Titanfall 2 is set for release on October 28, 2016. It offers an expanded set of multiplayer modes and, unlike its predecessor, a full single-player campaign. This also marks the first time the franchise has appeared on Sony platforms, as the previous game was limited to Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
The developers indicated prior to the official announcement that it was working on a follow-up to the original Titanfall. On April 11, 2016, EA confirmed Titanfall 2 via a brief teaser. Like the previous game, Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter with a focus on calling down large mech suits called "Titans." Players can jump into these suits for direct control or allow them to fight on their own, under AI control. Unlike the previous game, titans no longer have full, recharging shields by default, so any damage done to them in multiplayer is lasting and permanent. Batteries can be found on enemy titans or other positions on the map. Bringing these to a titan grants them an overshield.
