Crytek's partnership with DeNA has finally borne fruit in the form of The Collectables, a new iOS tactical strategy game powered by the famed CryENGINE.
If you're wondering about the title, it's a play on both Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables and the game's collectible card game nature. Players will assemble a squad of hardened military types who must battle foes using a traditional, turn-based interface, though they'll be aided in combat by upgrades that appear in the form of collectible cards. The real coup for the game though, is the inclusion of CryENGINE technology, which renders The Collectables a "visually stunning and explosive gameplay experience that pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved on mobile devices," according to Crytek.
Though currently exclusive to iOS, The Collectables will soon grace Android devices as well. Those eager for that incarnation of the strategy game can register for information on its release, and by doing so will earn an exclusive, in-game character.
