The first content drop for Titanfall 2 brought more than just a new map.
Titanfall 2 developer Respawn released the Angel City Most Wanted free add-on yesterday, alongside a big patch for all platforms. Apart from the new map and purchasable cosmetic items, the patch also brought a number of new features and bug fixes.
First up, the Angel City remake will be available in a separate, 24/7 playlist that cycles through Attrition, Bounty Hunt, and Amped Hardpoint. The map will also be added to normal rotation in other playlists.
Those with early access to Angel City can already play it now. Everyone else will get access on December 2, at 4pm PT/ 7pm ET/ 12am GMT. You can, however, be invited to play the map by people in your Network or friends list.
There’s also the in-game store, which allows you pay real money for Prime Titans – unique Titan looks and executions for Ion and Scorch.
In terms of new features, the patch added new Titan kits, and a couple of advanced options for aiming to allow for a finer control over the deadzone, and different sensitivity categories.
The update is 3.6 to 5GB, depending on your platform. See the full list of changes below:
