A modern take on the tactical strategy genre makes its public debut during Gamescom 2012 as Montreal game publisher Meridian4 and Danish game developer Full Control announce Frontline Tactics. A tactical strategy game for the PC, Mac, iPad and iPhone, Frontline Tactics can be played in single-player mode, or two different multiplayer modes across either of the different gaming platforms. Players can be playing on their iPad or iPhone against others who may be playing on their Windows laptop or iMac.
“Frontline Tactics is the ideal game for today’s player who often has multiple gaming devices and extremely limited time to play,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director of Meridian4. “The turn-based nature of the game, coupled with its multiplatform support lets you play whenever and wherever you want.”
The year is 2025 and the world still runs on oil . A small splinter military group led by a madman named Akhali Muhamar threatens to take over the oil-rich nation of Fahrahn. The country is a large oil supplier to the Western world and national interests are threatened. An elite group of soldiers are called in to lead a proactive attempt to quell the uprising and attempt to maintain peace through military action before it turns into full scale war.
Frontline Tactics lets players command a modern, elite fighting unit over varied missions from defending and controlling a location or asset, to all-out elimination and survival. Outfit your soldiers with modern weapons, armor and equipment and give them the skills to succeed on the battlefield. Play against a ruthless and cunning AI in single player or simultaneously battle it out in multiplayer in versus or co-op modes over multiple platforms.
Frontline Tactics will be on display during Gamescom at the Full Control booth located in Hall 4.2, booth J-045.
