Much like a Titan touching down during a match to pull you from the clutches of certain defeat, Titanfall 2 has arrived to save you from the monotony of other shooters. Respawn Entertainment’s second game in the FPS-meets-giant-mechs franchise seeks to shake up and redefine the shooter genre and keep you not only on your toes, but running along walls, swinging from grappling hooks, and leaping onto enemy Titans in the game’s intense multiplayer.
The new game also adds a full single-player campaign that promises to fully immerse you in the world of Titanfall. So far, the game has made quite an impression and is receiving high marks across the board. Check back soon for our own full Titanfall 2 review. In the meantime, here is all the biggest Titanfall 2 news this week, just in time for launch.
Titanfall 2 Launch Event
To celebrate the launch of Titanfall 2, Respawn and EA took over a Buffalo Wild Wings in Sherman Oaks, CA. They invited their most dedicated Titanfall fans to play the new game, eat some free food, and maybe even win some sweet Titanfall swag. Our own Henry Gilbert was on the scene to talk to fans as well as the developers.
Titanfall 2 Developer Interview
At the launch event, we also had a chance to speak with Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, as well as a few other key members of the Titanfall 2 development team. We chatted about the new game, as well as lessons learned from the original Titanfall.
Catch Up on the Titanfall Story So Far
It may surprise you to hear that the original Titanfall did, in fact, have a story. It was just easy to miss since it was buried in the game’s hybrid “campaign multiplayer.” Believe it or not, there is actually a lot of backstory to the Titanfall universe. Get to know all about the setting and chain of events leading up to Titanfall 2 with our complete Titanfall story overview.

If you aren’t already hyped for Titanfall 2, this epic live-action launch trailer should do the trick. It shows just how important a Pilot and his or her Titan are to each other. On the Frontier, they must work together and become one to survive and dominate the battlefield.
