The biggest game on the Xbox One radar just got a release date.
Titanfall, the highly-anticipated mech shooter from EA and Respawn Entertainment, will land on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on March 11 of next year, EA announced Tuesday.
“Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Titanfall,” Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said in a press release. “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.”
And make no mistake, there’s a LOT of hype for Titanfall. We’re partly to blame for that -- the game snagged our Best of Show award from E3 earlier this year -- though it also took home a record 6 honors from the Game Critics Awards and roughly 70 more from other outlets. Why all the fuss? Titanfall blends a blazingly fast first-person shooter with a giant mech game, letting players nimbly walljump their way in and out of controllable titans. It’s exhilarating stuff that stands out from the wealth of shooter franchises that have dominated the genre for the past several years.
EA also revealed a super fancy Collector’s Edition of Titanfall, which packs a copy of the game, an 18” Atlas titan statue with battery-powered LED lights, an art book and a poster-sized schematic of the Atlas for a hefty $250. Hope you have a titan-sized checking account.
