Produced by Respawn Entertainment and distributed by Electronic Arts exclusively for Microsoft's Xbox and PC platforms, the game carries a US price tag of $60.
Titanfall is being released Tuesday in the Americas, Russia and parts of Asia, and on Thursday in India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe. The release will be Friday in Britain, Ireland and Portugal.
Microsoft and Sony both had strong holiday sales but so far in 2014 PS4 has been leading, according to the research firm NPD.
Priced $100 more than the $399 PlayStation 4, the Xbox One is trailing behind in sales. In February, Microsoft announced an Xbox One and "Titanfall" bundle for $499, effectively offering the game for free.
