Command and Conquer: Rivals is Coming Exclusively to Mobile, Available on Android Now

The latest Command and Conquer game is a mobile exclusive.

Command and Conquer EA's real-time strategy game of world domination is coming back, but on mobile. That's right, Command & Conquer Rivals is coming iOS and Android.

It's been six years since the last official Command & Conquer game, and I'm sure many of us were expecting a PC release. But EA is promising a RTS Command & Conquer experience built from the ground up for mobile and designed for 1v1 PvP.

Like other RTS games, the goal is to take over your opponent's territory using missiles to destroy the enemy base. It looks like the game has some MOBA elements based on a live demo played on the EA Play stage.

Players can pre-register for Command & Conquer: Rivals starting today so the game will be instantly downloaded to your device when it launches worldwide. It is available for pre-release on Android devices now.

Players will choose either the Global Defense Initiative or the Brotherhood of Nod factions and select specific commanders to lead their armies into battle. Build up your armies, engage in strategic combat, and maybe one day they'll bring back Tim Curry's Anatoly Chedenko back to the game.

The new Command & Conquer: Rivals was announced as part of today's EA Play announcements. For a full breakdown of new game announcements and trailers check out our E3 EA guide.
