Titanfall Will Include More Than Just Mechs (SPOILERS)
Written By
View author's profile

Titanfall is a game in which mechs fight mechs, men (and women) fight mechs, and men fight men (or women), and [SPOILER ALERT] there's monsters too. (Eh?) That's according to pages in The Art of Titanfall book, which is set to fly onto bookstore shelves on February 25th. Tucked within the pages of the tome, are concept paintings of a variety of beasties set to feature in the game.

Apparently the monsters in question "will walk or fly around levels harmlessly until people interfere. Others will attack when you just stare at them." That potentially means that Titanfall's battle between the IMC and Militia could be the tip of the iceberg, with winged creatures, four-legged beasts and all manner of vicious fauna possibly getting involved. You can see more in the IGN video below.

As well as the startling revelation that Titanfall will include monsters, The Art of Titanfall also includes details on maps, weapons and even vehicles, such as the Gorilla Tank and Drones. Maps include Colony, Boneyard, Corporate, Overlook, Nexus, Airbase, Outpost 207 and Lagoon, with each boasting its very ow backstory and origins. There's even mention of other planets, including the "red giant" Demeter, an IMC stronghold used as a refuelling station for long-distance jumps.

Weapons mentioned include the Arc Cannon, which can fire lightning at multiple targets, the Rail Gun, able to shoot high-damage plasma bolts, and the Avenger, which looks like a hefty chaingun. There's more to find out in the video, but obviosly, be wary of spoilers.

In case you've been living under a rock, Titanfall's beta is in full swing, and is open to everyone on Xbox One. Titanfall will be out on March 11th in North America and March 14th in Europe.

Better have Dinosaurs. Battlefield did ok playing along but they should have added them. If Titanfall gets dinosaurs, it's game over.

And the fact that creatures may be map dependant. Could you imagine a scenario where some big ass monsters erupts from a swamp and both sides have to pause their fighting to take this thing down!?!? Then after it was down, normal match would resume?! damn that would be awesome.

I watched pacific rim recently and thought to myself how amazing it would be to have monsters in titanfall. I imagine it will be tied to the story somehow.

If it does contain monsters that is a relatively major hidden detail which could win over pr piss off many people. I like the idea personally, similar to Dota 2 with farming jungle monsters.

Had 2 more ps4 trade - ins at my store today. Both bought xbox one and pre ordered titanfall that's a total of 10 people that came in and done this already. I can't wait for this beast of a game to come out. Haven't been this excited for a fps since borderlands!

I asked 2 of those people that why trade in there ps4 for xbox one. One said... there's no good multiplayer games, killzone sucks and i don't like call of duty...

@14 - I didn't giggle, but there was a mile-wide grin on my face. I also can't get enough of hearing that "Standby for Titanfall" line - it's just a cool phrase.

If xbox one actually had games or games coming out titanfall wouldn't sell half of what it will which i still don't think will be much

I've got to admit, I wasn't too fussed about this game, despite it looking pretty good, as I just assumed it was going to be CoD with guns but I think they have taken what made the original CoD games good and changed the formula, a lot! Pre-ordered it after playing the beta.

Would be cool if we could co-op a horde mode against endless waves of the monsters (I hate when there's a horde mode that only has 10-20 waves, looking at u plants vs zombies)

@4 I agree with you it would be better with a solid single player campaign. I just dont't see paying $60 for an overhyped MP game with a side story. I tend to enjoy games based on the story rather then slapping together a capture the flag mode with robots and monsters. I admit that it was fun playing the beta and seeing the game run on the Xbox one, but that lasted about 2 hrs and I was ready to move on to something else. If they release it for half the price then in might invest in it, until then March is South Park month for me.

I was still on the fence about this after playing the beta. Just thought that this could get boring quickly. Add in Monsters and interacting with the environment (monsters) to mix things up. I am now sold.

@26 where can they go now with fps sp campaigns? we've had world wars, nuclear wars, invasions,zombies Surely we're crying out for a decent mp fps with the full focus been on team work not just run and gun.

i dont think we've seen a fraction of what Titan Fall has to offer just from the beta,.So many people complaining that it wasn't what they expected. It was a beta not a demo intended to sell the game.And even though i love BF the stability of the servers made a joke out of BF servers.

I have mixed feelings about no campaign. On one hand, It's inclusion would be more bang for your buck; on the other hand, why should they take time and resources away from the games main selling point to a generic, short campaign some won't even bother playing. Unlike BF4 and CoD, which didn't add too much to the multiplayer because they bothered to make a SP.

@28 They could do their own thing. Being a FPS with mechs + infantry in itself is already pretty new and unique.

I would really be excited for this game had they put a campaign in it. But now I don't know if I'll ever get it. I would say I'd get it when it goes down to $20 or so, but there probably won't be much people playing then.
I've said this once before, but I think this game should really be $40 at launch. With such a small amount of content, I wouldn't pay for anything more.

@24. The burn cards are stupid. I only used them once & found them useless. With them being a one time use item I would rather just play the game & not think about them. They are a mostly useless feature that I will not be using unless there are achievements tied to them.

This is the game I got my XboxOne for.. PS4 wont be on for a while when this launches..

Although, I'm not sure about 'monsters'.. I've played a lot of great games that kinda went downhill once monsters came into the mix... the original Far Cry for one... (not to say it wasn't awesome still)

Can't wait to hear about how glitchy and broken this game will be on release day. EA and shitty releases go hand in hand. Don't be disappointed people.
