Titanfall 2 is one of this fall’s biggest games. The Oct. 28 release for the first-person mech warfare game feel closer than ever after today. First, there came the word that the game has “gone gold,” meaning it’s going to disc manufacturers. Second, publisher EA shared this extra fancy Titanfall 2 campaign trailer.
A Boy and His Robot
For those only familiar with the first Titanfall, this may be confusing. "A Titanfall 2 campaign trailer? I thought those games didn't have any solo content?" Not the case with the sequel. In addition to all the multiplayer action, Titanfall 2 contains a dedicated story about a would-be soldier stuck behind enemy lines. The only friend he seems to have is his Titan.
In the above campaign trailer, you're hearing the voice of Jack Cooper. He's the Frontier Militia member battling the IMC in a quest to survive. Jack isn't officially a Titan pilot, though he's clearly a skilled agent. As you can see in the trailer, Cooper is a skilled combatant. He single-handedly takes out about a dozen trained soldiers. Also, while he may not be a trained Titan pilot, Jack has a Titan in the campaign.
Cooper befriends a Vanguard-class Titan named BT-7274. As you can see in the campaign trailer, the two are working together, and the odds are against them behind enemy lines. It sounds like a surprisingly personal tale compared to the very light solo work in the first game. Here's hoping the actual single action is as cinematic and impressive as this video.
Titanfall 2 has Gone Gold
Accompanying this new trailer is news from Vince Zampella, one of the heads of developer Respawn. According to his recent tweet, the game is officially complete.
Congrats to the #Titanfall2 team on going GOLD!

"Going gold" is an industry term that means Titanfall 2 development is complete and ready to put on a disc. That's not to say the game won't see any DLC or updates, but the retail copy (including the campaign) are ready to go. It sounds like there shouldn't be any delays to stop the game from hitting its Oct. 28 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
