Gaming: Play 'Titanfall: Assault' on Your iPhone Before It's Released Worldwide
Fans of Titanfall now have a great alternative to play on their iPhones whenever they're out and about. Titanfall: Assault has arrived as a soft launch for iOS devices. A hybrid between card-based and real-time strategy genres, the game will pit you against other players with some mech-on-mech action to dominate the battlefield.
Taking some cues from Clash Royale, each unit that's deployed in Titanfall: Assault will automatically fight its way through opposing forces to accomplish its objectives and ultimately win you points. Card collection is an important factor in the game, as this is the way you collect units, such as Titan mechs, their pilots, soldiers, and various offensive and defensive weapons and burn cards that help you in a pinch. The cards you obtain through gameplay can also be leveled up to make them even more effective in combat.
As of now, Titanfall: Assault is still technically in development as a soft launch, which means it's only officially available from the iOS App Store in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. But if you'd like to try out Titanfall: Assault right now despite the region lock, keep reading to find out how to install and play this game.
Titanfall: Assault will run on all iOS devices that were released in 2013 or later, as long as they're running iOS 9 or higher. Since the game is only available in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, you'll need to create an Apple ID that's based in one of those countries before you can download the game. We highly recommend choosing the Philippines, as a majority of games get soft launched there.
Creating an App Store login for a different country is easy to do — just sign up for a new Apple ID using a valid email account and a realistic home address for the country you're going to spoof. When you're done there, simply sign into the spoofed account on your iOS device.

Once you've set up a Philippines-based App Store account, the rest of the process will work just the same as installing any other game. So head to the App Store and search for Titanfall: Assault and download it, or tap the following link from your iOS device.
Please note that Titanfall: Assault is still in development, so users may experience a few bugs here and there. We tested the game on an iPhone 6 running iOS 10.2, and an iPad Pro on 10.3.1, and found nothing out of the ordinary in terms of bugs and other potential issues.
