Gamescom has brought us many surprises already, but there is just one more. That is the announcement from EA and Respawn who revealed some more details about the upcoming betas and some details about Titanfall 2.
As part of this, Respawn will be hosting not one but two weekend betas from August 19th to August 21st. During those betas, there will be two modes and two maps available to play.
After that, there will be second beta weekend from August 26th to August 28th, this will offer the same content, but with additional map and mode on top.
There will be two new Titans available to use, Ion and Scorch, alongside new Pilot abilities that include Grapple, Holo Point and Pulse Blade.
Both of the beta weekends will be available on the Xbox One and on the PlayStation 4.
Here are the full details from EA:
- Bounty Hunt (5v5): A brand new mode that pits Pilots and their teammates against an opposing team as well as the Remnant Fleet. Earn bonuses by killing grunts and enemies, but make sure and deposit all your points at the bank between waves without getting killed.
- Pilots vs. Pilots (8v8): Players can be the best Pilot on the Frontier and put their combat and mobility skills to the ultimate test in this classic 8 vs 8 Pilots only mode.
- Amped Hardpoint (6v6–second weekend only): A new twist on Hardpoint Domination from the original game; now defending a Hardpoint will let you amp it, giving your team double score. Team work is the key to securing victory.
Boomtown: A secret underground IMC facility where the latest in R&D is put to the test. In this facility Pilots can use the many peaked roofs to use as cover against combatants below. With tight lanes through the middle, Titans can also be easily ambushed.
Homestead: The IMC have claimed Imminent Domain on a small commune’s plot of land. With a series of raised, rocky plateaus and a river running down the middle, Pilots are mostly safe from Titans among the rocks and trees but they also can duck into the caves and building when needed. However, the Titans control the large rolling fields.
Forward Base Koda (second weekend only): Militia forces have taken over an IMC substation and set up a forward operating base. Pilots can find safety from Titans in the hallways and chambers of the main building, while Titans can walk over the roof to get a better view of the action.
