Respawn rolling out Titanfall patch today!

-

Do you ever find yourself on the battlefield in Titanfall wishing to put yourself up against your friends for a change? Well this patch coming to all platforms might be of interest!

The main focus of the patch is to allow a beta version of Private Matches to be implemented which means it will be possible for gamers to face-off against friends. All the modes and maps featured in Classic Multiplayer will be available to choose and you can have any amount of participants from 2 to 12 (Max two teams of 6).

I foresee only a couple of potential drawbacks and the main one being you can’t earn any XP or progress towards existing challenges/achievements. It could have been abused by some if they were allowed so this is understandable. At the moment there’s no options for score limits, round times etc. However these will come in time and currently any party member in the lobby can change the modes or maps whilst also being able to start the game.

There are quite a few (ok there’s loads) minor changes to note as well and they are listed below –

Party Colours – Your party members and their titans now show up on the mini-map with green colours, instead of the normal blue colours that other friendlies use.

Auto-Titan Colour in Obituary – Your auto-titan’s name now shows up in the obituary with the gold colour that your own name does.

Menu Changes – “Play Multiplayer” is now the default (top) option on the private lobby menu.

Game Version on Main Menu – The main menu now displays the game’s version in the bottom-left corner.

Party App Shortcut in Menus (Xbox One only) – Added a shortcut on all menus that opens the Xbox One’s “Party” app.

The Gooser Challenge – The Gen 5 challenge requirement ‘Gooser’, requiring players to kill 50 ejecting pilots, will be reduced to 5 in total.

40mm magazine capacity for default and Extended Mag – Default capacity reduced from 20 rounds to 12 and the extended mag from 25 to 16.

Titan Quad Rocket mag size change – An increase by 1 for both the default capacity and the extended mag.

Titan Quad Rocket damage vs Titan shields – Damage upped vs. Titan shields so you can take the shield down before having to reload.

Titan Quad Rocket ‘Rapid Fire’ Mod’s mag size change – Upped the magazine size for the Quad Rocket’s Rapid Fire Mod from 16 to 18.

Amped Kraber Titan damage change – We upped the damage that the Amped Kraber Burn Card does to Titans from 100 to 800.
