Crytek: mobile game developer?
Not exactly, but the German company best known for its CryEngine products and games like “Crysis,” Homefront,” and “Ryse: Son of Rome” is indeed dipping its toes into the mobile market as well. As announced today, Crytek is joining forces with mobile games heavyweight DeNA to release “The Collectables,” a free-to-play action game that will take advantage of CryEngine technology and hit iOS and Android through the Mobage platform in 2014.
“The Collectables” is described as blending “action and tactics as players lead a squad of unconventional soldiers on do-or-die missions around the globe.” Players will be able to collect (naturally) a variety of different soldiers with upgradable weapons and abilities. Anyone who registers ahead of time at www.thecollectables.com can snag an exclusive version of the in-game character RELOAD with limited edition gear.
“DeNA offers unparalleled experience in the mobile gaming space, and we’re excited to be collaborating with their team to deliver The Collectables to players,” Paha Schulz, Director of Business Development, Games-as-a-Service at Crytek, said in a statement announcing the game.
The guess here is that “The Expendables” was an inspiration, but you can decide for yourself by watching the first trailer below:
