Titanfall Drops the Official Gameplay Launch Trailer

Stand by for the official Titanfall gameplay launch trailer!

It’s not just a launch trailer, and it’s not just a gameplay trailer – it’s a gameplay launch trailer! Oh, but let’s not quibble about semantics. Let’s just take a moment to enjoy this Titanfall trailer, which while perhaps a tad melodramatic is still quite a bit of fun to watch.

It might be my imagination, but to my eye the overwrought dialog, slo-mo explosions, dramatic music, “Fight As One,” acrobatic fast cuts and of course, bullets, explosions and people being unpleasant with one another as far as the eye can see are throwing off a powerful Call of Duty vibe. I’m no CoD veteran but I’ve seen a lot of trailers in my time and if I didn’t know better I might think this was one for Call of Duty: Future Warfare or somesuch.

And yes, I know that the head guys at Respawn were the head guys at Infinity Ward so a certain degree of similarity isn’t all that surprising, and I’m not saying it’s a bad thing at all – in fact, I think it’s looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Punching people in the face with a robot that’s bigger than a house? Sign me up!

I am confused about one thing, though: If you’re inside a giant fighting robot packing a gun the size of a Greyhound bus, why would you ever get out?

Titanfall launches on March 11 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
