During EA’s conference, Titanfall 2‘s release date was revealed to be October 28th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Titanfall 2 now comes with a single player campaign to round out the game’s experience.
The biggest change coming in Titanfall 2 is the campaign that’s to come along with the online component. The original had a campaign, if you could call it that seeing how the story was about as flat as a piece of loose leaf paper. It didn’t help either that the “campaign” was really just the online multiplayer in disguise.
So what exactly do we know about Titanfall 2’s single player? Well, Respawn Entertainment hopes to build a crafted experience to show the bond between pilot and Titan within the campaign. This time around, the Titan is much more vocal and comes with a protocol to ensure the survival of its pilot A.K.A. the player. Let’s just hope the Titan doesn’t sacrifice itself at the end of the game; players may actually shed tears for AI life.
The campaign this time around can be played offline, which should come as a relief for some.
“With the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first person shooter,” said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise.
“With Titanfall 2, we’re building on that foundation by introducing a bespoke single player campaign backed by a deeper multiplayer experience that together will once again push the shooter genre forward.”
The online multiplayer also received some adjustments as well. Six new Titans to pilot, a more robust progression structure, more effective pilot abilities and plenty of customization options.
EA’s conference didn’t dwell on Titanfall 2 for long but we we’re giving a decent amount of information and the official word on the single player campaign. Pretty good stuff all around for Titanfall 2.
Again, Titanfall 2 launches on October 28th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
