Respawn has made no secret of the fact that Titanfall 2 revolves around the partnership between the rookie Jack Cooper and veteran BT-7274. The newest single player trailer focuses on that bond even further.
Jack is “a grunt with aspirations of becoming a Pilot and he’s caught the eye of a Master-level Pilot, Captain Tai Lastimosa. Lastimosa sees potential in Jack and takes him under his wing, training him secretly to avoid the red tape during their time of war against the IMC. Jack is showing a lot of potential but he’s still got a long way to go before he’s ready for Pilot Certification,” Respawn explains.
When Lastimosa is killed in action though, Jack and the now pilotless Titan BT-7274 have to team up to survive. And according to story details in the new trailer, they will have quite the fight. The IMC has a super weapon capable of taking out entire planets.
Titanfall 2 releases October 28 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It joins Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in this year’s list of first-person shooters featuring a renewed emphasis on narrative and the single-player campaigns.
