The release of Titanfall 2 may feel like a lifetime away but don’t fret! A standalone mobile card game set in the extended universe is heading to Iphone and Android devices this fall. Oh, and it’s free.
Nexon, in collaboration with Respawn Entertainment and Particle City, has revealed that Titanfall: Frontline will place gamers in the role of brigade Commanders. Facing off in head-to-head combat with other players in real-time, players will use combinations of Pilots, Titans and Burn Cards in an attempt to outmaneuver their opponents.
“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…,” said Larry Pacey, co-founder of Particle City. “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.”
Commanders will collect and upgrade their units and build their own decks. Players can build their IMC or Militia squad according to their play style.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for the team at Respawn and for the Titanfall fans around the world…,” said Vince Zampella, CEO, Respawn Entertainment. “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.”
With the growing popularity of games like Hearthstone and Gwent, it should come as no surprise that other companies are developing similar style games. But what do YOU think? Are you going to spend some time using burn cards, or are you going to wait until the release of Titanfall 2 at the end of October? Let us know!
