Vince Zampella, Co-Founder of Respawn Entertainment (and a co-creator of Call of Duty), explains:
Since we revealed the game in June we’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Titanfall. 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.
Promising a “brand-new online experience”, Titanfall combines elite assault pilots and agile (but still heavily armoured) 24-foot titan mechs. Traditional campaign modes are packed with heroic, set-piece moments, and the multiplayer – the game’s key feature – is fluid and fast-paced.
You find yourself in a near-future, dropped into the heart of the conflict between the Militia and the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. Shift back and forth between pilot and titan, do a bit of parkour and wall-running, and attack or escape depending on the situation.
It’s a stunning game, so it’s no surprise the Collector’s Edition is equally stunning. You’ll get an exclusive, collectible 18″ Atlas titan statue, complete with battery-powered LED lighting and its own diorama setting. There’s also a full-size art book and an Atlas titan schematic poster so you can figure out how it all works.
Unfortunately, such a special edition comes with a special price: AU$399.95 / NZ$429.99 – that is, more than half the price you’ll be spending on the Xbox One to play it on.
So – mark your calendars: Titanfall is set to hit Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC from March 13th in Australia, and March 14th in New Zealand.
