Titanfall: Assault launches tomorrow, August 10th, on Android and iOS.
Android players who pre-register for the game on the Google Play store will receive an exclusive Android Titan on launch, according to Respawn Entertainment’s press release.
The game features a deck-building element to manage your Titans, units and support abilities, with RTS-style gameplay where your deck can be deployed tactically on the battlefield.
The publishers gave an overview of the game:
In Titanfall: Assault, players will put their RTS skills to the test as they collect, upgrade and assemble a deck of Pilots, Titans and tactical Burn Cards which provide powerful battlefield support. The PvP matchups play out across different maps all across the Frontier War and will require opponents to create and deploy their custom squad on the battlefield in order to outmaneuver enemy forces and win valuable rewards on the leader boards.
Following the critically-acclaimed but commercially-difficult Titanfall 2, the developers are continuing to push in new directions, and hope this title will help them crack the mobile market.
The new units available in the game have been teased over the past few days on Youtube, with Sim Ninja and Core Scorch looking brutal and I can’t wait to get my hands on them!
This new game rises from the ashes of the previously-proposed card-battle game Titanfall: Frontline which would have been a strategic, potentially turn-based, tabletop-style game which was cancelled shortly after being teased to the press. The new game completely overhauls the gameplay while retaining the deck-building element from TF:Frontline.
