Respawn Entertainment aren’t done with Titanfall just yet and have just dropped some great news about it’s first major multiplayer game.
Titanfall will be receiving another update (#8) and it’s one of the biggest ones to hit the game to date, containing several new game modes, new enemies and it’ll be available to download tomorrow, 23rd October 2014.
The most notable feature of this update is a game mode called ‘Frontier Defense‘ which is a horde-like mode where a four player co-op team try to defend a certain place on the map from a range of different enemies. This mode brings with it several new Ai types such as mortar and sniper teams, as well as changing the general behavior of the enemies, hopefully making it a challenging and enjoyable experience for all. Frontier Defense will be playable on all 24 multiplayer maps.
If that doesn’t make you crave Titanfall again, several other new modes will be included in this update such as Marked for Death Pro which challenges players to eliminate a single VIP on the other team while Deadly Ground forces players to battle across rooftops as the entire ground is covered in a lethal electric cloud (think: floor is lava).
Oh, and the achievement hunters of the Xbox One will be pleased to hear that 17 new achievements will also be making an appearance with this update, revolving around these new modes, increasing the overall amount available from Titanfall to 2,000 points.
The full patch notes and details for Titanfall Update 8 are available on the official site, there is tonnes there!
Rockstar has released yet another batch of free, downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto 5 titled “The Last Stand” and it’s unfortunately not as impressive as it sounds.
This new expansion pack is now available to download and contains two new weapons, two new motorbikes and one fancy new sports car, as well as expanding the map creation tool. The in-game editor now lets players create Last Team Standing game modes, create custom maps and share them with the community.
The 1.17 update has also added several new Rockstar Verified Jobs which are listed below, more details can be found on the official site.
- Alta (Rank 16, 2-8 Players)
Less violent than the average apartment building residents’ committee meeting, this cramped LTS pits two wings of a building against each other. Try to stay on the rooftops, and look for long-ranged attacks across the courtyard and close-quarters clashes on the footbridge.
Del Perro Freeway (Rank 23, 2-16 Players)
Draw a line in the sand with this Del Perro Beach LTS. Teams start at either end of the beachfront houses. They can go at each other directly or take the pedestrian bridges across the WH to pick up weapons. Dr. Friedlander isn’t running his conflict resolution seminar this week.
Grand Banks (Rank 9, 3-12 Players)
As good a place as any to make a stand, three groups take the third way at the Grand Banks Steel foundry. Fight on the rooftops, in the tunnels, and along the gangways to be the only team that doesn’t get to fulfil their death wish.
Hawick (Rank 16, 2-16 Players)
Two teams snipe each other from rooftops or get down and dirty in the alleys with shotguns until there’s only one of them left. Hawick hasn’t seen this many unfortunate accidents since speedballs were cool in the 80s.
Mount Josiah (Rank 29, 2-16 players)
When the dust settles, and the rivers stop running with blood, who’ll be left on top of the second highest mountain in Southern San Andreas? Two teams fight to be king of the hill on the open, almost coverless slopes of Mount Josiah.
N.O.O.S.E. (Rank 9, 2-8 Players)
Something’s happening behind the mysterious chain link fences, and non-descript ‘government facility’ signs off the Palomino Freeway. Two teams have taken time off from spying on personal communications to fight for supremacy on the rooftops, walkways, and parking lots of the N.O.O.S.E. facility. Look up for the best weapons.
Paleto Bay – Tanks (Rank 29, 2-16 Players)
Some places get all the luck. Two teams face off with tanks and explosives and don’t mind if they turn the whole town to rubble. Who’ll be left standing in what’s left of Paleto Bay?
Skyscraper (Rank 36, 2-16 Players)
There’s no escape from Los Santos. One team tries to hold out at the top of a skyscraper construction site armed only with sniper rifles and heavy weapons. The other team launches a four pronged assault in Buzzard attack helicopters.
Storm Drain (Rank 23, 2-16 Players)
Gang warfare’s gotten really out of hand as two teams come at each other with tanks, motorbikes, and explosives in the concrete channel of the LS River. Try to stay in the storm drain, and don’t worry about flash flooding, there’s a drought in San Andreas after all.
Tataviam Truckstop (Rank 16, 2-8 Players)
Lonely truckers and enterprising hitchhikers are in for a scare as this pit stop on the Palomino sees its share of the action. Small scale LTS that’ll make good use of the Heavy Shotgun.
We’ll get Heists one day guys… maybe.
