Respawn Entertainment’s first person shooter Titanfall 2 will receive an open multiplayer beta over two weekends in August, publisher Electronic Arts announced at Gamescom.
The beta is a technical test and will give players the chance to experience the Titanfall 2 gameplay, while in hand giving Respawn Entertainment chance to test the servers, ready for the games release on October 28th 2016. The beta will be available on both Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, and will take place in the remaining two weekends of August.
The first weekend will start Friday 19th August and finish on Sunday 21st August. On this weekend the players will be able to try out two new game modes across two maps.
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 second weekend will start Friday 26th August and finish on Sunday 28th August. Both the modes and maps detailed above will be available on the second weekend, but are joined by a new mode and map.
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.
In addition to the modes and maps players will also have access to two new Titans; Ion and Scorch. This is also a number of Pilot tactical abilities like Grapple, Holo Point, and pulse blade, along with a variety of weapons to try.
