One of the most hyped games at this year's E3 now has a release date. Titanfall will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on March 11, 2014.
Titanfall is the first game from Respawn Entertainment, a studio founded by the former developers of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series. The game is fully multiplayer, with no single player campaign. It offers traditional first-person shooting gameplay but augments it with wall-running and jumping abilities, as well as giant mechs called titans that players can enter and use in battle.
“Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to 'Titanfall,'” said Vince Zampella, co-founder of Respawn. “The feedback we’re getting from fans around the world is fueling our team as we head towards March and motivating us to deliver an experience that lives up to the hype.”
In addition to the release date, publisher EA today announced a collector's edition bundle of Titanfall. The collector's edition will, of course, come with a statue. This one, however, is a bit more than the ones included in collector's editions of other games. The statue is an 18" "hand-crafted" depiction of an Atlas Titan from the game that is part of an entire diorama with LED lighting. Titanfall's collector's edition also comes with a 190-page art book and a poster of schematics for the Titan depicted in the diorama.
Pre-orders for the collector's edition are now available at "select" retailers, and it turns out that nice-looking diorama is quite pricey. Titanfall: Collector's Edition retails for $250.
