Titanfall: how Respawn's small innovations will bring big changes | CVG

CVG: "In multplayer, hordes of players around the world kill one another with nary a concern for pacing or drama, and all in the name of XP and leaderboard prestige. Conversely, single-player FPSs are all about keeping the player on a tight leash: studios want to make the player feel something. There is meant to be purpose and context for every headshot you accrue.

As a raw multiplayer FPS, Titanfall looks promising. Respawn weren't ready to let us play it at E3, but we witnessed a closed 7v7 tournament that served to highlight both the large and subtle ways Titanfall tampers with the format." (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Thanks Respawn we will enjoy it. Can't wait to see the smaller mechs and different Titan types. Will they be wild variations of mechs like Lost Planet? They did say there would be different classes of pilots and titans.

Don't worry....they'll be singing praises for it when it gets announced for the PS4. Then it will be the best thing since sliced brea .

How do you know they are PS4 trolls.... This game looks awesome and I can only hope it comes to PS4 but this game alone wont convince me to buy a XBox

Keep it.. Same s***, different toilet. First person shooters are over-saturated to a ridiculous degree.. Not surprising the Yanks are all over a first person, multiplayer only game.

Im a sony fanboy, and there's been tons of mech games throughout gaming history. It's so funny how none of them have ever received the hype that an online only mech game after so many awesome mech games were made? I think its only the fanboys that will care about this game. Oh and quit acting like this game is only on xbox one. Its coming on the 360 and pc as well. I personally love mech games. Zone of the Enders comes to mind. Having mechs in an online only game doesn't even make sense?!

Some could be fascinated by a western armored suit FPS game with two types of gameplay with equal attention to quality.

Maybe it's the next gen action on screen that is more solid and faster on a large scale who knows. The game look very immersive with its crazy physics on foot and in the Mechs.

Wonder if there will be perks with things like the jetpacks etc.

I think the game looks crazy... I'm sure I won't wait for it to hit the PS4. I'm going to have to get it on PC. The one game for X1 that I covet. Great thing is I have a kick ass PC so I won't have to wait long. Hopefully its released the same time as X1

I've always been a Sony guy, although not to the point of fanboyism - I've just owned their consoles. This game looks great, and I'm also a guy who doesn't like FPS games!

It looks like it'll be a nice change from your standard team deathmatch, and with jetpacks and wallrunning (and of course mechs) it looks pretty innovative and fun.

People will downvote anything it seems.

Seems cool, tho I want to see more to make a call on the "innovation" factor. Almost like the new technology is going to drive FPS to new levels.

I'm still looking forward to BF4 the most. 64 players is finally possible, but can't wait to see what comes up next.

Definitely going to get a X1 for this game. Not sure yet if I'll get a X1 at launch cause i'm still to see launch titles for both system before both consoles come out, but i'll have on just in time for Titanfall.

With all the praise, guess its safe to say I'm the only one this game didn't impress. Looked like CoD with jet packs and a couple mechs, can't see what all the hype is about.
Wizziokid  +   734d ago
It didn't wow me either, I'll still probably buy it for PC though since I'm not getting an x1
elhebbo16  +   734d ago
besides the jumping what other way is this game gonna innovate? I've already seen mech's in several other FPS game. Battlefield 2142, Halo 4, Killzone 3 to name a few.
Thomper  +   734d ago
I guess we will have to wait and see. How much more can you do with a FPS that makes it "innovative"??
Wizziokid  +   734d ago
well cod has dogs so maybe, Just maybe, Cats ;)
Supermax  +   734d ago
There will be different classes of titans as well as pilots,confirmed on gametrailers.day on for me.
seepamann  +   734d ago
This Game Really Look very Great Without any dought this game will be mega hit
ShowGun901  +   734d ago
this game will be commercially successfull, but really how many shooters do we need... im more interested in ryse and infamous ss than this, everybody seems to forget the reason mw1 was so successful, because they changed SO much...


create a class
RPG elements

MW1 really took a bare bones run n gunner and made it something you could burn MONTHS on, just to get one more lvl, one more challenge... but now that everyones copied that to death, something better needs to be added... but they're not, its just one little improvement and they're calling it "innovative"

COD ghosts "we have dogs! pretty dogs!"
titanfall "we have mechs... and jetpacks!"

bet money it will have the same leveling system as MW1 (and every single FPS since), unlocking system, challenges etc... im not bashing THIS game in particular (i bet its the same in killzone also), but to throw around the word "innovative" just rubs me the wrong way...

Destiny looks much more innovative, and its STILL very similar LOL

Im calling it now best online game for 2014.
levian  +   734d ago
One thing that I think this game does right - it's a multiplayer game, and it focuses solely on the multiplayer for the best possible product and experience. It's something other famous FPS games should take a hint from.

Not just FPS games though. If you want a great single player game, don't tack on multiplayer - your single player will suffer for it. Similarly if you want to make a great multiplayer game, don't bother with the single player.
Hercules189  +   734d ago
with some games i do agree with you, but halo, gears and killzone make sp and mp great. The only way it should be avoided is if it is just tacked on without a thought
blanket14  +   734d ago
hey cant I play with mechs in killzone 3? I bet killzobe shadow fall has them....... yhiw looks like another call of duty and its coming to the ps4 later on I can wait.
urwifeminder  +   734d ago
Game will be nice if I can manage to stop playing forza 5 long enough to play it .
Martywren  +   733d ago
