During their E3 press conference, Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts officially announced that Titanfall 2 will drop worldwide on October 28th, 2016. We know that Titanfall 2 will release on Xbox One, PC, and for the first time for the franchise, will be launching on PlayStation 4. The highly-anticipated first-person shooter is set to build on the foundation that Respawn established with the original Titanfall focusing on fast, fluid, and fun gameplay between Pilots and Titans.
âWith the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first-person shooter,â said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise. With Titanfall 2, weâre building on that foundation by introducing a bespoke single player campaign backed by a deeper multiplayer experience that together will once again push the shooter genre forward.â
In the single-player campaign, which can be played offline,Â we are told that Titanfall 2Â will deliver a crafted experience that explores the unique bond between Pilot and Titan. The single player campaign inÂ Titanfall 2Â will let fans step out onto the Frontier as a Militia rifleman (unlike the original) with aspirations of becoming an elite Pilot. You soon find yourself facing overwhelming odds while stranded behind enemy lines. Players must team up with a veteran Titan to complete a mission they were never meant to carry out. The single player trailer was leaked prior to the E3 conference and shows what looks to be a cinematic, relationship-driven narrative. The lack of any single player story and the half-hearted attempt at an inconsequential online campaign was one of the major complaints with the original Titanfall.
In multiplayer, Respawn is continuing to evolve the Titanfall gameplay to provide a more robust experience that delivers expanded depth and variety that includes a whopping six new Titans, more customisation options, deeper Pilot abilities and a robust progression system that is looking likely to satisfy fans.
Gamers that want to experience The Frontier first on October 28 can pre-orderÂ Titanfall 2 at Titanfall.com. For those looking to have the ability to customise every Titan day one, the Titanfall 2Â Deluxe Edition offers instant access to exclusive Warpaints and Nose Arts, two camouflages, and more.
