There will be an improved single-player campaign
One of the biggest criticisms of the first Titanfall was the game’s disappointing story mode. Instead of having missions built specifically for a single-player, story-driven experience, Titanfall’s campaign simply slapped character dialogue over AI matches in multiplayer maps. Players were pretty unsatsified.
For Titanfall 2, it seems that Respawn has decided to create a single-player campaign that might focus on more traditional FPS storytelling. Lead Writer Jesse Stern says that the campaign will be a “vision of grand global colonial warfare, retelling the story of the American Revolution and the American Civil War in space” with a setting that is “grounded, dirty, human, and real.” Titanfall 2 may better explain the conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia, two groups who are fighting for resources in the furthest reaches of explored space. Now we might have a reason to pay attention to the NPCs talking in our ears.
Titanfall 2 is dropping its Microsoft exclusivity, which was assumed would happen when the developers started talking about PS4 support for the sequel soon after Titanfall’s launch. The sequel will be hitting Xbox One, PS4, and PC giving all gamers on the newest platforms a chance to smash their opponents in a heavily armored, walking tank.
