Titanfall getting live-action content?

“Your Titan is Ready” website suggesting live-action content set in Titanfall's universe counting down to the midnight launch.

A website with the URL yourtitanisready.com has announced that Respawn and the visual effects studio Playfight, which made the Call of Duty live-action short Operation Kingfish, “have teamed up to bring you original content set within the vast expanse of the Titanfall universe.”

"Titanfall is set in a rich near future universe with visceral, epic battles with Pilots and their Titan companions," Dusty Welch of Respawn is quoted on the website. "We wanted to partner with Playfight, who has a history of delivering movies that meld gameplay, live action and stellar CG into truly entertaining media, for Titanfall. What this collaboration brings is yet to unfold…"

The site features a clock that’s counting back to Titanfall’s launch, when a teaser trailer should unlock. Several Playfight team members also said on Twitter that they are heading to Austin for SXSW, teasing a Titanfall announcement.

Respawn and Electronic Arts have yet to confirm if the website is officially tied to Titanfall, and it’s also suspicious that it's registered in Panama, so you should take all of this with a grain of salt.

There was some confusion yesterday about what new Titanfall information would be revealed at the game’s midnight launch event in Austin after Microsoft’s Jeff Rubenstein said on Major Nelson Radio that it will be “showcasing the future of Titanfall.”

Respawn’s Vince Zampella later clarified that the “‘future’ thing is just something fun. Not how I would have described it, but still fun.”

Could this be what Zampella was referring to, and would you be interested in live-action content that explores the Titanfall universe?

I'm more interested in a The Last of Us movie, since it's not playable on PC and the game has a strong story focus. If this live-action thingy is free to watch, I might see it, but I'm not terribly excited about it or the game.

I was going to buy it on PC. I've watched many beta gameplay videos of people and was really excited but then I realized I wouldn't fit. Being handicapped my speed and control would be so-so and the game is very fast paced. If it was solo I'd play but being 6v6 I'd just hurt my team and people tend to be pretty rude in these situations.I'll enjoy watching videos on youtube, no need to hurt my body and avoid hurtful chat comments. Have fun guys! 8)

Didn't we all agree that 'content' was the buzzword we all hated coming off the back of E3? I just noticed this morning how many articles on here have the word content in the titles...I guess we're doomed...

I'm heavily concerned about the launch week. Online launches (Diablo 3, SimCity) tend to be a bit clumsy. Ok, ok, they tend to be hideous.

I played the Beta. I liked it, but didn't feel like it was going to be the be-all-end-all next huge thing that the hype machine is saying it will be. If anything, this is a much needed good game option for the X1 that will be a big deal for a while, but by this time next year will be $29.99 on most bargain racks at a retailer near you because it's no longer selling copies.  2 things worry me....EA doesn't do shooters well and brand new IP's can be real turds sometimes (Brute force on original Xbox comes to mind)    I do plan to buy it, I do plan to play it, but I think I agree with 99% of the posts on this thread, I'm tired of seeing new articles about it, let's go already

CGI has ruined gaming its desensitised us to what should be this gens stunning graphics by bombarding us last gen with CGI cut scenes. Its slowly replacing gameplay so soon games will be nothing more than one big B movie quality cutscene with zero gameplay and it bloats file sizes and development budgets so no publisher is willing to take risks with real gameplay anymore. Microsofts TV TV TV strategy just exemplifies all that is wrong with the gaming industry today !

This game is getting more hype than it deserves, yeah it looks fun. But it is not reinventing the wheel here, it plays on a 10 year old engine and the game is also cross gen. I will wait for the inevitable, and better, Titanfall 2.

@Anigmar  What? No wayyyyy. Just buy it dude. That's why the Grunts and Spectres exists in the first place. Hell, most of us that played the beta didn't even talk to each other. All we did was having fun farming grunts, piloting Titans, and helping fellow Pilots if we're near to each other. Just get it if you want it, I'm pretty sure you'll be having fun since it's only 6v6, and with AI, you'll feel like you matter in the game, although you had like 0 Pilot kills, 10 AI kills and 5 deaths. I know because I experienced it :)

@byyys  It's a lot cheaper elsewhere,good try getting a $1.75 referral link bonus though.

@joshua6775  I really enjoyed it. I was sick of playing FPS's and didn't think Titanfall was that appealling. Then I played it and found myself wanting to keep playing it. It's fun and the games are short so you can pop in and out when you want. I like it.

@de-astroturfer  Sorry but you're misunderstanding the TV TV TV strategy. It's simple, let me tell you: Microsoft wants the X1 to be the center of your living room. The device that controls any piece of entertainment. Big B movie cutscene with zero gameplay make me think of TEH INCREDIBLE LAST OF US and BEYOND 2 SOULS.

I'll keep warning you: don't get close to any ND employee because they sure have the Midas Touch and might turn you into a piece of gold.

@de-astroturfer hmm, you got a good point, some games that come to mind for me are Last of Us, Uncharted series, Beyond 2 Souls, God of War, and Metal Gear Solid-  Wait a minute, those are almost all Sony exclusives, my fault I forgot we were bashing Microsoft - Titan Fall is gonna suck! saved it at the end there

@M413FIK-E  Why is every gamers logic "just wait". "Just wait" something else will come out that is better. Then when that comes out "just wait" it will get better. I'm interested in playing GAMES not waiting around.

Why wait? Just get it for the PC. I'm skipping the XBO version because it looks like crap for a next-gen console.....but the PC version is miles ahead. Or get it for the 360, since it's all the same as the XBOne version.

But if you already got conned into an XBOne, just get it for that?..if your PC can't run it or something.

@elaisse2 @wookiegr  Lol at Infamous. I heard the first and second was terrible. Not gonna put much hope on this one either. Great graphics DOES NOT equal to great gameplay. Want good example? Killzone Shadow Fail lol

@admiral_floofee I used to play Left 4 Dead 2 but people would kick me out of game cause I couldn't rush like them. I always supported & healed others though. In MMOs I help new players with info & free items yet I couldn't have good raids cause people rushed again. In BF3 & CODs I got all sorts on mean insults cause of my bad K/D ratio. Honestly, it's got to a point where I can't play any team MP cause of people. I endure lots of difficulties irl, last thing I need are cyberbullies. Wish there was more people like you.

@FBohler @de-astroturfer  Yes they want to be the centre of the living room because they missed the tablet boat and they have run out of new ideas for revolutionary devices, the only idea they had left was a something something TV, unfortunately they missed the multimedia revolution by about 30 years and it still needs all the other set top boxes you already pay for to work, all the xbox one does is hijack the cables and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege of using the services you already pay for, the xbox one is an just an ill-conceived con.

What !?!? read my last line again and break it down

"Microsofts TV TV TV strategy just exemplifies all that is wrong with the gaming industry today" …..

"exemplifies all that is wrong with the gaming industry today"…..

"with the gaming industry"…..

"GAMING INDUSTRY"

I was referring to the whole "GAMING INDUSTRY" The only reason why I referenced Microsoft's TV strategy is because thats what this article is about and the fact their TV strategy does indeed exemplify my point. 

God you lot at Microsoft are so touchy !

@GrenadeLauncher @jameston80@g0ldenpr0pet No No No, you got it all confused, I'm not upset at all, I will be playing one of the biggest games tomorrow on my Xbox One, and you won't because you are just a Sony Pony, you buy into anything Sony tells you, if sony told you there was gold inside of your ps4, you would probably believe them, and kiss their feet, and as for friends, i have many friends, alot of them are on xbox live and i don't know them personally, but i have 30 friends on xbox live that i personally do know, so why don't you go stick your head in a bucket of piss too, lol
