SXSW (South by Southwest) has expanded beyond its roots in music over the past few years, attracting a diverse array of people to become an annual hub of art, technology and other cultures. Microsoft and Respawn sought to treat its gaming fans to a once-in-a-lifetime experience over the week, launching its high-profile Titanfall game in Austin. The game, which takes cues from everywhere from Gundam Wing to Blade Runner, seeks to strike a balance between multiplayer experience and immersive individual play. During our time in Austin, lead artist Joel Emslie courteously gave us his interpretation on the significance of Titanfall. With the event having something for just about everyone – including a performance by Childish Gambino – enjoy our recap video above.
