Titanfall 2 – New King of FPS

Titanfall 2 has quickly risen through the ranks as one of this generation’s most complete shooters, and now with its new mode Live Fire it further cements itself on top of this competitive genre.

Titanfall 2 shines with its innovative gameplay. It’s fast paced, it’s rewarding, and it’s genuinely fun traversing the many multiplayer maps it offers. Not only is your pilot able to perform insane jumps and fast movements, but you’re given an array of abilities that will take your play style to a whole new level. If you’re worried about how much abilities can turn the tide of a fight then don’t, they are extremely well balanced. They are all fairly powerful and only truly shine when used properly. You will never feel at a disadvantage towards another ability. Which makes when you win those close battles that much more rewarding.

Titans are a whole different beast, but just as fulfilling. Watching your Titan drop down and smash the ground is probably one of the most exciting things you’ll experience in a multiplayer game. Each of the six Titan classes comes with its very own playstyle and set of weapons. You have the ability to fight up close with Ronin, a titan with a sword, or from long distance with Northstar, a titan that has a long range projectile that packs a huge punch. All with finely tuned and well balanced gameplay. You will never feel like you’re at a disadvantage going titan vs titan. Unless you’re up outnumbered, then you might want to start ejecting.

That’s not all that makes this multiplayer so great. Respawn Entertainment is choosing to release any game altering DLC for FREE. That’s right. For zero. You’re getting the full game experience no matter which edition you buy. That means all new maps, all new titans, and all new weapons will be available for EVERYONE as soon as they release. Of course they’ll be releasing some buyable cosmetic items, but those are purely optional.

So far they’ve already released two new maps and even a whole new mode that comes with its own set of maps.

Multiplayer may be the main attraction but that doesn’t mean the single player story is far behind.

You and BT- 7274

Titanfall 2 pits you at the helm of BT-7274 after a failed attack leaves his past pilot, and your commander, dead. With BT-7274 by your side, you become a valuable asset to the Militia and fight to prevent a terrible catastrophe from happening.

Not only is the story engaging but the missions are entertaining and unique. It doesn’t feel like a rehashed version of bot multiplayer. The levels have personality and are a joy to play. There is a world to explore, albeit it is a little small, but it is fun.

It is pretty difficult to point out who really is the best among first-person shooters and usually people point towards Battlefield or Call of Duty, but with Titanfall 2, Respawn has proved it has what it takes to stand at the top. It seems that the other companies have taken notice, Activision is electing to take the next Call of Duty back to its roots in hopes of reclaiming the throne.

You can order Titanfall 2 from Amazon right now for $24.99, or head to your nearest retailer to pick it up.
