Titanfall 2 is not only a Battlefield game.
It is also a sci-fi RPG, one that sees players as an alien species called the Titan.
We’ll be in the cockpit of a futuristic Titan and fight the alien race.
That’s right, the game is about a team of human fighters fighting for the fate of the universe, the human race.
“We’re in a universe of alien races, so this is a story that’s very much a continuation of the events that you saw in Titanfall 1,” game director Matt Firor told us.
“There’s a lot of story that we want to tell in terms of how it all comes together.”
We’ve seen a glimpse of the gameplay that’s coming in the form of an upcoming feature trailer.
You’ll be able to play through the story from the beginning, and it will be free-to-play, meaning you can unlock new weapons, gear and vehicles, as well as the ability to pilot a Titan.
There’s no official release date for the game yet, but Firor said the team is aiming for a launch sometime in 2019.
“It will be a big game,” he said.
“The game is bigger than a single player experience.
The player will be on a massive ship, and there’s this huge fight that the game will go on and fight.
It’s the largest space opera that I’ve ever seen.
The idea is to create this epic space opera, with a massive space opera feel to it, and a lot more in the game.”
We’ll see a ton of things in Titan, but there’s a very important thing we can’t spoil yet: The Titans are aliens.
We’re going to see the Titans, but they’re also human.
The developers are hoping to keep players guessing, because there are lots of things that could change in the future.
You’re not the only one who has to fight the Titans.
We haven’t seen a single Titan before.
But you know, this is one of the things we love about this game, and the story is just as compelling as it was in Titan.
“This is a game about a lot that’s not in the story, but this is part of the story,” Firor added.
“You’ll be fighting these different alien races all across the universe.
It really does feel like you’re on the front lines of this epic battle.”
So if you’ve ever wanted to go to a space opera movie, this may be it.
The game’s story has been announced to include more than a dozen planets, including the moon of Mars, and that includes the city of Elysium, which is home to a human-alien alliance.
We don’t know much about what’s in store for the space opera universe, but we’ll be tuning in to learn more about Titanfall2 in the coming weeks.
