Not bad for a newbie.

EA’s impressive action game Titanfall has nabbed six nominations in the Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2013 , the most ever for a single title.

A sci-fi shooter that pits soldiers against mechs in frantic online firefights, Titanfall is the debut game from Respawn Entertainment, the studio founded by former Call of Duty makers Vince Zampella and Jason West. Due out in 2014, the game earned noms in a half dozen categories, including Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best PC Game, Best Action Game and Best Online Multiplayer.

Titanfall will also duke it out against Activision’s Destiny, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, the Oculus Rift VR Headset and the PlayStation 4 console for the coveted Best of Show award.
