Respawn has published a blog post about the upcoming new mode that is coming to Titanfall 2, and boy, it sure sounds awesome! In addition to getting a new mode, a revamped menu system, and two new maps for Live Fire Mode, we’re getting the Colony map from Titanfall, updated for the sequel!
The new content will launch in February.
Could you break down how the mode works?
Live Fire is a fast-paced round-based 6v6 pilot only elimination mode. Each round gives players only 60 seconds to eliminate the enemy team or take control of the neutral flag. The team that holds the neutral flag when the timer runs out wins the round regardless of how many players they’ve lost. Knowing how and when to pick up the flag is a core aspect of the mode’s meta.
Where did the idea for the Live Fire Mode come from?
Live Fire was inspired by speedball matches in paintball. We wanted to capture the spirit of these lightning-fast competitive matches and give it a Titanfall twist. Live Fire, like speedball, is fundamentally about forward momentum. You have to advance against the enemy, attack aggressively without hesitation, and make split second decisions that can make or break your team’s victory.
