Titanfall 2 will hit stores worldwide this October, EA today announced.
The sequel to the original 2014 hit Titanfall will be available on Friday, October 28, 2016 for Xbox One, Origin for PC, and for the first time in the franchise, on PlayStation 4.
Playable offline, the game’s single player campaign will see players explore the unique bond between man and machine, assuming the role of a Militia rifleman with aspirations to becoming an elite pilot. Stranded behind enemy lines, the rifleman must team up with a veteran Titan to uphold a mission they were never meant to carry out.
EA said the first-person shooter sequel would “build on the foundation Respawn [Entertainment] established with the first Titanfall – fast, fluid, and fun gameplay”.
“With the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first person shooter,” said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise.
“With Titanfall 2, we’re building on that foundation by introducing a bespoke single player campaign backed by a deeper multiplayer experience that together will once again push the shooter genre forward.”
In multiplayer, Respawn promised to deliver “expanded depth and variety” introducing six new Titans, deeper Pilot abilities, additional customisation options, and more.
The first screenshots were also released, shown below, as well as a trailer for the single player campaign (shown above) and the multiplayer mode (shown below).
