Fans of Respawn Entertainment’s forthcoming shooter, Titanfall 2, get the chance to watch over three minutes of multiplayer action, as gameplay footage shows up online.
Although this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo has come and gone, fans can still look forward to plenty more news about the event being unpacked in the coming weeks, and details from Electronic Arts’ E3 2016 press conference are no exception. As it happens, thanks to the YouTuber known as Titanfall Legends, a new video featuring Titanfall 2‘s multiplayer has been posted online, showing off even more action from the game.
The clip has been labelled “Multiplayer B-Roll,” so it seems as if EA may have been keeping the footage on standby in case the Respawn Entertainment-developed shooter’s main multiplayer trailer ended up encountering technical issues. Whatever the case may be, per the video’s description, Titanfall Legends received permission from permission from the publisher and from the CEO of Respawn Entertainment, Vince Zampella, to run the Titanfall 2 reel.
As seen in the footage below, a lot of the assets from the Titanfall 2 multiplayer clip can be found in the trailer shown last week by Electronic Arts at E3, but now, instead of being dressed up with intensely affecting music and having quick cuts and edits in place, fans get to see what’s essentially a raw look at what the game’s online experience will be like. There’s a lot of killer gameplay to be had, as the player wields the grappling hook with authority, careening around the map like a gun-wielding Spider-Man with no problem in taking out his enemies with extreme prejudice.
At this point, not only have we been privy to Titanfall 2‘s multiplayer gameplay, but we have also seen the shooter’s single-player campaign, as its trailer leaked right before the title was to be discussed during Electronic Arts’ E3 2016 showcase. Plus, during the Dorito’s Mix event at E3 2016, Respawn Entertainment divulged a brand new sword-wielding Titan class known as Ronin.
Of course, with Titanfall 2 not coming out until later this fall, fans should expect even more content to be revealed in the coming months. After all, the studio is going to need to justify its reveal of the game’s Collector’s Editions ahead of having detailed most of Titanfall 2‘s base game materials and post-launch assets. Not to mention, with the shooter’s multiplayer beta occurring before the official release date, developers will almost certainly provide fans with more information about Titanfall 2 in order to incentivize players to take part in the test.
