Blocktober: a beautiful insight into how game worlds are built

Interested in how the games sausage gets made? Yes? Then you need to be following Blocktober. No? Then you need to be following Blocktober. It's a hashtag - no, come back - on Twitter this month, at which level designers on games big, small and yowza, really big are showing off what their creations looked like before artists and graphics programmers went and covered up…

No Titanfall 2 Season Pass, No “Hidden Costs”
“All Maps & Modes Will Be Free”, Say Respawn

It's a sign of how quickly expectations change that Respawn Entertainment's announcement that Titanfall 2 [official site] will not have a Season Pass for post-release content is something of a surprise. The new normal for big releases, particularly those with multiplayer, seems to include a pass that costs as much as the base game, promising oodles of extra maps, modes, and other DLC bits and…

Robot Buddies And Space Adventures: Titanfall 2’s Campaign

At a recent gaming convention, I had a brief conversation with someone who described Titanfall as a "dead franchise". That seemed harsh, given that there has only been one Titanfall game, which was fairly well-received even if it didn't set the world on fire. That said, I barely played the first game at all but that's mainly because I'm not a big fan of multiplayer…

Meet Titanfall 2’s New Titans

Respawn has rolled out its entire titan roster for Titanfall 2 [official site], giving us a look at all six mechs in action in a new trailer. It looks like there's something there for everyone, as all of the giant, stompy robots have unique abilities and weapons to cater to individual play-styles. There are jet-packs, ample lasers, and raw fire, to name just a few…

Titanfall Devs Announce Mysterious Star Wars Game

Respawn Entertainment are making a Star Wars game with Electronic Arts, the Titanfall developers announced today. They say their Star Wars game will be "a third-person action/adventure game" and... that's it. That's all. That's yer lot. Will players be a Jedi, a Naughty Jedi, or perhaps even one of those famous Star Wars morally ambiguous characters like a Ferengi? Dunno, man.

Robargain Bucket: Titanfall’s Season Pass Is Free

Titanfall was a pretty good multiplayer shooty-bang game, most especially because it made playing as a squishy little human as exciting as playing as massive stompy roboguy. Unfortunately, there just wasn't all that much of it, and what there was got a little obfuscated by too many menus and too much waiting. As such, Titanfall doesn't appear to be thriving. Maybe it's too late in…

Co-bot: Titanfall Adding Co-op Survival

A co-op wave survival mode is coming to Titanfall tomorrow in its next big update, Respawn have announced. With that basic news out the way, let's focus on a tiny small bit. When players die in Frontier Defense mode, they don't sit around idly in spectator mode like in many games. Nope, they'll be circling above the battlefield in a chopper, raining inaccurate fire down…

Titanfall Without The Titans: A New Humans-only Mode

Titans are fairly central to Titanfall. They're right there in the name--that's what the game calls it when your honking great mechs plummet from orbit to the battlefield. I actually preferred the plain old manshooting though, darting about, double-jumping, and wall-running as a regular supersoldier with a jetpack. Well gosh golly, the next Titanfall update will introduce a new mode with simple 8v8 manfights, no…

Free Sneaking: Dishonored’s Steam Weekend Trial

You could finish Dishonored for free this weekend. It's free to play on Steam until 9 o'clock on Sunday evening, which certainly gives enough time to zip through and stab everyone in the neck. You would, of course, be a monster--not just for the reckless murder, but for missing some of the finest first-person sneaking of recent years. No, unless you have nowt going on,…

Whaddya Buyin’? Titanfall’s Black Market And Second DLC

Much like Barney and his beatings quota, I am way behind on giant stompy robot explosion-fests. Titanfall has a good shot for my game of the year if I ever find the time to actually play it again. Most likely everyone left on PC at this point are hyper-elite maniacs with actual cybernetic implants to control the game with their thoughts. At least we'll all be…

Your Titan, Sir: Titanfall Adding New Modes And Butler Voice

"Mm, yes, that's a sensible change," I mutter, reading over the next Titanfall patch notes. "Oh ho! And matchmaking did indeed need improving too. And how delightful: customisation options for your robot including decals and a snooty English butler voice named Jeeves. I do certainly enjoy customisation in games. I'm not sure about those shotgun changes mind. But yes, it's a solid patch: new features,…

Trialfall: Origin Kicks Off Free Timed Trials With Titanfall

According to Origin, I have played Titanfall for three hours. I enjoyed those three hours but look, the world has so many other video games, and I feel antsy staying indoors on a sunny day, and Titanfall's giant revolver is so far down the unlock line I couldn't bear to be apart from it. It is certainly worth a try, though, especially as it'll be…

Flag Returned: Respawn Putting CTF Back In Titanfall

Graham doesn't get mad. If you cut him, he will bleed forgiveness, understanding, and reassuring smiles. Titanfall made Graham mad - not because it's bad (he adores it), but because it took something from him. His favorite game mode. And he wasn't alone. When Respawn realized two Titanfall modes, Capture The Flag and Pilot Hunter, had issues, they outright removed them from regular rotation instead…

CTF WTF: Titanfall Cuts Game Modes From PC Version

When Titanfall came out back in March, I recommended it mostly on the strength of its Capture the Flag mode. I now retract that recommendation. Developers Respawn Entertainment have removed the ability to play both Capture the Flag and Pilot Hunter modes on PC, except through the Variety option (which picks your mode at random) or Private Match beta (which pretty much requires that you…

Into The Woods: Titanfall’s ‘Expedition’ DLC Video-ed

Titanfall is getting content of a most downloadable sort, and we've already shown you still images of Expedition, as it's known, in hyper-peaceful quadrotantric un-action. What happens, though, when images spring to life, unaided by the hand of man or puppet strings or even sorcery? What then? Well, that's how trailers are born, and there's one below. It's all about maps, which I was shocked…

Bomb Voyage: Titanfall Expedition DLC Due This Month

Three contentious subjects: EA-published first-person shooters; DLC packs for multiplayer games; and news stories about little more than screenshots. But in this instance I'm willing to look deeper than my own initial feelings about all three of those. This is like when you take three foods that don't taste that great but maybe cover each of them with cheese, to trick yourself into eating them.…

Lotta Bots: All Titanfall Updates Except Maps To Be Free

Are the best things in life free? Are they really? I don't know, but I do know that giant-robot-related things are pretty darn cool, and those are going to be free from now until the end of time. Well, Titanfall time. Respawn's laid out its update roadmap, promising more information, regular tweaks and additions, new modes, and free everything - except for map packs. That's a…

Titan Was Alone: Titanfall Finally Adds Private Matches

"Privacy? Privacy is dead!" say the cynicism-sick portions of the peanut gallery referring to the modern state of surveillance and not really shooty shooty bang bang games about giant robots at all. But if, for the sake of argument, they were upset about the multiplayer-only Titanfall's bizarre lack of multiplayer options, they'd now have one less thing to complain about. Titanfall's latest patch adds in…

Finally: Respawn Is Improving Titanfall’s Matchmaking

I like Titanfall, Alec likes Titanfall, Graham likes Titanfall, and everyone else at RPS does too because Graham is our managing editor and he manages everything, including our opinions. But there is one thing that none of us particularly like, and that is the matchmaking. It's breezy yet haphazard, selecting teams based on startlingly few skill commonalities and providing almost nothing in the way of…

Cheat In Titanfall? Then You Will Only Play With Cheaters

I do so enjoy it when game developers get creative with their anti-cheat solutions. Related: I would not recommend that you try cheating in shiny new stomp-o-blaster Titanfall. On one truck-sized, pilot-snatching hand, you'll still be able to play the game, but you'll find yourself surrounded by some rather... unsavory company. Namely, fellow cheaters. Sounds like a recipe for infuriation, frustration, and humiliation if I've ever…
