Today the folks at Respawn Entertainment have let it be known that quite a few changes are coming to Titanfall for Xbox One, PC, and Xbox 360 builds. This update brings on Private Matches in Beta mode, Party Colors, Auto-Titan Color in Obituary, Menu Changes, Game Version notes on Main Menu, and a number of Game Balance Changes. One massive set of bug fixes are in the mix as well.
Today Stephen Barton gets his day in the sun once again as the full soundtrack for Titanfall is released to several digital format stores. This album contains 18 tracks from the game, including those both inside multiplayer storyline modes and multiplayer maps, menus, and trailers.
PC and Xbox One gamers have been able to play Titanfall for several weeks now. Gamers that wanted Titanfall on the Xbox 360 have been waiting to get into the game on their console. The Xbox 360 version of the game has been delayed, but the official launch is set for tomorrow. Details of the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall have been available already, in fact we offered up a lot of details on the game a few days ago.
This afternoon alerts have been sent out to users of the game Titanfall for Xbox One and PC. This alert shows that Xbox Live members and those playing Titanfall through Origin are having a tough time connecting to games - the whole lot is connected through one system, as it were, working with Windows Azure.
The final first-wave version of Titanfall is nearly here. It’s been confirmed and re-confirmed several times at this point, finally landing on the 8th of April, and today those responsible for its development are speaking up. What we’re to understand this week is that the final presentation is really a looker - despite technical limitations.
While you may not find the Titanfall Matchmaking System to be perfect, there’s a new "Improved Matchmaking Beta" system out today for Titanfall players of all types. You’ll find this option directly below the rest of the "Classic" modes of gameplay, connected (for now) to Attrition alone. This system is - make sure you remember this - in BETA mode for now, so don’t expect too much magic right off the bat.
Having had some great response to our initial investigation into the creation of the 2-story-tall Titan touring Berlin this gaming season, we followed up with the makers at Daniel’s Wood Land. The second model - and perhaps the more popular here in the USA since it's made several appearances stateside - is the "Reacher". This model is a bit shorter than the other due to its aim: capturing pilots for photo opportunities.
In a move that’s all too rare in our modern profit-by-download world of DLC packs for games, Respawn Entertainment has revealed that they’ll be pushing new game modes to Titanfall for free. Sitting aside from the normal DLC packs - which will cost cash - EA Games and Respawn Entertainment will be sending up downloads for a variety of game modes to add to the Classic Modes list already in order. This news comes not long after the first big patch was made to Titanfall this past weekend.
The one person benefitting from ‘price wars’ is you, the end consumer, which is why we are happy to report that both Walmart and Best Buy are reportedly selling Microsoft’s Xbox One and Titanfall for $450; a nifty $50 slashed off the combined price of both these individually purchased products. Yes, the bundle is sweet but may not give Sony’s PlayStation 4 sleepless nights; read more to find out why.
It should be seen as no mistake that the Xbox One-exclusive game Titanfall is being promoted with a fervor more intense than essentially any other game in this generation of gaming consoles so far. This week the third of three 8-bit games for the Titanfall "8-BIT IS BETTER WITH A TITAN" collection is released, there’s free magazines and contests being held at Wal-mart, and a price-matching war is being waged at Best Buy. Do you think Microsoft wants this game to be a hero for their system?
This week at GDC 2014, NVIDIA announced that they were working with Respawn Entertainment to bring on a number of GameWorks-centric enhancements to Titanfall in the immediate future. While many top-tier games work with NVIDIA before the release of their titles, it would appear that this move is happening after-the-fact. Better late than never - this release will have upgrades that bring what NVIDIA promises will be "the best game experience possible" in all arenas.
