Due for release on March 11th, 2014 on the Xbox One, Titanfall is a first person shooter from Respawn Entertainment and EA that will try to jumpstart the next-gen system with its revolutionary combat and game modes.
There are always issues in the launches of next generation systems. Between delays in launch titles, bugs galore in games or really just a lack of wow factor and killer apps, there really has been few games that have caught the attention of gamers. Microsoft and EA aim to change that with the long-awaited Titanfall. With the amount of attention being given to this game with ads and midnight launches, one would think this was the new Call of Duty in terms of excitement and support, which Xbox One is counting on. Lagging in the hardware sales race behind Sony’s Playstation 4, the Xbox One needs to catch a break and an edge over the more sophisticated and graphically advanced Sony console. Titanfall aims to tilt the balance towards them and more.
Titanfall is the creation from former Call of Duty developers that went on to launch Respawn Entertainment. With this game, they wanted to revolutionize the somewhat stagnant gameplay of first-person shooters. Of course, one clear solution is to have robots, or Titans as they are referred to in the game, drop from the skies so you can climb in them and wreak havoc across the board.
However, the other solution to stagnant gameplay is unique movements across each map. Instead of having to dodge, run, strafe, duck and dodge through different levels, the developers added a new twist by giving your character a jet pack. Yes, my friends, a fully-functioning jet pack that lets you bound to new heights across the map or in other instances, wall climb and make different sorts of acrobatic moves throughout the game to gain the advantage of your unsuspecting foes.
The game mechanics allow for each user to customize their playing style as they can be a quick wall jumper that zooms through the map to take on their enemies with agility and speed, or cloak themselves in the shadows and stalk their prey without giving their position away. Either way, this looks to be a beautiful game that should be fun to play, to say the least.
Below are a few videos that show off the gameplay and game modes so you can take a gander for yourselves on what you’ll be dropping into tomorrow.
I’m not going to lie, I’m super excited for this game to come out, especially considering the Xbox One game library has been lacking a great exclusive. Titanfall will be released on March 11th, 2014 for the Xbox One while the Xbox 360 version will be hitting stores on March 25th, 2014. These are exclusive titles to Microsoft so unless you own an Xbox One, 360 or a PC, you will be out of luck for awhile.
