paced, real-time strategy (RTS) action game for Android and iOS
devices worldwide. Built from the ground up specifically for mobile, Command
Conquer: Rivals offers innovative player versus player (PVP)
gameplay, with intuitive controls that enable players to focus their
efforts on strategy and skill as they face off in intense 1v1 battles.
“Over the past few months, we’ve made the world talk about Command
Conquer more and it has been really exciting to see,” said Michael
Martinez, General Manager of Redwood Studios. “We’ve been playing Rivals
every day with our community, working with them to make it as fun and
balanced as it can be. Our goal was to bring something new to mobile
players who play RTS games, giving them full control of their every
move, to bring out their true competitive skill.”
In Command Conquer: Rivals, players must lead their faction
to victory, choosing between the hi-tech Global Defense Initiative or
the faster-paced Brotherhood of Nod factions. It’s supreme Colonel
Jackson vs the fan-favorite Kane. True to the iconic RTS series,
planning and tactical execution are keys to winning. Moves are quick and
frenetic, and each match requires a unique approach where players must
create their best combination of infantry, tanks, aircraft, and
behemoths in order to defend and out-maneuver an opponent.
Competition is at the heart of this game with Rivals Champions, an
exclusive in-game weekend event available at launch. In Rivals
Champions, players of all skill levels can compete in a unique
matchmaking pool with different ranked tiers, and the better a player
performs, the bigger the rewards. Next year, EA’s competitive gaming
roster will expand with Command Conquer: Rivals. Rivals
Champions, modeled after the immensely popular FIFA Ultimate Team
Champions in FIFA, is the signature competitive experience where the
development team will work with the community to launch a
multi-continent esports program in 2019.
Command Conquer: Rivals is available to download on the App
Store and Google Play. For more information and to stay up to date on
