Titanfall – An Introductory Look at an Innovative Shooter

/ Jul 23rd, 2013 No Comments

Titanfall PC requirements

After the co-founders of Infinity Ward, Jason West and Vince Zampella, were fired from Activision, they founded Respawn Entertainment. The gaming studio will release its first game called Titanfall in Spring 2014 on Xbox One and PC. From what Respawn Entertainment has introduced to gamers through trailers and demos, Titanfall will be fresh, fun, and intense.

If you haven’t read it already, be sure to check out our official Titanfall Gameplay E3 Impressions article as our staff was at E3 to check out the game in person.

Titanfall will not be an ordinary online first-person shooter game. It blends the elements of both multiplayer and single-player aspects. Players will experience awesome combat moments and interactive, detailed environments. Titanfall will feel and look like a single player game, but there will only be a multiplayer option.

Some really great aspects of this game are the many combat options. Players can choose to be pilots or Titans. Titans are heavily armed machines that are an extension of a pilot. When players are pilots, they will experience a seamless interaction as they enter in and out of their Titan. The environment is designed for both scales of the small pilots and the large Titans. It is up to the players to choose what to be at certain moments since there are benefits and disadvantages for both choices.

Titans are not a typical slow-moving mech. They are fast, armored, and equipped with heavy firepower. Titans are a good choice if players are in open spaces. Not only can Titans kill opponents by shooting them, but they can also grab pilots out of other Titans and toss them away. If that’s not good enough? Titans can collect incoming bullets and reflect them back at the enemy. Now that’s cool! But because Titans are larger, they lack the agility the pilots have.

Pilots may be small, but they are agile and can jump around by using their jet packs. They can jump on buildings or on other Titans to hide or attack. Players have to use hit and run tactics in order to defeat Titans. Pilots versus Titans are not the only combat situations. Pilots can fight pilots and Titans can fight Titans. There are so many combat styles and situations that it will keep players hooked.

Titanfall is designed for newcomers as much as experienced players. There is a balance of AI and real players in open maps. Anyone can experience a glorious moment whether one is a pilot or inside a Titan. Respawn Entertainment may be a new gaming studio, but it is powered by FPS veterans. So far there is a lot of promise in Titanfall, it seems certain to be a hit when it releases in Spring 2014.
