The sixth downloadable content drop for Titanfall 2, called “The War Games,” will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC on June 27, developer Respawn Entertainment announced in a blog post today.
The DLC features a new map, also called War Games, which combines the elements of old Titanfall maps Angel City and Airbase in a VR-styled simulator landscape. Another new map in the update, Traffic, is “a weathered test site” across two busy roads that is only available in the 6-on-6 Pilots-only Live Fire mode. A new execution move named “Shadow Boxing” will be added as well, and requires 20 pilot kills while a holopilot ability is active to unlock.
Other changes in the update include adding Titan Brawl to the permanent list of game modes, a new featured mode called “Free Agents,” and a third weapon slot for Pilot loadouts. Now Pilots can equip a primary weapon, a secondary weapon, and an anti-titan weapon. Previously, players had to choose between either a pistol or an anti-titan weapon as their secondary slot. Respawn says more information on new features, balance changes, and a trailer will come closer to launch.
Additionally, Respawn wrote in the blog post that Titanfall 2 will support the Xbox One X with “4K resolution for increased fidelity as well as support for dynamic super scaling.” The studio also teased the game’s July update will include a returning mode from the original Titanfall.
