'Titanfall 2' release date, news: 'Trial By Fire' campaign mode teased


Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming first-person shooter video game, “Titanfall 2” is geared up for release next month. However, the intriguing part of the buildup to the game’s release is the fact that its publisher, Electronic Arts, hasn’t really been in a giving mood when it comes to teasers and trailers for the video game’s single-player mode. Up to this point, it’s been always about the showcase of the multiplayer campaign.

But barely a month before the official release, EA finally took the pleasure of airing several minutes of the game’s “Trial By Fire” mission via YouTube Gaming. See it below:

Based on the teaser above, it certainly looks like this game isn’t like the typical first-person shooter (FPS) games seen these days. The fantasy component is still there (yes, the robots), but it’s a safe bet for FPS game title of the year.

Forbes, meanwhile, took notice of the “Pilots” gameplay trailer, opining that the game looks a lot better but didn’t really feel like “Titanfall,” referring to the original game’s movement that made it a very popular FPS game back in 2014.

The same report also talked about the return of the “Attrition” mode, which was one of the best features of the first game. Similar to the original, it allows players to go up against artificial intelligence (AI) bots in the game, adding another distinct avenue of fun separate from the campaign.

In this new installment, the lead character is a rifleman from the Frontier Militia named Jack Cooper, who happens to carry the dream of becoming a Titan pilot. The campaign centers on Cooper’s struggle to complete a mission that he originally wasn’t commissioned to perform. The game is reportedly designed to showcase that titans have personalities that enable them to interact and forge relationships with their pilots.

“Titanfall 2” is set to launch on Oct. 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
