We still have a few days to wait before Titanfall 2 finally drops but, in the meantime, we can all ogle a pretty rad little extra players of Battlefield 1 will be able to enjoy once the game finally arrives later this week.

Proving that two shooters can exist in harmony, the official Twitter page for Titanfall 2 was recently updated with a look at a special Red Baron Warpaint for your mechs. The message is short but sweet, explaining that anyone who has played Battlefield 1 will be able to unlock this rad red and white skin once they boot up Titanfall 2.

Titanfall 2 is breaking from the norm of new games (That aren't from Nintendo) coming out on Tuesday and will instead arrive this coming Friday, Oct. 28. When it does, players will be able to tackle the game's fully fleshed out single-player campaign, as well as all of those mech-fueled multiplayer modes that made the first game so enjoyable.

When I first heard that Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 were going to launch only a couple of weeks apart, I thought EA had lost their mind in the 'ole scheduling department. But the more I think about it, the more it makes a heck of a lot of sense, seeing as how these two games are very, very different. Sure, you'll be running around and shooting fools in both, but Battlefield 1 is a trip back in time to the first World War while Titanfall takes place in a technologically advanced future. One has more grounded gunplay with old-school firearms and tanks while the other features wall-running, grappling hooks, and massive mechs. One encourages more strategic play with teammates while the other is fast, frantic and lets you become a one-person army.

In other words, we don't doubt that some folks are having to decide between both Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 when it comes to dropping 60 bucks on a game right now but, otherwise, we don't think these games will be biting into each other's sales too hard. Plus, EA probably wanted to get both out in plenty of time for the holiday shopping season.

Still, for those who do decide to pick up both games, it's nice to see a little perk like this popping up in Titanfall 2 paying homage to Battlefield 1. Now we're curious if something similar will be done in the other direction. You can't just drop a mech on the battlefields of WWI, but maybe there's a skin option worth considering? We'd be interested to hear our readers' thoughts in the comments below.
