Titanfall update six delievrs an interesting new featured game mode with no Titans.
Titanfall has a lot more going for it than its trademark robots and AI grunts – the zippy navigation and auto-pistol alone would probably be enough to make it quite the revolutionary shooter.
You can put this theory to the test in Pilot Skirmish Mode, the new featured game mode delivered in update six. An 8v8 battleground, it removes titans and AI for pure player versus player action. Give it a whirl, but note that you won’t be able to find it in the Variety Pack playlist because of the different squad size.
In other game mode news, previous featured game mode Marked For Death has been graduated to a permanent game mode, which is exciting. Look for the Marked for Death playlist and put together a custom loadout.
Elsewhere in the update, three colourblind modes have been added (kudos, Respawn!) and you can now buy individual burn cards. Keep an eye out for Roll the Dice, a rare card that lets you access your whole deck while in a match.
There are plenty of other fixes and additions to check out on the Titanfall website, although the news that joining a match late no longer results in a penalty is probably the biggest announcement not already covered.
Titanfall update six is out now on Xbox One and PC, and should roll out on Xbox 360 within the next few weeks if past patterns are anything to go by.
