New War Commander: Rogue Assault game comes from Command & Conquer co-creator
If you have been hoping for a mobile game that offers the same kind of military real-time strategy gameplay that was found in the classic Command & Conquer PC series, your wishes have been granted this week. Publisher Kixeye has released War Commander: Rogue Assault, an ambitious mobile RTS game for Android and iOS. The team behind the game was lead by Louis Castle, the co-creator of the Command & Conquer franchise.
War Commander itself has been a long time coming; it was in development for nearly three years before this week’s launch. Visually, the game’s military units and structures have a near-future look that’s very similar to the games released in the main Command & Conquer series. One difference is that those units and buildings are available immediately to players after they are selected, rather than having to wait a while for those units to be built inside the game’s map.
War Commander also allows players to control individual units, unlike other mobile RTS games, but similar to PC titles. The game does have a single player campaign with 100 missions, along with online multiplayer features. The game is free to download and play, but it does contain in-app purchases. Castle told VentureBeat that now that War Commander has been released, the team will continue to add new content for at least the next two years.
