Video game publisher Electronic Arts offers Titanfall 2 fans a Battlefield 1 skin for mechs if they also play the company's World War I first-person shooter.
At this point in time, it's pretty safe to say that a lot of first-person shooter fans are delving into all that Battlefield 1 has to offer since it released last week. With that being the case, should those gamers also be planning on playing Respawn Entertainment's forthcoming Titanfall 2, then they will be privy to an exclusive skin in the mech-centric title thanks to a new cross-promotion courtesy of publisher Electronic Arts.
As seen in the image below, Titanfall 2 fans will get skin for their Titans in the theme of the famous Red Baron, which decks out mechs in a red and white scheme reminiscent of the German ace pilot Manfred Von Richthofen's paint job for his iconic Fokker triplane. Fans who play Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 will have the skin waiting for them in the latter title upon its release date.
The offer of the Red Baron skin for Titans in Titanfall 2 is just the most recent cosmetic to be put into the game. For instance, other skins have also been announced for gaming fans who happen to be customers of Buffalo Wild Wings, Doritos, and Mountain Dew. Furthermore, as far as the promotion between Titanfall 2, the chip company, and the soft drink firm is concerned, it features access to a special 1v1 dueling mode known as Coliseum, which can be accessed by fans via in-game tickets.
Beyond such cosmetic items, it seems as if the critical reception for both Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 have been generally positive as of late. For instance, early reviews for the former have pundits praising Respawn Entertainment's title for its versatility. When it comes to the World War I shooter, most critics are walking away impressed, with reviews applauding DICE's decision to go back in time.
Taking all of this into consideration, with advance reviews lauding both Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1, it seems as if buying both even without the prospect of getting the Red Baron skin would be beneficial for one's gaming library. Not to mention, when Titanfall 2 launches later this week, fans won't have to wait long to jump into the action since the game's day one patch size is surprisingly small.
Of course, with Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 giving fans a glut of gameplay choices ranging from their numerous multiplayer modes and seemingly unique single-player campaigns, a lot of fans may not have enough time to purchase and play through both, choosing to stick with one or the other. Bearing this in mind, it will be interesting to see how the sales figures transpire for both of the sequels in their respective series.
Titanfall 2 is set to launch on October 28, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Battlefield 1 is available now for each of the aforementioned platforms.
