OXCGN’s Titanfall preview- A ‘new generation’ shooter


"Even though Titanfall was leaked days priors to E3 courtesy of leaked GameInformer magazine scans there was still a huge buzz surrounding what Respawn Entertainment had in store for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC gamers around the world.

Titanfall is of course a First Person Shooter, but what sets it apart from other shooters on the market is the interplay between Pilots (Humans) and Titans (large mechs)."

Wasn't impressed with this at first. But now that I 'get it' a bit more, it is impressive

Sounds like he really enjoyed his time with the game, I especially loved this:

"As to not make the game too one sided in favor of the Pilots, Titans are just as agile and nimble as Pilots. They can run and strafe as they please. Titans’ weaponry is much more impressive than the Pilots, from the usual 40MM mini-gun to the more impressive Arc Canon which shoots a string of lightning which can disable rival Titans or gruesomely combust other Pilots. Titans also have what is called an Vortex Blocker. The Vortex Blocker allows Titans, like Neo in The Matrix,to catch bullets or rockets and shoot them back at an enemy. Each time you use the blocker there is a limit and it needs to cool-down. In tight situation where your Titan is a bout to explode it could be extremely useful. As Titans are as nimble as Pilots, any unsuspecting enemy down below can easily be trampled, so to counter this Pilots, if caught running around in the open, can hitch a ride on a friendly Titan. What we get once this happens is a slew of more gameplay options.Pilots can jump off friendly Titans, jetpack a short distance on top of an enemy Titan. Here they can rip open a hatch start shooting, jump off and watch as the Titan explodes. Alternatively if you’re in a Titan and it’s nearing the end of its life, you’ll be prompted to eject, being thrust a good hundred metres into the sky."

"Enemies can shoot you down in this instance so you are extremely vulnerable. In the gameplay demo you’ll see a Titan charge up his cannon and blow up an enemy Pilot who has just ejected from his Titan.Titans unfortunately cannot capture any points of interest on the battlefield so Pilots ultimately have to decide whether they’ll leave it up to their team mates to do or go at it themselves.Luckily Titans won’t stay dormant until your return, they’ll activate ‘Guard Mode’ and move around the battlefield doing some damage. You can then locate it and request it to stand still whilst you run to it, hop in, and continue the carnage.

"Watching Pilots v Pilots, Titan v Titan or Pilots v Titans is a thing of beauty. Both have their own set of pros and cons and it never seemed like one type of character outweighed the other.Those that are adept in reading the battlefield, following the map and know how to use certain weapons to their advantage will have a lot of fun in Titanfall."

-Wow, just sounds like alot of fun, cant wait to see for myself how it all plays out.

tbh its going to be like call of duty. a new type of gameplay will be fun for the first couple of months and then become generic but easy for everyone to be good at (well atleast have moments of killstreaks to feel good) and then will become milked whether or not it will be on the ps4 i will probably not even get it. if it does come kz sf, the division, and maybe bf4 will beat this game, and when i try out ps2 which looks insane with the variety of gameplay it offers i might not even remember the name titanfall

Fast mechs...This game looks like it will be insanity. Very fast...maybe too fast for me!

I really, really like this. Hope I get to play it this year!

A parkour shooter at its best. Still not a bleep on my radar. I will have to have some hands on experience for a better understanding of what this game is capable of.

MikeyDucati11966d ago

I haven't heard much about that game since it came out. Community is still going strong, ya know?


I can't help but feel like they ripped off hawken,maybe it's just me.
