Outside of Battlefield 1, EA has another first person shooter set to come out this year. All the hype surrounding Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has managed to overshadow one key game, Titanfall 2.
A new report claims the game could be released in the 4th quarter of 2016. This could be real due to the information coming from Electronic Arts’ quarterly earnings report. We might not get an exact date until the gameplay reveal on June 12, 2016, just a day before E3 2016 begins.
We’ve seen the first teaser trailer of the title a month ago, but it failed to garner the same attention as the Battlefield 1 trailer. However, it does have a decent enough following due to the release of the first game on the Xbox One.
The first game was developed by several former Infinity Ward employees who left the studio and Activision to venture down a different path.
From what we have seen and played, Titanfall is similar in many ways to the Call of Duty franchise, but is instead set far into the future where humans have located several planets. Some of these planets are home to dragons among other creatures, so this game is more science fiction than anything else, and that’s a great differentiator. There’s also a Titanfall companion app available for Windows 10.
Titanfall 2 is expected to play on the key elements that allowed the first game to be a success. In the first game, all gamers have the ability to use jetpacks to get around the map. When compared to similar games, the jetpack is very important as each map is designed with this feature in mind.
What’s more important, however, is the option to call on huge robots known as Titans. Players can manually maneuver these giant war machines, or have them automatically cause havoc.
