Titanfall has been one of the most talked about video games since its E3 2013 reveal and multiple awards. It has been out for just over two weeks and all indications are that it is selling well, but now we've had a couple of weeks to play it ,was it worth all of the hype? Or is it just your standard multiplayer first person shooter we've seen over and over the past few years? You can read more about Titanfall and what sets it apart from your typical shooter in my review of the PC version of the game.
Activision and Infinity Ward announced that they will be offering a free trial weekend for their latest Call of Duty Ghosts DLC. Beginning on Friday March 21st and ending Monday March 24, Xbox One and Xbox 360 gamers will be able to try out Call of Duty Ghosts Onslaught DLC free of charge. The free trial will include the four new multiplayer maps called BayView, Containment, Fog, and Ignition, the new Maverick weapon as well as the first episode in Extinction Episode 1: Nightfall, which is the first of a four part episodic storyline.
Players will need to own a copy of Call of Duty Ghosts in order to take part in the trail weekend and then download the Onslaught DLC Pack 1 from the in-game store after being signed into Xbox Live. The PC and Playstation platforms will receive a free trial weekend of Onslaught at a later date.
Xbox 360 owners were hit with some disappointing news today when Electronic Arts announced that the Xbox 360 version of it's new first person shooter Titanfall will experience an additional two week delay. The new launch date for the game has been set for April 8th in the US and April 11th in Europe. All three versions of the game were originally scheduled for release on March 17th, but the Xbox 360 version was bumped to March 28 last month and is now getting a second bump into April.
The development of the Xbox 360 version is being handled by a different development company and EA's Patrick Söderlund posted that
"...we see a few things that can be made even better, so we're giving Bluepoint a little more time to do just that and deliver an epic Titanfall experience for Xbox 360 players."While this two week delay is disappointing, it is probably for the best that they spend more time trying to make as good as can be prior to release rather than having to issue hot fixes and patches right out of the gate.
Titanfall for the PC and Xbox One has been out for just over a week and stellar reviews for the game are still pouring in with a average rating on Metacritic of 88/100 it's one of the top reviewed games of the year so far.
