Burn Cards are no longer restricted to Titanfall’s Black Market, now that they’ve been spun off into their own game that’s slated to hit the Play Store soon. Titanfall: Frontline repackages the franchise’s mech melee and wall-running warfare into a card-based strategy game, the first in a series of Titanfall spin-offs planned for mobile devices.
Mobile developer Particle City and the Titanfall creators at ReSpawn Entertainment have joined up with famed free-to-play publisher Nexon for a multi-year, multi partnership which will see them spawn and respawn mobile games based on the Titanfall IP. So what exactly is Titanfal: Frontline all about? It’s a card game, but Titanfall: Frontline “is unapologetically intense and utterly Titanfall,” said Larry Pacey, co-founder of developer Particle City.
As for the gameplay itself? Along with Burn Cards, Titanfall: Frontline features hundreds of cards you can use to build your own decks for head-to-head battles against other players in real time. Those include mech and pilot cards, which you can collect and upgrade or augment with Burn Cards.
Instead of signaling that your pilot would very much like a huge mech to plunge from a dropship to just a few yards away from where you’re standing, you can toss one of your Titan cards onto the table whenever you need a game changer. And instead chaining together key or button presses to wall run and then mount a mech, you can play a combination of Rodeo and Parkour pilot cards for the same effect.
Titanfall: Frontline is scheduled for release this fall on both Android and iOS, but you can pre-register your dropships today. Those who preregister will receive in-game rewards whenever the game drops (pun kind ofintended). Respawns is promising to share more details about the game today and Titanfall: Frontline’s website should go live any moment now.
So what do you think about this latest entry that’s about to join the increasingly crowded niche of mobile card games? Does it sound novel enough to stand out and attract a sustainable community? Let us know in the comments.
