Titanfall 2 To Have Single-Player Campaign
Following its omission from the first game, Titanfall 2 will indeed have a single-player campaign!
Speaking in a recent interview with Forbes, lead write Jesse Stern said the following:
“One of the shortcomings of the first game was we just did not have the mechanism to tell everyone ‘here’s who you are, here’s where you are and who’s around you.’ We knew all the answers, we just could not deliver it. So we are doing our best to deliver a vision of grand global colonial warfare retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space.”
In addition to details surrounding a single-player campaign, Stern also revealed that a TV show spinoff is currently in the works at Lionsgate. Stern was not finished, he also promised that Respawn Entertainment, who have been working on the game since 2014, will deliver a multiplayer that will be “even better.” The first Titanfall had its problems, but overall it was a real solid shooter. As a solo player I am very excited for a campaign, and look forward to seeing what Respawn deliver when it releases either at the end of 2016 or early 2017.
A game that is on the much clearer horizon is Trackmania Turbo. Ubisoft‘s fast-racing title has been given an official release date of March 22nd, and will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. Traditionally a PC racer series, Trackmania has a high emphasis on high speed and stunts, making it a lot of fun! There will be over 200 courses, but the mode I’m most excited for is Double Driver: a co-operative mode where two players control the same car! The game will also feature 4 player split-screen, something we don’t often see in console racers anymore! I’m very excited for this game, and you will be too once you watch the below trailer.
Is Red Dead Redemption finally playable on Xbox One? Well that is what various players are reporting over on NeoGAF. The post indicates that a workaround is in place where you can player the game, provided you own the digital version of the game. In addition to Red Dead, it appears that Left 4 Dead, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Castlevania: Sympthony Of The Night are also available. It should be noted that Microsoft has since moved to ruin all our fun by saying that the release was “due to an error” and the games have now been removed. Following this latest leak there something must be going on in the background, right?! One can only hope.
The final news item for today, Daybreak has announced that zombie MMO H1Z1 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One. The big story here though is that the PC version of the game is being split into two games: H1Z1: King of the Kill and H1Z1: Just Survive. King Of The Kill, which is the version that will also appear on consoles, will be a “large-scale, high-intensity” shooter, whereas Just Survive will be the game that PC gamers are familiar with from its time in Early Access. If you have already purchased H1Z1 on PC, you will get both versions of the game when the split happens next week. I’m not sure how I feel about this, especially as a console gamer. I don’t need another zombie shooter game…
