Titanfall 2 is a game that has some really cool super-powers. I got the opportunity to talk with one of the senior gameplay engineers, John Hennessey, about how they made these powers possible.
The cool super powers are a staple of superhero movies. However, the City of Titans is looking to create its own unique set of powers that will be used in their game.
In any superhero MMORPG, perfecting your abilities is crucial. It’s possible that your game may sink if they don’t look, feel, or operate in the manner that players anticipate. That puts a lot of weight on Fred Prince, the senior gameplay engineer for City of Titans, who has been charged with doing exactly that.
Prince discusses the process and details of power generation in a new interview on the site. He concentrates on the travel abilities that the team has been concentrating on recently.
Prince stated, “I’m working on a number of various travel abilities.” “When it comes to teleporting, I want to do something a bit different from what we’ve seen so far. Wall crawling has been improved to give it a more strong feel (for the time being, that’s all I’ll say). Wall running and super jumping are being practiced. I’m also working on overlaying the travel abilities so that they all flow together naturally within reason.”
Combat, according to Prince, is all about feeling. Because fans don’t want twitch-based fighting, the team is developing a “custom aiming approach” to help with dynamic conflict.
So, how’s it doing with City of Titans? “Things have ramped up a lot recently,” Prince said. “I’m really pleased with the progress we’ve made.”
