Titanfall 2 launches big update and trial weekend

Titanfall 2 [official site] has launched a big free update adding a new map and more so, to celebrate, a free trial is running this weekend. Until Monday, all and sundry can
swing by Origin to play the full multiplayer side and one singleplayer chapter. Titanfall 2 was our favourite FPS of 2016 for bringing together the two best things in FPSs — giant robots and fun, fast movement — and I heartily recommend giving it a go. Read the rest of this entry »

Titanfall 2 launches new mode today, Live Fire

A new Titanfall 2 [official site] multiplayer mode, Live Fire, arrives today in a free update. Two teams of six have left their robot buddies at home for the day, and will scampering around on foot (and jets, and grapple lines) to shoot each other to pieces in one-minute rounds. Live Fire sounds pretty intense and fun, so I look forward to giving it a crack when it arrives… soon? Respawn Entertainment haven’t said quite yet when it’ll launch. Today. With a little luck, before I finish work. Here, peep at this trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Titanfall 2 adding ‘Live Fire’ one-minute mode for free

A zippy new multiplayer mode is coming to Titanfall 2 [official site], offering 6v6 Pilot-only close-quarters action with one-minute rounds. I know a lot of our gushing about our favourite FPS of 2016 has focused on its campaign but the multiplayer is cracking too. It doesn’t hurt that all new multiplayer modes and modes are free. So yes, the new mode is named Live Fire and it should arrive in the next big content update with two maps of its own. Read the rest of this entry »

Titanfall 2’s multiplayer is having a free weekend

Of the big three killshoots that we have seen vying for supremacy in the closing moments of hellyear 2016, Titanfall 2 [official site] has earned our respect the most. It has giant robots and magic boots, everything a growing FPS fan needs. If you didn’t pick it up in the recent silly sale, don’t fret, there’s still a chance to see if it’s worth the full price, because its multiplayer side will be free to try this weekend.

Titanfall 2’s first free map dropping from orbit next week

The first new Titanfall 2 [official site] multiplayer map will arrive next week and, well, it’s not really a new one. Respawn Entertainment have fancied up the first Titanfall’s map Angel City for the sequel, see. They’ve rolled it into an update along with a new weapon for pilot and new weapon options for titans, and the whole thing will launch next Wednesday. As promised, the map will be free (though there is one bit of silliness afoot, I’ll explain in a bit). The gang have also detailed their plans for future updates, including special temporary modes with different rules. Read the rest of this entry »

Terrific Titanfall 2 is £25 on Amazon UK

Twenty five quid! Just three weeks ago, at launch, Titanfall 2 [official site] was twice the price on Origin. I’m always wary of telling people whether I think a game offers “value for money” because the value of forty quid is entirely relative to how many quids – or cash of another currency – a person has. When I reviewed Titanfall 2 I did mention the pricetag though because I was keen to recommend the game for its singleplayer as much as for the multiplayer. If you were unlikely to play online, it felt important to mention that fifty quid was getting you a short (but excellent) campaign.

Now, three weeks after release, Amazon UK are selling the game for £25. That gets you an Origin code and plenty of bot for your buck. Read the rest of this entry »
