With only eight days until giant fighting robots take over our lives, more information has leaked about Titanfall. Reddit user FallenFusion has expanded on the information that NeoGAF user RazorUK was able to dig out of the beta, sharing some exciting details and new screenshots yesterday. For those of you who've missed RazorUK's leaks, we're going to include those below in addition to the new information and images provided by Fusion; this Titanfall leaks round-up will compile all the relevant information about maps, turrets, generations, ziplines, and pilot hunter.
Before we begin, you might also be interested in these other Titanfall articles we've published lately:
Telltale Games recently released the second episode in The Wolf Among Us, Smoke & Mirrors. GamersNexus continues its windy trek through the Telltale adventure series in this review.
I had played through Episode 1, Faith, and was delighted by its gripping storyline, superb visuals, and a dynamic (but buggy) dialogue wheel. Episode 2, Smoke & Mirrors, adheres to its predecessor’s formula and further tests the relationships of Bigby and his Fabletown peers, and although it culminates in another well-devised cliffhanger, it makes me doubt the impact of my actions on future episodes.
Insurgency is a full-fledged multiplayer FPS game based on the Source mod of the same name, Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat. It features a realistic, tactical style of play, but tries to expand accessibility in the new version. The release date for Insurgency (formerly called “Insurgency 2”) was January 22, 2014 and is available on PC now.
Chaos brimmed from Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall servers this weekend as players invited to the beta (which is now open) ventured into the game to try it out. Despite serious initial video issues and other bugs and odd benchmark performance, Titanfall's gameplay can at times be relatively smooth and strategic.
I have a good deal of criticism to dish out in another article, but for now, we'll stick to the tactical discussion. This Titanfall strategy guide will cover Last Titan Standing tips, tricks, and gameplay mechanics to help elevate level of play.
Titanfall's momentous beta launch didn't come without its share of issues -- which certainly doesn't do any favors for EA's reputation. Although the game is still presently in beta and many issues are excusable, the title will launch in a short number of weeks and should be going gold soon.
While we benchmarked Titanfall's PC performance to find the best video cards for the game last night, we ran into a number of screen tearing, stuttering, visual artifacting, V-Sync, mouse lag, black screen, and crash-to-desktop errors that we've attempted to resolve. Some were fixable, others... not so much.
It is very likely that many of these issues will be resolved permanently as driver manufacturers release updates for their devices and as Respawn releases Titanfall updates. In the meantime, though, here's what we do know.
