With every new year in the gaming industry, one or two titles always seem to carry the flag, serving as the most exciting and hotly-anticipated amid hundreds of releases. For this year, Titanfall was among the coveted few, and whilst an excessive build-up often leads to a disappointing eventual title, it's abundantly clear that Titanfall has come through and realized its potential. For a limited time, Titanfall is available to play for free, and if you've been curious to see what all the fuss is about, now would be a great opportunity for you to indulge in this cracking first-person shooter.
Often, developers seek to supplement the experience of a major game release on PC / console by also offering a mobile-adapted version, but given the limited nature of the smartphone and tablet despite recent improvements, these accompanying efforts (think COD: Zombies) always feel a tad half-baked. The best way any developer can utilize a mobile device, in most cases, is to release a companion app that plays to the strengths and general versatility of our beloved gadgets, and the recently-released Titanfall has just gotten its very own second-screen app on both iOS and Android courtesy of famed publisher EA.
If you're a big gaming fan, then there's no chance you've missed the incessant coverage and build up to next week's release of Titanfall. The title, which roll out exclusively to those on Xbox and PC, is easily the biggest game to drop so far this year, and with just a few days to go before the show begins, its creators are looking to ramp up interest with a series of 8-bit, Titanfall-themed titles based on some old classics. The first installment of the Titanfall Arcade, based on Asteroids, is already available to play on the Web, and with the next two arcade releases based upon Mission Command and Centipede, this is a truly nostalgia-inducing, old-meets-new affair.
The age of the Titans is almost upon us, with the upcoming release of the game just around the bend, looming closer by the hour as we approach March 11. Respawn Entertainment’s masterpiece is one of the most anticipated gaming titles of the year, and that is more than evident from the release of Microsoft’s Xbox One Titanfall bundle offer, as well as the collector’s edition pack of the game announced back in October last year. Now, the developer has released an unboxing video for the “very limited” edition of the game, showing all the contents in full glory, from the 18-inch tall Titan to the game itself.
Titanfall is one of the most highly-anticipated début games we've seen in a long time, and with the exception of last year's monumental release of Grand Theft Auto 5 from Rockstar Games, it's probably the most-hyped title of the past four or five years. If you too cannot wait to get your hands on this title, which releases on March 11th in North America, then we're giving away some invite codes of Titanfall beta for Xbox One. So, if you're in ownership of Microsoft's latest and greatest console, and would like to test the waters of Titanfall before its release, then check out the details after the break!
2014 will undoubtedly be a huge year for online gaming. Individuals interested in online first-person multiplayer action have been waiting patiently for Titanfall to become available, especially after its first magnificent outing at Gamescom last year. Thankfully, that wait is almost over with the latest teasing trailer for the much-anticipated title confirming that the initial beta program will kick off on St. Valentine’s Day, February 14th.
