Great news for action title fans as a Titanfall 2 free download hits PS Plus this month for current subscribers of the PlayStation service.
It’s an exciting time each month when waiting to see which new free game will be announced on the PlayStation Store.
Following last month’s excellent releases of Outlast 2 and Nioh, it seems Sony is on a roll of excellent triple-A titles for PS Plus subscribers.
Published by EA and developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall 2 is the sequel to Titanfall the cult hit multiplayer, mech-piloting action title released in 2014.
Being seen as trying to bring back the mech genre onto consoles, Titanfall is widely respected and received over 60 awards and was a critical hit.
Titanfall 2 was released in 2016 with a new single-player campaign added as well as the epic online multiplayer action the previous release was praised for.
While Titanfall 2 was met with a good critical reception it didn’t achieve the commercial success of its predecessor, however this was considered due to competition rather than being a poor game.
The action in the game consists of a first-person style shooter from the inside of a giant mechanical robot called a Titan.
Titans are strong and come with a vast array of weaponry including guns, grenades and blades as well as being able to perform parkour.
The story of Titanfall 2 revolves around a Titan pilot named Jack Cooper and both Cooper and the Titan can be controlled.
As well as the obvious action sequences, specific areas of gameplay in Titanfall 2 also incorporate stealth and puzzles as well as using parkour to reach normally inaccessible areas.
Not wanting to be too easy for players, piloting a Titan in the multiplayer mode requires a Titan meter to be filled by achieving objectives as the pilot and then summoning the Titan which is then deployed from an aerial platform.
Typical multiplayer modes in the game include defense, capture the flag and deathmatches similar to other online games, but they have a Titanfall spin on them.
An untypical feature for an online action game is Titanfall 2’s Networks feature that allows players to form a guild which can help earn more merits, the game’s reward system.
Titanfall has seen a small resurgence thanks to its battle royale spin-off Apex Legends which was released earlier this year.
