Taking up the old Electronic Arts strategy series in a way that wasn’t exactly what fans wanted, Command & Conquer: Rival was given an official debut date. The mobile game is scheduled to arrive on Android and iOS on December 4, accompanied by a competitive schedule planned by the developer.

Available at launch, the Rivals Champions mode will be the company’s first step in creating a competitive landscape on a global scale. In addition to financing a professional league, her intention is that the game also has community tournaments and become a force in the competitive scene in the mobile market.

To ensure that Rivals Champions operate fairly, Command & Conquer: Rivals will divide your players into skill rankings – the more you win, the more skilled your opponents will be. EA general manager Michael Martinez says the game’s “soft launch” helped ensure that the December launch will be strong enough and that the company will work closely with players to create an active eSports scene.
