EMERYVILLE, Calif. – September 12, 2016 Nexon, in collaboration with Respawn Entertainment and Particle City, has revealed Titanfall®: Frontline, the debut standalone mobile game set in the extended universe of the best-selling franchise, Titanfall. Titanfall: Frontline is 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.
