Game publisher Electronic Arts has one unique skill - they know how to get video game fans crazy. Fans have recently received a hostile reception on the first Battlefield 5 trailer, but these are flowers compared to what happened when the publisher announced Command and Conquer Rivals on EA Play. The long-awaited sequel to one of the most famous series in the history of strategy games ... turned out to be just a free game like Clash of Clans for smartphones.
The desire to transfer the once great series to the niche of free-to-play entertainment for smartphones was dictated by the desire to introduce the game to a young and casual audience. And the smartphone has long become one of the most popular gaming platforms, and free Clash of Clans copies collect huge profits, so EA's decision can be understood from a financial point of view.
But fans of the famous strategy did not like this approach. They accuse the publisher of not giving a damn about gamers, and instead of a large-scale revival of the famous franchise, they slip a craft into the free-play players. A colossal amount of dislikes for Electronic Arts videos has accumulated under the Command and Conquer Rivals gameplay video. There are 50 times more negative marks than likes, and this number is constantly growing. In light of the recent announcement, it is even more offensive for the canceled Generals 2, which, although it was supposed to be distributed according to the Free2Play model, looked a hundred times better than Rivals.
Be that as it may, but you can download Command and Conquer Rivals for Android today. And for all fans of big strategy games in real time, we invite you to familiarize yourself with our other material, where they chose the top 10 best RTS of all time.
