E3 2018: EA Announces Command & Conquer Rivals

I've never touched a Command & Conquer game, but for fans of the series, it looks like EA's crafting a great way to get your strategy fix while on the go. They will update their gameplay and matchmaking systems directly from player and community feedback from the Pre-Alpha and beyond. The title is inspired by Clash Royale, but it allows you to control your units after deployment. The game's official reveal trailer has been downvoted about 29,000 times on YouTube at the time of writing, and the gameplay trailer is also not doing well with 11,000 downvotes.

Command and Conquer Rivals is available for early access on Android devices.

The new game will pit players against each other as they try to attack and defend their bases.

Command & Conquer: Rivals is the first new C&C game since Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, which was a free-to-play game on browsers.

According to EA's blog post, players are given continuous control of all their units at all times. That wait, it seems, isn't quite over but there is confirmation that EA is still thinking about the property. "We, the development team, are committed to delivering a fun, fair, and competitive experience for all players." stated Martinez.

Command & Conquer, EA SPORTS, Battlefield, The Sims, Need for Speed, Dragon Age, and Plants vs. Zombies are trademarks of Electronic Arts Inc. Whether that strategy will pay off remains to be seen, but Command & Conquer Rivals is already getting a wildly mixed reaction from gamers.
