MP1st - With the Titanfall hype train at full speed, the question on everyone’s mind is, ‘will Titanfall kill Call of Duty?’
ATM not really why you might ask because its only availalble on the xbox and pc. now if TF2 comes out on the ps4,ps3,xbox 360, one and the PC then it might stand a chance of taking the COD crown
In my opinion suits at EA must be kicking themselves in the nuts for make it exclusive to Bone. How long have they been trying to kick Cod off the number 1 spot? How many millions did they spend to make and market games like bf and moh but failed to throw off COD? And now when they had a real shot, they sold it out to msft platforms? Lol!
No it won't beat Call of Duty because it's only on Xbox/PC. But I don't think EA are kicking themselves at all. The money they got upfront from MS I am sure was very large. Not to mention being on Xbox and PC, all the DLC that will come with it, and they hype has been huge. Trust me, EA won't be regretting making a ton of money.
I agree. One of the reasons games like Battlefield in my opinion will not overthrow COD is because they lack local multiplayer. A lot of COD buyers, believe it or not, are not always online. I know quite a few people who buy call of duty and never go online. Some because they don't have internet and some because they prefer local multiplayer. No split screen is one of the reasons I think Titanfall (and others) will never trump the CODs or Halos. If you're a casual player it can be frustrating going online and getting shot as soon as you respawn. Sometimes you want to play with your buds locally instead. My wife and I play local with bots all the time and have a blast. Then when she goes online she gets massacred and frustrated lol. Titianfall is online only so I can imagine people getting frustrated already.
True say. Yeah it needs to be on all platforms to stand a chance. For the moment however, COD seems like its committing seppuku on itself, albeit less honourably. It's a shame that TF isn't on PS4, simply because it would be really interesting to see what impact it has on COD sales. Zampella getting revenge on Activision would be a sight for sore eyes.
I'm not defending COD in anyway but I don't honestly think Titanfall will ever make a dent in CODs sales, as much as i'd like to see COD decrowned Battlefield couldn't even do it, Titanfall doesn't stand a chance, when the next COD game is out (November 2014 no doubt) the majority of Titanfall players will switch back over Titanfall will do VERY well, it's a new game for a console that doesn't have many new games, the same reason Thief is selling well despite the game having rather average reviews, if Thief was a PS3/360 game it wouldn't of sold very well at all
I have no doubt in my mind that Titanfall is a great game. If it was on PS4 then I would love to play it but to be quite honest the amount of hype surrounding this online only game is ridiculous especially for a new IP. The truth is if this was a PS only game then the media wouldn't be hyping it up to be the savior of all gamers. Do I think it's a COD killer? No because many games came before it trying to over throw COD and every one of them failed. Do I think it has the potential to be? That depends on EA and weather they see a cash deal with MS more profitable than a multiplatform release of the next game.
Why do people keep making it sound bad that it's a multiplayer only game? Sorry but this game will have more replay value and be played longer than Uncharted or The Last of Us. Single player games with a linear story don't have a big replay value, unless it's replaying each level to find some hidden item or unlock something. And don't try to tell me Uncharted MP was the games selling point. What do you think keeps COD, BF, Halo, KZ, or Gears of War popular for years? It's def not the single player. Sure, Halo 1 had an epic single player, but people played the heck out of multiplayer and that was before online gaming. Going back to the Golden Eye days, anyone that remembers that game remembers the awesome multiplayer games, no one mentions single player. The hype is ridiculous because the game is. I can't remember the last time I was this excited for a game. I hope more games go the MP only route so they can focus all their efforts and the systems potential on making MP the best it can be.
@Pontiac Both Uncharted and the last of Us have multiplayer and even though the last of us MP isn't great, Uncharteds multiplayer is awesome and offered me 3 months of playtime. Its MP wasn't a selling point for me because the experience of the single player offered me a much greater experience than playing the same 15 maps over and over again killing random people online. A single player matters because sometimes you just want to relax and enjoy a good story. At least with games like KZ I can enjoy a good story and then take my skills online to play an awesome MP game.
Exactly, Titanfall has absolutely zero chance of 'killing' COD as long as it is exculisve.
It wont kill off COD for the simple fact COD can be played at a competitive level. Titanfall not so much.
Making it exclusive gave it a lot of attention. However it limits it's market share so in no chance will it steal COD's crown. Let's see how the series develops and it may end up doing so. As of now I just don't see it. It's new so it has to develop just like COD did before becoming the franchise that it became.
To me, Titanfall will grab everyones attention for say 3 Months, Like call of duty does, It wont replace it, Maybe it will dominate the Spring season where as COD dominates the Winter season,
I don't know man, I think titanfall will pull a lot of COD users away on the xbox platform. COD is killing COD, Titanfall is what FPS multiplayer needs to move in a better direction.
I cannot see where Titanfall can go with a sequel as it is multiplayer based it cant bring anything new to the table with future installments, this is just my attention. I enjoyed Titanfalls Beta quite alot, and I am bored of COD, I like to view it as this. Titanfall is effectively a spinoff of COD.
I expect a COD teaser trailer shortly. They aren't going to go quietly into the night. Even though Ghosts is hated on it still sold very well. Does that mean people will take a chance again? We shall see. Titanfall does look pretty cool but we will see if it catches fire and becomes a must have.
No, titanfall will not kill call of duty
It won't kill Call of Duty but it's going to force Activision to step up their game. It takes the addictive gun play of COD and turns it on it's head with the parkour mechanics and throws in Titans for good measure.. simply put it's the evolution of what they started with Call of Duty 4. If activision think they can keep adding a fresh coat of paint after TF, they'll be in for a rude awakening.
Titanfall cannot dominate on a marginal multi media console only. When TF2 with Bonus Definitive Orignal Maps is released on PS4 then it will dominate! Titanfall 1080p on PS4 FTW
"Titanfall cannot dominate on a marginal multi media console only." -_-' You're trying too hard
Nope just Xbox one ;)
No it won't!!! If it was on all systems like call of duty than maybe! But there are the millions of playstation owners and Xbox owners that play call of duty!
Admittedly, I'm not really a fan of FPS, although I'll try one now and again, but a lot of my Male friends are buying Titanfall on 360 or PC. Maybe Titanfall should have been totally exclusive to Xbox One, I don't know?
I agree if microsoft wanted to sell their Xbox one it should have been limited to it. My option is to play on PC which I have or pick up a 360 cheaper than a one. In terms of the question I don't think titanfall will outsell COD since the latter has a much larger customer base, also I have a theory that COD is still more accessible due to no parkour mechanics. Played the beta and didn't have a problem but I am a mirror's edge fan..
Nope. The millions of more players who bought PS4s and are Call of Duty fans will be unaffected by this altogether.
Merrin says NOT A CHANCE IN HE'LL in fact it will be the opposite, the new next gen call of duty will feature much improved visuals, campaign, coop, and the popular multiplayer call of duty next, will be the most popular title in 2014, it's hard to imagine people will skip COD to continue playing titanfall
Hopefully. COD needs to die or be completely reborn.
If Zampella decides to release the sequels in March like Titanfall is, the series will never compete with CoD for sales and crown because they wont overlap. It will be good for fans of the FPS genre because now they will have two games to play at half a year intervals. Instead of being forced to play CoD year round because there were no better alternatives. But it all depends on TF's replay value. If its replay is similiar to like the halo, and bf series then no it wont take anything away from cod.
In reality, no it won't in my opinion. If it had released on all the formats CoD is available on then it might make a dent in CoD's sales but CoD is a juggernaut and even established brands like Battlefield and Medal of Honour have not supplanted it so a brand new franchise was always going to struggle against it. In the alternate reality of Microsoft's PR machine where XBOX fanboys skip hand in hand with the gaming press that take Microsoft's coin then yes of course Titanfall is the second coming, it will end world hunger, bring peace to the planet and will launch with a free puppy or kitten. Over the last month N4G has been a glowing example of how a good PR machine can elevate the status of a game like Titanfall. Its good, I liked the PC beta but in my opinion its certainly not great and I can't see it stealing time away from Battlefield or Call of Duty for me.
No. CoD it is a military FPS and offline story mode, Titanfall sci-fi FPS and the only a online mode. They represent two different styles. Titanfall a new and successful FPS will be a game, but not destroy it CoD series. BF, CoD military FPS, Titanfall, Halo, Destiny sci-fi FPS.
When they start releasing it in the same launch window on all formats then yes it will. COD Ghost was the most boring game I have played since cod went modern. I jumped in with the classic COD MW and now it's just a zzzzzzz If respawn play it right then yes it will but they have made their first mistake by going with a single platform lol
Hard to say. Like everyone is pointing to it being on only 2 platforms will not let it compete with the sales of cod but what about gameplay and content? It might be able to beat it there. I'm calling it now it will be the highest rated xbox one game. Not saying much since games are limited but reviews help pick up momentum.
COD killed itself.
The sellings this is not proven, Ghosts was successful, much more were sold from him than from BF fourth part, though the style same, and vainly the much "hater's", Ghosts not bad military FPS, and not ugly or crap. Mainly the next-gen variant. And the CoD will be growing.
I don't get it actually, I understand competitiveness, but all these MP FPS games are just the same thing over a over again. TF has no real campaign and therefore no online co-op. At least COD has a campaign. Believe it or not people do play the COD campaigns and even buy the game to play the campaign. TF sales will not reflect SP purchases.
you cant kill cod coz its already dead.... i loved cod and i still play it love it but they have nothing new to offer from time to time i fill like they are just releasing map pack instead of a new fresh idea and there i have started to fill like a cow that they are milking me to the death... on the other hand titanfall it haves new and fresh ideas and fast paste combat just like i like it
Probably not, at the moment no matter how 'bad' a CoD game is, it's bound to run smoothly and be fun to play as always. Where Titanfall fails here, is it's inconsistent fun, the over abundance of titans and bots on a map which will put off those wanting fast paced killing people, not bots and spending 30 rockets to down a titan. That's why CoD is successful in the first place, look at BF4, still riddled with bugs and unplayable at times.
"Where Titanfall fails here, is it's inconsistent fun, the over abundance of titans and bots on a map which will put off those wanting fast paced killing people, not bots and spending 30 rockets to down a titan" You dont have the slightest clue. Play it first, eh?
I played the alpha and beta for over 40 hours, and have given extensive impressions good and bad on reddit. I'm exaggerating a little on the titan kill perhaps, but the game just is far from the be all end all of fun. Get off the bandwagon, eh?
"Get off the bandwagon, eh?" LMAO.. I Played it before most people on the beta. My opinion is based of plenty experience with the game hands on. Dont waste your last bubble in this thread on another crappy comeback. Go get some fresh air. Take your dog for a walk or something. You must be tired from all that posting on Reddit.
what? The bots actually make it more fast paced/action packed. Also, when does titanfall fall not run "smoothly"? I have participated in more online betas then I can count and nothing ran as smooth as titanfall. Even released games run less smoothly then the beta.
"fast paced killing people, not bots" A vital part of my quote there, regarding your comment. There is nothing more dissatisfying than killing bots with the same AI as Duke Nukem Forever. I also never said the game wouldn't run smoothly, I was rectifying a reason COD is successful, it will always be the same quick matches, Titanfall isn't that, so the audience may not adapt and move with it. That's the point.
not really a good title - should read: "will titanfall kill CoD on xbox/pc?" it can't "kill" anything on systems the game doesn't release on.
Killzone and Resistance are the COD killers /s While xboxONE owners will play the next great exclusive on their console, PS4 games will have anough time to comment on N4G :) This fanboyzm here gets poor...
Ironic that you should mention fanboyism with that comment of yours. Also ironic that "the next great exclusive" isn't even exclusive to the XB1, while the next one on PS4- releasing not too long after Titanfall- will be available nowhere else. Not sure when Killzone or Resistance has EVER been looked at as able or attempting to kill Call of Duty. That's not exactly something any exclusive can attempt, even a pretend exclusive like Titanfall.
Titan Fall Future Warfare 4
another stupid ass article. This site is really going down hill fast. COD is the biggest franchise in the industry. How in the hell can a game thats only being released on 3 systems kill it. Damn! who approves these stupid ass articles. PS-I don't even play COD
It will def be a good game to challenge COD thrown and why is that? Being exclusive means that the developer hasn't had to split time between multiple platforms they have one platform to make sure the game runs good on.
You can keep Titanfall , COD has proven itself as the dominate shooter and that isn't going to change. COD Ghost on the PS4 was the definitive version anyway and that's something Xbone owners will never get. Titanfall on PS4 would have blown away the Xbone version but EA decided to go the epic fail route.
nop, cod ghost in frame-rate its better on xbox one, than ps4. But the game is a shit in all platforms, 1080p dont save the game :) And Cod ghost on Xbox One sell better than ps4 :) ps4 its a definitive version? not really
I think It will finish off COD as far as xbox and PC players are concerned. At this point in time I have no doubt in my mind about that. I knew it from the first time I played it last year. and during the beta some of my friends got to experience the game I have been yapping on about for some time now, during our mp shenanigans on other games.... Now they are the ones who wont shut up about it, while we play the waiting game (in other words we play COD,BF and forza to pass the time..while talking far too much about titanfall) People have lost interest in COD anyways, so titanfalls arrival is right on time. It WILL be more popular, on XB1 and PC. It has just the right mix of speed, intensity of combat and skill based gameplay. It REALLY hits the mark and playing it is enough to prove it to anybody. Trust me, you wont be able to go back to COD, afterwards. Cant wait for next friday. :)
No. It's going to be a great game though. Destiny is multi-plat and the pre-orders are insanely high. THAT is the big one. Call of Duty will never be a great as it was when the former Infinity Ward was around. As far as I'm concerned, Activision is the Call of Duty killer. Shame they'll see money from Destiny, too.
Nothing but cod can take down cod.
Every year a new game comes around, and people ask the same question: "Will it kill COD". It never happen though.
It won't out sell cod. On a side note, its going to interesting to see how it sells compared to halo 5.
We will see in couple of days but I think people will more play TF than CoD:G ( 42.000 people online tops)
No but this dislike will help kill your site. On a side note I think both these games are overhyped
It WAS probably the best contender for the crown, but exclusivity killed that chance. Now it has as much hate as love and million gamers have already told themselves that the game is nothing special and found every excuse not to like the game. It may be fanboyish and an exercise in self-deception but it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy nonetheless.
I wish something would, COD is so popular that it's creeping into other games. Depressingly sci fi shooters do not have the same mass appeal as something that is "closer to reality", so you won't have everyone and their 5 year old sister playing Titanfall.
if you have issues with COD influence, TF isn't going to help that, really.
Going to be interesting when a true next gen COD is unveiled and then releases later this year.
It will not kill COD and it will not kill new contender Destiny.
It's not multiplatform, so no.
