Respawn Entertainment Unveils Titanfall
The Visionaries that Defined Gaming for a Generation are Back …
Ready to Do it All Again
Game Coming Exclusively to the Xbox Platform — Xbox One and Xbox 360
— and PC in 2014
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and independent videogame developer
Respawn Entertainment today revealed the world debut of Titanfall™,
the studio's inaugural title. Crafted by one of the co-creators of Call
of Duty and other key developers behind the Call of Duty
franchise, Titanfall is among the most highly anticipated of E3
2013, having been shrouded in mystery for nearly three years. The
visionaries at Respawn have drawn inspiration from their proven
experience in first-person action gaming, and are building on that
pedigree by taking a new approach to game design and creating an all-new
universe with Titanfall. The game is entirely multiplayer, in a
new experience that combines fast-paced multiplayer action with the
heroic set piece moments traditionally found in campaign mode. Set in a
distant frontier torn apart by war, players will have the freedom to
switch between fighting as elite assault Pilots or agile, heavily
armored, 24-foot tall Titans. To see the announcement
trailer for Titanfall, please visit the game's
official web site www.titanfall.com.
"It's an exciting time in the industry and it feels like the perfect
time to be unveiling Titanfall," said Vince Zampella, a
Co-Creator of Call of Duty and Co-Founder of Respawn
Entertainment. "Our passion at Respawn is games and we are focused on
bringing something exciting to kick off the next generation of software."
The universe of Titanfall juxtaposes small vs. giant, natural vs.
industrial and man vs. machine. The game drops players into a conflict
between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia
as elite Pilots. With the ability to shift back and forth between pilot
and Titan, players will have the freedom to change tactics on the fly,
attacking or escaping depending on the situation. Titanfall Game
Director Steve Fukuda added, "In addition to infusing the multiplayer
experience with cinematic flavor, we've been rethinking fundamental
combat and movement in the genre. Titanfall is unique in the way
that it places equal emphasis on two drastically different and new ways
to move and fight in a first-person shooter. The intersection of the two
is a big part of what give Titanfall its iconic identity."
Available spring 2014, Titanfall will be available for Xbox One®,
the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PC and
Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft The Xbox 360
version of Titanfall is in development at an external development
studio with support from Respawn. For more information on the game,
