Single Player:

An Action Adventure Experience:

As an infantryman trapped behind enemy lines, you must develop your skills under fire to become a full-fledged Pilot, fighting as one with your Titan.



    Due to the radically skewed population and wealth distribution on Earth Jack Cooper’s family relocated to the Frontier in search of a better life when he was an infant. The rural Frontier community they inhabited was subjected to harassment and exploitation by IMC garrisons. As the IMC continued to disrupt the livelihoods of the people in his home system, Cooper volunteered as a Militia Rifleman 3rd Class to free the Frontier from the oppression of the IMC.

  • BT-7274

    BT-7274 is a Vanguard-class Titan, the first to be designed by the Militia. A Vanguard-class Titan must obey three protocols:
    Protocol 1: Link to Pilot
    Protocol 2: Uphold the Mission
    Protocol 3: Protect the Pilot
    While the IMC considers its Titans and Pilots to be interchangeable and disposable, the Militia views each of its new Vanguard Pilot-Titan units as a long-term investment. As a result, an experienced Vanguard Titan-Pilot team is far more flexible and deadlier than any single IMC Titan and Pilot on the Frontier.


    Captain Tai Lastimosa grew up on the Frontier planet of Harmony long before it became the headquarters for the Militia. One of the first veteran Pilots to serve in the newly formed elite Militia unit, the Special Recon Squadron (SRS), Lastimosa tested the earliest prototypes of the Vanguard-class Titan. He was neural linked to BT-7274 roughly three years prior to Operation Broadsword.


    As a child, Commander Sarah Briggs lost several family members to incidents in which the IMC displaced Frontier citizens by force. As a result, she vowed to take revenge on the IMC refusing to rest until the enemy is wiped from the Frontier. Sarah commands one of the Militia’s elite combat unit, the SRS: the Marauder Corps.


    Kuben Blisk is a South African mercenary currently employed by the IMC’s ARES Division. His unit, the Apex Predators, provides “customized security solutions” for the IMC’s operations on Typhon.


    A high ranking officer within the IMC’s military research division, General Marder oversees the operations on Typhon. He sees the Militia as a shortsighted, angry mob blocking humanity’s progress on the Frontier – a nuisance to be eliminated. Employing high quality mercenaries to bolster his allocation of IMC forces, Marder’s ARES Division seeks “emergent technologies” to decisively resolve the Frontier War in favor of the IMC.




Featuring six all new Titans, a host of deadly new technology, and expanded Pilot abilities, Titanfall 2 is an adrenaline-fueled multiplayer experience that continues the Titanfall legacy of elevating the shooter genre.

Towering over anything that stands in their path, Titans are lethal weapons wrapped in armor and designed to take a punch…or a sword…or a rocket.



GAMING | Battlefield 1: A Word from Senior Producer Aleksander Grøndal



A Word from Senior Producer Aleksander Grøndal


As Battlefield 1 is rolling out worldwide, I’m looking back on a journey that started with a daring pitch from the team here at DICE. Fast forward a few years, and it’s almost surreal to see you getting your hands on the final result, facing the dawn of all-out war with the rest of the community.

With Battlefield 1, we wanted to create a fresh new take on the franchise, keeping that classic and unmistakable flavor that is Battlefield intact. It was a gamble. We knew that. 

But with such a unique game setting like the Great War, many unique gameplay options came with it. Judging from your reactions (not to mention how much fun we’ve had with the game ourselves) I dare say the gamble has paid off.

Nothing fills me more with joy than hearing your stories from the game – how you won that dog fight, found that weapon pickup, or turned that round of Conquest around at the last minute. I look forward to many more stories of that kind.

See you on the battlefield!






We’re knee deep in the trenches playing this wonderfully created masterpiece! We love it! From the detailing of every weapon to the way you’re educated on the basic skills and controls of the game. EA brought together the best to create something very special.

Already a classic in the making. Easy 9/10 score.

Game Review | EA Mirror’s Edge Catalyst 



Following the recent launch of Mirror’s EdgeCatalyst we decided to give it a go! Available as a digital download on Xbox One, Origin™ for PC,  and PlayStation 4 and all good/bad gaming retail stores!

Developer: EA DICE
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Released: June, 2016
£$€: €59.99

The game invites you to step into the shoes of Faith – a self-assured Runner thrown into a struggle against the oppressive Conglomerate in the city of Glass. Explore Glass from the beautifully lit rooftops to the dark and gritty tunnels below. Run free in the city districts with Faith at the centre of it all. Through the first-person perspective, use your fluid movement and combat skills to master the environment and become the catalyst of change. Sounds complex, right?!


Faith_Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Faith has been away for nearly eight years in the development, and while this continuation doesn’t feel as fresh or innovative as the original, there’s still a lot to love about this futuristic adventure.  Despite her run-in with the law, once she’s back on the streets she’s ready to run again and links up with some old friends and develops an instant friendly rivalry of sorts with a young up-and-comer. Of course, a job goes awry, and Faith finds herself embroiled in a fight against the city’s powerful conglomerate and sees her past come back to haunt her.


Mirror’s Edge Catalyst producer, Amo Mostofi

“We are excited to see players explore the city of Glass and experience the thrilling adventure we’ve crafted for the last few years,

Players will also get a competitive experience through the Social Play features and the online challenges coming from our team and from the community. They’ll also be able to keep an eye on the city and their friends’ performances through The Beat, available on or as a companion app on mobile devices.”

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is now offered in as an open world platform. Rather than being dropped at a starting point and tasked with getting to point A,B or C, players have more freedom in how they approach the game. There’s a large city to explore. Fortunately, Catalyst’s massive open-world has enough distractions to make you overlook many of the game’s faults. However, this quickly wears a little thin when your mind focuses back on the actual game and not free running around roof tops!

Travelling between districts feels pretty cool, thanks to the way DICE create player movement through visual effects and sound design. Bolting through the city at an unbroken full speed!

Along with the main story, there are several side stories/quests to achieve, as well as tower climbing challenges! Which look and feel quite similar to another climbing block-buster game!!



In conclusion; Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a step up and definitely going open world was the most natural step in the right direction. However, it does become a tad bit boring after continued play and with all it’s impressive visual effects, it’s not enough to continue…

Rating: 6.5/10 (exciting at first; but ran out of steam far too quickly!)stars
