The sixth update for Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall is out today for Xbox One and PC, and it brings with it a new mode and other features to shake up the game.
The most offbeat new addition is the “Pilot Skirmish” mode as a Featured Game Mode, an 8 vs. 8 mode which lets players fight it out pilot-to-pilot. No Titans and no bots.
Marked for Death, game mode that was introduced as a previous Featured Game Mode, will also get a permanent slot. Marked for Death is a lethal version of “It” in which one player on each team becomes the marked target and must be defended by their side and hunted down by the opposition.
Other features added in game update six will include: some modes to make screen information easier to understand for colorblind pilots (kudos to Respawn for adding this feature); the ability to buy individual Burn Cards on the Black Market introduced in update five; a new rare burn card called Roll The Dice that lets you tap your whole deck during a match (I guess the “I Win Card” was too on the nose); a Burn Card Autofill for those that sometimes forget to add cards; and no more penalties for joining matches late. If you join after the halfway point of the match you get the win if you win, you don’t take the loss if you lose.
The update will also include a number of optimizations, gameplay tweaks, and bugfixes. You can read it all here.
The update should be also coming to the Xbox 360 soon.
