Mech assault: how Titanfall could be Call of Duty's doom on Xbox One [OXM UK]

OXM UK writes: "Remember the Bubble Shield from Halo 3? Remember how dramatically it altered the chemistry of Bungie's multiplayer sandbox, allowing skilled Spartans to throw down fleeting tactical beachheads, overlaying their own terrain dynamics on the map architecture? That's the kind of wholesale change-up Respawn's aiming for with the Titans, the 24 feet-high posterboys of Xbox One's flagship shooter." (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

As much as im little excited to see this on my PC And i would love someone to dethrone call of blasted duty.
I just dont think this will do it looks very differnt but that said we need more info too.

People seem to forget that this is going to be on 360 also and if anything I think the 360 will be more of a factor in terms of user base as opposed to the XB1.
Geezus  +   956d ago
^ true... but titanfall on xbox 360 might as well be a different game its even made by a different developer... i think to really experience what titanfall is all about it needs to be played on a pc or xbox One.

that being said titanfall will be a good game but it wont beat out Cod i do think Battlefield 4 will dethrone CoD this year though.

" i do think Battlefield 4 will dethrone CoD this year though"

not a chance, the number of people playing TDM on BO 2 is more than the entire bf3 game

to be honest i dont think anyone will need to dethrone call of duty this gen, reasons being is FPS were "it" game of this gen just like adventure/action games were for the ps2 gen, i think this gen is going to be more of a sandbox open world gen. Second the game graphically looks bland and so does the gameplay, still cant get over the fact that in the demo 4 soldiers made a door basically explode running from a what? I doubt people will want to pay for something that isn't trying to do anything new especially since we are in a new gen. Old tricks wont work.

It will be funny to read and hear the comments of COD hardcore fans though.

Will they worships COD Ghosts and hate on TitanFall ?

How could they hate on the creators of the franchise they worship ?

I think it will be enough for most COD fans to wake up and be like" wow...what have I been missing"..

Playing only one FPS game, you miss out on the entire world of gaming around you.

I was there for a bit..

At this point it can be this or Battlefield 4.
RememberThe357  +   956d ago
I'm far more interested in Destiny and BF4 than this. I guess I'm not into big ass robots unless their Japanese.
Shadonic  +   956d ago
I only like the robots, would rather have an attack on titan game with 5v5 multiplayer
CrossingEden  +   955d ago
that is the most biased and racist thing i've ever heard

Thats Toonami for ya.

CoD has a bigger audience and open to more platforms. While I do think EA will bring Titan Fall to more platforms(just look at what happen to Mass Effect) it still have a long ways to go before it dethrones CoD.
UNGR  +   956d ago
EA bought Bioware, that's a different story. Here Microsoft paid to have it console exclusive. No idea as to how long it will be. May be permanent, or just a few years, time will tell.
CrossingEden  +   955d ago
why people are pretending like microsoft is the only game that has third party exclusives by paying for them is beyond me, EVERY COMPANY PAYS FOR EXCLUSIVITY, seriously fanboys, get this through your thick heads

It Won't Dethrone CoD (At Least, Not In It's Current State)
Call of Duty is available on a wider range of platforms, a wider range of gamers. This means that it will almost certainly sell better. It will also appeal to more people by the simple fact that Titanfall will have a whole range of people that it can't appeal to at all to begin with.

If Titanfall wants to have a real chance at dethroning CoD, then it will have to be available on ALL platforms. This will likely happen anyway, considering that it's EA we're talking about here, but still.

Titanfall looks cool but nothing extraordinary.

BF4 is CODs biggest competition imo. Titan Fall may become like Gears but has no chance dethroning COD as an exclusive. Won't even dethrone Halo.
Qrphe  +   956d ago
Only a multiplat could pull that off and Titanfall won't be that for at least a year. Destiny or BF4 have the best chance of doing so.
310dodo  +   956d ago
I dont think so.
This will def have alot of players, but COD has millions playing everyday.

COD is like Google now.
Part of life.

LOL, I think I just read an advertisement article.
Popoffboy187718  +   956d ago
They want this to be the next cod with the hype this last gen looking game.cod had impress a lot of gamers with modern warfare. When they debut modern warfare at VGA it was stunning back then.this doesn't scream must buy or AAA in any manner!!!! Maybe fun but not a must buy by any means!!!

It's the same game but with robots and jet packs.

Might as well call it Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4
Supermax  +   955d ago
Titanfall will take a small chunk away once people see bf4 with 32 vs 32 on consoles running 60 fps and 1080 p that will take a chunk away as well.destiny will also play a part once people see that along with mmo qualitys they find a multiplayer aspect in it similar to world of war crafts battlegrounds.lets not forget about planetside 2 a free to play massive battle first person shooter hitting ps4,and killzone shadow fall.this very well could be the beginning of the end of call of duty. Halo and gears also will be showing up,gears had the most innovative multiplayer with judgments overrun mode,and I believe it will be comeing out with unreal engine 4.

There is always room for more then one great multiplayer experience on a platform.
Belking  +   955d ago
As long as the platform is PS4. That's the way they think around here. It's great that PS4 gets destiny but bad that xbox gets Titan Fall.
Mikeyy  +   955d ago
Titanfall has zero chance at dethroning COD without the PS4.

half the COD user base is over there.
Supermax  +   955d ago
That's very interesting that you would say half the cod players play on ps3.

@ No_Limit

That is definitely a nice selection. Can't wait for Xbox One.
