Girl’s Frontline Storyline
“Girls’ Frontline” is set in an alternate timeline on Earth in the 2060s. The consequences of a military accident that led to widespread disease, as well as the recent end of a nuclear war, have massively depopulated the planet, rendered much of the surface uninhabitable, and once great nations have become shadows of their former selves.
Androids used as workers and in combat have become an important facet of life. Easily replicable androids known as Tactical Dolls (T-Dolls) are used by private military companies on the front lines of numerous bush wars.
In the game, the player slips into the role of a fresh commander of a PMC who commands T-Dolls in the fight against a new AI threat.
