It is being called a “Call of Duty killer” and was crowned Best of E3 by numerous large gaming outlets. Many consider it the must-have next-gen game from the pool of everything that has been announced so far.
No matter which way you cut it, Titanfall is a big deal for the multiplayer community, and it will be exclusive to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC — at least for now.
The enthusiasm for Titanfall is nearly palpable within the gaming community. To further illustrate this, publisher Electronic Arts has edited together a little Titanfall E3 recap video that starts with the assembly of the massive mech in the lobby of the Los Angeles Convention Center (the mech first appeared at EA’s media briefing the day before so kudos to the team that had to assemble/disassemble/haul/reassemble the beast). There’s a few gameplay snippets within showcasing mech combat and heightened parkour agility by players when not piloting mechs.
EA isn’t expected to release Titalfall until the second quarter of 2014. Rumors are swirling that a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 release will come later in 2014, but there’s nothing to back those rumors up other than EA and developer Respawn Entertainment’s unwillingness to rule anything out regarding the game’s future past the initial launch.
