Thoughts: Titanfall is shaping up to be one of those games that come along and reinvent their genre, in this case being First Person Shooters.
It’s not at all surprising.
Titanfall is the debut game from Respawn Entertainment, made up of old members of Infinity Ward, the team that revamped the FPS genre with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The game revolves around futuristic warfare, which seems to be the growing trend in upcoming FPS titles. Titanfall’s hook however, is the asymmetric gameplay.
All players take on the role of agile pilots, who are able to take control of Titans at various points throughout the match. This might sound a bit unbalanced, but pilots are more than capable of holding their own.
In our hands-on playthrough, players were divided into opposing teams (absurd I know). We were then able to select our pilot and mech type, each having unique abilities based on old FPS class archetypes.
That’s when things got insane.
