Your typical Titanfall 2 match is a fast and furious affair that doesn’t leave you a lot of time for careful strategizing, but that won’t stop the series from attempting a more tactical spin-off. Titanfall: Assault is a real-time strategy/deck management mobile game coming to iOS and Android devices from publisher Nexon and developers Respawn Entertainment and Particle City.
Here’s how the game is described on its official website:
Join the fight for The Frontier in this fast and fluid real-time strategy game. Combine towering Titans and agile Pilots to build an unstoppable force. Put your skills to the test as you assemble the ultimate deck of Pilots and Titans paired into heroic duos. Collect and upgrade dozens of cards including tactical Burn Cards providing powerful battlefield support. Strategize your way to victory over enemy forces in epic PvP battles and compete for glory and rewards on the leaderboards. Combine and conquer. Unite and destroy. And lead your forces to victory in The Frontier War.
- Deploy your Pilots and Titans in fast-paced, fluid battles
- Fight head-to-head in dynamic Real-Time Strategy warfare
- Deploy your forces on multiple maps across The Frontier
- Combine and conquer with a powerful deck of Pilots, Titans, and Burn Cards
- Upgrade your squad to conquer the Frontier
The first Titanfall: Assault screenshots, which you can check out in the gallery, below, actually look solid, and apparently Respawn is going to be pretty hands-on with the game, so it could be good. It certainly couldn’t be worse than the quickly-cancelled 2016 game, Titanfall: Frontline.
We don’t yet know how Titanfall: Assault will be sold, although I’m guessing free-to-play with buyable card packs. A release date has also not been revealed, although you can sign up for notifications, right here.
