Titans Will Fall In Five Months’ Time

18 inches, he wishes

The more astute mathematicians among you will have calculated that this means Titanfall, aka What The Modern Warfare Creators Did Next, is due to arrive in March. March 11 for Americaland, March 13 for mainland Europe and March 14 for this e’er punished isle, to be exact. That’s a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday respectively, you know.

Hopefully a PC release will indeed be simultaneous with the assortment of necks jenny ray shun under-telly boxes; that is EA’s claim for now, but you know how sniffy big publishers can be about PC.

The multiplayer-centric mech-shooter also has a $250 special edition, whose contents you can see above. Apparently that statue has LED lighting in. LEDs are expensive, I bet they constitute almost the entire $200 price difference from the standard version.

Apparently Titanfall is looking pretty tasty. Sadly I haven’t played or seen it myself as yet, because I am a mad shut-in who now only has conversations with his five-month-old baby and thus have been unable to attend any events it’s been at. I did recently feed her in front of Pacific Rim though, so at least she probably knows what a mech is.

    Not a big fan of that mech design… Armored Core 5′s chassis designs are too busy looking for their own good but still look better than this thing. Well, it helps that ACs aren’t played like FPS dudes either.

    Also the collector’s edition with the mech action figure for AC Verdict Day was only 150$ so there…

      my best friend’s step-mother makes $88/hour on the laptop. She has been without work for 10 months but last month her pay was $14500 just working on the laptop for a few hours. this article ……

    Sounds like someone is doing this parenting thing right, 5 months seems appropriate for mechs. Next up: jetpacks.

    This is one that I’ll be watching closely, hoping for PC support to be strong.

    Beware the ides of march….
    Damn, wrong date..

  4. lowprices says:

    I managed to misread the headline as “Titans will fall in love”. I want that game instead.

    Stomping around in mechanical trousers? It’ll never catch on.

      I foresee ‘RPS Hell On’, for one that figurine is degrading to female Robots what with its over developed chest. Don’t get me started on the carcass of her mutilated sister, robot snuff porn.

      I recon that RPS’s frantic e-mails will go unanswered again as publishers PR departments just go ‘oh do fuck off you sackless wankers’, shame on those publishers!

      Edit: Sorry my Lord it appears I have inadvertently invaded your post! *doffs cap, bows* Edit 2: *bows and retreats cap doffed* I’d request an Editorial deletion but I think they would enjoy it too much! I think you gravitas pulled this from the ether and placed it here instead of on the end. Word Press is infallible!

    • Horg says:

      Indeed. Steam powered trousers were perfectly functional for our generation, and I see no reason why they wont do for todays youth!

    • int says:

      Can we stomp away to the moon to find that illusive cheese?

      • Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

        Surely you jest. The moon is made of cheese? Preposterous. It has been scientifically proven that the moon is made of plaster of Paris. The wild rantings of Mr Wallace and a number of pitiable mad colonials aside, no reputable man has ever claimed to set foot on the lunar orb to say otherwise. Not least because the moon is quite literally miles away, and actual moononauts would be crushed to death by the dreadful moonar worms.

    Hahaha hover text FTW.

  7. Ansob says:

    So, any actual information on whether or not this will actually have proper servers that aren’t run at an abysmal ticrate, and whether or not this will be competently-designed and not have 80% of the guns/perks that are completely useless?

  8. Warduke says:

    I’m wondering if this isn’t the next Hawken, a ton of hype by the media and a month after release nobody was talking about it any more.

    • suibhne says:

      Unlikely, given the ex-IW hype and the EA marketing dollars behind it. On the other hand, it could easily end up being the next Medal of Honor – a highly-anticipated new game (or reboot) that ends up being total crap, often talked about but only with recrimination.

    • MrUnimport says:

      Given that this will launch on consoles as well (thus eliminating Hawken’s issues delivering those graphics to less-capable rigs), is heavily marketed from a famous studio, and isn’t going to be F2P, that’s three points in favour of its staying power.

  9. Zekiel says:

    $200 model looks stupid.
    Game looks interesting though.

  10. Omni says:

    I actually love this as a collectors edition, though I’m a sucker for art books and statuettes.
    Don’t even mind the price if I’m honest, though it is on the high side.

    My main issue here is that it’s $250.. or £250 if you’re a British sort of person. Even with UK taxes a $150 markup for us is ridiculous, so I’ll be skipping this on principle at the very least.

    *edit, It seems it’s $299 in the US. So it’s only a moderately absurd ripoff.

  11. chewbaccasdad says:

    Aside from wondering what the specs for this will be, its mooted Origin exclusivity makes me uneasy.

  12. Rukumouru says:

    As good as the game looks, I can’t say I would enjoy it without offline bots. I know it does mix AI with humans, but it’s not the same. I want to fight alone or cooperatively with friends against an entirely AI army.

    Unless this is confirmed, not interested in Titanfall.

  13. Enkinan says:

    Gameplay video seemed pretty darn fun, but Origin.

  14. MrUnimport says:

    Lovely model but I can’t see many people wanting to shell out for it when the game’s quality is as yet unknown.

  15. FRIENDLYUNIT says:

    Alec speaking of punished isles what about Australia (and Oceania in general I guess)? You RPS guys just have to get it into your heads that you are quite successful and have readership in many parts of the world.

  16. stampy says:

    all i want is for this to come out the day after i get my steamos setup going so i can stream this to my laptop, and i dont have to hide in the bedroom.

    oooooh its been so long since i actually wanted a thisll-need-a-real-video-card game.

  17. welverin says:

    For all of EA’s faults, not releasing PC versions of games at the same time as console ones really isn’t one of them, particularly if they say they will.
