E3 2016 - EA has just shown off a quick Titanfall 2 teaser clip ahead of Sunday's huge EA Play showcase, and we deliver a quick recap to get you primed for the reveal.
Although we haven't officially seen Respawn's Titanfall 2 in action just yet, the sequel is shaping up to be quite impressive. The newest teaser clip is just 12 seconds long and doesn't give us too much, but we know quite a bit about Titanfall 2 thanks to recent leaks.
For example, the sequel will feature a a "ton" of new operator abilities like a grappling hook that can be "extensively used" to perform devastating combos. Oh, and titans will have swords and possibly other melee weapons to play around with this time. We also know Titanfall 2 will have more space in its multiplayer maps, offering a bigger playground for dynamic combat sequences. Player count has also been boosted to accommodate the expansive maps.
"I've been sitting on some Titanfall 2 information that was shared with me, and I've finally got the go ahead to post. Titanfall 2 will release in October and the Mountain Dew leak is indeed legitimate. They've added a ton of new pilot abilities including the addition of a grappling hook.
"My source said you can use it quite extensively, for getting into your Titan, aiding free-running, or tactical plays such as pulling enemies while they're midair. The pre-order bonus will be a handgun called the Violator. Multiplayer maps are bigger which I can assume they upped the player count to go along with them," reads the Reddit leaks.
Titanfall 2 will also feature a "grounded, dirty and human" singleplayer campaign this time around, and is set to release just two weeks after Battlefield 1's October 21 launch. Although Titanfall 2 will release very close to Battlefield 1, EA is confident that the shooters won't "cannibalize" each other, promising that the FPS games will cater to different audiences.
EA is set to showcase Titanfall 2 during the EA Play conference on Sunday, June 12 at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST. We'll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest coverage at E3.
