Following the success of Titanfall, fans of the franchise are eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated sequel which is just around the corner. Announced earlier this year at E3, October 28th will see Respawn unveil the title that they’ve been hard at work on since March 2014. If early impressions are any indication, Titanfall 2 will be a real treat for fans of the first-person shooter genre.
Learning From Mistakes
Titanfall 2 looks to improve on its predecessors attempt by making a number of large improvements on things that made the first title fall just short of greatness.
One of the biggest complaints was the lack of a single player campaign. The multiplayer only focus left players feeling like there was something missing from the overall package, especially given that the online options available were somewhat limited for a multiplayer-only game.
Despite its flaws, Titanfall was an engaging multiplayer experience that diehard fans adored. It was a new type of FPS from seasoned develops, Respawn, who have a long history of making fantastic titles, meaning that you are guaranteed a brilliant game each and every time. Better yet, Respawn will have capitalised on the knowledge they learned from the first title, using it to make big improvements in Titanfall 2.
Available on PlayStation 4
While the original Titanfall game was an Xbox One exclusive, Titanfall 2 will make the hit franchise a multi-platform title. For the first time, Electronic Arts will be releasing the game on the PlayStation 4.
Respawn CEO Dusty Welch confirmed that the original title’s single console release was his biggest regret. However, strictly a business decision, the original title’s success how allowed the developers to scale up the operations this time round, armed with the knowledge that the title will be undoubtedly successful. With a larger audience to target, Titanfall’s fan base is sure to increase, which can only be a good thing for the longevity of the futuristic shooter.
A Refined Experience
Respawn have focused on making the gameplay the best that it can possibly be. Titanfall 2 feels like a more refined experience this time round – not only has the gameplay improved, but the smaller maps offer an increased focus on completing your objectives.
The days of running long distances from your spawn points are long gone. In Titanfall 2, you will be thrown straight into the action from the moment that you set foot on the battlefield. From the fluid, free running movements that you will execute as a pilot, to the hulking Titans that you will take control of, Titanfall is certainly a unique experience that will be difficult to find elsewhere.
Overall, Titanfall 2 is a huge improvement on its predecessor. With updated graphics, new gameplay mechanics, a single-player campaign and a refined multiplayer experience, Titanfall 2 is a much needed addition to a franchise that could go on to rival the likes of Call of Duty and Halo in the FPS market.
Titanfall 2 pre-order purchases will be given early access to Angel City, a much loved map from the original Titanfall title, as well as character customisation extras and an exclusive ‘Beast Mode’ Callsign.
