Titanfall was a huge hit at the VGX Awards this year, the game is from Respawn Entertainment and has attracted attention since it first debuted earlier this year. The game may not be ready for release until March 11, 2014 in North America (March 14 in the UK) but the Xbox One exclusive is sure to move some units this holiday season.
The game will also launch for the Xbox 360 and PC and has already won “80 coveted awards from critics around the world,” according to the publisher. The game offers a first-person action gameplay featuring elite assault pilots and agile, heavily-armored, 24-foot titans. Crafted by one of the co-creators of Call of Duty and other key designers behind the Call of Duty franchise, Titanfall delivers a brand-new online experience that combines fluid, fast-paced multiplayer action with heroic, set-piece moments found in traditional campaign modes.
“Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Titanfall,” said Vince Zampella, a Co-Creator of Call of Duty and Co-Founder of Respawn Entertainment. “The feedback we’re getting from fans around the world is fueling our team as we head towards March and motivating us to deliver an experience that lives up to the hype.”
Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war, Titanfall drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia. The action is rapid and varied – featuring parkour-style wall running, massive double jumps and the ability to hijack titans. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.
All of the new gameplay announced comes at a very opportune time for the Xbox One, as new consoles have just opened up on popular online retailers like Amazon. They have been mostly sold-out and unavailable since the launch of the console back in November, but if you’re quick you can pick up one below.
