Crytek's free-to-play mobile game The Collectables is now available for iOS, with an Android version coming soon. It's a third-person tactical combat, collectible card game (CCG) hybrid, and marks the first time Crytek's CRYENGINE has been used for a mobile game.
Players control a squad of four soldiers against a ruthless army known only as "The Enemy". Using a collectible card system, players can upgrade their soldiers or unlock new weapons and abilities, such as laying down turrets or launching artillery strikes. The narration in the official launch trailer below is very tongue-in-cheek, so don't expect some elaborate story – The Collectables seems to be all about putting you right into the action.
As a fan of other mobile hybrid-CCGs, WB's Injustice: Gods Among Us and Square Enix's Deadman's Cross, I have a feeling this will be another great, addicting time-waster. In fact, from the looks of it, it may very well turn out to be the best of the three.
