New Titanfall 2 Update Adding Maps, Third Weapon Slot
Respawn has provided details on the next update for Titanfall 2, which launches next week. Its primary additions come in the form of a pair of maps and a change to the number of weapons players can carry.
The first of the maps is called War Games, which looks to be a revival of the DLC map from the original Titanfall. It’s meant to be a simulation of a city, but it features brightly colored walls and barriers that give it a distinct look.
“Pilots on the Frontier frequently use simulator pods to train, using life-like recreations of historical battles as combat scenarios,” the official description reads. “War Games highlights the civilian shops, tall buildings for window-to-window fighting, and city streets for Titan combat from the Battle of Angel City, and the large, open tank garage facilities for hand-to-hand Pilot combat from the Battle of Airbase Sierra. The outskirts of the map feature a clean, VR style perfect for Titan duels, while Pilots are often found running along the bright, interconnected wallrunning routes.”
The other new map, Traffic, is for Live Fire mode. It’s described as a “weathered test site where pilot positioning is pitted against mobility across two busy thoroughfares. Dense cover makes every corner a threat, with room for snipers to hide in the back fields.” You can see a screenshot of this in the gallery above.
Arguably more significant than new content is the ability to carry around three weapons as a Pilot. You’re now able to carry around a primary, secondary, and an anti-Titan weapon while on-foot.
Also coming in this update is a new Pilot Execution called Shadow Boxing. This is unlocked by killing 20 Pilots with a holopilot ability active. Additionally, Titan Brawl is being added as a permanent mode, while Free Agents will become the new featured mode. Titan Brawl sees a small change, as the game will now display Titan damage rather than assists.
Other changes, including balance tweaks, will be made as part of this update, but the particulars–as well as a trailer–won’t be revealed until “closer to launch.” Fortunately, that’s right around the corner, as Respawn plans to launch the patch for all platforms on June 27.
