Frontline Tactics is the ideal game for today’s player who often has multiple gaming devices and extremely limited time to play,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director of Meridian4.  “The turn-based nature of the game, coupled with its multiplatform support lets you play whenever and wherever you want.”

The year is 2025 and the world still runs on oil A small splinter military group led by a madman named Akhali Muhamar threatens to take over the oil-rich nation of Fahrahn.  The country is a large oil supplier to the Western world and national interests are threatened.  An elite group of soldiers are called in to lead a proactive attempt to quell the uprising and attempt to maintain peace through military action before it turns into full scale war.

Frontline Tactics lets players command a modern, elite fighting unit over varied missions from defending and controlling a location or asset, to all-out elimination and survival.  Outfit your soldiers with modern weapons, armor and equipment and give them the skills to succeed on the battlefield.  Play against a ruthless and cunning AI in single player or simultaneously battle it out in multiplayer in versus or co-op modes over multiple platforms.
