The Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Technical Test Is Live on PS4 & Xbox One

August 19, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that the Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Technical Test is now live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Open for everyone, you can download the 12.5GB Tech Test client from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Games Store by following the links.

With a level cap of 10, this first test runs from today, August 19 to Sunday, August 21. The second test, which raises the level cap to 15, will then run from August 26 to 28. Both weekends include two all-new Titans (Ion and Scorch), Pilot tactical abilites, and a variety of weapons.

Here’s what you’ll find in the first test this weekend:

Modes

  • 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.

Maps

  • 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.

The second weekend then adds the 6v6 Amped Hardpoint mode and Forward Base Kodai map.

As Respawn explains on their website, the Tech Test “is specifically designed to stress-test the multiplayer servers Respawn is using for Titanfall 2.”

Will you be playing Titanfall 2 this weekend?
