Titanfall: Frontline

Prepare for Titanfall… the card game.

Later this year the mech shooter series will make its debut on mobile with Titanfall: Frontline, a free-to-play spinoff coming to both iOS and Android. It’s described as "a strategy card game where players, assuming the role of brigade commanders, will face off in head-to-head combat with other players in real-time." It looks a bit like other digital card games such as Hearthstone, but with towering robotic mechs and gun-wielding pilots in place of fantasy creatures.

Titanfall: Frontline

Frontline is being developed by new studio Particle City, and published by Korean firm Nexon, which previously worked with Titanfall studio Respawn to release a free-to-play PC version of the game in Asia. A mobile take on Titanfall was first announced last year, and Frontline is just the first of what is expected to be a multi-game partnership between the three companies. "Not only does Titanfall: Frontline capture an experience that feels distinctly Titanfall," says Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, "but it delivers quick and strategic action that anyone with a smartphone will be able to download and enjoy."

The multiplayer-focused Titanfall debuted in 2014 as the first release from Respawn, a studio founded by some of the key minds behind Call of Duty, including Zampella. A sequel is launching on October 28th, which will add a number of new features, most notably a proper single-player campaign. Respawn is also currently working on a third-person action game set in the Star Wars universe.

Frontline, meanwhile, is expected to launch sometime this fall.
