Titanfall 2 gets a new E3 2016 teaser video ahead of its gameplay debut, while details of two collector’s editions for the game reportedly leak online.
Back in April, EA and Respawn Entertainment finally gave fans a brief teaser trailer as the first look at Titanfall 2. The trailer, which featured a still-burning crash site and a titan that appeared to be wielding an electrified sword, got everybody talking and fans were champing at the bit to know more.
Unfortunately, EA and Respawn have opted to let fans’ imaginations and hopes for the game run wild, with the two companies waiting to debut Titanfall 2’s first gameplay footage at E3 2016. That wait for gameplay footage will soon be over, though, and to get everybody even more hyped up, a Titanfall 2 E3 teaser video has been released.

The promo video offers just a quick glimpse of what fans can expect to see during EA’s E3 press conference this Sunday. It looks like fans will finally get some answers regarding the crash site from that initial announcement trailer, with the E3 teaser showing an escape pod hurtling through the sky, on fire. Whoever is inside it had better brace for impact. Moreover, the titan at the end of the teaser appears to be clenching its fist, as though it is preparing for battle, so hopefully the full-length gameplay video will also include a look at the rumored wall-running titans and the new grappling hook.
But gameplay footage isn’t the only Titanfall 2 reveal expect to come out of E3 2016, as it is also being reported that EA may reveal two different collector’s editions for the game as well. Polish retailer Ultima.pl listed both the Titanfall 2 Standard Collector’s Edition, as well as the Uber Collector’s Edition. Alhough the listings have been removed, images of the two editions were captured by a member of the Titanfall subreddit.
The images and the listings suggest that players will be able to bag themselves a light-up pilot bust, a custom Shemagh scarf, memorial patches, a replica pilot helmet (with tactical accessories), and other memorabilia. It’s unclear how much each edition will cost, but given the content and the fact that the original Titanfall collector’s edition was $250, it’s unlikely that these Titanfall 2 packages will come cheap.
Also expected at E3 is a formal announcement about Titanfall 2‘s official launch date. Although EA CFO Blake Jorgensen previously revealed that Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 will have release dates three weeks apart, a specific date for Titanfall 2 wasn’t given and fans will surely be glad to know the exact time that they can get their hands on the game.
Titanfall 2 will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
