New Titanfall Real-Time Strategy Game Announced For Mobile Devices


GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
There's a new Titanfall game in the works, but it's not another first-person shooter. Developer Respawn today announced Titanfall: Assault, a real-time strategy game for iOS and Android devices.

Respawn is working with mobile publishing house Nexon and developer Particle City to create the game, which requires players to build up armies of Pilots and Titans. In a press release, the developer stated that it's a player vs. player, "strategic objective-based" experience.

It states that players will have to create a "deck" of Titans, Pilots, and Burn Cards, the one-time-use perks that were in the original Titanfall. One of the screenshots released by the developer shows what looks like an inventory, where different units are stored before being deployed in-game.

"The PvP matchups play out across different maps across the Frontier War and will require opponents to create and deploy their custom squad on the battlefield in order to outmaneuver enemy forces and win valuable rewards on the leaderboards," the statement reads.

Considering the meat and potatoes of Titanfall, IMO, are the wall-running, I'm not sure this will have the feel of a Titanfall game. Yes, it'll have mechs, but how can it feel similar?

I think the various loadouts and Titans can make a good base set for building an RTS. The act of wall running won't fit, but it can be represented through pilot positioning on the map. We'll see if developer Particle City can do Respawn's title justice.

Why doesn't anyone do a robotech game?, I often murmur in my dreams.

The primary reason is Harmony Gold, who holds the license on Robotech, and who blocks any Macross game from coming to the US.
