EA has announced that developer Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall will be landing on store shelves for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC beginning March 11, 2014 in North America and beginning March 13, 2014 in Europe.
“Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Titanfall,” said Vince Zampella, a co-creator of “Call of Duty” and co-founder of Respawn Entertainment. “The feedback we’re getting from fans around the world is fueling our team as we head towards March and motivating us to deliver an experience that lives up to the hype.”
In addition to the standard edition of the game, the “Titanfall: Collector’s Edition” (SRP $249.99), will include an exclusive collectible 18″ hand-crafted titan statue with diorama and battery-powered LED lighting, a full-size art book featuring more than 190 pages of rare concept art, and an exclusive full-size schematic poster of the Atlas titan.
Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war, Titanfall drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia. The action is rapid and varied featuring parkour-style wall running, massive double jumps and the ability to hijack titans. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.
