‘Titanfall’ DLC Trailer Hits the Web: Too Good to Be True?
Respawn Entertainment has released a trailer for a new Titanfall DLC that brings Optimus Prime into the game. Yes, the leader of the Autobots has decided to take a break from his never-ending struggle against the Decepticons to duke it out against titans instead. It seems like a ideal match, seeing as both titans and Transformers are enormous robots. According to the trailer, this previously unannounced DLC is dropping today, April 1, 2014.
Titanfall is an online shooter that’s currently available for Xbox One and Windows PCs, and is coming soon for Xbox 360. The game is based around six-on-six multiplayer battles in which characters can run along walls, equip a number of weapons, and pilot giant mechs called “titans.” That’s where Optimus Prime comes in.
The trailer shows the lead Transformer equipping a giant golden battle axe that lets him hack away at titans, as well as powering on a cloaking device that makes him nearly invisible. He can also bring his enormous metal boot down on poor humans, so you might want to keep an eye on the sky if you’re not in control of him. You can even see Optimus transform into his semi truck form and drive away. The DLC is coming first to Xbox One, and it features “Prime Time,” a new song by Linkin Park.
Does this crossover seem too good to be true? Do Optimus Prime’s character model and voice acting seem a little undercooked in the trailer? Is today the day when April Fool’s jokes run rampant on the Internet? The answer to all of those questions, of course, is yes.
