No "Multiplayer Tech Test" on PC. Only on Xbox and PS4.

Ugh....

We’re still making a lot of tweaks and changes to the renderer, the game, and effects so we haven’t run the game through the hardware compatibility lab yet to detect and handle a large variety of hardware - video cards, CPUs etc. Quite frankly, we aren't ready to deal with that yet, we are still making the game better.

Wait, so 2 months from release and they're still working on poo poo and don't even know the min spec? Oh boy.

yeah they're working on poo poo until the last minute, just like approximately every other major game made ever. Unless they also lock out pre-release PC review copies - i.e. trying to hide PC performance until first day of sales - I'm not really worried about it yet.

Gadzooks! I'm terrified of this little child who is going to stab me with a knife. I must wrest the knife away from his control and therefore gain the upperhand.


Probably a good idea to say now, don't pre-order. Maybe this game will be like TF1 and will be a blast on PC and will run like a dream. But in case its poo poo don't get burned. No sense in pre-ordering till we know its solid. And as someone who helped lead the charge in TF1 may god be merciful and give us another great titan fall.

Came here to say the same thing! No wallrunning, people engaging in the middle of open fields, Titans strolling around leisurely with unused boost, it was frustrating to watch!

Clearly a bunch of non-titanfall players. I don't really know if we were supposed to know who those players were but none of them seemed that good. What a waste.

On the second map there was like a big tower and a small building with a field separating it. And in the field was just a propped up slanted wall that literally only exists for wall running, and not a single person used it they all just hung out in the field right next to it the whole game. I am losing my mind over here.

Wrong tab was disappointed it wasn't a link to the Star Citizen stream going up..But oh man I had a blast with the first TF and stoked for more. Not gonna be surprised if we have another case of the rail gun or cannon whatever it was in 1 with those couple titan high damage laser weapons they showed becoming the one proper thing to use on PC where they'll be easy to aim. Hard to tell with the stream quality but I'm thinkin' a lot of stuff looked pretty similar. Like I'm hoping this is the kind of sequel where they built all the engine and visual stuff in the first one and got to spend most of their time building gameplay elements for the second.

Dear devs pls double or triple the pilot ttk for us olds that want to play pseudo-Quake with robits instead of CoD

Might as well strip out the Titanfall references and replace them with basically any game this year.

Except for Last Guardian. That's been in development hell for so long, there's no doubt it's going to be poo poo.

I'm watching the recording of that stream and aside from the Influencers being terrible at the game here are some things I noticed:
  • Some more of the TF1 weapons are making a come-back, i.e. the Kraber and the LMG
  • I saw something about activating amped weapons, I think those are replacing the burn cards maybe? Not sure how you build up that meter or whatever it is
  • Doomed Titan healthbar doesn't go down automatically any more.
  • You can pick up shield batteries but I think you can only put them in your own titan? If you want to give them to a teammate you have to call them and they get out of their titan to pick it up I think

I watch this like this and I get confused because you'd think they'd eventually accidentally include someone who has played a video game before in one of these things. Like eventually they'd have to gently caress up and get someone who's heard of an FPS before, right?

Ball was in your court and look at you, you're a mess. Maybe you should have tried wallrunning.

I did like how they kept saying "oh, that's...not how you use the grapple at all."

Also when they called that guy out for his chump grenade throws.

Just found out via a Facebook post that my friend is actually a writer for this game. That's right, a writer for Titanfall...

He gave me PS4 code to start playing today, but I haven't touched my PS4 in a while. I assume this means I need to have PS+?
