En Masse Entertainment, publisher of hit Steam MMORPG title TERA, has recently announced the upcoming launch of Pocket Platoons. Set to release on August 27th for iOS and other mobile platforms across North America and Europe, players build bases of operations and control customized armies in a WWII-themed environment. Players must choose between the Allies and Axis factions, build your base, strengthen your army, and then lead your troops into battle.
Pocket Platoons sports single-player skirmishes, PvP battles, as well as 5v5 coalition combat. In total there’s over 300 campaign stages, hundreds of progression quests, dozens of tactical units, and a wide variety of combat modes to master. Rather than using luck-based battle systems and pay-to-win micro-transactions, we’re told that Pocket Platoons rewards players based on their skills, understanding of battlefield positioning, and combat tactics.
“Pocket Platoons is a little game with a lot of heart. It has so much to offer with its amazing depth, wide range of units and variety of modes,” said Chris Lee, En Masse Entertainment CEO. “In this game, troop position really matters, which will appeal to players looking for fantastic turn-based combat strategy. Core gamers will gravitate to this gem of a game for their mobile devices.”
Pocket Platoons will be free to download starting August 27th and we’ll keep you updated if anything changes as always.
