TitanFall is the new game from Respawn Entertaiment, which is made up of ex Infinity Ward develoeprs (CoD) - this was the studio that was created by just about all of IW leaving Activision (and then Activision sueing them and EA)

It is developed in the Source Engine and is coming out for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC only. Outsourcing Xbox 360 development.

Sounds interesting



- Spring 2014 Release Date
- There are a good amount of screens. In my opinion it visually looks pretty nice.
- First person shooter
- "Mech" and ground combat
- "Mech's" are called Titans.
- They want these Titans to feel fast. They can dodge etc.
- If you don't want to pilot the Titan you can have it follow you, killing people as it goes along.
- Player characters are called Pilots
- They are extremely agile. Can run on walls, multiple jumps.
- They can take down Titans. Jumping on them and shooting the "brain".
- You need to be cunning as a pilot. "Hit and fade" tactics is the term the game director uses.
- Pilots come equipped with a variety of weapons. Pistol, Assault Rifle, Anti-Titan Rocket Launcher, data knife used to hack AI characters into joining you.
- There are AI enemies on the maps.
