Titanfall 2‘s latest free DLC pack launches today, and it comes with a couple of new maps, a new execution, and the addition of a third weapon slot. This pack comes alongside an update to the game which tweaks and fixes certain parts of the game.
The most significant addition is the War Games map, which is a remaster of two different maps from the original Titanfall. According to a post on Respawn’s website, War Games features “the civilian shops, city streets, and tall buildings for window-to-window fighting from the Battle of Angel City,” but it also contains “the large, open tank garage facilities for hand-to-hand Pilot combat from the Battle of Airbase Sierra.” War Games has a VR simulation aesthetic much different than the original maps. You can see it in action in the video below, and be sure to watch our livestream of the DLC here.
The pack also comes with a new map for the Live Fire mode, which pits pilots against pilots without Titans. The map is called Traffic, and it is set in “a weathered test site where pilot positioning is pitted against mobility across two busy thoroughfares,” the post states.
In addition to the two maps, the DLC adds a shadow-boxing Pilot execution, Titan Brawl as a permanent game mode, and a third weapon slot. Previously, Pilots only had access to a primary weapon and either a sidearm or an anti-Titan weapon. Now, they can carry a primary, a secondary, and an anti-Titan weapon.
The new patch contains several quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes, such as a decrease to Amped Weapon damage and a change that makes the dropship leave as soon as everyone is on board. You can see the full list of patch notes at the bottom of this article.
