Aww. Look at the auto-Titans trying their best to protect their pilot—even if it means destroying themselves in the process. It's the result of lackluster artificial intelligence. But it's also kind of endearing, don't you think? They're trying their best!
During their PAX East panel today, Respawn announced that they're working on new modes for Titanfall. These updates, in addition to other micro updates that they've already been working on, will be completely free to owners of the game.
At the PAX East Titanfall panel today, Respawn Entertainment announced Titanfall Expedition, a paid, campaign-continuing map pack coming to the Xbox and PC shooter.
Originally scheduled for release next week, the Xbox 360 version of Respawn Entertainment's mech shooter has been pushed back to April 8 (April 11 in Europe) to give port developer Bluepoint Games time to make it better.
Those who have played it already know this, but for those who haven't, be aware that Titanfall's "campaign" isn't really deserving of the name.
So that's why theTitan classes are called Ogre, Stryder and Atlas! Lore's here to summarize Titanfall's background story with a huge amount of references.
From the marketing to the name of the game itself, Titanfall pitches itself as a game defined by its use of giant combat mechs. And indeed, in your first few hours with the game, that'll be all you really pay attention to.
Back in January, there were rumours that Microsoft would be releasing a special Titanfall-branded Xbox One console. That machine never actually appeared. At least, it never did for consumers.
Titanfall will get both free and paid downloadable content, and the latter will be available through a season pass subscription, Respawn Entertainment's co-founder said yesterday in an interview with GameSpot.
If you haven't played Titanfall yourself yet, you may be one of those wondering: what the hell is with all the hype around that game? It's just another shooter, right? Not quite. It's better.
Never mind the fact it's a beta, or that it's being thrown open to anyone with an internet connection, some people wanted to get into the Titanfall beta so bad they were willing to pay for it.
The Titanfall beta opened up to players on Xbox One yesterday evening, allowing anyone to join without using a beta key. The PC beta will become open soon, added Respawn Entertainment's Vincent Zampella, "maybe" even today.
The internet is abuzz with Titanfall today as the embargo lifts on preview events, flooding the infoverse with fresh takes on Respawn's upcoming Xbox and PC mech shooter. We couldn't make the event, so instead we've rounded-up the best new looks our colleagues in the gaming press have to offer.
There's a closed alpha of Titanfall going on. It's closed, which means people aren't supposed to be uploading video of it, but you know, the internet.
Hammond Robotics is the fictious contractor building those ballbreaking mechs in Titanfall, and they'd like to pat themselves on the back for the success of their latest project, the Ogre, which we saw for the first time at tonight's VGX.
Titanfall is a Microsoft exclusive. Like, a proper one, in that it won't ever be coming to the PlayStation. That's news for gamers, but until recently it was also news to one of the guys...running the company making the game.
Respawn's big Xbox One exclusive Titanfall is destined to have a line of official action figures. Those mechs, they're great. Until they actually arrive, though, fans are making do with their own stuff, like this incredible custom piece from Japanese builder nammkkyys.
