Dominate Opponents in Real-Time 1v1 Matches for Quick, Competitive Gaming Wherever Players Are

September 6, 2018 – Electronic Arts today announced the global rollout of Command & Conquer™: Rivals  continues with the game now available to players in Australia and New Zealand.  Rivals is the fresh and innovative player versus player (PVP) real-time strategy game (RTS) built from the ground up for mobile devices.

Command & Conquer: Rivals delivers action-packed head-to-head battles with the added advantage of being on a mobile platform for on-the-go face-offs. Planning and strategy are key to victory in Rivals, where both high-level strategy and tactical excellence are required to take down opposing armies. Players can tailor their approach as they choose from an arsenal of commanders, forces, and custom deck builds to create winning combinations.

Players in Australia and New Zealand can look forward to experiencing changes to the game implemented based on feedback from Rivals’ Pre-Alpha announced earlier this summer, as well as additions based on more recent feedback. The team has introduced a Friends List and a massive in-game suite of features called the C&C network, as well as two new Units – the Juggernaut and the GIGA-Cannon. The developers at Redwood Studios have also been hard at work integrating matchmaking system changes that ensure players are having a fun and fair experience in Command & Conquer: Rivals. Additional features will also be added in during the road to worldwide launch, such as unit level caps, which place players within different ranks based on their progress, rewards for winning streaks, and progress milestones that keep player’s current level safe while they push to advance to the next level.

During the Rivals global rollout period, the development team will continue the feedback dialog with players and will be implementing changes to the gameplay over time, with the aim of delivering the best experience possible in the final game. Players can share share their thoughts on current features and features they’d like to see added to Command & Conquer: Rivals here.

Command & Conquer: Rivals is now available on iOS and Android devices as a free download in Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand, and will be available worldwide later this year. Rivals fans and mobile gamers worldwide can look forward to the worldwide official launch coming soon.
