In what is a bit of surprising news, Respawn Entertainment‘s hugely-popular FPS game Titanfall is being offered for a big discount today on Amazon as part of their Deal of the Day program. You can get the smash-hit that just released last month for just $37.
This deal is available for all versions of Titanfall, which is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. However, Amazon notes that the Xbox 360 version of the game may require an additional day or two to process.
Elsewhere on Amazon, today’s Lightning Deals aren’t too shabby either. The following is a list of games and the time they will be available for a discount.
- 9AM EDT – Skylanders SWAP Force Spy Rise and Rubble Rouser
- 1PM EDT – Turtle Beach Ear Force PX51 Premium Wireless Dolby Digital PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 Gaming Headset
- 3PM EDT – Turtle Beach Marvel Seven: Limited Edition Gaming Headset

- 1AM EDT – Beyond: Two Souls – PS3
Condemn (OR) Condone:
Considering it’s been selling like mad and it has only been out for one month has me shocked that any retailer would discount Titanfall so much, even if it is only for a day. If you already have Titanfall, some other quality games like Batman: Arkham Origins and Beyond: Two Souls are definitely ones to watch out for. Good day for gaming deals!
Finally, the highly anticipated Beyond: Two Souls release date has been announced as this October 8th. The game is from Quantic Dream and directed by David Cage, who were behind 2010’s phenomenal Heavy Rain. It will be exclusive to the PS3.
This is the plot synopsis from PlayStation.com:
“Born with a connection to a mysterious entity with incredible powers, Jodie was different. In an adventure spanning 15 years of her life, your actions will determine Jodie’s fate as she faces extraordinary challenges, danger, and heartwrenching loss on a journey to discover the truth of who she is. Beyond promises an emotionally-charged journey unlike any video game before.”
The game will be using real-life actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe as the lead characters.
The website also mentions a GameStop pre-order bonus. If you pre-order the game you will get additional scene DLC and a free upgrade to the special edition. The special edition includes an exclusive steelbook premium packaging, extensive behind the scenes features, a soundtrack, a dynamic PS3 theme and PSN avatar pack.
I personally can’t wait for this game to drop, as Heavy Rain was an experience unlike any other. Games have really come a long way, and with Heavy Rain and now Beyond: Two Souls we are seeing them become more and more like interactive movies. It will be difficult for David Cage to top his debut, but from what I’ve seen so far he is certainly on the right track.
