Today SEGA has revealed Total War: ELYSIUM, an upcoming collectible card game for mobile and PC, and it's clearly themed around Creative Assembly's Total War strategy series. Today also marks the unveiling of a closed beta test for Android users, as well as the release of a trailer that provides a first look at gameplay footage. As you would expect, Total War: ELYSIUM will offer tactical card-based gameplay, where players will strive to build decks out of the game's many cards, all so that they can rule with an iron fist over the battlefield.

So without further ado, here are 25 classic games remade for Android with a modern design.
Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is a new collection-based strategy RPG that's coming to Android this summer, and it's already available on the Play Store for pre-registration. Player's will take command of the Night's Watch to defend Westeros by collecting notable characters that will be useful in the game's strategic battles. The story takes place a few decades before the timeline of the books and TV show, which means this upcoming release will serve as a prequel of sorts.
Five months in, Stadia is, ever slowly, packing its library with more and more quality titles. With the release of Doom Eternal earlier this month, the platform hit a major milestone: its first major AAA game to launch day-and-date with PC and consoles. Should you be lacking the local hardware horsepower to bust demon skulls but you're reluctant to stream a game as notoriously fast-paced as Doom, I'm happy to report that, if your network is up to snuff, Eternal runs wonderfully on Google's cloud platform. It's also an intense and immensely gratifying experience.
War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius was first revealed in 2019 during a Square Enix E3 showcase, where we learned that the game would indeed be coming to the West with an English translation in tow. Well, it looks like we are finally nearing the official release for this Final-Fantasy-theme strategy RPG since the title just landed on the Play Store for pre-registration.
Early this morning, Might & Magic: Chess Royale popped up on the Google Play Store for pre-registration, and upon closer inspection, it would appear that this is a title designed to offer large 100-player clashes in the latest take on the auto battle genre, also known as auto chess. Clearly, Ubisoft is keen to get in on the growing auto chess trend, and so has slapped a Might & Magic skin on top of its upcoming auto battler to squeeze out as much nostalgia from the brand as possible.
Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is an upcoming mobile strategy game that clearly contains a Game of Thrones skin, and it recently entered into a beta testing phase in Australia and New Zealand. Luckily, this beta also appears to be accessible to the US, so I've installed the game so that I can go hands-on with the title to report on exactly what it has to offer.
Triniti Interactive Studios is celebrating its 10th anniversary by re-releasing a handful of its older titles sans any in-app purchases. The studio has also removed any costs to its IAPs from many of its existing titles as well, though fans have pointed out that players can no longer go online in these games since all multiplayer aspects have been removed, most likely to keep costs down. Still, it's nice to see a mobile studio giving back for once by re-releasing a handful of older titles for free.
