This launch trailer will help you prepare for Titanfall

Posted on March 4, 2014 AT 11:10am

Exactly one week before it’s scheduled to hit store shelves, EA and Respawn Entertainment’s massively anticipated FPS Titanfall has gotten its launch trailer.

The two-minute spot features a few glimpses of story beats from the campaign multiplayer mode, which strings together competitive matches with narrative cutscenes, along with a whole lot of slickly edited footage of actual robot-riding, jetpacking, bullet-slinging gameplay.

I’ve got to say, I’m not usually a sucker for overblown videogame trailers with pounding, Hans Zimmer–esque music, but this one actually gave me chills. I figure it’s because, unlike your basic Call of Duty or Battlefield trailer, none of the insane moments on display here are predetermined, scripted story beats. In Titanfall, all those crazy acrobatics and mid-air missile dodges are actual gameplay maneuvers that you’ll be able to pull off yourself. There’s something admirably old fashioned in that.

Titanfall is due out on Xbox One and PC on Tuesday, March 11. An Xbox 360 version will follow on March 25.
