Call of Duty: Ghosts or Titanfall – Which game will take the crown for best multiplayer game?

Activision’s Call of Duty franchise has been a hit ever since Infinity Ward came out with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Perhaps the series did well beyond Activision’s expectations on the consoles where the series’ dominates the online multiplayer. Call of Duty has always been sold like hot cakes not just for its single-player campaign but for its fun and immersive multiplayer component as well.

Titanfall is a brand new IP developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA, which is going to be console-exclusive to Xbox platform; Xbox One and Xbox 360, and will also see the release on the PC. Titanfall is a multiplayer-only title with single-player elements. First shown at Microsoft’s E3 2013 press-conference, Titanfall has received critical acclaim for its step forward in multiplayer gaming and has been called Microsoft’s “killer app” for the Xbox One. (Activision, Call of Duty: Ghosts, EA, Infinity Ward, PC, Respawn Entertainment, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The lack of a single player is going to hurt Titanfall more than a lot of people think. A lot of folks just play CoD single player on Veteran and mess around a little with the multiplayer and then never play it again. I know I have done that with every CoD game.

Titanfall doesn't appeal to me because it is multiplayer only and I am just not good enough at multiplayer fps games to be bothered with Titanfall.

No doubt
jackdaddy  +   649d ago
Just seen the new PS4 footage, and really people......This game is the SAME DAMN GAME as every year!
Even in 1080p it still looks the same, plays the same, it's all the same!

Battlefield 4, say no more.

As far as bringing something new to the table, it's Titanfall. as far as most played multiplayer it will probably be COD, it's on all platforms you can think of.

The only thing i can think of is running on walls that they're bringing nrw to the table.

LOL you mean the cloud ai who stood in bunches just waiting for me to shoot them? Yeah thats a game changer. I wasn't impressed by Titanfall and i consider myself a big mech fan. Maybe the 2 and a half hour wait killed it for me since the 10 min session wasn't long at all.
Funantic1  +   649d ago
Lol. Battlefield 4? Maybe Battlefield 5. Titanfall March 11!
Beastforlifenoob  +   649d ago
Battlefield 4 or KZ:SF
KZ:SF will definately win overall (single+multi) but battlefield 4 will most likely have the edge in multiplayer but less of an edge on SP

I'm a big fan of BF4 but titanfall seems like a game I've been waiting for. A game where you can really see the difference between a skilled player and an average joe, just like in Halo. Can't wait to try it out!
MuhammadJA  +   649d ago
both bf4 & cod are generic. at least titanfall added crazy and fun elements.
lastofgen  +   649d ago
From what I played at gamescom, definitely titanfall.
It may not sell as much, but it's got my support.
KrisButtar  +   649d ago
I'm going to say that Ghosts will be champ simply because they have split screen gameplay. They can play with their friends while visiting using split screen and then they can play with their friends while home online. Thats the reason everyone I know skips over BF and most other shooters not because COD is great or awesome it just has couch multiplayer options and the others don't.

If TitanFall has split screen, I can see my some of my friends being interested in it.
-Alpha  +   649d ago
Split-screen is really nice. Surprised that Titanfall doesn't have it.

I'm also really bummed that Killzone didn't support it, after having Killzone 3 have it implemented bare minimally.

I'll still vote for Titanfall here though.
KrisButtar  +   649d ago
I haven't read or seen that TitanFall doesn't have split screen, so I'm not ruling it out yet.

We play Halo and COD and you would think that if another company would want to try and copy their success they would copy and add the split screen options at the least.

We actually cancelled our pre-orders of KZ SF because their was no local multiplayer when we read it from the Blog. We are very disappointed because we wanted something new.
MEGANE  +   649d ago
Well we had the same game for 6 years with different maps and a few perks... i think TitanFall will be fresh and innovative... its time for something different.... to bad is not happening on PS4.... yet ;)
Ketzicorn  +   649d ago
I'm going PS4 but Ghosts looks like trash it will sell well because of the COD name but no doubt Titanfall will be the better multiplayer game.
timmyp53  +   649d ago
I hope titanfall because duty needs to decline.
lonz358  +   649d ago
Out of all the good multiplayer games coming out, they pick these two only?
MysticStrummer  +   649d ago

Niether Shadowfall will.

BeardedPriest  +   649d ago
Exactly. That new Story Trailer says it all.
Studio-YaMi  +   649d ago
No it won't,which sucks really because Killzone:Shadow Fall actually LOOKS next gen & is promising with the new things they added to Killzone MP.

People will go with the more popular franchise,like COD & since Titan Fall is basically the same as COD,it will have the COD treatment between it's fans.

At least you get to have a jet-pack & a mech in Titan Fall which DOES seem fun to me.
BallsEye  +   649d ago
not sure if serious....o right..n4g
capjacksparrow  +   649d ago
I'm getting Killzone Shadow Fall (which looks amazing). I'll let these two games have their own battle out of my general area. I may pick up TitanFall when it hits PS4 though, so if I have to choose between the two, I would go TitanFall.
kratos17  +   649d ago
Im rooting for Titan Fall.

A new IP always has me excited.

calvincrack  +   649d ago
Well we know Call of Duty is awesome but stopped being as awesome after MW2. And Titanfall is essentially the long awaited true sequel to MW2, the spiritual successor to the greatest shooters of all time. There is no doubt that Titanfall takes the crowm. As for sales numbers, different story
venom06  +   649d ago
CoD will have the sales... BATTLEFIELD 4 WILL BE THE BETTER QUALITY this year... Titanfall will be good..
staticdash22  +   649d ago
IMO Shadow Fall

watch the dislikes flood in because I happen to prefer killzone over the more hyped releases. Que the boring, plain & generic insults without any kind of intellectual & articulate reasoning into their thoughts.

Just let the fanboys fight it out. There is no shooter king. The king is whatever game you happen to prefer.

CoD hands down Titanfall still needs to prove itself;)
TheFutureIsBlue  +   649d ago
If Titanfall does "win", I'm hoping they will actually change it up every game and not rehash the same crap like cod does. As much imagination they put into this I think we can expect a lot from this franchise though.
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   649d ago
How much can a shooting game sequel really change?

Well after so many games I'd hope for an increase in graphics which cod has failed to do. Look at Uncharted 1 compared to Uncharted 3. It is almost unreal. Gameplay wise just add more variety to everything and try to keep things balanced.
WeAreLegion  +   649d ago
As far as sales go, Ghosts will beat Titanfall, obviously. Battlefield 4 will be riding its coat tails, however. Titanfall will be a much better game than Ghosts, but still.

I'm mostly excited for Killzone:SF and Battlefield 4. Titanfall will be fun, but I may only whip it out at LAN parties. Destiny looks incredible though. And why is no one talking about PlanetSide 2? That's one of the best shooters out there!
Chrisgamerguy  +   649d ago
Titanfall will destroy cod and battlefield. Those games r old news now. Titanfall is something fresh and new and fresh and therefore will attract more people to purchase it.

Titan fall will only lose in sales because people will blindly buy cod again although in my opinion titan fall is the true next-gen cod.As for MP exp i vote for TF
hiredhelp  +   649d ago
We need a change people so my bets on titan fall.. But lets be honist money talks if there was ever a GOTY between these 2 many choose COD same old story. Not saying we would but reviewers ect.
Sadist3  +   649d ago
Battlefield 4 will
Deathdeliverer  +   649d ago
I would definitely say that Titan Fall will be better than COD. I am in the camp that its doing the same things the previous years, like a NBA or NFL game. In my opinion, COD should be replaced with Battlefield 4 if we are talking Xbox only. Its not like Titan Fall has reinvented the wheel. If anyone has played Starhawk, it's like that. Like a next gen Starhawk successor. Only if a Titan could transform and begin air combat. And on the PS4 side, Killzone isn't breaking down new walls either. Well except for the grapple. That is pretty new for a FPS because with the open areas, that one gameplay addition can change how people go into combat, or avoid confrontations all together. Not exactly mind blowing but hey.... Titan Fall and Killzone are nice starters for this gen. I will have them both day one. My real hopes are for Destiny at the moment. It has already shown me plenty of new and fresh ideas like the dynamic battles that change all the time. You my never see that dragon alien that me and my buddies fought on route 16 because he may spawn there once every 2 weeks with rare drops. (MMO flavor done right in a FPS YUM!)And the weapon customization is off the charts. Anyhoo, that's my take.
LoneWolf019  +   639d ago
CoD and Battlefield while similar are still different. I like BF but there is only so much I can take when I get killed by a tank, mbt, boat, chopper, or jet all the damn time. Didn't matter to much on 360 because there weren't that many vehicles but next gen and pc. They are every where, and if you are on retarded team that doesn't know how to use classes to do stuff it gets stale very fast. Least in CoD I know I stand a chance against the enemy because we are always on foot. So yeah to similar kind of games but totally different. That is why we need CoD and BF to exist and not just have cod replaced with bf
Deathdeliverer  +   639d ago
I agree with your opinion. I also see that I worded my stuff wrong. When I said replace COD I meant instead of "which will have the best multiplayer COD or Titan Fall" , switch Battlefield with COD in that scenario. You have made me rethink my view on COD with that one paragraph. Being on a team that wants to do it's own thing sucks in battlefield. When you are getting pummeled it's BRUTAL, but in COD you do feel like you can make a difference. Obviously that's due to it being a smaller setting, but it's a plus all the same. I still prefer those battlefield wars (when it's a close game), but sometimes you want a small skirmish too which is what COD offers. I'm going to get COD with my battlefield or shortly after thanks to you!
unjust75  +   640d ago
Here is a thought that just crossed my mind concerning TitanFall. Being that it was made by ex-Infinty Ward developers. I have to wonder if it will play so much like call COD. So much so that most players will just forget about the Titan's and just round around like COD multiplayer. If that is the case than whats the point. The game still looks awesome though.
