From Respawn Entertainment comes Titanfall, a first-person shooter with jet-packs and giant battlemechs.
Check out Leah Jackson's preview for more:
The demo began with our squad jumping out of an aerial transport ship in an effort to protect the Red Eye capital ship while it refueled. In order to protect the ship, we had to capture and hold up to three different points from the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC).
To help out in the fight, players can call down Titans about a minute after the match begins. Once on the field, Titans add a new element of gameplay. If a player chooses to hop in to a Titan, they'll become a death machine.
Titans aren't the clunky mechs you might be used to. Instead, they're agile and extremely quick, on top of being equipped with amazing amounts of firepower. Along with being able to punch and stomp enemies with massive force, they can use magnetic powers to catch bullets midair and send them flying back at their opponents, or fire missiles that deal tremendous damage. Additionally, when players choose to hop out of their Titan for one reason or another, the Titan will automatically go on guard duty and defend their pilot from harm.
