More Leaked TitanFall Gameplay Incoming

With the TitanFall Beta coming up shortly a couple of players decided to throw some awesome gameplay footage up to share their experiences in the game.

Keeping true to their Call of Duty roots, Respawn has figured out how to keep the run-and-gun pace while making the pilot/mech combo work as well.

Check out these two videos before they get taken down:

This looks to be the closest thing to a “killer app” either of the next-gen system will see for a long time. Xbox One owners look to be in for a real special treat. I’m jealous!

    Let me start with my controversial sentiment towards first-person-shooters (but please, hear me out). I believe that since the FPS genre has not changed significantly in almost ten years (starting with Halo), I feel that it’s not worth paying full price for any FPS. Since the free-to-play model has been introduced to the genre, I’ve been getting my fill on that genre that way, and considering that there have been some GREAT F2P FPS games, it’s hard to convince me to cash in on a full-price game.

    Before I watched this video, I was going to be all negative and dismissive by saying “been there, done that,” but after seeing this video, I would actually like to play this game!

    To expand on “been there, done that,” I believe that Titanfall actually plays like three games—particularly free-to-play games—rolled into one. What I find attractive in Titanfall is that it transitions from game to game seamlessly, so it would be like playing three of my favorite F2P games at the same time! Who WOULDN’T want to be part of THAT ménage à quatre of FPS gameage?!

    Anyway, here are the three games I think Titanfall might play like….while I could be wrong, at least there are three new games you can play for free!

    Planetside 2 (PC, soon on PS4) – Futuristic, hectic, and beautiful first-person combat. I use “hectic” with a bit of reservation because things only get hectic if there are enough people playing in the same area; otherwise, the maps might be too vast for a 6-8 players to achieve a comparable combat experience. Similar to Titanfall, players are able to traverse terrain with the use of a jetpack or move around undetected with a cloaking device, but these are specific to particular soldier classes. Another major aspect in the game that Titanfall can relate to is vehicular combat. The thing is, you have all the ground and air vehicles you could ever need in full-scale combat, EXCEPT bipedal tanks. However, if you’re in the heat of battle, you will encounter a tank, turret, or aircraft while you’re on foot more often than not. This can help you train on the guerrilla tactics required to take down Titans from a distance on your lonesome. However, taking Titans down by jumping on them and shooting their head off is safely a unique experience to Titanfall.

    Blacklight: Retribution (PC, PS4) – More futuristic, hectic, and beautiful first-person combat. Unlike Planetside’s uncapped player limit, BLR features 8v8 combat, so the gameplay may be much more comparable to Titanfall than Planetside 2 is. Another thing unlike Planetside 2’s metagame of conquering territory on a map, BLR offers many other game modes, like Capture the Flag, Domination, and King of the Hill. Another key element in BLR that Titanfall can relate to is the “Hardsuit,” which is essentially a mech that you call (it even deploys from the sky like a Titan!) if you want extra armor and firepower. Armed with a minigun and a railgun, you can take out a whole team of unprepared enemy soldiers by yourself while taking in a good deal of enemy fire. The difference is that the Hardsuits are comparatively very slow and unwieldy, and worse, it can be taken down with a direct hit from a single rocket.

    Hawken (PC) – Futuristic, hectic, and first-person, PURE-MECH combat. Unlike the clunky Hardsuits in BLR, Hawken’s mechs are quite agile. In all honesty I haven’t played this game more, but I’ve always been meaning to.

    If Xbox really needs to make a good impression and erasing all that negative PR, Titanfall is the game they need to launch. I’m SOny since the days of PS1, but I just put a down payment for the Titanfall bundle and can’t wait to jump in the action. I will use the X1 for their exclusives and maybe games Kinetic oriented. The future looks good for both!
