You can now pre-order Titanfall on Origin, the price has been slashed by an impressive R50. Not that it makes the deal any better. The game made a big splash at E3 this year, winning every one of six Game Critics Awards nominations.
The game was hailed best of many things including Best PC Game and Best Online Multiplayer, yet it won’t have a single player campaign. This makes the pre-order price a little bit questionable. Other first-person-shooters that are also multiplayer centric but include above average single player campaigns, like Battlefield 4 costs less than Titanfall on Origin.
Currently gamers can pre-order Titanfall for R449.99, while the Battlefield 4 Standard Edition is available for R404.09 and the Digital Deluxe Edition for R485.09. The Battlefield franchise however has a reputation of being one of the best online shooters for many years, but Titanfall, is a complete new title. You’d think that compared to what you get in the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition for its price, Titanfall would be offering some pre-purchase incentives too. But it doesn’t.
While the game certainly looks fantastic, the price and the fact that it’s only available on Origin, I can’t see myself buying this game. Maybe this demo footage can convince us.
