June Titanfall update detailed by Respawn, will add new game modes
Respawn might not have had any major announcements at E3 2014, but the studio has detailed the June update for Titanfall.
The update, playable on the showfloor, will introduce two fresh game modes, add new Burn Cards and customisation options. While some smaller changes will include ” burn card overflow protection, new menu art and the ability for auto-titans to use smoke and particle walls.”
The update, which is coming to Xbox One next month and Xbox 360 soon thereafter, includes:
Marked for Death – MFD is a 6v6 mode where one player per team is “Marked for Death”. Teams need to protect their own marked player while hunting down the enemy Pilot. Once a target is killed, new Pilots are marked. This is a fast paced mode that challenges players to fully explore maps and coordinate as a team.
Wingman LTS – This is a 2v2 version of Last Titan Standing. It’s our first non 6v6 mode and relies on teamwork and strategy. Great for players who want to play an even more tactical version of LTS.
Titan Burn Cards – Burn cards are no longer just for Pilots. Titan cards include amped weapons and enhanced Titan abilities.
Titan Customization(Visual and voice over) – Players will be able to choose between 3 Titan VO packs. “Betty” is the original voice and this update adds Lisa and Jeeves. Players will also be able to select Titan decals. You’ll unlock these as you complete challenges in the game and apply them to the front of your Titan. Our friends over at Penny Arcade were kind enough to contribute a cool decal to the mix too!
Matchmaking Updates – Titanfall now shows when players are connecting into a lobby as well as shuffling teams to keep skill levels and matches closer.
Expedition, the first of three Titanfall DLC packs, hit Xbox One on May 15th.
