Titanfall launching March 11, 2014

Multiplayer-only shooter from Call of Duty developers arriving early next year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC; $250 Collector's Edition revealed.

Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer-only shooter Titanfall will launch on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC in North America on March 11, with a European release following on March 13, the studio announced today.

Cross-platform play will "most likely" not be supported, Respawn said during the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo in June, noting a final decision has not yet been made. Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer has since said that cross-platform play between Xbox One and PC "makes sense."

The studio also announced a $250 Titanfall Collector's Edition, which features an 18" hand-crafted Titan statue with a diorama and battery-powered LED lighting. The premium bundle also includes a 190-page art book and a schematic post of the Atlas Titan.

Gamers can preorder the collector's edition today through the Titanfall online store by paying a $100 deposit. Deposits are refundable within two weeks of purchase, after which customers will face a 20 percent cancellation fee. The bonuses featured in the collector's edition will ship in advance of the game's release

Titanfall was created by numerous former Call of Duty developers, including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella.

Huh, that 20 foot mech is holding a gun? I thought it'd have built-in weapons, like a laser or an arm that has a cannon attached to it at the end. It holding a gun, just a larger one than the people that surround it doesn't look very innovative. It just looks like a 20 foot armored soldier.

^ What EA games have been delayed? The DelayStation earned its name by banking on Watch_Dogs exclusive content, Drive Club, and Killzone. One of which wishes it was Halo, and the other two won't be happening until March. So let me ask you again, what EA games have been delayed?

Awesome! Can't wait. Good time to come out too. Probably won't spend $250 on the CE, but it does look cool.

I just don't understand the concept of cross-generation games.  If Microsoft really wants people to buy their new shiny toy console, why would they distribute their flagship title Titanfall across multiple platforms?  Make it exclusive for Xbox One....then people will buy it.  It's like they want to make the feasibility of buying an Xbox One irrelevant....

still no details or anything to show this is worth the excitement....I don't see it now and haven't since it was announced/confirmed

aside from this game was created by original IW guys, this game is pretty awesome. Campaign like multiplayer, has mechs (though the mechs are too arcadey), and infrantries with jumpjet.

You completely lost me with multiplayer only shooter. Plus, I believe this is the same day or very close to the day that Dark Souls II comes out.

Love these Slave / Indie Station lovers. 

Killzone = Another fps which game basicly dead with 3rd the sucker. But to them Killzone will be the best.

Titanfall = New IP with lots of different mechanics and gamestyles. But to them , these poor kids wont be playing this game on their precious ps4 and thats why Titanfall is the worst game ever.

$60 dollars plus taxes, is already allot for a poor person to pay. $250 is just ridicules for anyone to pay. If you have money to throw around then go get your $250 dollars version, and have fun with it.

$250? . . . lol sorry but I'm not investing my money in that. However I will invest my money in your standard game.

@FULGOREY2K It's an EA game! Do you really think an EA game is going to allow any more of their games to be available on Steam?

@ewjiml Or the PC market is no threat to them. It actually looks like that. Perhaps it's because they own Windows that they made a PC version as well. Sony is more strict and doesn't give out PC versions of its exclusives.

@Deadlysyns87 think of it this way AHECKKKC hem....mhm......respawn owns the intellectual property so that means that when EA games publishing agreement ends, they can publish the sequels with someone else, if EA isn't willing to throw anymore money at it

@arqe LOL different play mechanics.
this game has a lot of ideas from the tribes games, you better play those before saying that.

and of course it seems similar also to hawken in the mech area. 

so please try those and then you can say it has new play mechanics

@arqe yeah fuck killzone, I haven't played it or titanfall so I base this on nothing so YEAH it will suck

@anybodykilla15 It means you need some serious mental help. Not kidding. If you have this much hate for a company, someone, something you don't even contend to have interest with in the first place, you have serious problems. It's only a matter of time before you end up in some kind of trouble because of your problems. Get help.

@Jdzspace They have like 5 exclusives at launch. The PS4 has like 2 now with Drive Club delay.

@awhite33 Epic TitanFall. lol!! Cows are butthurt jelly. They were begging for it on the PS4 for the past 2 months.

@anybodykilla15 @Deadlysyns87 however if Titanfall faces massive problems like Sim City did then there might never be another Titanfall Respawn is putting all its eggs in one basket here

@anybodykilla15 @arqe Killzone already sucked but  Titanfall can find a place for itself. This hybrid gameplay will determine where will the game stand so i think it will be better than the most. But i know this "it'll be better than Killzone for sure"

@angrycreep @anybodykilla15 not according to cboat....and that guy busted some serious heads, he even leaked that the original xbox 360 wouldn't have hard drives, people then were like "MS would never do that, they put hard drives in og xbox why take em out and sell em"

Deadlysyns87
Deadlysyns87

@anybodykilla15 @Deadlysyns87 it might be it depends on EA's side of the equation. I do however see this coming out on PS4 Sony has proved they can do this kind of Online only shooter. Another problem with these games is how long the lifespan will be if your using the servers Microsoft supplies they can shut it down at any time 

anybodykilla15
anybodykilla15

@Deadlysyns87 @anybodykilla15 im just going to look at like call of duty mp, that goes off without a hitch everytime I played it, and I only ever played it online, maybe respawn knew this and put all the eggs back in the chicken so they come out fresher, and I mean focused solely on the online aspect because that game will be bangin'

anybodykilla15
anybodykilla15

@blackace @anybodykilla15 @angrycreep he said they would sell 360 WITHOUT HARD DRIVES, and  you had to buy the sizes, and like I said people then were like "yeah right, so stupid, ms basically gave people harddrives with the og xbox"
