Titanfall: Microsoft Boasts “Hundreds of Thousands” Playing the “Most Anticipated Game of the Year”

on March 14, 2014 9:28 PM

Today Titanfall launched in the UK, and Microsoft sent a quite enthusiastic press release explaining that things are going quite well both across the Channel and in the US.

Elsewhere, thousands of gamers queued late into the night across the UK to be the first to pick up their copy of “Titanfall”. Currently the highest-scoring game on Xbox One and exclusive to Xbox & PC, the game is expected to break Xbox One sales records and be one of the best-selling titles this year.

Xbox UK Marketing Director Harvey Eagle accompanied the announcement with a comment:

Titanfall is the most anticipated game of the year. It’s already won more than 80 awards from critics around the world. Millions of gamers around the world played the Xbox One Titanfall beta and hundreds of thousands have been playing since Tuesday when it launched in the US. Xbox One is the best place to play Titanfall and there has never been a better time to join the new console generation.

Below you can check out a few pictures from the UK launch event in London. One thing is for sure: those are some really awesome costumes.

We reached out to the UK’s Department of Health seeking information on how many citizens were forced to stay home with a sudden case of Titanflu today, and we’ll keep you posted if we receive any relevant detail.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
