Gameplay Edit

Game Mode Edit

Matches of Titanfall: Assault are in real time and are conducted live against other players. They take place in a variant of the Hardpoint Domination gamemode of the original Titanfall, with the central objective being the capture and holding of three Hardpoints situated on the map. Capturing a neutral Hardpoint or neutralizing an enemy Hardpoint with any friendly unit takes about five seconds, holding a Hardpoint will give players one score approximately every four seconds, and victory is achieved when a player reaches one hundred (100) points. Alternatively, players can instantly win a match by pushing forward into the enemy base and destroying the Heavy Turret situated there.

Players can also play against a variety of AI-controlled Commanders, if they wish to practice new strategies and decks in an offline environment and against assorted tactics. The game provides a beginner's tutorial on the game's overall mechanics and additional advanced tutorials for topics such as squad management and specific maps.

Squad Edit

Full article: Burn Card (Titanfall: Assault)

TFA Squad

The Squad, or "Dropship," is the collection of Pilots, Titans and Burn Cards that a player takes into battle. A Squad must contain three Pilots, three Titans and four Burn Cards, and a commander can have a maximum of three pre-designed Squads at any time. Each card has its own cost (the amount of in-game supply required to deploy that card onto the field) as well as its own level that dictates overall strength. Collecting duplicate cards counts as experience points for those units, and an additional payment of Credits is required to level up a card. Players must wisely consider the costs, strength and utility of their units when designing their Squad and their overall strategy for a battle. It should be noted that you cannot see the specifics of an enemy commander's Squad until after a match ends.

Pilots typically serve as the primary units that can be employed by the player; every Pilot has a unique specialty or behavior, and most will automatically move to capture or contest enemy Hardpoints and push the objective. Titans serve as heavy troops that can only be deployed after the one minute mark; while they cannot capture Hardpoints themselves, they are powerful units and have varied roles and behaviors similar to Pilots. Burn Card support can vary from infantry squads and turrets to orbital strikes and supply depots.

Maps Edit

Matches in Titanfall: Assault take place across a small assortment of maps, most of which are based on previous locations presented in Titanfall and Titanfall 2. Each map has its own layout, and most maps have one or two specific mechanics or features that must be taken into consideration. Maps are chosen randomly at the beginning of every match.

Ranking Up Edit

Full article: Trophy (Titanfall: Assault)

Titanfall: Assault features a level-up system based on how many matches are won by the player. During matches, players can earn Trophies, with the player's total Trophy count determining where they are placed in the rank system. The rank system is divided into Bronze, Silver, Gold and Titanium tiers, with each tier having three sub-ranks from I to III. Ranking up will unlock new cards for acquisition.

Ranking beyond Titanium III will place the player in a seasonal bracket, with two ranks War Hero and Legend available. At the end of a season, the player will be reset back to the beginning of their rank (6200 or 7200 Trophies, respectively) and given a Season End Cache, but all other ranks (Bronze-Titanium) will be kept.

A separate levelling system of XP also exists in game to unlock separate features such as new maps and social features, as well as dictate the maximum level that cards in a player's collection can level up to.

Social Features Edit

The game also features a system of Guilds, similar to Titanfall 2's Networks, unlocked at Level 3. Guilds can have an emblem (With a wide selection based on Titan Insignias and Banners of previous games), alongside private or public settings, location and a required trophy count to join. The game also features a messaging and chat system, and a "Replays" feature, that allows players to record and watch their matches over again.

Guilds can also complete Guild Missions, an ongoing narrative that tells the story of the conflict around the gas giant Kraken.

Post-Launch Support Edit

Several Burn Cards, such as one allowing the use of Plasma Drones, have been hinted at. The official Titanfall: Assault Facebook page has also run a vote, for community feedback on whether Jack Cooper and BT-7274 or Kuben Blisk and his Legion Titan should be added to the game next.[3]

Jack Cooper and BT-7274 were added as new units on September 20, 2017, as part of the version 2.0.0 patch. Other new units have included Ash, Core Ronin, Arc Drones, Cloak Drone, Stalkers, Reaper Bruiser, Amp Field and Time Field. In addition, two new maps; Colony and Boomtown have been added.

Although not currently seen in-game, renders for as-yet unreleased content have been seen uploaded online. These include renders of Tone[4] and the 40mm Tracker Cannon[5], Legion's Predator Cannon[6] and others.

Trivia Edit

  • Titanfall: Assault is the second mobile game to be announced, after the now-cancelled Titanfall Frontline.
  • One of the promotional images for Assault shows an Ogre wielding a blunt melee weapon known as a Maul.
  • Interestingly, the Twitter avatar for Titanfall Assault uses an image from Titanfall Frontline.[7]
  • The game provides numerous tips and flavor text during loading screens. One of the tips mentions that in light of increasing IMC numbers in the Frontier, the Frontier Militia is specifically training up more commanders to assist in the fight. This presumes that what is presented in Titanfall Assault is the platform by which field commanders do their work or otherwise are trained in the commanding role. It should be mentioned that the game does not specify which faction you as a commander are part of, if any.
