We all love video games which stretch the imagination and add a new form of combat to the mix, be that controlling drones to spot your prey before they see you or having echo goggles to locate the biggest threat before you’ve even left your cardboard box, Titanfall did the opposite. Rather than going small, Titanfall wanted to make combat bigger, and it did so by introducing giant mechs, so how will Titanfall 2 beat this? Mechs with Swords!
Titanfall had two battlegrounds mixed into one, the fast and agile pilots running for cover amongst the giant towering Mech suits that seemed to rain down on the battlefield. When it came to combat you would often find yourself preparing a volley of rounds only to have a shield deflect them back at you, a fate which often caused pilots and mechs alike to fall, so the natural inclusion of swords will topple the shields kill count in classic mecha style!
With Titanfall 2 also offering a campaign mode, something that was sorely missing from the original, players can expect to enjoy the chaos on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. With the original game suffering from a post-release drop in players, let us hope that Respawn, its creators, and masterminds, are able to keep the game running longer so more are able to enjoy the mecha battles that they will always crave for.
Respawn Entertainment has announced Titanfall: Deluxe Edition, which includes the original game and its three DLC packs.
Deluxe Edition includes Expedition, Frontier’s Edge, and IMC Ricing – with 9 new maps in total added to the game. The new version of Titanfall is currently available for Windows PC right now, while the Xbox One version of the game will arrive sometime next week.
In the above video, Repsawn and EA talk about Titanfall’s multiple updates, all of which have modified the game from its original form. Titanfall has been played by over 7 million people so far, but this doesn’t result in 7 million sales.
Titanfall: Deluxe Edition costs $39.99 for Windows PC and is available through Origin, while the Xbox One version will retail for $49.99 when it hits on November 25.
Gamers can rejoice this week as Respawn has finally given confirmation of the new Titanfall DLC, which is now known to be heading to the block buster online shooter next month.
Titanfall developer Respawn confirmed at PAX East and on their Twitter shortly afterwards that gamers can expect to see the DLC, which is called Expedition, some time in May. The DLC will be the first additional release for the title, but the developer has told us to expect a wave of updates as well, so expect some tweaks and performance improvements very soon.
Three new maps; Swampland, Runoff and Wargames are to introduced in the Expedition DLC, while the new updates are suggested to include “Burn Cards” and “hashtag” matchmaking filters, as well as a new 2 vs 2 Last Titan Standing game mode and limited time “riffs”, which are similar to L4D mutations.

With Titanfall just weeks away from release on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and of course PC, it couldn’t be a better time to reveal that there will be a huge range of merchandise released alongside the game, and we wouldn’t have expected anything less given that it is a game created by people who worked on Call of Duty titles and of course Electronic Arts are in charge, two teams that are well known to cash in as much as possible on each franchise.
Titanfall is one of this years most hotly anticipated titles, with already 80 awards from around the world to its name without even having been released yet, it will be the first original shooter that hits ones of the new generation of consoles. The prospect of frantic FPS action and having heavily-armoured 24ft Titans at your disposal is a tempting proposal, and we really can’t wait to see how this game plays.
