Fan favorite map Angel City is returning from the first Titanfall, and with it comes a whole host of balance changes, updates, and new content for Respawn’s excellent competitive shooter, Titanfall 2. New Titan Kits, Titan enhancements for each different Titan are now available, along with updates to multiplayer, which include further sensitivity updates, detailed stats, FOV sliders for console (and a new maximum of 110 for all platforms), and more.
There’s quite a laundry list of balance changes for both Titans and weapons as well, though Respawn gave out few hard numbers. They have stated previously that they don’t like providing hard numbers for balance changes, because players tend to focus on numerical values instead of how it actually feels in-game, and providing feedback based off of the feeling. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is left up to the playerbase for endless debate.
Also coming in this update is the introduction of an in-game store, which provides a whole host of cosmetic changes for Titans, pilots, weapons, plus some exclusive call signs and emblems. Respawn also stated previously that they don’t want to introduce any pay-to-play/win elements into the game, and that buying cosmetics provide no competitive advantage. If that wasn’t enough, a free multiplayer weekend starts on today for those who didn’t subscribe to any of the EA/Origin Access programs. If you’re on the fence about Titanfall 2, there’s never been a better time to get your hands on what might be the shooter of the year.
