OverviewOverview

Titanfall and Titanfall 2 are a movement-shooting game where players control mechanical Titans and their pilots, who are agile and equipped with a variety of weapons and abilities ranging from wall-running to invisibility. This makes it a game that focuses on movement and the tactical use of piloting the mechs.

Set in a science fiction universe, the single-player campaign follows one pilot's quest to stop the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) from launching a super weapon that is threatening to destroy his home planet Harmony.

Other than the campaign there is also an online mode where teams fight to complete objectives with the assistance of computer controlled grunts that aid the player and add a war-like atmosphere to the game.

Unlike in the campaign where guns and gadgets are found around the map and as you progress the story, in the online mode you level up after each match or round depending on how well you did unlocking new titans, gadgets and weapons.

Characters are equipped with a variety of different weapons, including pistols, rifles and rocket launchers. Human characters will fall down with a moderate blood effect when they are shot.
