Titanfall developers Respawn have said they always planned to have a story in the first game but they just didn't have the time or resources. Looking at what they're doing with the sequel, it seems they're set to make up for it.
Here's the latest story trailer for Titanfall 2.
Right in the feels!
Honestly this link up between a human pilot with no training and a Titan feels like a great expansion of the world, especially as the two of you start to bond and grow together as characters. We're pretty sure there are going to be some emotional times ahead.
Titanfall 2 is out on the 28th of October 2016.
