Last month, Respawn Entertainment released the long-awaited sequel to their mech-inspired first-person shooter. TitanFall 2 might have failed to reach impressive first-week sales status but it is without a doubt one of the best shooters currently on the market. To coincide with the game’s release, Prima Games also released a collector’s edition guide for the game. Here is a quick overview of what you can expect from this comprehensive and helpful guide.
This 304-page collector’s edition strategy guide includes a full-color 14-month TitanFall 2 themed calendar, a detailed campaign walkthrough, customization options and recommended combat tactics for Pilots and Titans, an extensive overview of all the multiplayer maps and secrets, online multiplayer strategies, Pilot helmet locations and a complimentary eGuide. The authors behind this guide are Dan Herrera, David Knight, and Thomas Hindmarch and the retail price for the complete package is $39.99.
One new aspect about TitanFall 2 that was missing from the first game is the addition of a solid single-player story mode. Throughout this campaign, there are several Pilot helmets to find and collect. Most gamers may aim to play through the game in its entirety before going back to acquire all of the collectibles. With this guide handy, you could essentially collect everything on the first go around and invest all your extra time into the immersive multiplayer experience.
Speaking of multiplayer, strategy is the key to achieving success on the battlefield. It’s very easy to jump into a game like this and be decimated by the competition without proper knowledge on how to defend yourself. The guide offers excellent advice on how to get the most out of each multiplayer matchup and will help you improve your play style over time. Most people may prefer to learn as they go and might not need to rely on the guide for assistance. However, if you’re struggling and want to find an easy way to not only improve but also acquire all the multiplayer trophies or achievements, then this guide is definitely for you. Below are a few additional screenshots taken directly from the guide.
With all this said, is this Collector’s edition guide worth buying right now? That depends solely on your budget and how much of a fan you are of the franchise. The 14-month calendar might not be a strong selling point for most and in this case, Prima has other cheaper options available for you. The standard edition guide can be purchased for only $24.99 and an eGuide could be bought directly from the Prima games website for $9.99. It’s worth noting that TitanFall 2 doesn’t have a season and this makes purchasing the guide sound like an even better deal for those who need it.
