Shortly before their E3 2016 press conference, EA released a new trailer confirming Titanfall 2, the sequel to everyone’s favorite big robot FPS.
The trailer revealed the game’s release date as Oct, 28, 2016.
Titanfall 2 will address the complaints of its predecessor’s lack of single player content by including a fully-fledged single player campaign.
Unlike the last game’s “story” mode – a series of a multiplayer skirmishes with sparse voice-overs – the sequel will spin a more complete yarn that explores the strange and special bond between a pilot and their AI controlled mech. Which sounds, to be honest, a bit like Spike Jonez’s Her, albeit with quite a bit more planetary death and destruction.
The trailer also briefly uncovered a wide array of features that will be introduced in the game, including a robot adept at kung-fu, a sleek new gatling gun, and reptilian enemies.
We expect to learn more about Titanfall 2 as the show progresses.
