Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall series is coming to mobile platforms in the form of a real-time strategy game called Titanfall: Assault, publisher Nexon and developers Particle City and Respawn announced today.

Titanfall: Assault is described as a “fast and fluid real-time PvP mobile strategy game” in which players will build an army of titans and pilots, then send them into battle in “a strategic objective-based PvP gameplay experience.”

Here’s the official description of the game, which is coming to Android and iOS devices, via the press release:

In Titanfall: Assault, players will put their RTS skills to the test as they collect, upgrade and assemble a deck of Pilots, Titans and tactical Burn Cards which provide powerful battlefield support. 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.

Titanfall: Assault is the second attempt to bring Titanfall to mobile devices. Nexon, Respawn and Particle City announced Titanfall: Frontline, a card-based strategy game, in 2016. Titanfall: Frontline was canceled, however, just a few months after it was announced.

Nexon and Respawn announced a multi-year, multi-game partnership in 2015, so Titanfall: Assault may not be the last effort to bring the sci-fi shooter series to mobile platforms.
