When you don’t have a planet to call your home and are travelling through the vastness of space to find a new place, how far would you go to establish your presence on a habitable planet? A multiplayer-only action-adventure first-person shooter game for the Xbox 360 console, Titanfall sees the player controlling a member of a roaming space fleet that is confronted by a corporation that intends to seize the planet that the former chooses to as well.
With a PEGI rating of 18, the gameplay of Titanfall involves you fighting either as a parkour-trained pilot or as the controller of a mech-styled walker called a Titan in order to accomplish team-based objectives as part of the Militia or the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation on a war-torn planet. Despite being an online multiplayer-only game, Titanfall also incorporates single-player elements such as non-player characters and a plot. The game begins with 12 human players being dropped on a map after selecting their pilot types. There is a timer until the Titans are released and killing other players will reduce the timer. Protected by a force field for the first 30 seconds, Titans have unique skills, animations and are slower in comparison to the pilots. The pilots are agile and are able to double-jump as well as run on walls when enough momentum is built. Titan-specific abilities include an electrified smoke which maims and repels pilots climbing up the Titan’s back, and the Vortex Blocker which hurls incoming ammunition back towards the pilots. Pilot-specific skills include the Smart Pistol which shoots around corners. This game has a campaign multiplayer mode which has character dialogue and scripted sequences as well.
Note: The game requires you to be connected to the internet for the full experience.
