Titanfall getting namable loadouts, filterable challenges and more

New, 45 comments

Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment categorizes free game updates into three categories, and game director Steve Fukuda took to the game's official website to tell players what features to expect in each — including loadouts you can name and filters to search through Challenges.

The first-person shooter's first type of update is designed to "tend the garden and keep the weeds out," Fukuda wrote, and they take the form of "minor tweaks and fixes" like weapon balance and matchmaking changes. He refers to the second group as "convenience features," like the recent Party Colors feature that lets players identify others in the game and its lobby.


"The next update will bring more convenience features such as: the ability to rename your custom loadouts and to make custom loadouts specific to each game mode," he wrote, "a way to filter your Challenges by criteria such as 'closest to complete,' and displaying the final scoreboard from your previous match in the Last Game Summary so you can review the scores at your leisure in the lobby."

The third and final type of update contains "infrastructural features," like the Private Match feature that was recently released in beta.

At PAX East last week, Respawn unveiled Expedition, the first pack of downloadable content for the game, which is slated for a May 2014 release. For more on the game, you can read and watch Polygon's Titanfall review and watch the Overview video above.
