Respawn Entertainment and EA Inc.’s Titanfall for Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One ranked in the top three pre-order sales this week at GameStop Corp. due to building demand.
This week, the Titanfall Xbox One SKU ranked as the No. 3 best-selling pre-order product at GameStop.com.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall, to be sold Mar. 11, will include ground and mech combat. The title will include a single player campaign and multiplayer mode.
The Xbox One SKU is said to utilize cloud computing resources to offload physics and AI routines.
