Glu Mobile teases gameplay from Frontline Commando


Look no further than Glu Mobile for the new king of freemium, action-packed games for Android. Hot on the heels of Blood & Glory, Contract Killer: Zombie, and Big Time Gangsta, which all achieved over 1 million downloads, Glu has just announced that a new shooter called Frontline Commando is headed to Android.

Frontline Commando is a 3rd person shooter that looks to deliver console quality visuals. In the teaser trailer that was released today we can see the hero using an arsenal of weapons to take down all kinds of enemies, including helicopters and jeeps. The duck and cover action sort of reminds me of Shadowgun, which played surprisingly well on a tablet.

Highlights of Frontline Commando include:

  • SEE AND FEEL THE ACTION – The ultimate 3rd person shooter with stunning console quality visuals, precise controls, advanced physics and destructibles. Jump in the heat of battle and push your iOS device to the limit.
  • COMPLETE DEADLY MISSIONS – Emerge from destructible cover points to take down helicopters, jeeps and heavily defended enemy bases. Fight off increasingly difficult waves of enemies over a variety of combat mission types.
  • COMMAND AN ARSENAL OF DEADLY WEAPONS – Take to the frontline with an artillery of assault rifles, sniper rifles, shotguns, rocket launchers, med kits, armor and more.

Look for Frontline Commando to hit the Android Market soon.

  • eioous

    Wow how awesome is that. For get playing xbox I’m gonna play my tablet. lol.

    • MJM128

      Although it’s quite impressive, I think i’d rather play a 360 still.

  • Osby Nowlin

    Game looks pretty sweet. I may need to upgrade my OG EVO. Maybe I’ll win a tablet…..

    • LukeT32

      Im in the same boat with my DROID.

  • James Conley

    man that looks sweet

  • ArticulateFool

    Wow, this looks pretty dang good!!!!

    Hope it runs buttery smooth on my new Galaxy Nexus.

  • stenzor

    So many great games…so little time!


    that looks insane !

  • WallaceD

    Holy crap, that looks amazing!

    I love CK:Z, so I’ll probably be picking this one up.

  • myandroid99

    looks really nice

  • Michael Ian

    Want. It’s great to see Android finally seeing some quality games. I do hate freemiums though.

    • Deeds

      I agree just let me pay for an app outright

  • Alex Pena

    Look alright but this really wouldn’t be fun at all unless it had some kind of controller support, because the virtual joystick and D-pad suck!

    • Louis A

      Really, so they have to opt to add controller support? I thought controller support is added on all tegra games or big name games by default. Yah that will really suck!!

  • Thomas Biard

    I would love this game! Hopefully a broader spectrum of Bluetooth controllers are released so gameplay like this can be used to its full potential and still be affordable for the casual user

  • Alex Pena

    Looks alright but this really wouldn’t be fun at all unless it had some kind of controller support, because the virtual joystick and D-pad suck!

    • erikiksaz

      Shadowgun works pretty well with the virtual controls, so I’m hopeful about this one.

      Yay for more game devs onboard!

  • erikiksaz

    Pretty impressive graphics considering that most of the gameplay looks to be in open environments!

  • CJ LaFleur

    Seeing all of these games makes me want my transformer prime much more than i already did. This will be amazing. I LOVE 3rd person shooters. Who needs a console. I find myself using much less of my ps3, and much more of my tablet.

  • donger

    more shooters please.

  • zyphbear

    It looks like pretty good graphics quality, If it can connect via controller on a tablet or high end device like the SGS2 or Nexus and still plays well, it will grow in popularity quickly!

  • damambt

    This probably the biggest incentive for picking up that Asus Transformer Prime. Watch your heart out CoD!

    • damambt

      DAMN PREDICTIVE TEXT 😡 😖 !!!!!!!!!!!

  • Donald Williams

    Wow. May have the wife return the ps3 she bought me for xmas if games continue to come out like this.

    Yes I cheated and found her hiding spot. Shhhhh

    • lxgeorge

      You getting her to return it without her knowing that you know would be a feat!

      • Matthew Reynolds


  • Kenneth Ohonba

    This looks really good. It reminds me of Shadowgun with the gameplay style

  • Fabio R

    some idea when its coming out?

    • Omar Santiago


  • luis maldonado

    im really starting to believe that we will have console quality games on mobile in no time!

  • Kevin Amundson

    Nice. I liked their Big Game Hunter and Contract Killer. This appears to be taken to a better level of game play! Now I just need to win a tablet in the giveaway. :)

    • Adryan maldonado

      That looks pretty amazing. Nuff said

  • Jorge Eslava

    I’m downloading this as soon as it comes out.

  • Hall Lo

    Woah its really stunning for a tablet game! Looks so awesome!

  • Lars K. Rønes

    Looks like a nice game, but I just really really dislike GLU Mobile as a developer.. While these Freemium games are ok in their own sense, making them near impossible to play without spending $$$ on them is not so cool and breaks the game for me.. The other thing is that all the Glu Mobile games I’ve tried keeps on running in the background when I’m NOT playing, and even runs on startup when I havent even played at all! This is NOT cool, and I have consistently uninstalled all the Glu Mobile games because of this.. There is no point or no good reason what so ever for a game to keep on running in the background when not playing!

    • Danny Calderon

      If you have a Rooted device, you can download gamechi2 and give yourself free credits and money for in game purchases, i would rather buy the game for $5 than have to buy credits to buy more ammo or guns and xp points

  • lokidokie


  • Zhi Hao

    How am I going to study next year?

  • Richard Yarrell

    See what happens when you don’t have a proper launch for a device. Verizon better launch this device now..

    • squiddy20

      As I’ve said before… Or what? What could little insignificant you do to a multi BILLION dollar company to possibly spur them into releasing the Galaxy Nexus? Here’s your answer: NOTHING.
      Shut up a stop whining like a little bitch.

  • Wojciech ZiÄ™tek

    Nice game, can i play it using usb mouse or pad?

  • Danny Calderon

    This game looks awesome!

  • protozeloz

    Glad we have new game devs :D

  • honourbound68

    glu has become one of the best developers out there. love their games.

  • ramenchef

    Wow, the graphics look pretty sweet.

  • dandroid4g

    That looks AMAZING!

  • Matthew Reynolds

    That game looks sick. Can’t wait to play it

  • desean

    Looks good. I wonder how it compares to Shadow Gun :)

  • Victor Feitosa

    Looks good but somehow GLU looks like its a bit out of nice ideas. Graphics arent their strongest part either…It could have been better.

  • Joshua Melling

    Graphics seem weak.

  • Sean the Electrofreak

    I’m getting a wireless controller here in a few days… virtual controls drive me nuts.

  • Marc’us H.

    Kind of impressed, I wonder if a Tegra 3 will make it look any different?

    • Andrew Huff

      No it won’t. It’ll perform better and probably have a higher Frames-per-second rendering which will maybe make the animation look smoother but it won’t graphically look any different.

  • thechad

    Cool looking game!

  • Chris Lewis

    looks amazing

  • humidity

    Looks awesome!

  • titaniumwombat

    These always look cool but the controls are getting too complex for a touchscreen imho. If I can link up a controller, excellent. If not, I have a console and a PC that are better built to handle this caliber of game…

  • zippyioa

    Looks great. Just hope it’s as good to play!

  • Rob Vermeij

    I prefer the looks of Shadowgun, this looks just a little bit too “blocky”

  • Tom Murphy

    Looks great.

  • HoLfElDeR

    It looks so good, i hope the game will be relised soon

  • WallaceD

    Yeah, I keep checking the Market… no dice.

    Hopefully “soon” doesn’t mean a couple months.

  • gherea

    Looks very nice! I hope we can download soon.

  • Trinhbo

    Wow! I’m glad the overall quality of games is rapidly improving on Android!

  • Danerisms

    This game looks amazing! I really see the Android platform becoming the preferred gaming platform especially with the Tegra chipset.

  • Louis A

    Dayum, looks nice. Common transformer prime and galaxy nexus. Net to start enjoying those with game plays like this.

  • Omar Santiago

    Wow those graphics look pretty sick for a mobile device! Here’s to ps3 graphic games on android in no time!!

  • Omar Santiago
