The game is apparently being set in the world of Titanfall and it will have purchases and loot boxes for cosmetic items which will make it similar to Overwatch. This also means that ingame performance will not be affected by the items that can be purchased in the game using real world money. Titanfall is known for the mecha combat as well as the parkour, grapples and more and these could be interesting as an addition to a battle royale game.
