Titanfall is one of the more anticipated games that will launch this year, and it’s definitely a candidate for Game of the Year. The first-person shooter will be an online only game that has players piloting mechs in a war-torn planet.
The action will be fast-paced, including abilities to run on walls and hijack mechs, and extended periods between player deaths.
The game is being described by Respawn as bringing “scale, verticality, and story” to first-person shooter multiplayer gaming, while incorporating elements traditionally found in single-player campaigns.
Titanfall will hit Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on March 11, 2014 in North America and March 13, 2014 in Europe and Australia.
Also, don’t forget there’s a Titanfall Collector’s Edition that’s available for $249.99 and it includes includes “an exclusive collectible 18-inch hand-crafted titan statue with diorama and battery-powered LED lighting, a full-size art book featuring more than 190 pages of rare concept art, and an exclusive full-size schematic poster of the Atlas titan.”
Since a beta of the game is in certification, we should expect an announcement very soon.
