The sequel to the 2014 Xbox One and PC game from Electronic Arts, Titanfall, is set to launch just a few days before Halloween.

Releasing Oct. 28 and making a franchise debut on PlayStation 4 (in addition to Xbox One and PC via Origin), Titanfall 2 is a first person shooter is set to build on the foundation developer Respawn established with the first game – fast and fluid gameplay between Pilots and Titans.

“With the original Titanfall, we focused on nailing the gameplay and reinventing the way you move and fight in a first person shooter,” said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment and a Co-Creator of the Call of Duty franchise.  “With Titanfall 2, we’re building on that foundation by introducing a bespoke single player campaign backed by a deeper multiplayer experience that together will once again push the shooter genre forward.”

In single player, Titanfall 2 will deliver a crafted experience that explores the unique bond between man and machine.  Playable offline, the single player campaign in Titanfall 2 will let fans step out onto The Frontier as a Militia rifleman with aspirations of becoming an elite Pilot. Stranded behind enemy lines and facing overwhelming odds, players must team up with a veteran Titan to uphold a mission they were never meant to carry out.  In multiplayer, Respawn is continuing to evolve their best-in-class gameplay to provide a more robust experience that delivers expanded depth and variety that includes six new Titans, deeper Pilot abilities, more customization options, and a robust progression system that EA says "is sure to satisfy fans."

Prior to release, Titanfall 2 will have an open technical test designed to help Respawn ensure a successful launch on October 28.  Fans interested in getting technical test news first can sign up here.
