IGN publishes the first 15 minutes of gameplay of the single-player campaign for Respawn Entertainment's forthcoming first-person shooter Titanfall 2.
Although Electronic Arts recently disappointed some gamers by announcing its decision to launch Titanfall 2 without an EA Access free trial or discount, fans can at least take solace in the fact that early critical reception of the title has been generally positive so far. As a matter of fact, when it comes to some of the forthcoming release's plethora of new additions, most reviews have praised the game for its ability to hone the choices that the original gave fans, while also incorporating lots of versatile and interesting new gameplay options.
Speaking of fresh additions, Respawn Entertainment gave the forthcoming sequel in its mech-based franchise a full-fledged offline single-player campaign, which has been described as enhancing the multiplayer experience. For those who wish to get a taste of the solo mode's action, IGN has published a video of the first 15 minutes that follow Titanfall 2's tutorial.
As seen in the Titanfall 2 gameplay video from IGN below, there’s a pretty decent setup to be found and the early portions are rather frenzied, just prior to the start of the story. Of course, it's also worth noting that some of the footage has been displayed in previously released trailers, but now fans who watch can have a better understanding of the segments' context. Plus — and perhaps most importantly — the video below should be considered as a spoiler for the beginning of Titanfall 2, so if fans wish to wait until it launches, they should avoid watching it altogether.
Beyond Titanfall 2's single-player campaign, the Respawn Entertainment shooter is also set to contain plenty of multiplayer action for fans who enjoy playing against other gamers online. Naturally, those fans who took part in the title's open beta should expect the majority of the content such as modes, weapons, and maps to remain the same in the final product, save for some tweaks to optimize gameplay.
With Titanfall 2 set to launch in just several days, the developers at Respawn are surely anxious to see how fans will respond to the game, and if their excitement for the title will translate to solid sales. Considering the fact that Nielsen survey recently predicted Titanfall 2 as being one of the most anticipated games of the holiday 2016 season, it's safe to speculate that the shooter will at least put up respectable numbers.
Nevertheless, one can never truly know when it comes to anticipating sales figures for video game releases, especially when the tail-end of this year is chock full of so many other big titles like Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. With this being the case, it will be interesting to see how Titanfall 2 stacks up against its competition when it comes to moving units.
Titanfall 2 is set to release on October 28, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
