Titanfall (PlayStation 4 screenshot 002)

Released with great fanfare on Tuesday, Titanfall is seemingly destined to become the next smash hit for super publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment (of the Call of Duty fame). For the uninitiated, Titanfall is a fast-paced first-person shooter multiplayer video game which has players fighting as mech-style Titans and their pilots in six-on-six multiplayer skirmishes.

You can assume control of the Titan’s pilot or the Titan itself at any time. When playing as a Titan’s pilot, you can run along walls and link jumps together parkour-style. After entering your Titan – well, what can I say – all hell breaks loose as you shatter your opponents to pieces using destructive armaments and special protective shields.

And now, Respawn’s co-founder Vince Zampella has officially confirmed that the studio is in talks with Aspyr Media on delivering a Mac version of Titanfall.

Count us excited!

Responding to a question about a Mac adaptation last night on Twitter, Zampella said (via Polygon) that Respawn was “talking to Aspyr”, adding that “they should do it.”

Back in February, he revealed to fans on Twitter that his studio was “talking about a Mac version,” and “would like to see it happen.”

Here’s your blurb:

Stand by for Titanfall. Crafted by key developers behind the Call of Duty franchise, Titanfall is the first next-gen shooter that combines fluid wall-running, double-jumping action with powerful, fast-paced titan warfare to set the new bar for online multiplayer gameplay.

Already the winner of more than 75 awards from critics around the world, Titanfall is winning over fans with its thrilling, dynamic first-person action gameplay featuring elite assault pilots and agile, heavily-armored, 24-foot titans.

I’ll let the video do the talking, here’s the Titanfall trailer.

Microsoft reportedly paid top dollar to ensure Titanfall‘s exclusivity across its platforms and some have said that the title could become Microsoft’s next Halo, if you will.

Titanfall indeed looks destined to become a true system-seller.

The game is currently available as an exclusive for Windows and Xbox One/360.

Should the Redmond giant sing on Respawn’s Mac deal with Aspyr (they’re behind the Mac’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare port, too) there’s likely going to be a significant delay – if history of the Mac gaming is anything to go by.

Wo wants to play Titanfall on their Mac?

  • Ariel

    Nice! I hope my iMac 09 will be able to run this!

    • It won’t, I’m pretty sure of that.

      • skychet

        How about 2012 MacBook Air?

      • Renii

        Let the guy dream a bit

      • Anthony Antunez

        The game runs on Source engine, a potato could run it.

      • Funny, runs fine on my Surface Pro, don’t see why it won’t on such highly-priced desktop PC. Would expect such highly priced desktop PC to be at least 5 years ahead in terms of performance of laptop PCs…

      • pronounce this

        It’s a good game and good looking but my MacBook Pro 2012 could probably run it.

    • XboxOne

      2009 model of iMac.. Upgrade already!

      • Ariel

        Dude most of my gaming I do on a Ps3 console

      • XboxOne

        You can play most console games on a PC.

  • Litchy

    Hope my iMac 27″ 2011 is good enough 😀 would love to play Titanfall !!

  • KingKon_NL

    Playing this on Windows (using boot camp) on my iMac and it is great! Too bad it can only run smoothly on 720p resolution though…

  • Tim smith

    Last sentence has an error. “Wo wants to play…”?

  • ProfessorX1®

    Would my iMac with Retina Display be able to play Titanfall? thanks in advance!

    • Diogo

      First, there is no iMac with retina display.

      • ProfessorX1®

        First, I obviously know that.

        Second, It was just a joke.

      • iMacRetinaDisplay

        There is now 😉

  • Fr0sty

    So pretty much the only systems that won’t have it will be the ps3 and ps4… Lol

    • XboxOne

      PS4 getting other great games so don’t worry about it fanboy.

      • Matthew Cleveland

        What does that have to do with it? He commented saying those systems won’t get Titanfall, which is true. You took offense to that? Obviously you’re the butthurt Playstation fanboy.

      • XboxOne

        Is that your sister you’re pressing cheeks against with?

    • Rowan09

      If it’s worth anything, EA said they will most likely make part 2 available on both systems since the PS4 sells the most EA games.

  • JJ88

    Would never buy an xbox one so mac could be a good option.

    The game does run like crap though and there is no single player… hmmm.

  • TinTonB

    “… – if history of the Mac gaming is anything to go by.

    Wo wants to play Titanfall on their Mac?”

    I hope Wo enjoys it! … ?

  • Jhonny Lennon

    Same two images 🙂

  • Dan

    Glad I have a PC, going to be playing this baby on a 40″ screen soon enough 🙂

  • Leonard Wong

    It will be great to have it
    But I think some Mac won’t run well especially 2013 Macbook which most only have integrated graphics

    • lolder

      I got the didicated graphic card in mine late 2013. Happy but I hope you can find the game cheap line for 10$ otherwise 70$ is way too much for a game

  • Marcus

    This is going to be awesome! Does anyone know if there might be multiplayer?

    • lolder

      lol it’s multiplayer only

      • Marcus

        The whole game is? Wait there isn’t like a Singe-Player?

      • Matthew Cleveland

        No there isn’t. It’s all online. It’s worth it though. I have been playing since launch and it’s hard to put down.

      • Marcus

        That actually makes it even more fun. Is split-screen cool? Have you tried that with anyone lol

      • Matthew Cleveland

        I play on PC and haven’t seen a split screen option. There might be on console but I haven’t heard of there being one.

  • omrishtam

    worst game in the history of everything…so much hype about such a shit game, and i played it.

  • eliiasv

  • Nick

    I am on Boot Camp 15″ rMBP i7 2.3GHz but would prefer to play it on the Mac side as it would run optimally.

  • Andrew Joseph Barger
