Today — via a blog post — developer Respawn announced and detailed Titanfall 2’s second and latest DLC, that notably adds a new mode called Live Fire, three new maps, and more.
Arguably the chief addition, Live Fire is a new “lightning fast” 6v6 Pilot only mode “that brings competitive, close quarter combat to the forefront.” More specifically, it’s a round-based best of 5 mode with no respawns, where you will only have one minute to eliminate the opposing team in order to win the round. You can also win the round if your team is holding the “neutral flag” when the round timer ends, and neither team has eliminated the other.
Respawn also announced that two brand new maps designed specifically for the new Live Fire mode — Stacks and Meadow — are also coming, and will be exclusive to the Live Fire playlist. These two maps are said to be “tight, enclosed death boxes designed specifically for the fast-paced, intense nature of the mode.”
But wait, there’s more maps. Respawn will also be introducing a brand-new Coliseum map called Columns. Further, another Pilot execution is on the way, as well as multiple new commander intros for each faction.
The developer said it will have more details on when the update will drop “soon,” and like the last DLC, this one will not cost you a penny.
In the same blog post, Respawn also said it is working on a significant update to its playlist interface, and that it agrees with the player feedback that it has been getting, complaining about having game modes split between two screens, saying it is “not an ideal user experience.” The developer said the new interface will come with the next content drop on consoles, and possibly a bit earlier on PC so it can be tested out.
Looking ahead, Respawn said it will reveal its roadmap of content for the next couple of months that will more maps, weapons, modes and more, “soon.”
