Ever since it was revealed at E3 last year, anyone remotely interested in the Xbox One has been looking forward to that one particular game, which might just be a defining moment in the console’s life. I’m of course talking about Titanfall. Titanfall was first revealed last year, and it has since grown to be one of the more highly anticipated games in the new generation of consoles and the worldwide beta, which end recently has only seemed to grow the anticipation of many gamers.
In fact, since Titanfall was announced last year, it’s picked up over 80 awards from critics worldwide, where it’s been described to be “a brave new vision of the future of multiplayer games”, “the first real next-gen shooter” and “the most addictive game ever.”
So to anyone who says this game is going to flop or just won’t live up to the hype. Take it from the man who put some serious time into the beta and the game’s 80 awards in the bag already (before it’s even launched)… I think you may be wrong!
In fact, I’m not the only one to think this game may define the new system. To celebrate the launch of Titanfall, Microsoft has announced a special bundle to help encourage a few more of your mates to join in on the game and purchase the console.
The Xbox One Titanfall Bundle is available on the 14th of March for €499.99 and will include; a download code for a digital copy of Titanfall, a standard Xbox One console with a Kinect sensor, a single Xbox One wireless controller which will be accompanied by a chat headset and in addition a single month’s worth of Xbox Live Gold membership.
Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business, Xbox, made the announcement today. Here’s the full details and blog:
