Titanfall 2 is introducing a new pilot-only mode to its multiplayer, called Live Fire, and it will be accompanied by two maps playable only in that mode. It will be available in the next title update, says Respawn Entertainment.
Live Fire will be a six-on-six multiplayer game without any Titans. According to this update, it's a best-of-five rounds mode without any respawns. Teams win by eliminating the other side or by possessing a flag when the counter runs out.
The new maps are called Stacks and Meadow. "These two maps are tight, enclosed death boxes designed specifically for the fast-paced, intense nature of the mode," Respawn said.
The title update will also bring a new Coliseum map called Columns, a new Pilot execution animation, and "multiple new Commander intros for each faction." This update and all of its content will be free.
Additionally, Respawn is looking to introduce a new interface to Titanfall 2's playlist screen, agreeing with user feedback that splitting game modes between two screens is not ideal. "Our goal is to allow players to create their own ‘mixtapes’ and choose which modes they want to be matched in." Respawn said.
Live Fire will be the second free major content update for Titanfall 2. The first, delivered at the end of November, added Angel City to the game; it was a fan-favorite map from the first Titantfall. It also included new weapons, a new kit for the game's Titans and a new pilot execution.
