It's based on Earth's history, but also includes a high amount of fiction. It will have a "deep history", just as Warcraft and Starcraft.
They're intending to include many Warcraft elements into Titan's world. Mostly Easter Eggs, but can also extend to entire characters being ported into the new game, one way or another.
There will be a lot of Time Travel.
When it comes to weapons, we'll have almost everything at our disposal, from magic to guns.
Heavy use of Greek, Roman and Viking myths.
They've invited some established writers (Richard A. Knaak for example) to help with the storyline.
It's an MMORPG. We'll play from a 3rd person view, but there will also be a first person view during "events". No extra clarification as to the nature of these events could be given.
TAB targeting in combat.
It will benefit from a completely new game engine.
Graphics will be in the established "Blizzard style".
Primarily a PC game, but next-gen consoles are still being considered. Probably after launch, as with D3.
Expected 12+ PEGI.
It's designed with eSports in mind. They will try to grow it into a successful eSport.
There will be "clan" housing. No details on player-housing.
Last but not least, the game will have an Auction House. Nothing conclusive about a Real-Money Auction House but it is possible. As an extra tidbit, Blizzard was also considering introducing a RMAH into WoW at one point, but apparently not anymore.
150 developers working on it now. Last we've been told, in September last year, there were just a bit over 100, so the team is growing at a nice pace, quickly becoming the biggest one. They're about to bring new Community Managers into the team and some testers that will be needed in the near future. Many of the new team members have come from Blizzard's other projects.
Speaking of inside transfers, Jay Wilson is on the Titan team. Please don't go overboard with this. ^^
English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish localization now. More will come during beta.
They were considering implementing easy in-game recording at one point, unsure of the state of this at the moment.
BLIZZCON 2013 - Titan Teaser, details on expansions for all other major franchises (SC2, D3, WoW). There will be other small Titan teasers at the event but nothing major. They don't want to show any game-play until they have a solid date for beta.
Speaking of which, current plan is to open Family & Friends testing in Q1 2014.
The game has a name already that has been changed multiple times over the course of the development process. Unknown unfortunately.
They're going full-out when it comes to the soundtrack. Each zone will have its own song, and the songs will vary vastly in type, rhythm. We've reported before that Jason Hayes has returned to Blizzard, so this is definitely not surprising.
I'm not going to lie, this sounds AWESOME!!! Also, Titan is in fact an MMORPG and in direct competion with WoW (and not the MMOFPS I was hoping for). However, I'm so dmn heavily vested into WoW and this game seems to be WoW 2.0 -- the natural successor. I didn't read anything about IMPORTING MY CHARACTER (God that would be PERFECT) or anything. Basically, I've invested so much of my life building up this character / my accounts that I really don't want to part with them... Am I the only one who has this type of reaction and actually get depressed reading about Titan? The only company that can put out a game that can in fact kill will Wow is blizzard themselves...
nn flames / spams / and "QQ more" comments. I'm a very avid collector of TCG / Recipes / Mounts / etc and WoW is my hobby and I'm sure I'm not alone...
