Titanfall 2 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Remember, a few years ago, when bow and arrows started popping up in tons of different games? Well, this year's equivalent appears to be the grappling hook. Not content with putting in an appearance in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, it seems like the mechanic will be added to Titanfall 2. That's according to a Reddit leak, which has since been removed.

In addition to posting the embedded artwork, the supposed whistle-blower revealed that you'll be using your grappling hook in various ways, such as "getting into your Titan, aiding with free-running, or tactical plays such as pulling enemies while they're in mid-air". It all sounds incredibly fun, doesn't it? Let's hope that this part of the leak is accurate.

The poster also claims that maps will be much bigger than in its predecessor, which makes a lot of sense – developer Respawn no longer has to accommodate for the Xbox 360, after all. Furthermore, an October release date is touted, which would put it in the same timeframe as Battlefield 1. Likely? We'll see, but publisher EA has said that it's not worried about its two FPS titles deploying during the same period, so why not?
