Titanfall’s list of Titan, Pilot weapons revealed
Respawn's upcoming mech shooter Titanfall has already gained some respectful ground among fans and big names in the industry with more new details about the game arriving almost every day. Case in point, today, we learned a bit more about the armaments gamers can use to blast their opponents sky high.
As reported by Gamingbolt, the in-game Pilots will start with an R-101, Satchel, Sidewinder AT-SMR, Smart Pistol, Data Knife, Archer, Eva-8 and Frag Grenade among a few of their weapons. The Titans, on the other hand, will have the chance to utilize an even greater fire power with their weapons including the likes of a 40mm cannon, Arc Cannon (expected to shoot arcs of lightning at enemies), Rocket Launcher and the X0-16, a heavy bullet rifle.
Additionally, a brand new gameplay video has been released for Titanfall (seen below) that has a close resemblance with what was shown during the game's PAX Prime 2013 gameplay demo. The video, according to Gaming Blend, "hammers in how varied the playstyles are and that the game seems to reward players using different kinds of playstyles. One of my biggest gripes with Call of Duty is that if you're not good at running and gunning and getting blink-and-you-miss-it kills, you're not going to win."
"Titanfall actually falls closer to the line of Battlefield than it does Call of Duty, and this will certainly help to give it a form of identity to not only thwart the King of FPS titles, but to also separate it every-so-slightly from the rest of the herd," the reports states.
This new information comes after EA's Frank Gibeau confirmed earlier that there is no special reason why EA snubbed Sony by making Titanfall a Xbox exclusive, calling it just "business."
Gibeau called EA's relationship with Sony "very good," while also stating, "We're changing nothing in our policy about being platform-agnostic. One of the things that struck me this week is how a tactical deal with one of our platform partners has been blown out and perceived as strategic tilt - that's a messaging error on our part. There is no strategic tilt," as reported via CVG.
Titanfall is set to release for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in Spring next year. Check out the video below.
