TitanFall Alpha Extended, Users Upload Clips Under NDA
Although Respawn Entertainment aren't yet sure on the status of a Beta for their upcoming FPS game TitanFall, an Alpha has been going on for the last few days, and a lot of players that have managed to get into the closed alpha are very impressed with the game so far.
It seems Respawn has loved the positive response to their game so much that they decided to extended the closed alpha to Monday, and whilst most players kept their lips sealed whilst under the NDA that prohibits the recording of alpha gameplay footage, like pretty much every public closed alpha or beta out there, some bad eggs decided to break the rules and record footage anyway, and then upload it to the internet.
What this means for us is that we get to have a sneak peak of the game before it's full release. We get to see unscripted, real, live bug-filled alpha gameplay in all of it's glory, and as expected, it's looking pretty amazing.
One thing I do have gripes with though is the AI performance - from what I've seen the most common AI, the grunts, are absolutely incapable of landing a kill on you. Instead, they crouch there, occasionally spraying bullets into your back before you have enough time to finish what you’re doing, turn around, and kill them within seconds.
Respawn has said that the grunts will most likely stay this way, but I'm not sure if many players will be happy with this. Hopefully balancing will be done upon release.
