Battlefield 1 is kind of awesome, and as it turns out based on early reviews, so is Titanfall 2. It’s been a huge end to the year for EA, with FIFA 17 also joining the huge lineup of games coming from the publisher this season.
Strangely, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 are being released more or less at the same time. Battlefield 1 hit last week, and later this week we’ll get Titanfall 2. If you’re a fan of multiplayer shooters, you’re set for the next decade (and that’s not including Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered).
There’s sure to be a huge number of players investing in both games, and as such, EA has announced that anyone that purchases and plays both games will net themselves a very snazzy red baron warpaint skin for their titan in Titanfall 2.

So it’s a fairly trivial aesthetic gesture, but a nice one nonetheless. While both games are first-person shooters, they couldn’t be further away from one another in likeness. Battlefield 1 is basically that gritty, dirty kid in the schoolyard that is always rough with everyone, while Titanfall 2 is that kid with all the cool gadgets and stuff …
Okay that was an utterly terrible analogy but I hope that at least kind-of sort-of highlights how different they are. Fact is Battlefield 1 is the best Battlefield yet, not just critically but also commercially, having gone on to sell more copies at launch than Battlefield Hardline and Battlefield 4 combined. That’s insane.
Can Titanfall 2 do the same over its predecessor? Most likely. The first game was only released on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, whereas this comes to an actively large audience in the PS4, along Xbox One and PS4. Except another big windfall, EA.
Titanfall 2 is out October 28, for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Battlefield 1 is already out. Go and play it. Now.
