When Titanfall 2 launches in October, it'll come packed with six mechanical monsters for players to take control of on the battlefield. The development team has gone the extra mile to make for proper introductions, recently posting a video showing off the entire squad of Titans in action.
Respawn has announced that six different Titans will be up for grabs in Titanfall 2, giving players a nice mix of loadouts to consider when deciding who they want to pilot in the heat of battle. Along with offering their own strengths and weaknesses, the Titans have unique abilities, builds and even something of a personality.
The Titans were shown off earlier today on the Titanfall 2 blog courtesy of the "Meet the Titans" video embedded above.
The video kicks it into high gear with Legion leading the charge. This guy has a massive chaingun for an arm and apparently offers a nice array of ballistic abilities that make him perfect for defense and map control when the other team is getting out of line.
Next up is the agile Ronin, which, as you might have guessed by the name, is built around the concept of a mechanical samurai. Ronin is quick, likes to get up close and personal and serves a player well who tends to try and fight on their own. And, yes, Ronin has a sword.
Third in the lineup is Northstar, who almost has the look of an astronaut about him. That's appropriate, as this member of the Titanfall 2 roster is all about taking flight and offering up weaponry that relies on precision.
The fourth member of the team is the hulking Ion. Again sporting an oh-so-appropriate name, Ion has a unique bit of functionality that lets him share energy between three separate weapons systems. A versatile member of the Titanfall squad, expect Ion to be good for combat at all three ranges, if not astounding at any.
The low-to-the-ground Scorch is a squirrely fellow, offering -- you guessed it -- the ability to reduce your enemies to ash. Giving new meaning to the term "scorched earth," you'll be able to pound the ground to send out burning damage in rays or waves.
Finally, there's Tone, who appears to offer some great firepower and lots of explosions. This member of the Titanfall 2 team is perfect for the player that likes to deal a lot of damage and look flashy in the process.
Now that you've seen all of the Titans in action, we'd be interested in hearing which mech our readers are leaning toward at this point in the game. Any of these Titanfall 2 behemoths speaking to your heart and soul? Let us know in the comments below.
Sadly, talking about Titanfall 2 is the only way we can pass the time between now and Oct. 28, when the game will finally launch for Xbox One, PlayStation for and Origin.
