Titanfall 2 is what they should have done the first time
During EA’s Play event during E3, we got a much better look at Titanfall 2 and what we can expect from the much anticipated sequel. As it turns out, Respawn Entertainment does very much listen to fan feedback and this time around has included a single player campaign.
This is a important move considering that the first game in the then new series, didn’t include a single player aspect. This alienated a lot of potential consumers of the franchise and even those of us who don’t care about single player content, the fact it wasn’t included but still full price was a tough pill to swallow for some people.
However, this time around the dev’s have been listening. Respawn is expanding it’s world and exploring the dynamic relationship, between pilot and titan. It seems they are adding a lot more personality to the titan’s themselves as well as making the titan roster larger and the combat more engaging and freaking cool.
The game was never bad, it’s mechanics were solid, game play was great and was mighty fine time. But the lack of a single player content, made it so there was no subtext. At the end of the day we were just giant robots fighting each other for no real reason. This was evident when the multiplayer community, the games only asset, dwindled a couple months after launch.
See the sequel as the true game, the refined and polished version, with the added depth and narrative context that the game desperately needed to keep players engaged in the long-term.
And a added bonus, it’s no longer a console exclusive. So now Playstation 4 owners can finally jump in, and no longer be left out due to silly things such as exclusive’s.
This game is probably my most anticipated for this year so far, and I can’t wait to get my hands onto it and try it for myself.
Titanfall 2 is available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Will release on October 28th, 2016.
