Ankama appears to be quite busy these days with regards to developing mobile games. Currently the company has a minimum of three games that we know of within the works for Android, a couple of which we have already discussed including WAKFU Raiders. We are able to now give a fourth game to this list called Tactile Wars which just soft launched today onto Google Play in select regions.
[Update: Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 7:23am PST] While farmville continues to be out for four approximately days now, many people do not have access to it yet. Ankama has released a list of regions currently in a position to connect to the game. At this time if you reside in the usa, Europe, Russia, Middle East, Africa, and Oceania, you should be able to download and play Tactile Wars. No word as to whether it’ll arrive for other regions later on.
[Update: Friday, August 14th – 11:35 AM, PST] Ankama has had Tactile Wars out of soft launch. The sport has become open to download within the Google Play Store free of charge. We’ve played it a little, so if you’re a fan of strategy games, this may be up your alley. The sport does include in-app purchases, should you choose to take benefit of them. There has been some reviews uploaded towards the Play Store that mention connectivity issues with the sport. If you choose to download it, tell us what your experience is when booting up. The hyperlinks to download the sport can be found at the end of this short article.
Tactile Wars is really a completely new IP from Ankama, therefore it isn’t according to currently existing IPs like WAKFU or DOFUS just like their other games currently in development. This specific game blends arcade and strategy gameplay together for a bit more of the faster-paced strategy game. Within this game players will be taking on the role like a General of their army, which happens to be comprised of mini-soldier pigments. All your troops, as with your enemy troops, are armed with paint guns his or her primary weapon.
The objective of farmville is to conquer your opponents territories. Each team has their very own color and in to take over your opponents territories, you’ll need to cover them up with your color of paint. In order to do this, players can form squads with their troops to be able to control where they go and just what they are doing. You’ll have a variety of troop types available such as infantry, mines, tanks, and turrets, with also to be able to recruit mercenaries. You will also be able to change your troops (via researching new technologies) and ally along with other players.
Right now Tactile Wars can be obtained for experience Android in Nz, Australia, Ireland, and Finland. However a global release is slated later on come july 1st. Not sure yet on pricing, although there is a good chance it will be free to play with optional IAPs. Meanwhile, you can check out the game in action with the teaser trailer below in addition to additional screenshots.
