Xbox One owners are getting a second chance to jump into EA and Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall if they didn't already do so when the game launched back in March. Dedicated fans are most likely still stepping on one another in their Titans, and enjoying the post-launch DLC, but new players can quickly join in on all the fun thanks to the announcement (and release) of the Titanfall: Deluxe Edition.
As gamers may have already guessed, the deluxe edition comes packed with all three DLC packs, including Expedition, Frontier’s Edge and IMC Rising. Across those three packs, a total of 12 maps have been added, as well as new game modes like the four player co-op mode Frontier Defense; ranked play; the ability to further customize titans, and the Black Market, which allows players to buy/sell Burn Cards and purchase new Titan insignias. Readers can get a better look at all of the new modes/features in the video above.
In the post on the Titanfall website that initially revealed the game's deluxe edition, EA and Respawn also state that the game has become the best-selling new IP on the Xbox One. With this second release, both new and veteran players alike can parkour their way around the various maps, provided that potential new players haven't been drawn into Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which has similar fast-paced movement, albeit without the giant mechs. The latter may be a huge decided factor for some.
"All this great content combined in one package means there has never been a better time to feel the rush of Titanfall and the thrill of dropping your first titan on the battlefield...The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights."
Titanfall: Deluxe Edition is out now for PC via Origin for $39.99. It'll come to the Xbox One through Xbox Live on November 25, 2014 as a digital-only download.
A reason for the week gap between releases wasn't given, though it could be to keep servers from being overworked due to the potentially new players coming in. If that is actually the case, it'd be a good move by EA, considering the server issues other games have been having.
