With EA confirming that Titanfall 2’s gameplay reveal will happen next month, it seems a few gameplay details have leaked out ahead of time.

Over on Reddit, a poster who has since deleted his account released what appears to be concept art and few gameplay details of Titanfall 2. You can check out the screen above, with the purported leaked info below.

I’ve been sitting on some Titanfall 2 information that was shared with me, and I’ve finally got the go ahead to post.
Titanfall 2 will release in October and the Mountain dew leak is indeed legitimate. They’ve added a ton of new pilot abilities including the addition of a grappling hook. My source said you can use it quite extensively, for getting into your Titan, aiding free-running, or tactical plays such as pulling enemies while they’re midair. The pre-order bonus will be a handgun called the Violator. Multiplayer maps are bigger which I can assume they upped the player count to go along with them.
The left side of this will be the box art.
Stay tuned.

Obviously, this info should be taken with a grain of salt. We’ve contacted EA and will reply once they’ve responded. 

What do you think? Would you want grappling hooks in your shooter? Bear in mind Titanfall isn’t your typical FPS since your in-game avatar will do a lot of air traversal, so a grappling hook does make sense.

Don’t forget to check back next month for EA’s “Play” event which PlayStation LifeStyle will attend to get you the latest news and previews straight from the show floor.
