Check out our review of Titanfall.

Respawn Entertainment’s Xbox console exclusive Titanfall will be coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on March 11, 2014, as publisher Electronic Arts confirms in a new post on the game’s official website. A release on the same platforms will follow in Europe on March 13, 2014. Respawn finally revealed its mysterious first project at E3 in June 2013, though the team there has likely been working on the game since around the time the studio formed in 2010. 

The announcement post also confirmed the existence of a $250 special edition release for Titanfall. In addition to the game, the package includes an 18-inch Titan statue – Titans are the game’s pilotable mechs – with accompanying “diorama and battery-powered LED lighting,” a full-size, 190-page art book, and a poster-sized schematic of the Atlas Titan. That must be some statue because $250 is at the absolute upper reaches of what Collector’s Edition releases for video games typically cost.

Titanfall has been trailed by praise since it was first revealed. Ryan was a big fan of what he saw back at E3, and subsequent looks have been equally promising. The multiplayer-driven first-person shooter is set in a sci-fi universe where two warring factions trade fire both from behind their guns and from the cockpits of towering Titan mechs. This allows for different pacing and feel depending on how you’re negotiating the world around you. Will you lumber along in a heavily armed and armored war machine, or will you nimbly flit across the battlefield in your jetpack? Either way, you goal is the same: shoot everyone that’s not an ally.
