Rocket League is a game with very little randomness. It’s mostly about the physics of rocket-powered cars slamming into giant balls. But during today’s Rocket League championship series matches, the one aspect of randomness in the game made a surprise appearance: respawning.
A few hours into Titanfall 2’s unexpectedly fantastic single-player campaign, there’s a mission where everything pivots. The rules change, the story expands, and the game shifts into high gear. That mission is called “Effects and Cause,” and it is really good.
Mega-publisher EA has purchased a new studio—Respawn, the developer of Titanfall. The news comes just weeks after the publisher shuttered Visceral Games.
After scrapping card-based strategy game Titanfall: Frontline and starting from scratch, Respawn and Vince Zampella’s mobile studio Particle City finally have a mobile mech combat game on their hands in the form of Titanfall: Assault, available today on iOS and Android.
Titanfall 2 may have faded from the public consciousness since last fall, but the developers at Respawn have continued to add free stuff to their already excellent first-person shooter. The most recent addition, which landed earlier this week on PC and consoles, adds a four-player cooperative horde mode. It’s a good…
It’s a tradition as old as... well, probably a few years, anyway. A game’s beta drops, and PC players crack it open in hopes of suckling out sweet morsels of information. Respawn’s seen it happen, and they’ve decided it’s just not worth the risk with Titanfall 2.
From what I’ve seen of Titanfall 2 so far it could be much more entertaining than the first game. $250 replica helmet Vanguard Edition entertaining? Eh. It’s only $199 with Amazon Prime, though. That’s like getting a free hat, with lights and everything.
Clearly not busy enough with Titanfall 2, the developers at Respawn are working with EA on a new Star Wars game, they announced today.
What wondrous timing! Just as a new, mech-free game mode is announced for Titanfall, we get a statue that's 75 percent pilot, 25 percent debris and zero percent giant killer robot.
Titanfall's latest update will add a new mode that gives players the option of fighting without those pesky giant robots getting in the way.
Sure would be useful if the giant robots in Respawn's hit game could pick you up and throw you at enemies, right?
Titanfall has been out for a little while now, and it's settled into a normal rhythm for an online shooter. There are some new maps, some new modes, and a lot of people who have gotten very good at it. But the question remains: How many people who were playing in March are still playing now?
Titanfall's getting three new maps with its next DLC pack. Called Frontier's Edge, the add-on costs $10 as a standalone. There's no date given as to when it'll be hitting Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360.
Via EA UK, here's the first trailer for Titanfall's "Expedition" downloadable content, which is slated for release this month on Xbox One and PC. (The 360 version won't be out until June.)
Here's the topdown view of one of the maps that's coming soon to Titanfall as part of a DLC map pack called Expedition. This one's called War Games, designed after the tutorial mission simulator from the game.
Before Titanfall was Titanfall, the mech-heavy shooter went through years of development hell. Crippled by a complicated lawsuit back in 2010, the folks behind the newly-formed studio Respawn Entertainment worried for a long time that they might never actually make a game.
It's a general rule that most constantly-connnected competitive shooters will evolve and change a whole lot in their lifetimes. Titanfall's the newest king of the hill in FPSland and the hit game is no exception. There's a new patch inbound for the hit game and it's reconfiguring a lot of stuff. Among other things,…
I'll admit it: I assumed that the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall would be hot garbage, especially once we found out that Respawn—the studio behind the PC and Xbox One versions—hadn't actually made it.
I think I know what my favorite moment in Titanfall is.
