More about Titanfall
Titanfall is the first original shooter for the next generation, offering thrilling, dynamic first-person action gameplay. Titanfall features elite assault pilots and agile, heavily-armored, 24-foot titans. “Titanfall” delivers a unique world that combines pure adrenaline, wall-running, double-jumping action with powerful, fast-paced titan warfare to set the new bar for online multiplayer gameplay.
Standby for Titanfall
Crafted by key developers behind the CALL OF DUTY franchise, “Titanfall” delivers heart-pounding multiplayer action combined with dramatic, cinematic moments that lets players enjoy the fiction and characters of the universe without having to leave their favorite online multiplayer mode. Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war, “Titanfall” drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation and the Militia. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.
