Lots of Titanfall fans were disappointed this week when a rumoured sequel wasn’t announced. But if you were one of the people curling up inside your giant killer robot to sulk Monday night after EA’s press conference, at least you can console yourself with the knowledge that there’ll be two more ways to have Transformers-style battles on your Xbox later this year.
In other words: there are two new types of competition coming to EA and Respawn’s popular online shooter in its next update.
The first, “Marked for Death”, pits two teams of six against each other, with one member of each team being — you guessed it — marked for death. The rest of the team have to protect the target while trying to kill the opposing team’s in turn.
“Wingman LTS,” meanwhile, is four-player version of the existing Last Titan Standing — a timed deathmatch mode in which players try to eliminate the opposing team with no respawns or new Titans until the next round. With opposing two-person teams, Wingman LTS is the first gameplay mode in Titanfall that’s not 6v6.
EA and Respawn are showing both off at E3 this week, and they said that the new modes will arrive for Titanfall players at some point later this season.
