Titanfall is just one week from release, which also means we're nearing hype critical mass. Here is today's reminder that Titanfall will provide a much-needed feather in Microsoft's cap when the game releases for Windows and Xbox One on March 11, a gameplay trailer full of robots, action and drama.
The robot designs are by far my favorite aspect of this game. They're rough, functional machines built solely to serve a military application. This isn't a sleek, futurist aesthetic, but the kind of hulking battle bots made by people who recognize little benefit in prettying up devastation. And yet, they're beautiful all the same because you have to acknowledge the effort in bringing that to life visually is much more demanding than smooth lines and contours.
