Titanfall Gets A Mobile Trading Card Game

Coming this spring to Android and iOS from Nexon and developer Particle City, Titanfall: Frontline is a strategy trading card game in which massive battles between IMC and Militia forces play out in turn-based fashion. Yes, there are burn cards. Taking the role of brigade commanders, players form decks of pilots, Titans and the aforementioned tactical burn cards and march into battle against other commanders. Do you try and swarm the enemy player with smaller, low-cost forces, or build up defences in order to hold out for heavy armour deployment? Man, I don't know. That's all up to you.

Titanfall: Frontline is the first game in an exclusive multi-year partnership between Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, publisher Nexon and mobile developer Particle City, co-founded by Respawn's own Vince Zampella. So I guess that makes them a pretty good fit.

"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 and that will help evolve the genre," said Larry Pacey, the other co-founder of Particle City via official announcement. "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."

Heeee, Titan Fell.

Players interested in joining the card-based battles this fall can pre-register for the game at the Titanfall: Frontline website for some sort of special launch day bonus.

    "Everyone else was doing it, I just wanted to be popular!"

    Is this article paid content by the makers of this card game? It reads exactly like a press release that would be put out by a marketing department.
    Can we please get some verification on whether all non quoted parts of this article are indeed original writings by Mike Fahey and whether or not kotaku.com was paid for this article?

      Hey John, we have no reason to hide any of our paid content, everything that is paid will be clearly marked as an advertorial or partner content.

      When we haven't played a game ourselves, we don't usually have much else to go off other than a press release. This is one of those stories. I'm sure you'll see something a little more personal when one of our writers gets their hands on the game :)

    “From [playing a card] to [using a combination of two or more cards], Titanfall: Frontline is unapologetically intense and utterly Titanfall.”

    I think I know how the rest of the press release went...'we've teamed up with our partners at AT&T to create an entirely new and innovative gameplay experience. Welcome to the next evolution of the mobile strategy card trading game'

    I'm personally digging the simplified art for the game. Makes the pilots look sleek and the Titans bulky. I like it!
