New Command & Conquer announced... but only for mobile


Instead of throwing armies against each other's bases, the game has players fighting over three point-accumulating pads for control over nuclear missiles - launch two at your enemy, and you win.

A new "Command and Conquer" game is coming to mobile devices, EA announced today. Games are played over the internet against friends or strangers. We're going to be providing live coverage of every major PC-relevant conference, plus previews of all the biggest games straight from the show floor, including hands-on impressions and interviews with the developers who made them. Following the announcement, the free-to-play game was released into pre-alpha, and can be downloaded now. Both classic factions, the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod, will be playable. Featuring intense, 1v1 real-time matches with rival commanders, you test your skills in combat in the War for Tiberium.

Microtransactions will be present, but EA says anything that's able to be bought will also be available for free simply by playing the game.

"As huge fans of the strategy genre, we wanted to build a great RTS on mobile". Either way, EA's certainly poised to scoop up a share of the mind-blowingly lucrative mobile gaming market if Rivals takes off. "We, the development team, are committed to delivering a fun, fair, and competitive experience for all players." stated Martinez.
