That sounds seriously good... The only negative I can see is that it's not available RIGHT NOW!!! Any indication as to when it will be ready?

It seems its not coming out for ages, which is surprising as it felt better and looked better than a lot of games on the shelf right now.

It's due to be release in the first quarter of next year. So it isn't too far away.

I played this at EGX, and genuinely was impressed.

The hype is real on this.

My first minute: Jetpack to the top of a building, cut down some troopers, then jump on a Titan and 'Rodeo' it, shoot the sh*t out of the power core, then summon my own Titan and rampage the F out of everything.

My wish: I wish it had more destructible buildings (I'm spoiled by Battlefield's destruction)

Very fluid, and very awesome

It's a console game first? (Don't worry, it will come to PC)

As far as I know it's being release simultaneously for all three supported platforms.

This is the one game I am seriously looking forward to next year.

It's being made by the people who started Call Of Duty off and hopefully this time the publishers won't do what Activision did with them and Treyarch.

It's also using a modified Source Engine but apparently isn't going to come with the same level of support to us as what, you would expect it to since it's using Valves engine.

Apparently the rumors of 1st Quarter next year for release are not accurate also, but Respawn have not said when it's going to be released.

They are also warning people not to fall for the beta scam's that have already started apparently as well.

You've got to wonder what was going through Kotick and chums collective rectum when they decided to force West and Zampella out over their supposed insubordination. They and a bunch of Infinity Ward's elders were bored with Call of duty and wanted to do something else, surely the logical step was to let them do it, Activision took a risk on them to start with and got Call of Duty, when it took another risk they got Call of Duty 4 and knocked Halo off it's perch as the king of console shooters.
.
Taking a third risk apparently would have landed them this, putting up with a few office shouting matches and paying those bonuses must seem like such a good idea in retrospect.

Yet another game preview, seriously? I am certain there are more game previews than actual game reviews on Bit-Tech and I am also sure that half of the games that get previewed do not actually get followed up with a full review either.
There are so many article subjects and hardware topics out there that hardly get touched year after year as so much time is (in my opinion) wasted on things like this.

As soon as Activision started telling them how THEY wanted it - p2p, dumb perks, poor maps, retarded weapons. The writting was on the wall. As soon as this comes out hopefully call of duty will finally die along with Activision.

I suspect that the terms of business are that Respawn have 100% control and that EA basically get a share of profits in exchange for funding and marketing budget. This isn't a wholly owned EA studio/IP, and I imagine the game IP is owned by Respawn (unlike Halo or CoD).

It's like trying to sign Michael Jackson but telling them that you're making the music. Won't happen.

It looks alright, but maybe I'm just getting bored of FPS games. I'll definitely give it a shot but ATM it looks a little washed out. They should some vibrancy to the world.

Looks dated. I expect a lot of the COD players will flock to it, because they're sick of COD but not really. Gameplay looks fairly similar with some changes to keep it fresh. Personally I'm looking forward to Destiny and The Division more. Focus on coop and teamplay. Less free for all.

Trust me, This is nothing like CoD! It has fast gameply but that's about it. Style and map design is totally different. Vertical gameplay counts for a lot here.

Halo 5, I mean, Destiny hasn't presented me with anything new yet. Division looks interesting though, one of the big next gen games for me.

Played this at Gamescom, same level and all that, as the attacking forces and I was really impressed with what I got to play. The game lasted about 15 minutes and whilst the pace and tempo were pretty damn fast, they were easy to adapt to and the stomping around in a Titan was just fantastic fun. You can't underestimate determined Pilots on foot who are hunting you and you really need to be on the ball against other Titans.

Absolutely looking forward to this and more information about it, though I suspect we won't see too much in the near future with BF4 and CoD: Ghosts set for release in the next 2 & 3 weeks.

Respawn have taken some classic pillars of modern FPS gaming and merged them into something utterly brilliant. The Epilogue is a fantastic inclusion and the adrenaline rush of trying to make it back to your dropship is insane! I got shot by a hunter Titan (hard-hitting 40mm cannon) just as I was making the final jump to the dropship :p

this was really one title I was hoping to be released alongside the new consoles (I have a pc before you bash me btw, I want it along the next gen since I decided that bf4 was going to my pc, then wanted something else on either my xbone or ps4, I'm a multiplatform game freak yeah)

Looking forward to this game, looks really promising. Now we just need Destiny to be announced for PC.

Does look rather nice, though I'm still digging Hawken seeing as its f2p, despite the fact the dev team keeps screwing up & around with the game mechanics constantly...
Redbeaver 16th October 2013, 14:30 Quote
As a BF veteran and now spending time in PlanetSide2...

I am both very excited and very skeptic of this game. With all the previews of this game, I'm starting to expect all the great things from both games to exist. And that's just putting my expectation on a pedestal.
