Thousands of gamers queued late into the night across the UK to celebrate the release of the most anticipated game of 2014, Titanfall. Exclusive to Xbox, the game is expected to break Xbox One sales records and be one of the best-selling titles this year.
To celebrate the launch, free runners dressed as Pilot characters from the game performed stunts for London commuters along Millennium Bridge and the South Bank, emulating the abilities of players in the game. On Thursday evening The Boiler House at the Old Truman Brewery was transformed into a scene from the game. Fans and celebrity attendees including Jonathan Ross, The Voice UK judge Ricky Wilson and Professor Green, played the first truly next generation multiplayer game as parkour free-runners staged a series of breath-taking stunts including wall running across the venue.
