Titanfall for Xbox 360 has been recorded and looks impressive! It might not look as crisp as the Xbox One and PC versions, but it will certainly come close. Running at a promised 30 fps, the hour of footage captured and posted to Twitch by user City Flex appears to nearly rival that of its higher-scaled brothers.
Referred to as “Call of Duty with mechs” (usually by PlayStation 4 owners), Titanfall gameplay certainly starts out looking similar enough. However, when the game says “Prepare for Titanfall,” the Xbox exclusive title appears to take the action to a whole new level. With three kinds of titans to choose from (Stryder, Atlas, and Ogre), your armored suit will drop from above wherever you instruct it to, sometimes even scoring an easy kill if your target isn’t paying enough attention to run. It’s the parkour aspects and heavy weaponry that give Respawn’s title the muscle to stand on its own and shrug off the Call of Duty similarities.

As the video suggests, getting the Titanfall Xbox 360 version going will take a while, possibly ten or more minutes as it updates the console and optimizes the HD for its connection with higher definition copies. The game appears to hold nothing back, even including the video of the titans being assembled before they are unleashed into the war zone below.
The video of Titanfall Xbox 360 gameplay shows off everything you need to get ready to play online, including a tutorial for jumping over gaps, wall running, and obstacle navigation. The competitive gameplay itself is missing some of the textures seasoned Titanfall gamers are used to, but that’s to be expected when the source material is on a more advanced console.
Senior producer Daryl Allison stated about the comparisons:
“Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is the true experience: all the maps, modes, pilots, titans, weapons, burn cards, you name it, found in the Xbox One and PC versions. The game looks great, sounds great, and above all it plays great. There are of course some technical differences that are due to the technical limitations of the hardware — for example, the game runs above 30fps — but rest assured, the intense 6v6 wall-running, titan dropping action is all there.”
If you’re looking for a Titanfall Xbox 360 vs Xbox One matchup, as stated above, you’re in luck. Despite being the underdog in performance, you will be able to compete with literally anyone who owns a copy. Being an online-only game, this is almost a necessity, as most gamers at first will be Xbox One and PC owners. This is the main reason why the Xbox 360 version will have HD content installation.
A Call of Duty clone, this is not: Titanfall gameplay mechanics allow you to pull off the ability to run along walls to reach higher levels, and with Titanfall‘s vertical levels, that will come in handy. The killer IP in this stage of the Xbox One vs PS4 console war is almost here for the last generation.
Prepare for the Titanfall Xbox 360 release date tomorrow.
