EA’s latest shooter, Titanfall 2, really got the short end of the stick this game season, releasing within days of the highly anticipated World War 1 title, Battlefield 1, and with a seriously lacklustre launch by EA themselves to boot. While the reviews for the game itself have been extremely positive (picking up a 9/10 from GameSpot and 89 percent on Metacritic), their actual sales have been less than satisfactory when compared to titles such as Battlefield 1 and other FPS rival Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In order to remedy this issue somewhat, Respawn has announced a free trial of the game’s full multiplayer offering and, if you are EA Access or Origin Access member, you can play it right now, on 30 November 2016!
From the official announcement: “Titanfall 2 will host a free trial of the game’s full multiplayer offering. The trial* will begin for EA Access and Origin Access members on November 30th and become available for all players starting December 2nd on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC. This will feature a full offering including all maps, modes, weapons and more including brand new content from Angel City’s Most Wanted DLC on December 3rd.”
“In Multiplayer, all post-launch maps, modes, and weapons will be free for all players. Featuring the fully remastered fan favourite Angel City map from the original Titanfall, Angel City’s Most Wanted introduces additional free content including the Wingman Elite Pistol, six new Titan kits, and a brand new Pilot execution. Angel City’s Most Wanted also gives players the ability to purchase cosmetic items for their Pilot and Titan, including camos, nose art, warpaint, and more starting on December 3rd.”
The free trial ends on 4 December 2016 so if you are looking to buy Titanfall 2 this holiday season (which I personally would recommend doing, especially if you have some friends to play with you), then head over to the official Titanfall 2 section in either Origin Access or Xbox Gold to start downloading today!
