Titanfall is still a magnificent shooter. Accessible yet deep, ridiculously fun and empowering, mechanically peerless, it's well worth getting into even if the player count is now admittedly rather low. It's also an incredibly important game, directly responsible for the rush to include exciting vertical mechanics we see in most next-gen FPS titles these days.
If you want to get involved, you can buy a new Xbox 360 copy for £14.86. Remember that the DLC is free to download!
Alternatively you can buy Titanfall on Xbox One for £11.99 used.
Titanfall has been celebrating its 1st birthday this week, and we all get a party bag. After all three map packs went live on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One earlier this week, Respawn now confirms that they'll stay free forever.
"This content is free will remain free for all users who purchase Titanfall for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC," the studio clarified on Twitter.
Still not played Titanfall? Tut, and indeed tut. Thankfully we've found a deal for a preowned copy of the game for just £9.99, which is a tenner cheaper than a new one. Sold!
We're big Titanfall fans here at Dealspwn and this FPS/mech/jetpack/parkour behemoth certainly delivered the fun. As I mentioned earlier, Titanfall 2 has just been 'announced' and you can also currently download the first game's Season Pass DLC content for free. Hell, I've added it to my account, and I don't have an Xbox One yet! Playing on the PC? How about a £10.85 deal at ShopTo? And yes, you can have some free DLC too.
Thanks to BuzzDurband and NeoTrix.
Titanfall's three map packs were slashed down to absolutely gratis on Xbox 360 and Xbox One last night, but now PC players can get in on the freebie action too.
In case you missed the memo, you can get the season pass for £0.00 on Xbox One, or download the Expedition, Frontier's Edge and IMC Rising map packs individually on Xbox 360. A fantastic find by Jerec @ HUKD!
Titanfall's maps are some of the best we've seen in years, and its three map packs are no slouch either. Brilliantly, they're now also completely free.
I'd personally recommend all three of these great content packs even if they weren't free. Behold:
Many thanks to Si__ @ HUKD!
Haven't played Titanfall yet? It's probably time you did, because you can currently grab Titanfall on PC for only £3.88/$5.99.
As an Amazon US listing, you'll need to ensure that you've registered a US address (any US address) if you're a British or European customer.
As far as I'm concerned, Titanfall is hands-down the best multiplayer shooter of 2014, and I don't make that statement lightly. Though skinny in terms of content at launch (which has since been bulked out considerably in numerous free updates), its empowering vertical parkour, massive mechs and superb maps provide a massive skill ceiling yet make the game accessible to anyone, while causing the industry to react by shoving freeform mechanics into their own titles. It's an immensely important game and one that's an absolute steal at this price. See also: COMMENT | Be Advised: it's time you gave Titanfall another chance
Thanks to MrCollective @ HUKD, who found this before I did, as well as Gooner and Neotrix for the tip!

Seriously, rodeoing an enormous mech and taking it down by blowing its brains out never gets old.
Now's a great time to get involved following all of the DLC drops including the Expedition levels. Be sure to check out Jon's review and have a look at our Titanfall hub to see our videos and articles, including Carl heading online with only a joystick for company.

Looking for a cheap console bundle deal? This one might float your boat. ShopTo's eBay outlet are currently selling an Xbox One with Call Of Duty: Ghosts, Titanfall, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Wolfenstein The New Order and a Forza 5 GOTY Download for under £350.
It's a good price, though in fairness, it's worth noting that you can get bigger and better games for your money than Call of Duty Ghosts and Murdered.

Thanks to Andrew91 @ HUKD.
Missed out on the earlier Titanfall PC deal that had the game for £6 at Tesco (£5 with code)? Well, Amazon have you covered... sort of. The game is OOS at the moment, but Amazon are taking orders for swift dispatch as soon as stock comes in. Normally, we'd suggest waiting it out, but £6 is an absolute steal for Titanfall, and the game is just as fun and fresh as it was at launch.
In fact, along with Destiny, it's been leading our Game of the Year community voting!
NB. Bear in mind that you'll need to spend over £10 or use Prime for free delivery. Cheers MrManwelo!
Titanfall (PC) can be had for as low as £5 at Tesco right now, but there are stock warnings in play here, so you'll need to be seriously quick!
NB. Use voucher code TD-FRTW to get it at this price. Cheers RedDemonic!
Microsoft have come storming back this winter with some cracking Xbox One console bundle deals, and this five-game stunner from migenie on eBay is the latest in a long line of superb Xbox One deals.
The five games included are Titanfall, Battlefield 4, Forza 5 GOTY, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Cheers ColinB1984!
This is a crazy Xbox One console bundle deal. Asda are basically giving away and Xbox One with Kinect and Titanfall for under £300 because the box is a bit tatty.
Here's the disclaimer from Asda's website: "Damaged Packaging - Please be aware that the product packaging for this item is damaged. Actual product is in original manufacturer's condition." If you can brave a broken box for one of the best console bundle deals around, I'd say go for it. Cheers arthurd123!
If you're an Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber, you can but Titanfall: Deluxe Edition for a tenner right now on the Microsoft Store!
I love that video.
Titanfall is still probably my "pure" FPS of the year, which is to say that it would be the best had Far Cry 4 not just come along and blown me away. Titanfall is even better thanks to the free Frontier Defence pack, and the game is currently down to £7.49 on Origin.

Here's Titanfail II for good measure.
The Xbox One has its first birthday tomorrow, and so we took the chance to cast our eyes back over the first twelve months of Microsoft's latest console to reflect on how it's performed after a rocky release, in a year where there's been a personnel change at the top and the competition has raced ahead to an early sales lead. Has the Xbox One managed to turn things around?
Phil Spencer bared his fangs and proved his mettle this year.
The new head of Xbox inherited a disaster in the making. Don Mattrick had totally sabotaged the Xbox brand, rolling out an insanely expensive media centre with functionality most devices and smart TVs already made obsolete, packing an admittedly excellent peripheral that nobody really wanted, stacked to the gunwhales with microtransactions and controversial features. The Xbox One sold modestly well on the strength of its fanbase, some decent launch titles and Titanfall, but it soon became apparent that the bloated "entertainment system" was a sitting duck as Sony and even Nintendo started pulling ahead. Spencer faced an impossible situation.
There's only one thing you can do in an impossible situation. Triage. Save what you can, then let everything else burn.
What followed was a ruthless, desperate and frankly magnificent campaign of revisions, U-turns and scorched-earth decisions as the new guard dismantled Mattrick's monstrosity into a console that might actually sell. Kinect was thrown under the bus. The RRP was hacked down to undercut the PS4, margins be damned, followed by some ludicrous bundles. Xbox Live Gold was declawed, and permanent free games were rolled out. Firmware updates weren't delivered annually, they were delivered every single month come what may.Click here to read more...
Jon's been telling us for weeks that we should jump back into Titanfall, largely thanks to the hefty recent content drop and the addition of a PvE horde mode of sorts, and we finally Titan'd up for some Game Night shenanigans.
It might just be the crushing disappointment and hollow feeling that Destiny has left me with, but frankly this was an utter blast. Frontier Defense is a cracking (FREE) addition to the delightfully smooth gameplay package, and it's clear that Respawn have really made a concerted effort over the past few months to make the game sparkle. The lobbies and customisation options have been tweaked in all of the right ways, matchmaking actually seems to work (and the countdown timers have been decreased), and Frontier Defense shakes things up in a great way, throwing Suicide Spectres and Arc Titans into the fray.
I have to say, though, that I really, desperately wish I had an Xbox One after this Game Night. Titanfall plays so incredibly well on PC, but really its a game that lends itself completely to the couch-oriented console experience. Still, this was an absolute blast, and I'm pretty sure Carl and I will certainly be joining Jon in dipping into it frequently over the next few weeks.
If COD doesn't blow us away, that is. That now has Titans too.
Titanfall is one of the best games of 2014.
No ifs or buts. On a purely objective and mechanical level, Titanfall's gameplay is impeccable, blowing the multiplayer shooter genre wide open with mobility, verticality, parkour, massive stompy robots and some of the best maps of the decade. It certainly isn't the first FPS to feature mechs and jet packs, but no game has ever managed to make these features so fluid and accessible, allowing anyone to get involved while providing veterans with a near-infinite skill ceiling as their abilities improve.
As such, I've returned to it on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis simply because it's that good.
Unfortunately, however, I lied. There was an "if" and a "but," and it's a doozy, because there's no denying that Titanfall was also wicked skinny for a full-priced game. Limited gametypes and throwaway singleplayer notwithstanding, these days most shooter fans expect comprehensive customisation, deep progression systems, addictive metagame and hefty on-paper value that Titanfall just didn't provide. Coupled with matchmaking issues as the population declined, many players angrily upped sticks and never returned.
Perhaps you were one of them. That's okay. But it's also a shame, since you'll have missed out on a huge amount of major improvements, tweaks and upgrades that bulk up and flesh out Respawn's sensational shooter. Now that Update 8 is live, I'd advise you to give it another shot.Click here to read more...
Titanfall is an utterly superb shooter. Partly it's the robots, partly it's the parkour, but it's also due to the impeccable map design that presents you with enormous, detailed, vertical canvasas with a near-infinite skill ceiling. All three map packs have been superb, and better yet, they'll only cost you six quid so long as you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. Which you obviously are, because this is a multiplayer game.
If you haven't logged on in a while, you've missed quite a bit, including some massive new updates. An article on why Titanfall still deserves your time will be going live in an hour or two. Many thanks to heatlight @ HUKD!
