At this year’s E3 event Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts officially detailed Titanfall 2. The new installment to the popular franchise will release worldwide on Friday, October 28, 2016 for Xbox One, Origin for PC, and PlayStation 4. The highly-anticipated first person shooter is set to build on the foundation Respawn established with the first Titanfall, offering fast, fluid, and fun gameplay between Pilots and Titans.
“With the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first person shooter,” said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise. “With Titanfall 2, we’re 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.”
This new installment will include a single player mode, Titanfall 2 will deliver “a crafted experience” according to the company, one that explores the unique bond “between man and machine”. Playable offline, the single player campaign in Titanfall 2 will let fans step out onto The Frontier as a Militia rifleman with aspirations of becoming an elite Pilot. In the modes players will be stranded behind enemy lines and facing overwhelming odds. There players must team up with a veteran Titan to uphold a mission they were never meant to carry out.
In multiplayer, Respawn is continuing to evolve their best-in-class gameplay to provide a more robust experience that delivers expanded depth and variety that includes six new Titans, deeper Pilot abilities, more customization options, and a robust progression system that is sure to satisfy fans. Fans wanting to hit The Frontier first on October 28 can pre-order Titanfall 2. For those looking to have the ability to customize every Titan day one, the Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition offers instant access to exclusive Warpaints and Nose Arts, two camouflages, and more.
