EMERYVILLE, Calif. – August 10, 2017 – Standby for Titanfall, anywhere, anytime. Nexon, Respawn Entertainment and Particle City have released Titanfall®: Assault, a new mobile RTS that redefines the genre with fast-paced action and intense PvP battles. Set in the extended universe of the best-selling Titanfall franchise, players will build and use a deck of virtual cards to deploy agile Pilots, towering Titans and tactical Burn Cards in fast-paced synchronous multiplayer battles. Titanfall: Assault is available now as free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices.
“When we set out to create Titanfall we wanted as many gamers as possible to have a chance to explore and experience this deep, action-packed universe,” said Vince Zampella, CEO and co-founder of Respawn. “Today, we’re one step closer to that vision with the launch of Titanfall: Assault which brings a fast, fun and strategic head-to-head multiplayer experience to the millions of mobile gamers worldwide.”
As Commanders, players can create the ultimate squad of Pilots, Titans and Burn Cards to suit their preferred playing style. Pilots will use their fluid movement on the battlefield to navigate, take on grunts and control key locations on the map. Titans will hold the lanes, provide invaluable defense and show their true power when taking on turrets. Burn Cards will add the necessary battlefield support to tip the scales of combat when they are needed most. To win the battle on the Frontier, players must hone and adapt their strategies across a variety of maps which feature familiar locales and unique environmental elements for players to use to their advantage. Titanfall’s battle-tested gameplay mode, Hardpoint Domination, will have competitors vying for control of the map or going for all the glory by defeating the enemy base in order to win big rewards and climb the leaderboards.
“ Titanfall: Assault combines the iconic fluid action of Titanfall with a competitive RTS experience to bring the series in an exciting new direction,” said Larry Pacey, co-founder, Particle City. “With its tale of interplanetary conflict and massive mechs battling for the upper hand, the Titanfall universe has all of the ingredients for the type of real-time strategy games we love to play.”
Between battles, players can enter the Hangar to view cards, edit and experiment with new squads and upgrade their Titans, Pilots and Burn Cards. Through the Guild, players can work together to achieve weekly Guild objectives, share replays and challenge guild mates to friendly matches to create battle ready squads and perfect their strategies together.
