Girls Frontline: Exilium will be running its first closed beta test in China, slated for June 2021. Exilium is set 10 years after the events of the first game, with its prequel being Code Name Bakery. Making the move to 3D, the gameplay is pretty reminiscent of titles like X-COM, with units deployed on starting tiles, positioning, cover and the like.
You will command units in a 3D space on a 2D grid, with enemy silhouettes rendered through the 3D terrain when the need arises. The 3D models are plenty detailed already, and it’s possible to alter their looks. Units also have type effectiveness, which will be displayed along with predicted hit rate and damage. You can reposition to improve hit rate too.
Your units can gain Morale after defeating enemies to improve their attributes. You can reduce enemy morale, and when theirs hits zero, they will become stunned and all attacks will become effective against them. Even if attacks miss, it can still deal chip damage. As is usually the case, your units will possess both passive and active skills.
A more thorough rundown of the camera and other features can be found on Gamepress.
There is the possibility of the game being available on PC, as all these systems combined could be taxing for most devices, but we probably won’t know until official release. The closed beta announcement for Exilium also notes it’s the first one, so we’ll just stay tuned for more information.
