Awesome awesome news!
I've been playing since launch and yeah, you legit couldn't get into a game on PS4 anymore during certain times of day.... at least, not without sitting in a matchmaking que upwards of 5 minutes.
Xbox has really ever had this problem as its more or less always managed to have almost double the playercount. Im sure TF1 exclusiveness helped lay that foundation
So creative; almost every level has a super neat idea going on that a whole game could be made around. One of the three best shooter campaigns of this generation, alongside Doom and Infinite Warfare. 2016 was fucking bonkers.
I'd encourage you to try it. Frontier Defense is an entire mode (horde, basically) against AI, so you don't have to worry about enemy players. For PvP modes, try attrition. There will be some good pilots, but try focusing on grunt kills to get your titan as quickly as possible, as titan combat is much easier to learn.
Titanfall 1 was an Xbox One/360 console exclusive and it had a huge marketing campaign from Microsoft, despite Titanfall 2 going multiplatform I suppose the series remained seen as an "Xbox IP" in the eyes of many Xbox and PS4 players. I also believe that Microsoft had the marketing deal for Titanfall 2, but they never went all in with it the same way they did with Titanfall 1.
Keep in mind that this isn't the norm for multiplat online shooters, they almost always have a much larger playerbase on the PS4 than on Xbox One.
Excellent. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say Titanfall 2 was one of the best FPS' I've ever played and cemented Respawn as a developer I love; excellent gameplay mechanics that created a solid multiplayer, and a tightly designed single-player campaign which is up there with the best. Hearing that Apex has helped it see a resurgence makes me very happy! Respawn deserves this.
But yeah, there are some theories within the Titanfall community that Cooper might've joined the Apex Predators (now Legends) after Blisk gave him an invite to join them in TF2's ending (which goes hand in hand with theory of Cooper being MRVN's lost owner and going AWOL a few years after 2's events), and that he could be one of the legends to be added in Apex Legends.
