Titanfall could feature large monsters, according to game’s art book

IGN has managed to get a hold on the Art of Titanfall book ahead of its release next week, and some of the things they found inside are… interesting. Including a mention of monsters that indicate some large wildlife could appear on one of the maps.

IGN says the book confirms the name of some of the datamined maps folks dug form the game’s beta files this week. It also shows some pilots fighting some flying beasties and some larger scale creatures walking around, asserting that in the final game, some animals “will walk or fly around levels harmlessly until people interfere. Others will attack when you just stare at them.”

It also refers to some non-Titan vehicles like drones and tanks. Much more in IGN’s videos they’ve posted of them flipping through the art.

    An Artbook of a multiplayer only title. Shit couldnt be more ridiculous. I never even bought merchandise from Final Fantasy titles.

    Does this game have three versions as well? Like hardened edition and prestige etc. :P

    If I could play a Godzilla monster and slap around titanmechs, I might actually get into this thing. But then, the mechs would need to be bigger.

    I actually think that they changed the direction of the game at some point late in development, and just made the titans smaller. Everything about their aesthetic suggests bigger, even right down to the audio work. It creates this dissonance that I find hard to ignore, because they’re fairly tiny as mechs go, honestly. Hawken and Mechwarrior mechs would dwarf them.

    And to be fighting giant monsters, you’d need something even bigger. Maybe something along the lines of Megas XLR.

    Now I want a Megas XLR game.

    Can we just have a Megas XLR game?

    American mechs are always basic. Japanese mechs are the way to go.
