The original Titanfall is an online-only experience, but developer Respawn Entertainment is hard at work changing things up for Titanfall 2. Not only will there be a single-player campaign, the developers promise it will be a more personal experience than you may be expecting.

In a blog post on the company’s site, game director Steve Fukuda gives out some additional details about the single-player experience. “ Titanfall 2’s single-player campaign is a carefully crafted, cinematic shooter experience, but with a different style of pacing than you might expect,” Fukuda said. “While you’ll experience a wide range of intense battles as a Pilot and as a Titan during your journey with BT [your Titan companion through the campaign], those experiences will be contrasted against opportunities for exploration and some quieter moments of contemplation.”

These quieter moments allow the characters to let personalities shine, and will include dialogue options for the player to choose from. “They have to be able to react to each other or there is no relationship. That’s why we provided players a few responses to choose from when talking to BT,” said Fukuda. “While these dialogue options don't change the outcome of the game, they give you a fun way to banter with BT by choosing the tone that best reflects your own personality.”

As for other updates, Fukuda mentions the campaign isn’t an extended training mission for the multiplayer. Respawn has worked hard on creating a compelling story, interesting characters and a unique world to explore. He even mentions the team was inspired by the fans of the original Titanfall asking to know more about the game’s universe.

“One thing that surprised us after the release of the first Titanfall was just how much fans wanted to learn about the universe,” Fukada said. “This sentiment gave us an extra push to find ways of delivering lore across all parts of Titanfall 2.”

Titanfall 2 comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC via Origin on Oct. 28.
