Titanfall's analog of the Prestige mode from Call of Duty is called Generations, and some of the game's maps contain features like ziplines and turrets, according to a purported leak of screenshots and information posted on the Titanfall subreddit today.
Citing a "reliable source pouring me information," Reddit user FallenFusion is posting details about Titanfall beyond what has been revealed by NeoGAF user RazorUK, who has been scouring the files of the beta on Windows PC over the last few weeks. In addition to 10 screenshots posted on Imgur (see below) that each show off a different map, FallenFusion has been providing information on elements like Generations.
According to a leaked screenshot of Generations, once Titanfall players reach the level cap, they'll be able to reset their progress — experience, unlocks and completed challenges, but not their Burn Card collection — to become a second-generation pilot, with a total of 10 generations to complete. Second-generation pilots earn experience at a rate that's 10 percent faster than normal; it appears that the rate keeps increasing for future generations. According to FallenFusion, some of Titanfall's 15 maps feature ziplines (see screenshot) that Pilots can use to traverse the land. And some arenas contain heavy turrets that are fixed, but can be hacked to fight for either team.
Titanfall's campaign reportedly features nine different matches — five rounds of Attrition (team deathmatch), and four of Hardpoint — and they're playable from both sides, Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation and Militia. Along with those two modes and the previously announced Capture the Flag and Last Titan Standing game types, Titanfall will apparently offer a fifth option called Pilot Hunter. In that mode, one point is awarded for every Pilot (human player) killed. Taking down AI opponents provides no points, but does lower the time to earn titans and regenerate the titan core ability.
We've reached out to developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts for comment on the leak, and will update this article with any information we receive. Titanfall will be released March 11 on PC and Xbox One, and on March 25 on Xbox 360. To see the beta in action, check out our 20-minute Overview video below.
