A new Titanfall titan class known as the Atlas has been revealed in the latest trailer from developer, Respawn Studios.
Adding to the previously encountered Ogre and Stryder titan class video explanations, the Atlas is the newest member of the titan family.
The Titanfall Atlas titan is known as the ‘workhorse’ of all the classes and is the longest standing titan model, especially in comparison to the newer Stryder and Ogre classes.
“Take a deep look at the Atlas class titan. Known as the workhouse of the titan classes, the Atlas excels where all other models fall short,” explains the YouTube blurb. “The Atlas continues to out-perform technologies on every battlefield.”
It is known for its ability to multi-role and doesn’t have one specific strength, but is a jack of all trades.
In comparison to the lumbering Ogre titan class, the Atlas provides increased mobility, but still has good protection to offer its pilot.
“As the workhouse of the IMC titan fleet, it has survived every encounter and mission scenarios and continues to outperform competing technologies on every battlefield,” adds the Atlas Hammond Robotics announcement trailer.
The Atlas is also described as being ‘dependable’ and ‘powerful’, whilst always being able to achieve the results necessary to win.
“The Atlas represents the state-of-the-art in weapons platforms and provides good protection and increased mobility over the Ogre chassis. Whether the mission demands reconnaissance, rapid assault, fire support, tactical support, or a combination of all these, Atlas frontline elements are dependable, powerful and, importantly, get results.”
From the descriptions provided, it doesn’t even seem the Atlas class has any specific weak points either, so could be a good titan class to pick initially when you’re becoming familiar with Titanfall.
The Stryder titan class is the most agile of those revealed so far, and isn’t capable of withstanding much damage.
The Ogre on the other hand is best known for its heavy armour design that defeats enemies using brute force.
Titanfall will launch for PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 14, 2014 in the UK. Unfortunately it will never be released for PS3 or PS4, after EA Games announced the game’s Microsoft exclusivity.
