Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 review: Rise of the Titans

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. This doesn’t make any sense. A good multiplayer-focused AAA FPS that also has a good campaign? What is this, 2007? Yes, the follow-up to Respawn Entertainment’s flagship title has built upon everything its predecessor had and even managed a few surprises.

First impressions: Titanfall 2 multiplayer tech test

I’ve had fun with Titanfall 2’s pre-alpha, but I wouldn’t say it’s better than the original. It has its problems. A lot of problems. And a lot of people are complaining. But let’s start with the positives. The thing I’ve enjoyed the most so far is the grappling-hook. It allows for more freedom to quickly navigate through maps, if you’re skilled enough. Running along walls and slinging through tree...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 trailer teases June reveal

After Respawn Entertainment’s lead writer Jesse Stern revealed that the upcoming Titanfall 2 would have a single player campaign, despite its predecessor being online multiplayer only, player interest in the title certainly increased. Titanfall had some really fun mechanics, but its online servers became so desolate so quickly that copies of the game were rendered essentially useless.

Titanfall 2 to have a single player campaign

  Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen several “online multiplayer only” games be hyped up with innovative ideas, released, played incessantly before suddenly becoming dead in the water. They usually review pretty well because at their core the games are fun, but for various reasons they don’t hold players’ interest for long before another title comes out an...[Read More]
