Xbox One's Cloud Computing A Major Draw For Respawn's Titanfall

Posted on Tuesday, June 18 @ 07:47:45 PST by Alex_Osborn


Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment's first game, will be available exclusively on the PC and Xbox platforms. One major reason the game will not be appearing on the PlayStation 4 has to do with the benefits that come from cloud computing.

Studio founder Vince Zampella explained to IGN that neither EA nor Respawn initially planned to go exclusive with Microsoft, but the advantage that its hardware provides was too appealing to pass up. “It allowed us to think of the game a little differently,” he said.

The game offloads computer AI to the cloud as well as dedicated servers, providing a far more smooth and enjoyable online experience.

With regard to cross-platform play, Respawn is hesitant, knowing full well that PC gamers have the advantage thanks to mouse and keyboard controls. “I mean, we’ll see. If it turns out to be less of an issue than I think it is, then, well … we’ll obviously look at it, but I’m not convinced yet,” Zampella added.

Do you think Titanfall will be the Xbox One's killer app in 2014? If you haven't already done so, be sure to check out our preview of the game right here.
