BY LOGAN NYE — WEARETHEMIGHTY.COM

The video game Titanfall had a simple appeal. It was frontline combat in the future where humans, robots, and giant “titans” battled in a two-sided war.

Sure, there was a cool storyline and some bells and whistles, but the appeal was fighting battles in three-story metal juggernauts armed with rockets and cannons.

Now, a Titanfall 2 trailer is drawing players to the sequel with a more human appeal. A rifleman in the game, J. Cooper, describes what it’s like to fight side-by-side with the player-controlled pilots.

The story highlights some of the game’s new gadgets for pilots, including grappling hooks and the ability to create holograms.

But it’s the narrative and great voice acting that really sells the experience. Check out the trailer below and prepare for titanfall.
