As part of the marketing campaign for next week's much-anticipated multiplayer shooter Titanfall, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have launched the Titanfall Arcade.

Right now, the special website lets you play an 8-bit Flash-based version of Atari's Asteroids with a Titanfall Twist. Instead of controlling a spaceship, you control a Titan. Two other Atari games are featured in the Titanfall Arcade (Missile Command and Centipede) but they aren't playable just yet. Presumably they will be later on this week.

"8-bit is better with a Titan," the website reads.

Developed by a team of former Call of Duty developers including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella, Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC. An Xbox 360 version--developed externally by Bluepoint Games--will launch on March 25. For more on Titanfall, check out GameSpot's interview with Zampella below.
