The Electronics Entertainment Expo, or E3, has officially begun, and EA is up first to show us its upcoming lineup. One of the biggest thing to come out of the EA press conference has to be Titanfall 2.
The original Titanfall came out back in March 2014. It set the standard for the next generation of first-person shooters, introducing things like verticality, fast-paced multiplayer action, and, of course, Titans, giant mechs that players can pilot. Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment, came up to the EA stage to showcase everything new about Titanfall 2.
In a new multiplayer trailer, new gameplay elements were shown, featuring 6 new Titans with special abilities, including an ion blast like Ironman’s and a Hulk smash, similar to, well, the Hulk’s. Other new gameplay elements include grappling hooks, which takes verticality to another level, as well as new pilot abilities like holograms and anti-gravity traps. All these make combat in the Titanfall sequel more exciting than ever.
You can sign up at titanfall.com for the multiplayer stress test and to preorder the game.
Besides multiplayer gameplay, Vince Zampella also showcased something that Titanfall fans have been begging for since day one: offline single-player mode. A separate trailer was shown dedicated to the campaign, which shows many interesting things.
It was narrated from the perspective of a Titan, and it focuses mainly on the relationship between pilots and Titans, man and machine. It’s exciting that players will finally be able to explore the world of Titanfall and learn more about the conflict between its warring factions.
The trailer also showed off swords — giant mech swords!
Titanfall 2 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 28.
E3 2016: Meet the Xbox One S
You may recall earlier that images of a slimmer version of the Xbox One were leaked ahead of Microsoft’s E3 briefing. Now, it’s official: Microsoft got its announcement in, and you’re looking at the new Xbox One S, which is indeed smaller — 40 percent smaller, technically — than the current model. The lesser footprint will allow you to safely use the system in an upright position with a stand that’s sold separately. (more…)
