It looks like the Titanfall 2 multiplayer beta release is confirmed. An official statement by Titanfall 2 states that they will release a multiplayer technical test to help Respawn test various aspects of the game. Also, Titanfall offers gamers a chance at this beta before launch if they sign up for the Titanfall 2 newsletter.
Check out this awesome preview at the multiplayer gameplay:
GameSpot makes a point that this would presumably be available for Xbox One, PC and PS4. Also, the same report confirms the October 28 Titanfall 2 release date.
From the trailer, it looks like Titanfall will have new types of Titans. Comparing them to the original version, they look more versatile and have new abilities. As Gamespot pointed out, one Titan was seen to use a canon beam against a mech and another doing ground and pound. Also, pilots would have new abilities such as the gravity grenade that sucks enemies in causing moments of vulnerability. In addition, teleporting was also featured in the trailer.
Gameplay staples such as wallruns for traversals and aim-down-sights style first person shooting are also in the game. But in an earlier Bitbag report, this will be enriched by the new grappling hook ability. This will help players get close to the Titans. This can also be used, like at the end of the trailer, to pull enemies while in midair which is a pretty cool way to finish off enemies.
But this is not all, the Titanfall 2 will have a single player campaign game which is playable offline. This, as can be imagined, will get players more into the Titanfall 2 world and get invested in characters and missions. According to Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn and co-creator of the Call of Duty series via VG27, this single player campaign will let players step onto the Frontier starting out as a Militia rifleman with aspirations of becoming an elite pilot.
