Microsoft: Titanfall Will Set A MP Look/Feel/Gameplay Bar So High, It'll Take A Long Time To Match

Microsoft: Titanfall Will Set A MP Look/Feel/Gameplay Bar So High, It'll Take A Long Time To Match.

The story is too old to be commented.
ShugaCane1806d ago

Destiny looks way more interesting to me. And I say "looks", because obviously I didn't play either of them, so the hell I know ? But I'm much more attracted to Destiny's universe than that of TF, which TO ME, "looks" like COD with mechas.

AceBlazer131806d ago

Sad that you have to stress on the 'looks' to avoid being attacked from certain individuals.

Completely agree though, TF looks so basic. Destiny looks like it has more potential.

ShugaCane1806d ago

I'll be attacked anyway lol. But yes, you summed it up. Destiny has more soul and personality, based on the trailers. It's an online game, but developers cared to build a world from scratch, with its lore.

ZodTheRipper1806d ago

Of course MS needs to hype them but these guys came up with CoD so ...yeah.
Can't wait for Destiny though, RPG >>> FPS.

Aggesan1805d ago


I have a PC that's slightly less powerful than my PS4 and slightly more powerful than the Xbox One. I still doubt I'll be playing Titanfall though. Never cared for CoD or CoD clones because of their cramped environments and twitch based gameplay.

lolCHILLbro1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Basic is what made COD4 so good though, then all those perks and that messed up COD, these guys made COD4 and it will be a good MP game

OrangePowerz1805d ago


Yes they came up with CoD bit that was already a carbon copy of MoH games they made previously.

Septic1805d ago

Titanfall is a competitive arena based fps though so I don't know why you guys are drawing comparisons with Destiny, which is more of a mmo/ explorative co-op experience.

Titanfall's direct competitors are the likes of COD, Battlefield, Halo etc. In that regard, it might just be the best in its class.

Destiny is in a whole different class really. In fact, youre probably better off comparing Destiny to The Division even if it is a TPS.

4Sh0w1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Destiny will surely be great, I'll get both of these on my Xbox One. Excuse me though if I see a a whole lot of envy from sony guys hidden behind typical "I dont care about Titanfall" type posts. I didn't care about KZ SF so you won't find me following the game trying to downplay any good press. So really I'll just take the comments from the usual suspects above or below with a huge grain of salt, pfft now trying to promote a multiplat game on a Titanfall thread they never miss an opportunity, its clearly in their nature to always be so negative about anything xbox related and wave pom poms whenever a sony drops a average screenshot of any ps4 exclusive.

If preorder sales hold true Xbox One version is killing pc and 360. 360 will sell given the huge fanbase but the fact it's not being directly dev'd by Respawn and a bit delayed hurts it. As for pc truth is despite some always trying to hype pc versions, history shows the pc versions always sell considerably less than its xbox countetpart making Xbox One version literally where most gamers will be getting their Titanfall fix from daily. Titanfall definitely "looks" like alot of fun and to add there has been awards and a avalanche of PRAISE FROM MEDIA AND TONS OF GAMES WHO HAVE ACTUALLY PLAYED TITANFALL vs Destiny who is a ways off and hasn't had hands on or very much shown of the games.

DeadlyFire1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

I have to agree. Destiny does look more like a real game people can get into. Titanfall's only appeal is CoD + Vertical + Botkillstreak mech drop. Not saying that is all bad though CoD has long held the crown over Quake for top Arena FPS shooter. I personally get tired of Arena FPS games, but even Battlefield wants to have some arena combat in its games with smaller game types, and maps. I like Open range maps like what Halo has offered in past titles. Destiny may be MMOFPS with a story element, but even Planetside 2 has some arena combat plans. Go here @3:19 = Competitive multiplayer is in Destiny.

I believe honestly alot of sleeper FPS titles could innovate multiplayer as well. We still don't have a clear picture of everything that is releasing in 2014 just yet.

GTgamer1805d ago

I dare anyone to look at TF and take out the mechs and the people running on walls and tell me what TF looks and plays like and its not even funny how the game is basically COD and you all know this So I don't see it setting a Bar in my opinion.

dedicatedtogamers1805d ago

Please stop with all of the artificial hype. My goodness. If Titanfall is so dang good, then it will prove itself. The more I hear about this game, the less excited I become because so much of the hype feels manufactured.

I think Titanfall looks okay. But what does it do better than its competitors? I'm sure it will be a well-polished game, but the constant praising it as the Second Coming is beyond silly. If this game was coming to PS3 and 360 and PC (and wasn't being used as a next-gen "system seller" ) I guarantee you the hype would be 1/10th what it is right now.

OrangePowerz1805d ago


Why do you think the 360 version is delayed in the first place? I don't buy it that they need to polish the game on the 360 and that's the cause of the delay. I think they delayed it because the rumours that it's not far of the X1 version are true and they just want to sell more consoles.

MysticStrummer1805d ago

I don't know what they mean by "look" but that old engine won't be setting any graphical bars, and the gameplay/feel appears to be sci fi CoD so there's not much bar setting going on in those categories either. I'm sure the game will be fun for CoD fans, which is a lot of people after all so it will be successful across three platforms, but MS is just in PR mode here.

UncleGermrod1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

basic yes, but i think it could be just enough to shake up a winning formula. all the gameplay i see looks so fluid and it just seems like a really fun game.

destiny deff has my interest as seems a lot like halo, but the way you interact with the world is a much more ambitious idea.

truefan11805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Who are we kidding here this is n4g, nothing positive about XB1 can be said without being downplayed in some way. I guarantee if Destiny was an XB1 exclusive it would be called Halo on another planet, the same way Titanfall was called COD with Mechs after the announcement of it being a Microsoft exclusive. PS bringing Destiny up doesn't hurt XB1 fans, because we will be able to play both. Titanfall will be great and you all need to get over your jealousy, you all supposedly have gaming pc's anyway right. Lol this is an article about Titanfall and all the ps4 fans brought up Destiny, it's getting pathetic.

Sayai jin1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

@Dedicated - Artificial hype? You could throw that connotation on any game that has a lot of positive news. MS seems excited, but where/who did the majority of good press about this game come from? During E3 where it took home many awards.. Also, the majority of people who have played the game have rave reviews and are super excited for this game. Why is it a bad thing if a company is happy about an upcoming game and there excited about the potential.

Those of us who have not played it do not know how it will turn out, but from the looks of everything and the reviews from those who play it; it seems like it will be a very good game. How it will do against it's competitors? Not sure and I could care less. I never worried about that kind of stuff. I'll leave that to the companies that develop games and make console. I never thought how will a Mario game compete against the next Sonic, Halo vs KZ, etc.

Also, thats what companies do...promote (hype if you want) their games especially there big games. It's a double edge sword to. Because if you heavily promote a game and it does not do well...then you know what happens.

On topic, I'm looking forward to this game and hope to get into the beta. I've look at most of the videos and I like what I see.

Kryptix1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Titanfall does have a lot potential to break down many barriers. Hopefully it brings a lot of innovation with it's formula to let it top CoD and raise that bar. It does look like another CoD with mechs but at the same time, it's good for competition as it's doing something CoD developers never had the balls to do...which is to expand and really change the battlefield. Hope that it gives new ideas like for example having a great leveling system like CoD4 did with unlocking weapons and perks, setting a bar there for multiplayer in shooters.

As for Destiny, I prefer it because of it's universe, style, and co-op and not sure how PvP will work out but I'm sure it's going to be like Halo with more complex mechanics. They're separate games but I did say it before, rather pick Destiny because it's raising a bar, too in many ways. It's pretty much Bungie's talent going all out, not being tied to just Halo but rather creating a larger world centered for you, the player.

Giul_Xainx1805d ago

Looks like they just hired a new pr person. Get ready for an onslaught of jumbled words thay prick the senses. Causisng confusion is this pr persons specialty.

alexkoepp1805d ago

Lost faith in bungie after ODST and halo reach. Luckily 343 has been doing great with halo so far. I'm skeptical how destiny will turn out.

supersonicjerry1805d ago

@septic Titan fall is not competitive. its more of a casual shooter.

scott1821805d ago

A game with so many bots as opponents is not competitive, is it?

That's really my only complaint.

NumOnePS3FanBoy1805d ago

lol so much delusion in that title

Well I'll be playing both so I won't be missing out.

But I respect your opinion.

Just because others are jumping on board doesn't mean you have to.

Or its not criminal if you don't like it.

I just wish people on this site were mature enough to say the same thing when its a PlayStation game though.

Like I said I'll be playing both but I'll gettin my Titanfall on when its released.

capjacksparrow1806d ago

I can afford an Xbox One, but I refuse to buy it because of Microsoft's business practices. That being said, Titanfall looks fantastic, and I'll be getting it on my PC! I am looking forward to Destiny also, but that will be for PS4 and my friends list.

ZodTheRipper1806d ago

^Same situation for me. And to be completely honest, I wouldn't mind missing out on Titanfall. It's rather a "good-to-have" than a "must-have" for me.

MasterCornholio1805d ago


I'm in the same boat as you. Destiny interests me more than Titanfall and currently I'm planning on building a 500$ gaming PC. With that configuration if I'm interested in playing Titanfall I can do so without buying an Xbox One. But I'm more interested in building this PC for MMOs.

lolCHILLbro1805d ago

@carpack didnt you get the memo? they reversed all those so called "business practices" which would of still had you buying games and online like you do today

Aces171805d ago

I agree. I'm also more excited for Destiny, but Titanfall will still be great. Calling it CoD with mechs is like calling Destiny an open word Halo it does neither game justice.

jetlian1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Man n4g is in a sad state. Titanfall is gonna be tight. Destiny has nothing to do with it. Get both if you can/want but the crying needs to stop.

As for over hype try "the order 1886"

The fact that you and others have to drag destiny into an article that has nothing to do with destiny says alot about the type of gamers you are. You guys do it all the time. Does titanfall annoy you? You have the option to skip buying it so pls stop with the hate. First it was cod with mechs, the clouds, 6 vs 6, crap ai, 720p,its also on 360 and pc, ill just get it on my pc and now its destiny looks way better....wth? Give it a rest guys.if you dont like it then move on.

Titanfall may look like cod with mechs to you but it doesnt make it less fun.its great to play, confirmed by hundreds who have actually played it and a winner of so many awards already..people love this game, and i actualy believe its going to set a multiplayer standard, so pls do refrain from stealth trolling.

Pls stick to the topic and make n4g a happier place for all gamers.

4ShotKing1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

I don't know why Playstation fans or Titanfall haters always bring up Destiny? Destiny isn't exclusive to the PS4, nor the XB1, it's on current-gen as well, there are no bragging rights to be held bragging about a "MULTIPLATFORM" game on MS and PS platforms.

MasterCornholio1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

"there are no bragging rights to be held bragging about a "MULTIPLATFORM" game on MS and PS platforms."

Only three things can be bragged about a multiplat.

1. If it runs better on one system than the other.
2. If one version has exclusive content and the other does not.
3. If one version gets DLC before another version.

I'm just speaking in general terms here but besides that I agree with you.

NewMonday1805d ago

the twitter comment is calming TitanFall will be better than other MP FPS games, many gamers don't agree and give the opinion Destiny is more interesting.

ShugaCane1805d ago


The topic is about a guy basically saying that TitanFall will set a benchmark in Online FPS. I don't see why this is off-topic to mention another very popular game in the same genre.


Destiny is not a PS4 exclusive, yes. So how am I being a PS fan here ? Your argumentation doesn't make much sense here.

BG115791805d ago

@4ShootKing, and TF is on Xbone, 360 and PC...
What's your point?

pompombrum1805d ago

This article has everything to do with Destiny though.. I'm not a Titanfall hater nor a PS fanboy but Microsoft mentioned setting the bar so high it won't be matched for a while.. obviously it was meant as hype but that leaves itself wide open to be compared to pretty much every MP game in production. Destiny stands out as the MP game many people are excited for and a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stagnant genre so it's only natural it would get mentioned in an article like this.

Farmassy1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Hey guys what do you know? Who would have guessed that Newmonday is in a titanfall article with the sole purpose of downplaying the game?

Its getting pathetic. It is going to be a great game so you should just get over it. For someone who isn't interested in titanfall you sure do look at a lot of articles about it and write a lot of comments.

Why do you keep doing it? Do you hate yourself? You have given yourself a life where you need to actively seek out and disagree with something simply because you will not have it. It is honestly very sad

Don't be jelly mmkay?

Edsword1805d ago

These kind of statements are typically not good PR moves. MS should be more reserved because even if Titanfall is a great game, these kind of statements can make the hype a whole other entity of its own. The idealized Titanfall and the realized Titanfall might meet MS expectation, but it might not meet the expectations of the gamer that buys into all the hype expecting something that is well beyond something they have ever experienced before. Let's be realistic, it is still on a screen, requires a controller to play, and involves attempting to kill AI or Human players in a large, albeit set parameter arena. I don't think its possible for it to be so good that it will take a long time to match. That is just MSBS.

N2NOther1805d ago

Let's put it this way. Has there been a game that has matched Call of Duty in terms of success or influence? Nope. Like it or not, Call of Duty set a bench mark for online MP and has influenced tons of games after it and yet none of the games it has influenced has matched it.

Take any hate of the franchise out of the equation and this is undeniably true.

Titanfall is expected to be the next game to do this.

mediate-this1804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )


there is nothing but praise about this game. Its been shown gameplay dayone, it has got an alpha testing phase, we are getting a beta. Everyone loves it.

there are games im more concerned for that have been hyped to no end. with zero game play at all.

But one side of n4g blindly follows that false hype, and that game could be a dud

dcj05241805d ago

Nobody has matched WARHAWK or MAG yet so when will that bar be reached?

kingduqc1805d ago

Mag was garbage, warhawk was a good game but forgetable.

Sayai jin1805d ago

Whats funny is that people are on this article comparing it to Destiny. Why Destiny?

UnHoly_One1805d ago

I don't understand why everyone keeps bringing up Destiny, either.

They aren't even really the same kind of game.

It's like comparing Halo to Borderlands.

I know Destiny is going to have some dedicated PvP stuff, but it's main focus is basically being like an MMO.

I just don't get the comparisons. Especially because anyone with a PC, XB1, or 360 will likely get both games anyway.

Hicken1805d ago

Probably has something to do with the claim of it being far superior to every other multiplayer game coming out, which includes Destiny.

People are countering that Destiny had their interest more. Regardless of the specific type of game, this statement tales a shoot at multiplayer, period. Does it not make sense for someone to being up other multiplayer games? It's not even a comparison, directly. Just an opinion on which seems more interesting.

TheKayle11805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )


in fact u have no idea of what games are u talking about...

u mixing oranges to apples...

destiny mmo op persistent world...with raid bosses

titanfall competitive multiplayers arenas...

so how can both games look to u dosnt really matter coz TO U..they can look as everything u want coz u didnt understand how both games works

if u need to make the first post just to beat down some ms exclusive...just do it with a brain...

coz in this way u win just bubble down for trolling

ps. to the artificial hype..
everyone in the industry that playe dand seen titanfall been excited from the day pls ...if ui dont want play and wanna play other games...just do it ..without trying to change the reality

pss. destiny come to the xb1,ps4,wii u, and maybe to pc

and im already telling u if is true that come also on pc ..this isnt a remake of an old console tomb raider was....that they had to put NICER things on the video to make ppl buy the game again...
destiny is being developed knowing already all the platforms..and will take advantage of them
so IF IS TRUE THAT IT COME is 100% sure that the best version of Destiny will be on pc ...

ssj271805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

Competitive? But it has bots in it for easy kills.

You and me have a huge difference into what's competitive.

Killing mindless bots and been able to be vip by doing so is far from competitive as it can be.

3-4-51805d ago

Destiny has me much more excited but Titanfall releasing can ONLY be a good thing for the industry.

Doesn't matter what companie makes it, the FPS genre needs a bit of a shake up.

I like Dev's that are trying something different.

They risk failing, but at least they have the nuggets to try.

Most likely not getting a XB1, but I hope this sells really well.

Jaces1805d ago

Still don't like the bots as filler. If I wanted to fight bots I'd play a single player campaign.

ITPython1805d ago

The bots are there to make it easier for people to get kills. They are designed to be cannon fodder so people feel good about themselves and think they are really good players.

Respawn knows that the majority of COD players enjoy free and easy kills, and this is their attempt at stepping that idea up a notch.

bjmartynhak1805d ago

Destiny is different type of MP.

Titanfall may set the bar for arcade/fast-paced shooters. That's it.

But yeah, Destiny will be big. Shame that I don't enjoy co-op focused games so much. Warframe and Borderlands for example were a miss for me.

Magicite1805d ago

''Microsoft: Titanfall Will Set A MP Look/Feel/Gameplay Bar So High, It'll Take A Long Time To Match'' - empty talks.

Spenok1805d ago

I agree with this sentiment exactly.

Not only that but the Hype MS is putting on TitanFall with this statement is pretty much just setting it up for failure....

WillM171805d ago

This game is just a crap.

ITPython1805d ago

Obviously MS is going to hype this game to hell and back. I bet that either slightly before, or after Titanfall releases, we are going to see nearly every bag of chips, soda can/bottle, and fast food place flooded with "Win an XB1 and/or Titanfall!" giveaways.

This will accomplish 3 goals for MS:

1. This essentially advertises the heck out of the game. Anybody who eats chips, drinks sodas, or likes McDonalds, will become very aware of Titanfall.

2. All the consoles and copies of TF they give away, they count as sales. Padding their numbers significantly.

3. With those padded numbers, MS will use it as ammo to show the world that despite heavy hitting games coming out on the PS4 in the same month as Titanfall, the XB1 managed to 'keep up'. Giving the illusion that the console is successful and doing well.

Might seem far fetched, but come on, this s MS, we know they are capable of doing whatever it takes to convince the world that the XB1 is the right choice. And I mean WHATEVER it takes.

mediate-this1804d ago

TACOBELL gave away free playstation 4 systems for FREE. Did I mention they were giving away for FREE

ITPython1804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )

Yeah, they had that one giveaway. But the difference between Sony and MS is that Sony doesn't need to pad their numbers and has the integrity not to do so. Unlike MS, who has proved time and again that they have no ethical or legal boundaries when it comes to getting their way.

Sony had the taco bell giveaway to let people get a PS4 before it was released, which was pretty awesome of them! MS only had the giveaways to pad their numbers for November and December to make it appear as if the XB1 was 'competing' during the holiday season. And I wouldn't be surprised if most, if not all, of the ones winning these giveaways were actually MS employees who put the consoles back on the market and counted it as two sales.

Nothing is beyond MS at this point, they are as low as a company can go in terms of sleaziness, lies, and deception. They took a page right out of the current US administrations book because they saw how well it was working, and figured they could apply the same tactic.

Luckily the gamers aren't quite buying into it as much as MS hoped, but every legitimate XB1 sold proves that it is working to some extent.

ZombieKiller1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

I'll be the judge of that Respawn. This and Destiny (later) are up there on my list.

That's after Metal Gear though. I need to clear my damn schedule. March looks like November, as far as me buying games this year

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1805d ago

Of course a game on both consoles looks more interesting than an Xbox exclusive. Of course now the Sony fan likes and can't wait for a Bungie game.

I wonder why that is.

Docknoss1805d ago

Huh... What? I don't understand the comparison? Maybe exclusive vs exclusive or MMO vs MMO. Not a Exclusive vs multiplatform or MMO vs FPS.

beereal3601805d ago

Destiny looks good but titan fall looks funner. I'm buying both u should to.

DonFreezer1805d ago

Why do I have a feeling that you base your opinion on the fact that ps4 won't be getting Titanfall. Almost all of the people agreeing with you try to downplay Titanfall in order to cover up the fact that it's not coming to the ps4 as the reason they think Destiny will be better.

it plays just like COD. Just throw in Mechs and parkour

Kayant1805d ago

Agreed but what makes it difference is the you will be using those so often it won't feel/play like COD based on the leaked videos. Which is not a bad thing IMO it will be good for people to try something a but different from the usual run and gun.

But yh if you just stay on the ground then the interface/feel is quite COD-like.

N2NOther1805d ago

The mechs and parkour would mean that it doesn't play just like COD though, wouldn't it?

MorePowerOfGreen1805d ago

Yeah escaping Mechs and using them plus flying around with jetpacks and moving around like the girl in Mirror's Edge plays like COD. SMH

ZombieKiller1805d ago

So you're telling me you didn't see even a bit of Call of Duty in the gameplay trailers?

Put away the sarcasm, it's probably why you have 1 bubble. He was saying the movement and gun play look similar not the parkour and mechs. Helen fncking Keller could see what the guy meant...and he's right. It does. Only it looks more refined and way better than any COD game.
