What’s Up PlayStation Nation,
Yesterday during Gamescom, Respawn went to the PlayStation Blog to finally announced when they will be having their technical test for Titanfall 2. The technical test will take place, starting on August 19th through the 21st and August 26 through the 28th. Both test will feature two new Titans (Ion and Scorch), some range pilot abilities(including the Grapple, Holo Pilot, and Pulse Blade), and plenty of load-outs to try out.
Here are more details on what to expect from the technical test
Bounty Hunt (5v5): A brand new mode in Titanfall 2 that pits you and your teammates against an opposing team of Pilots as well as the Remnant Fleet. Earn bonuses by killing grunts and enemies, but make sure to deposit all your points at the bank between waves without getting killed! Once a bounty Titan shows up you’ll want to focus all fire and take it down as a team for a massive payout!
Pilots vs. Pilots (8v8): Think you have what it takes to be the best Pilot on the Frontier? Put your combat and mobility skills to the ultimate test in this classic eight-on-eight Pilots-only mode.
Boomtown: A secret underground IMC facility where the latest in R&D is put to the test. In this facility Pilots can use the many peaked roofs as cover against combatants below, as well as numerous interiors to maneuver through for a variety of firing positions without being spotted. With tight lanes through the middle, Titans can easily be ambushed unless they head off the main pathways and into the surrounding fields.
Homestead: The IMC have claimed Imminent Domain on a small commune’s plot of land when valuable natural resources are found. A series of raised, rocky plateaus with a river running down the middle, Pilots are mostly safe from Titans among the rocks and trees but they also can duck into the caves and buildings when needed. Titans control the large rolling fields, so be extra cautious when traveling between the plateaus.
Both modes will be playable on both maps.
Then for the second weekend, we’ll be adding an additional map and mode to the tech test:
Amped Hardpoint (6v6): A new twist on Hardpoint Domination from the original game; now defending a hardpoint will let you amp it, giving your team double score. Team work is the key to securing victory!
Forward Base Kodai: Militia forces have taken over an IMC substation and set up a forward operating base. This is a medium-to-small map with the main building dominating the playable space. Pilots can find safety from Titans in the hallways and chambers of the main building, while Titans can walk over the roof to get a better view of the action. As a Pilot, keep an eye out for two escape chutes that run from the interior of the main building to the roof!
