I’ve never actually played the original Titanfall – partly because I’m not really into multi-player shooters, and also because the game never had a single player campaign. At the same time, I always felt as if it was being held back because of its cross-gen development roots.
Titanfall 2 looks to eschew a lot of its predecessor’s problems however – not least because it’s going to have a pretty good campaign, amazing graphics, and will be coming to both Microsoft AND Sony home consoles – with the added bonus being that it will take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s extra power.
To be honest, in an age when gamers are already getting AAA shooters such as Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, it looks like EA’s Titanfall 2 might just be the most genuinely interesting game out of all of them when it releases on 28 October 2016. At the same time however, it’s interesting to see how EA now has two major FPS franchises while Activision has been left with only one.
