Electronic Arts will release the next Titanfall 2 DCL for free on Feb. 23, 2017, which will add the Live Fire Mode. According to the Titanfall website, the next update would contain two mode-specific Live Fire maps, featured playlists, new execution, additional Coliseum map, mixtape-style matchmaking, balance patches, and more.
Aside from the upcoming additional contents and changes, developers Respawn Entertainment will hold a double XP weekend event. The double XP event will start on Feb. 23, 2017, until Feb. 27, 2017, and would only be for the Live Fire Mode. Electronic Arts first introduced the Live Fire Mode after the release of the Titanfall 2: Angel City’s Most Wanted DLC.
The Live Fire Mode features a lightning fast six versus six Pilot only mode that brings a competitive and close quarter combat. Players would have to compete in a round-based best out of five with no respawns against each other. Each round consists only of one minute, players can win the round by eliminating all the members of the other team and securing the neutral flag by the end of the round.
Since the mode only gives players one minute to eliminate the other team, it has a fast-paced gameplay. Players have to improve their teamwork, mobility, and decision-making skills in the Live Fire Mode in order to win. Respawn Entertainment has developed two specially designed maps just for the Live Fire Mode.
The two maps include Stacks and Meadow where both are only playable in the Live Fire Mode. Both Stacks and Meadow feature a tight and enclosed space where players can easily see each other in less than a minute. The environment of both Stacks and Meadow is perfect for the fast-paced nature of the Live Fire Mode.
Titanfall 2 DLC: New Coliseum Map, Pilot Execution & More
Aside from the Live Fire Mode and the two maps, Electronic Arts will also introduce a brand-new Coliseum map known as Columns. A new Pilot execution and multiple new Commander intros will also arrive for each Faction. The playlist interface mentioned by the developers would allow players to create their own mixtapes of game modes they want to play.
Neither publisher, Electronic Arts nor developers Respawn Entertainment, has provided any more details about the upcoming Titanfall 2 DLC. They will reveal their full plans for Titanfall 2 soon for this year with a roadmap. They plan on adding more maps, including remastered ones, weapons, modes, and more in future updates.
