Titanfall: Frontline is set for release on iOS and Android devices later this year.
The game is the first release in a multi-year deal between Nexon, developers Particle City and Respawn Entertainment to exclusively publish mobile games based on the Titanfall universe.
Frontline is the first effort from the new partnership and features real-time, head-to-head matches with other online players. By using Pilots, Titans and special ability Burn Cards, players – who assume the role of brigade Commanders – can build their IMC or Militia squad according to their play style.
Larry Pacey, co-founder of Particle City said:
“We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Respawn to weave in card battle strategy and collectibility with the iconic gameplay elements that make Titanfall so unique and that will help evolve the genre. From dropping a Titan onto the field of play to turn the tide of battle to using a combination of Parkour and Rodeo Burn Cards to take a Titan down, Titanfall: Frontline is unapologetically intense and utterly Titanfall.”
Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella is excited, too:
“This is an incredibly exciting time for the team at Respawn and for the Titanfall fans around the world with two completely unique games in the Titanfall universe launching soon – Titanfall 2 and Titanfall: Frontline. Not only does Titanfall: Frontline capture an experience that feels distinctly Titanfall but it delivers quick and strategic action that anyone with a smartphone will be able to download and enjoy.”
The jury’s out on this one. It’s a little disappointing to see yet another franchise shoe-horned into the card game genre but it looks decent enough and at least it’s not a match 3 puzzler. We’ll just have to make a wish to the game fairy that the next title from the partnership between Nexon and Respawn is the mech parkour auto-runner we’ve always dreamed of.
The game will be released this fall as a free download on iOS App Store and Google Play store.
