So what is Titanfall? Well, itís a first person shooter that puts you in the boots of a Pilot running and gunning and taking out the opposition in traditional ways. As you battle it out, you can eventually call in a Titan which you board and then take on the enemy pilots as well as their Titans. Youíll have upgrades youíll earn that better your weapons, Titans and abilities. Youíll also have something called Burn cards which give you some sort advantage from the moment you use it until you die or the end of the match. Whichever comes first. The game is strictly an online multiplayer game only so you will need to have Xbox Live Gold in order to play it. There is no way around this.
There are too modes of play for you to choose from with multiple game styles mixed in. You can choose to do either Campaign Mode or Classic Mode. Again, both of those modes are multiplayer only. In the campaign, youíll team with up to 5 other gamers against 6 other gamers from across the world. There is an IMC and Militia campaign that when completed fully will award you access to all 3 titanís chassis (Atlas, Ogre, Stryder). The campaign wonít take you too long to play through and then you can jump into the Classic Mode.
In Classic Mode youíll compete in a variety of game types: Attrition, Hardpoint Domination, Capture the Flag, Last Titan Standing and Pilot Hunter. You can choose to play only your favorite game type or you can select the Variety mode and the server will place you in into random game types. You can start a party and compete with up to 5 of your friends together on a team or you can jump in by yourself as well.
