Respawn Entertainment and EA Games has announced the dates for the Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Technical Tests with the first one kicking off this weekend. From Friday, August 19th – fans can get a taste of Titanfall 2 with two new multiplayer modes across two maps featured in the first Open Multiplayer Technical Test.
Here are the details:
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.
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 following weekend will see all previous above mentioned modes and maps includes plus the addition of the following:
Amped Hardpoint (6v6): A new twist on Hardpoint Domination from the original game; now defending a Hardpoint will let you amp it, giving your team double score. Team work is the key to securing victory.
Forward Base Kodai: Militia forces have taken over an IMC substation and set up a forward operating base. Pilots can find safety from Titans in the hallways and chambers of the main building, while Titans can walk over the roof to get a better view of the action.
As reported earlier, the Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Technical Tests will only be available on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC platform won’t feature any open betas unfortunately due to potential risk in spoilers from dataminers. You can read more about that here.
