Titanfall is approaching its release fast, and Respawn Entertainment is shedding light on several aspects of the game , giving us a better idea of what we can expect on March 11th.
That's kind of bummer on the rumble trigger omission. I think they could have done some cool things with it. For instance, if they had turned it off while driving a titan but turned it on while dismounted and firing a weapon as a pilot, that might have been pretty neat.
On the bright side, that kind of thing could be easily patched in and I bet it will be eventually.
Yea id love for them to patch it
Yeah, it is unfortunate that not more devs are using the trigger rumbles and Kinect. I hope MS picks up the mantle and pushes it so it becomes a standard that is well integrated into games. The feedback from the trigger rumbles in Forza 5 was fantastic. I cannot wait to feel the difference of firing different guns. Firing the Gears gnasher, sawed off or even the mortar will be awesome! So I hope Respawn patches it in.
No rumble? What do you mean no rumble? Did the New Xbox suddenly release a "Sixaxis" update that renders the rumble useless? No? Then what happen? NO RUMBLE? OH LORDY NO RUMBLE!? How am I supposed to be immersed in the gameplay with NO RUMBLE? What happen to rumble? Why it no rumble with Titan mech walk? If it doesn't rumble when titan mech walk then no buy. (Seriously this argument against the PS3 is suddenly acceptable for Titanfall..)
Ya I agree.. Would have thought a game like titanfall would have been one of the games to showcase the feature.. But ya.. Patch it in later.. But I agree with the "don't include things for the sake of adding them" mentality.. Maybe they just didn't see it as necessary..
I was going to make the exact same comment. I'm almost mystified that they didn't incorporate the triggers in this way. It would have gone a long way towards creating a sense of scale and in someways would have made up for the lack of recoil on most weapons.
This is EA we're talking about here- the people that thought it would be cheaper to have a crappy inventory system in Mass Effect rather than pay a guy 3 hrs worth of work to fix it. The same EA that later thought it would be even cheaper to just forgo inventory management in ME 2 since no one liked what they did in ME 1. You aren't going to see rumble triggers because it's cheaper to not have it then it is to have it.
I don't think EA has much to do with these type of decisions. It's not like they micromanage game development, they just make sure developers make deadlines. Several EA games have incorporate platform unique features. For example , battlefield, need for speed, and all of their sports games support kinect. Sounds like Respawn just decided not to bother with rumble triggers.
The trigger rumble is a gimmick and screws up your shots. Thats why they wont use it.
That's just nonsense. Trigger rumble won't mess up your shots any more than typical controller rumble, as it is your trigger finger - not your aiming finger - which is receiving the rumble feedback.
@Giul_Xainx Let me educate you since you dont have an Xbox One. Titanfll does have rumble. The XBone controller not only rumbles in the Palms, but is capable of rumbling in the Triggers. The trigger rumbling is what the article is about.
I wanted to have it too
I wanted rumble in my game bro!
Or if your in the Titan and your walking around.. Every time you took a step and the left foot hit the ground the left trigger would vibrate and same with the right.. Oh the possibilities that was missed to incorporate this feature!
Yeah they dropped the ball on this one. I was really looking forward to them using the triggers in this game. I wonder if it is really that hard to implement?
Good, rumble kills batteries.
The first thing that happens when your batteries are running out is the rumble stops, I dunno if rumble makes them run out quicker, but I'd say it would. I thought I'd turned something off in Forza by mistake until I googled it. Also my PS4 controller would last longer if the lights could be turned off.
Well duh but up until the point it turns off its already used the juice My ones controller eats juice like crazy lol
Man I really had fun with the beta. I'm so looking forward to this only 9 days!!!!!
@Ghost_Nappa An option in the settings to turn off rumble doesn't.
Funnest FPS ever IMO.
The beta was such a good teaser. I wasn't really expecting one and there it was though. Just made me even more hyped for the game. It will be the best next gen game so far IMO. Edit: Really hope the patch in rumble for the triggers. I agree with 3 p l c though and it should be incorporated with the Titan.
Does anyone know the frame rate ?
Fuck the frame rate games gonna be great.
@fractured27 Um...No. Frame rate is extremely important, especially considering t's a twitch shooter. With crappy frame rate you'd wouldn't be enjoying this game.
Would be nice if they eventually could add in the rumble trigger support for things like when the Titan goes into critical state. Not sure i need it for shooting effect but certainly it could be used effectively in other areas.
Bet they don't even want to ship the game. Build the hype forever, never let fall.
no rumble in the triggers? More evidence that this game is nothing but a port from the 360 version
Respawn only worked on the x1 version another studio did the 360. That's common knowledge.
the 360 version was already in development in 2010 so yes respawn started out on the 360 version
You don't think respawn had dev. kit back then? So no, Respawn did not work on the 360 version at all. Link me verification that says Respawn actually worked on the 360 version. Another studio, who specializes in ports, ported the X1 over and optimized it to feel extremely similar to that of X1.
Wow. Considering the completely different dev who's making the 360 version is actually PORTING it from the Xbone version... yeah.
I can't tell the difference with the rumble triggers but i only played DR3,ryse,KI and strider. What i do like is streaming my music from my smart phone with snap app.
I just bought the Titanfall controller and The Art of Titanfall book. The controller looks and feels awesome but I'm saving it for the 11th. The book gives great insight into the world of Titanfall. There is enough info to give you an idea of what may be in the game but not enlighten I spoil anything. The guns they show look fantastic. I can't wait. Just over a week to go. I'm so excited.
I ordered the collectors edition Xbox one game. I didn't get the controller, but it does look cool.
I wanted to get the collectors edition but I just don't have room for an 18" statue. Wait, let me clarify, my fiancé won't let me have it. Once we get a house, my man cave will not be denied these collector editions. The art book is really cool and gives a great background to the story of Titanfall. In the beta, I didn't get a chance to gawk at all the details of the two levels. I was to fascinated by the gameplay. When I looked through the art book, I noticed many of the cool things that I missed. The wanted posters/billboards around the maps. The reasons for the different color schemes of the levels and the characters. The way the interior of the building vs looked. Is game is going to be amazing.
No triggers? How lazy, no sale. I was really stoked for this game.
Really stoked but turned off by a feature that could later be implemented as an option via patch lol Anyway!!! Beyond excited. Looked fantastic on my 1440p monitor. Cannot wait to see the other maps :)
I'll buy when it's put in ;-)
Lots of friends getting xb1 version have one friend on origin so 1080p looses for me will go where my friends are pc is my main gear but would rather laugh with friends.
would be a good addition if the announcer gave cues on how long till titanfall through the controller speaker
Is it odd that this game comes out in about a week and the only stuff we hear about it are leaks and from twitter? I know they're having some big blowout in Austin in a few days so maybe they're saving everything. Still odd to me though.
seems rushed so far.. My friends are buying this on PC & i dont blame em..
The rumble triggers are just like the ps3's six-axis. They are hardly ever used, and I hate that! The rumble triggers work brilliantly with Forza 5, so I don't see why they can't be used for shooters!
