Next month, the wait will finally be over. The successor to 2014’s Titanfall will be released. Respawn Entertainment have been working hard on the game in the last two years, and they’ve made some changes. For example, there are no more customizable loadouts for the titans. Instead, the six titans will have different set loadouts with unique weapons and abilities. The pilots can use new equipment like the grapple to be even more agile or pull enemies closer. However, the biggest addition is probably the singleplayer campaign. The first installment was a multiplayer-only game, but Titanfall 2 is now getting a singleplayer mode. The following post by Respawn shows that this mode will not be half-assed and that they gave thought to it.
“A Different Style of Pacing
Titanfall 2’s single player campaign is a carefully crafted, cinematic shooter experience, but with a different style of pacing than you might expect. While you’ll experience a wide range of intense battles as a Pilot and as a Titan during your journey with BT, those experiences will be contrasted against opportunities for exploration and some quieter moments of contemplation.
Experience Titanfall on Your Own Terms
Single player is designed to be a standalone narrative experience, so that you can enjoy Titanfall at your own pace and on your own terms. It’s not a training module for multiplayer. That said, there are many moments in the campaign where you’ll have to use basic Pilot skills such as wall running and double-jumping, as well as other Pilot and Titan abilities. As you get used to flowing and maneuvering in single player, using your abilities in concert, you’ll find yourself naturally better prepared to enter the realm of multiplayer, should you choose to do so.
A New World to Discover
One thing that surprised us after the release of the first Titanfall was just how much fans wanted to learn about the universe. This sentiment gave us an extra push to find ways of delivering lore across all parts of Titanfall 2. In single player, the citizen soldiers of the Militia continue their fight to retake the Frontier. Set against them are the occupying forces of the vast, Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. Our story begins when the Militia deploys a small fleet to the planet Typhon, in support of a wider offensive push. But not everything on Typhon is as it seems, setting the stage for you and BT to journey through a hostile and strange, yet beautiful world.” For more information visit: https://www.titanfall.com/en_us/news/five-things-about-titanfall-2-single-player/
