Next Free Titanfall 2 DLC Drop Includes New 6v6 Mode, New Maps

January 13, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


Respawn has announced that the next free Titanfall 2 DLC drop is “coming soon,” and will include a new mode called Live Fire, new maps, a significant update to the playlist interface, and more.

A 6v6 Pilot-only mode that focuses on competitive, close quarter combat, Live Fire will include two new dedicated maps, Stacks and Meadow. Respawn adds:

A round-based best of 5 mode with no respawns, you will have one minute to eliminate the opposing team in order to win the round. You can also win the round if your team is holding the neutral flag when the round timer ends. It’s fast, frantic, and sure to help hone those teamwork and mobility skills. We’re also introducing two brand new maps designed specifically for Live Fire: Stacks and Meadow. Playable only in the Live Fire playlist, these two maps are tight, enclosed death boxes designed specifically for the fast-paced, intense nature of the mode.

The upcoming content drop will also include a new Coliseum map called Columns, another Pilot execution, multiple new Commander intros for each Faction, and a significant update to the playlist interface. Acknowledging that “having game modes split between two screens is not an ideal user experience,” Respawn says:

Our goal is to allow players to create their own ‘mixtapes’ and choose which modes they want to be matched in. Would you like to match in just Attrition, Amped Hardpoint, and Last Titan Standing? Simply select the modes you want and hit play. We’ll talk more about this and more in the coming weeks.

Later this year, Respawn plans to release more maps (including more remasters of maps from Titanfall), weapons, modes, and more. Expect a roadmap for the next couple of months to arrive soon.

If you missed it, Titanfall 2 was our Best Shooter of 2016.
