Old habits are no doubt hard to break. Whether it’s not sitting up so late, eating fewer carbs, or trying to unlearn things that have been drilled into your mind from countless hours with traditional FPS games. The upcoming Titanfall looks to flip the script, and Microsoft is bringing us several handy tips to help you be successful in their upcoming title.
This insider’s guide comes from several of those on the ground floor of Titanfall’s development. For example; Joel Emslie (who is Lead Artist) suggests that you need to adopt a “stick and move” attitude. “One of the things that gets me killed in “Titanfall” that I've done in past shooters that I had to break is don't fire more than 3 times from the same spot. Always change your positions, always shift your fire.” He instructs.
The unique aspect of Titanfall is that it combines on the ground shooter elements with Pacific Rim style mechs (albeit on a smaller scale). Depending on your class, you’ll have access to different dynamics that will change the play in the field (and also force you to rethink your old strategies). EA Community Manager Mathew Everett gives a perfect example of this, as taking the stairs in this game is something you’d simply never do! “With the verticality of the game, you want to get up high. If you're going down hallways, you're just going to get shot. Someone's going to come up behind you, from the side of you, wherever. They're going to get you. Avoid stairways." Says Everett.
Titanfall hits the Xbox One and 360 next month.
