Okay, so Titanfall 2’s single-player is increasingly sounding like the real deal. There’s a new quick look out of the series’ debut campaign mode, along with some tantalising details of what we can expect from the mech-heavy story. As you’re probably aware the first Titanfall had no single-player whatsoever, much to the chagrin of fans. Respawn is looking to make up for this with the sequel and then some, from the looks of it.

Titanfall 2’s story itself concerns the Militia uprising, who are fighting back against the IMC in order to retake their Frontier homeland. This is made up of multiple planets, with the story hopping from location to location. It begins on the lush planet of Typhon, where players are dropped in behind enemy lines in what Respawn describe as a “hostile and strange, yet beautiful world.”

Respawn has said Titanfall 2’s single player campaign will be much slower than the you’d expect from the MP, with exploration and “quieter moments of contemplation.” Don’t worry though, from the looks of the trailer it’ll still have lots of cinematic bombast.

Throughout the campaign players will learn advanced pilot and titan skills which can be transferred over to the to the multiplayer, including double jump and wall run combos for extended parkour.

In total we’re looking at an 8-hour campaign for Titanfall 2 at standard difficulty settings, which isn’t too shabby. That’s pretty much in line with a Call of Duty campaign, give or take, and will of course be backed up by Titanfall 2’s prime focus - the multiplayer.

Titanfall 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28th. Despite the original Titanfall being a bit flash in the pan, are you still going to pick up the sequel? Is it a bad idea for EA to publish this just one week after Battlefield 1? Let us know your thoughts!

I was really excited for Titanfall when I fist saw it at E3, but I skipped it because there was no single player campaign when the game finally launched. So this news of a single player campaign for Titanfall 2 kind of gets me excited again. Have we all finally made enough noise to make a change happen in the game development arena? I sure hope so...

To early to assume it's gonna be a shallow 6 hours long campaign oversaturated with huge explosions and scripted scenes? Better than nothing I suppose! :)

I believe that respawn will do a good job at making this a great game. It's too early to be too optimistic and hyped but also too early to criticise an unlaunched game.

The short time between Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2's release dates seems like a huge problem to me.
I mean, both games are pretty different in their own right, one is WW1 while the other is futuristic stuff. But at their core, both games heavily multiplayer-focused FPS, so the "not-so invested gamers" may just go for one and ignore the other.


P.S. Atleast Titanfall 2's got a campaign, but only time will tell about how good it actually is.

Buy one of them, play it for 2-3 months, by that time you should have saved enough money to buy the other game, buy the other game, profit.
