The Gen Inc "Titan" Project Blasts into Action!
The "Titan" is Gen Inc's attempt at utilizing a strong metal compound found aboard the UFO craft that crashed in the 70's. From the alien technology they created a prototype exoskeleton to serve in a military combat role. Abandoned or discontinued for whatever reason the "Titan" prototype lurks in Story Mode should you dare to explore lost Gen Inc Areas.
It's a 3 stage battle like the jeep (the image shown is the second stage) and the pilot utilizes a gatling gun and "blade arm" respectively while a female Gen Inc soldier mounts the grenade launcher and "Barrages" you with explosive, incendiary, flash, gas and even nitrogen rounds if she feels like it.
Let's hope you're up for the challenge Captain!
