E3 must be around the corner, as we’re starting to get the first teasers of the show’s top games. Check out the first look at Titanfall 2’s deeper story and mech-compatible swords!
The original Titanfall exists in a weird plane of reality where it can be considered both overrated AND underrated. It may have been hyped to hell and back as the Xbox One’s biggest exclusive, but it really felt (and looked) like a shooter that couldn’t be done justice on previous-gen consoles. It may have had a short shelf life as far as popular multiplayer shooters go, but you can rest assured that a quick jump online will almost always still pack some excitement and action into a short timeframe. With that in mind, the prospect of a new Titanfall is pretty alluring, so the first-look trailer has re-deployed our excitement.
The Titanfall 2 teaser doesn’t show (or tell) much, but what we can glean is promising. The emotion-filled voiceover seems to indicate that there will be more of a narrative than the tacked-on cutscenes that introduced stages in the first Titanfall. More importantly, your Titans can now wield swords, which should make for even crazier mech battles, though that indicates that you’ll have even crazier moves at your disposal as a soldier to avoid the behemoth blades. Fortunately, we won’t have to wildly swing in the dark at answers for very long, as the teaser promises a more thorough reveal two months from now, just ahead of E3 2016.
What do you think of this first look? Are you a fan of the original Titanfall, or did your interest, er, fall off?
