Titanfall 3 is not in works, confirms Respawn Entertainment’s head

Titanfall 3

Apex Legends has officially gone down as one of gaming’s biggest success stories. In its release month alone, Respawn confirmed over 50 million players had already played it. Given its popularity, it’s natural to assume Respawn would be developing another title. But according to Respawn’s head, if that is the case, it won’t be Titanfall 3.

In an interview with IGN, studio director Vince Zampella shut down any suggestion of Titanfall 3 being in development. Simply, Zampella stated “There’s nothing currently in development,” but did acknowledge that Titanfall is “always there,” to think about.

The future of Titanfall 3

Zampella continued on to confirm that even though it’s not in the works, he is still interested. He envisions some kind of “resurrection,” of the franchise which hasn’t had a new entry since 2016. Despite once being Respawn’s signature series, it has long since played second fiddle to Apex.

Interestingly, Zampella claims that Electronic Arts don’t have a negative impact on the Titanfall devs. Instead, the publisher plays a “hands-off,” role and leaves Respawn to the creative stuff. Of course, this should be taken with a grain of salt. In 2017 EA purchased Respawn Entertainment outright. Given that he’s employed by them, Zampella isn’t going to be overly critical.

Titanfall

Finally, both Zampella and an unnamed EA spokesperson confirmed that fans should expect plenty from Respawn at the upcoming EA Play. Even if that’s not Titanfall 3, something is still clearly planned. Originally scheduled for the cancelled E3, EA Play has since been moved to June 11. Viewers will be able to tune into EA.com at 4 PM ET for the full event.

As for what you can expect at EA Play, a few games are all but confirmed. Battlefield 6, FIFA 21, Madden NFL 21, and Apex Legends are all very likely. Equally, The Sims 5 and NBA Live 21 could show up. Regardless, the wait continues for Titanfall fans.

Rainbow Six Siege Lacks A Campaign


In an interview with WhatCulture, art director Scott Mitchell revealed that there would be no single player campaign in the upcoming Rainbow Six title.

He attempts to justify this notion with a statement about player vs. AI modes as seen below.

“There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customise matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things”

Fear not however, as he goes on to talk about how this will impact the multiplayer…

“It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives”

In other words, repetitively grind out the multiplayer maps against unintelligent AI for hours on end for unlocks if you so desire. This growing trend is becoming a really frustrating prospect.

RBSS1

First Titanfall and Evolve, now Battlefront and Rainbow Six: Siege. Why do developers think that it’s justifiable to charge full price for a game that is lacking a huge component of what makes these games worth purchasing? Titanfall at least attempted to merge a story into the multiplayer, but lazy execution and a lack of focus meant that it was bare-boned at best.

The beta for Rainbow Six is at least promising, but excluding any sort of proper Campaign with a Tom Clancy game is disappointing to say the least.

Best Games of March 2014 (Rankings & Sales)

Games

March 2014 was definitely a month of giants. Many mainstream and highly anticipated games were released and the result couldn’t be better. The gaming charts filled up with thousands of sales all over the world and the gaming media had plenty of quality content to review. But which games were the best? And which ones sold the most? Here’s a detailed list with accurate information from VGChartz, N4G, GameSpot and IGN.

Titanfall1. Titanfall (PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Titanfall has absolutely conquered the hearts of FPS players all over the world. With more than one million copies retailed in just one month, Titanfall was the true king of sells during March. And because quality has always been a priority for Respawn, Titanfall was one of the top ranked games of the month. At least, the huge hype wasn’t in vain and Titanfall is now a worthy opponent for popular FPS franchises like Battlefield and Call of Duty.

Released On: March 11th, 2014     Genre: FPS

Developer: Respawn Entertainment     Publisher: Electronic Arts

Global Sales: 1,11M     N4G Average Score: 8.4     GameSpot Score: 9    IGN Score: 8.9

dark souls 2 boss fight guide2. Dark Souls II (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)

The ambitious Dark Souls franchise came back with a second story in March and as expected, the quality and difficulty of the series has been maintained. Dark Souls II was the best ranked game of the month with impressive scores from countless gaming media. However and despite this stunning performance, the game was not able to sell proportionately to its score, reaching a bit less than 700,000 copies sold.

Released On: March 11th, 2014     Genre: Action-RPG

Developer: From Software     Publisher: Namco Bandai Games

Global Sales: 0,68M     N4G Average Score: 8.9     GameSpot Score: 9    IGN Score: 9

inFAMOUS: Second Son 3. inFAMOUS: Second Son (PlayStation 4)

The PlayStation 4 giant inFAMOUS: Second Son came to dominate. The game was released at the end of the month but nevertheless, it was able to achieve stunning results. It sold more than 700,000 copies in a bit more than a week, which might indicate that the retail number will keep rising in the first weeks of April. inFAMOUS: Second Son has also attained impressive scores among gaming media all over the world.

Released On: March 21th, 2014     Genre: Action-Adventure

 Developer: Sucker Punch Productions     Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Global Sales: 0,71M     N4G Average Score: 8.2    GameSpot Score: 8     IGN Score: 8.7

South Park: The Stick of Truth 4. South Park: The Stick of Truth (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)

The famous South Park series brought another hilarious story that fans wouldn’t want to miss. Despite the general positive feedback, the game obtained quite divergent scores from gaming media. Probably because the game involves basically every race out there and the story isn’t as cohesive as it should be. Anyhow, South Park: The Stick of Truth was able to sell a bit more than 300,000 copies.

Released On: March 4th, 2014     Genre: RPG

Developer: Obsidian Entertainment & South Park Digital Studios     Publisher: Ubisoft

Global Sales: 0,32M     N4G Average Score: 8.7     GameSpot Score: 7    IGN Score: 9

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes 5. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes features Snake in another thrilling adventure. This is the first act of the fifth series and a prologue for the upcoming The Phantom Pain. Despite all the hype and expectations, the game didn’t show any spectacular results. Reviews have ranked Ground Zeroes as a decent game and the global charts expose a bit more than 200,000 copies sold in two weeks.

Released On: March 18th, 2014     Genre: Action-Adventure

Developer: Kojima Productions     Publisher: Konami

Global Sales: 0,23M     N4G Average Score: 7.4     GameSpot Score: 8    IGN Score: 8

how to fix thief crashes stuttering6. Thief (PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Thief was released at the very ending of February, hence why the scores and chart numbers being made public during March. Eidos Montreal’s reboot of Thief wasn’t that impressive, at least that’s what most of reviews state. On the other hand, the game was able to sell fairly well considering the mediocre evaluations. Hype effects or not, it managed to sell nearly 400,000 copies during March.

Released On: February 25th, 2014     Genre: Stealth

Developer: Eidos Montreal     Publisher: Square Enix

Global Sales: 0,38M     N4G Average Score: 6.7     GameSpot Score: 6    IGN Score: 6.5

Titanfall Huge Disc Install Causing Problems, Is Mostly Audio

Titanfall

The Titanfall madness has already started and unfortunately it’s not all good: we’ve tried to fix Titanfall problems already, but apparently there are even more problems with unexpected causes. One of them is the huge install size of Titanfall on PCs, where the size of the game is a whooping 48GB.

The problem caused by this? Well, there are still people who have data caps or live in more remote regions where download speed is pretty slow, so these people seem to be doomed waiting to download 20 GB of data. Data they might never need, because all this huge size (the PC version is 35GB more than the Xbox One version) is nothing but uncompressed audio data. And this is because you will download EVERY language in the game, even though you will most likely need no more than one.

The community is trying right now to create a petition and have Respawn find a workaround for this – like an option to select the language(s) you want the game to download, but until then, everybody has to download this mammoth set of audio data just because. Not nice.

What do you think? Wouldn’t it be easier if Respawn allowed gamers to select the languages they want audio for instead of downloading all that extra and useless data?

Titanfall: How to Level Up Fast & Easy

Titanfall

Now that we’ve talked about how to fix Titanfall crashes and even checked out some basic Titanfall tips, it’s time to get to something that really matters: how to level up fast in Titanfall and get XP points like a pro. You probably know that a higher rank in the game offers a lot more options and makes the entire game a lot more fun, so we should do our best to gain more XP points and level up faster than the rest in Titanfall. Hopefully our guide will help you get through this process safe and sound (and fast), so let’s check it out below!

1. Titanfall: The Next Generation
It’s all about moving to the next generation in Titanfall and in order to do so, you will have to complete all the challenges of that generation first. A new generation will reset your rank, but will increase your XP gains by up to 350%. So simply playing the game and completing the challenges – exploring all the weapons and gear – will automatically help you level up faster. How fast this happens depends on your skill level and your desire to follow the next tips and tricks.

2. Play Last Titan Standing
The easiest way to get XP points in the beta still remains at the moment of writing an amazing option for leveling up faster so make sure you play this mode as much as possible.

3. Get Easy assist XP
I am not sure if this will be fixed eventually (probably not), but it is working now: shoot all the enemy titans that you see and move on. You don’t have to attack and destroy that titan in order to get some assist XP points when that titan dies and they all do eventually… so shoot the titans but focus on AI-controlled opponents which are easier to kill.

4. Kill other pilots
You will get a lot of XP points for killing enemy pilots and if you manage to be the first one to do it, you get even more XP. Since most of the pilots will go for AI-controlled units first, here’s a trick you can try: use the cloaking device and a silenced weapon, go where the AI units are spawned and wait for the pilots to arrive. Go for a surprise attack and you get some easy XP points!

Titanfall Burn Cards: a easy way to get extra XP
Titanfall Burn Cards: a easy way to get extra XP

5. Use Burn Cards
Burn Cards are not just extremely useful boosts in Titanfall, but they can also help you net some extra XP points and level up faster. Killing enemy pilots with Burn Cards activated gives you extra experience points, but the general advantages given by these cards will improve your overall game and in return help you get more XP fast.

6. Farm on AI-controlled units
In the end, the easiest way to get a ton of easy XP points is to focus on destroying the grunts controlled by the AI. Easy to kill and in large numbers, especially weak to Titans (but be aware of other pilots trying to take your titan down), the AI controlled units should be farmed intensely for maximum XP gains.

What other strategies do you adopt when it comes to ranking up fast in Titanfall?

Titanfall Cheats and How To Guide

The world of Titanfall is filled with goodies and surprises, but some of the gamers might want quicker access to them. And since knowledge is better than being surprised by the game, we have decided to create this article with Titanfall cheats, codes and “how to” guides to help you get better at the game and unlock everything as fast as possible.

At the moment of writing, there are no Titanfall cheat codes discovered, but we’re keeping our eyes open and as soon as we find anything, we’ll let you know. Most likely, though, all the “cheats” for this game will be in the form of glitches.

But cheating is not the only way of getting ahead in this game – knowing how to do stuff and access features before the others is a sure way to gain an advantage, so here are a few tips and tricks to progress faster:

1. How to unlock the Atlas titan
In order to access the custom classes in the game, you need to reach Rank 10. Once there, you will unlock the Atlas Titans and be able to customize them as you see fit.

2. How to unlock Styder titans
If you want to permanently unlock them and not get access to them using Burn Cards, you will have to complete either the IMC or the Militia campaign.

3. How to unlock Ogre titans
Just like the Styders, the Ogre titans are available early on via Burn cards, but can be permanently unlocked by completing both the IMC and Militia campaigns.

4. How to unlock extra maps
Get the Titanfall Season Pass DLC (check it out here) to make sure you will have Day 1 access to the new content of the game, expected to launch in Spring, Summer and Fall.

This Titanfall cheats and how to guide is a work in progress right now. If you know any cheats, codes or have any goodies to share with us that will help us with the game, let us know by commenting below.

How to Fix Titanfall Crashes, Graphic Problems and More

Titanfall

The big day is finally here! Titanfall just got out of beta into a full launch and everybody is excited to play the game. However, not all the players who want to do it are lucky enough to actually enjoy the game as Titanfall crashes or is plagued by graphical problems and more. We are here to help you fix these problems, so if you have any kind of trouble with the game, read on and hopefully you’ll be able to fix it.

Before we get to the actual “how to fix Titanfall crashes and graphical problems” thing, let’s talk about an issue that is troubling new players: Titanfall getting stuck at “initializing” screen. There are many players who report that their game gets stuck at “initializing” and unfortunately there’s no real way to fix that. Have in mind that the game has just been launched, the number of players who want to get it in huge and the servers might lag a little bit. Give it some time, try to reconnect and you will eventually get in. Also, we are sure that in a couple of days everything will run as smooth as possible, so don’t lose hope!

Now let’s talk about the Titanfall graphical problems, as many people are complaining about screen tearing, low frame rate and other visual glitches.

SLI problems
Most of the problems reported are related to the SLI technology for nVidia users. There’s a quick fix for that: go to your nVidia control panel and under the 3D application options for Titanfall look for the SLI option and choose “Single GPU”. Problem solved!

CrossfireX
AMD users are not free of problems either and most of the graphical problems in Titanfall are related to CrossfireX. In this case, either play in windowed mode or simply disable CrossfireX to get your game running.

Intel Graphics
If you’re trying to play the game without a dedicated graphics card, you will not be able to run the game without a heap of problems. Maybe it’s time to invest in something a little better – search for “cheap gaming laptops” on Amazon (click here for the search) for example and pick up a model that’s as recent as possible with a dedicated graphics card to fully enjoy the game. Or at least get more from it.

Other graphical problems and glitches
There are still many people who complain about other Titanfall graphical problems, such as low frame rate, stuttering or strange lines appearing on their screen. If none of the suggestions above are for you, simply try to tune down the visual settings of the game. Disabling anti aliasing altogether would be a good idea, such as would be the idea of disabling vSync. Generally, don’t go for the insane settings unless your rig can really handle it.

How to fix Titanfall Crashes and Black Screen

Unfortunately, there is not much info that we have to share right now with you. Just as with the solutions posted above, most of the crashes and black screen issues are gone if you disable Crossfire or SLI. Also, running the game in Windowed mode does wonders to its stability, so you should definitely try it out.

We are also sure that the graphic card developers are working hard to release the full drivers for Titanfall, which should increase the game’s stability, so keep an eye on them and make sure that you download the latest drivers for your graphic cards.

Titanfall Guide: What’s the Best Pilot/Titan Combination for You?

Titanfall

Titanfall doesn’t feature classes, professions or definitive roles. This upcoming sci-fiction first-shooter game allows players to create a distinctive role by combining up to 27 different loadout paths. It’s currently rumored that further paths will be added upon release but for now, we have three sectors with three roles each. The main characters, known as pilots, can choose between rifleman, assassin or CQB. Therefore, players can choose which titanfall type (strider, atlas or ogre) they want and which titan loadout (artillery, assault or tank) they prefer. Despite the multiple hybrid combinations, there are three solid paths based on damage, range, mobility and defense. If you’re not sure about which loadouts you’re going for, then find out about the current three roles and which one is the most suitable for your gameplay.

Pilot Loadout

Hammond Robotics

Titan Loadout

Combination Attributes

Rifleman

Stryder

Artillery

Long Range/High DPS/High Mobility/Low Defense

Assassin

Atlas

Assault

Medium Range/Medium DPS/ Medium Mobility/Medium Defense

CQB

Ogre

Tank

Close Range/Medium DPS/Low Mobility/High Defense

stryder1. Offensive Role (Rifleman-Stryder-Artillery)

The offensive role is the most overwhelming force on the battlefield. This setup is designed to be destructive and intrusive. This specific combination has a great synergy because every loadout contains similar attributes that boosts damage input, mobility and range. The pilot rifleman has a decent battle range and a great capability to deal huge amounts of damage. Choosing the stryder titan will enchant all the core offensive abilities – this robot is the most fragile in terms of resistance but on the other hand, it out matches all the other titans at speed, acceleration, and agility. Finally, picking the artillery titan loadout will allow players to deal large amounts of damage from a long distance. If you enjoy melting your opponents and moving fearlessly across the battlefield, then this is the ideal role for you.

Pros: High DPS; long range; excellent mobility,

Cons: Low defense; fragile at close combat.

titanfall_ogre_header2. Intermediate/Support Role (Assassin-Atlas-Assault)

This chain of combinations doesn’t excel at anything in particularly. It’s an intermediate role with mediocre levels at every attribute. I would call it the supportive class since it can fit a bit in every role – it can deal decent amounts of damage, it can tank a bit and its mobility is not bad either. The pilot assassin loadout is focused on precision and damage, locking down targets and taking them down is quite easy. The atlas titan is the medium type of robot, even though it doesn’t have a light exoskeleton, it’s not heavily armored either, it sits right in the middle. The assault setup is designed to inflict medium damage. This is a role that could suit basically all type of players due to its versatility, dynamism and attribute flexibility.

Pros: Decent defense; medium range.

Cons: Medium DPS.

Titanfall-Atlas-Trailer3. Defensive Role (CQB-Ogre-Tank)

The defensive role is nothing like the other two roles, this setup has the ability to absorb massive amounts of damage from several opponents and still deal decent amounts of damage. The CQB pilot is not exactly a tank but he’s also different from the other two, he’s more focused on close range combat and he’s able to extend his parkour abilities. The ogre titan is simply a beast in combat, it’s the most armored robot and it inflicts more damage on close encounters. Additionally, the tank loadout allows players to move slowly around the battlefield since enemy fire can be absorbed and reflected back. Players who enjoy to tank and protect their allies will rather play this setup for sure.

Pros: Great defense; strong at close range combat.

Cons: Weak mobility; medium DPS.
