    Here’s a look at what we will be releasing over the next few months for Titanfall 2.

    Between April and June, we are confirming that we’ll be releasing:

    • 2 more general multiplayer maps
    • 2 more Live Fire Maps
    • A new Titan
    • Two more purchasable Prime Titans: Ronin and Tone.
    We’ll let you folks speculate as to what else we could be working on…

    That’s not all we have in store; we’ll be continuing to support Titanfall 2 for months to come with awesome content, free trials, and more.

    I don't think anyone's thread woke anyone up. I think they've been working on what they've been working on on their time schedule.

    I hear rumors that the new titan will be exclusive to frontier defense.

    Thanks Derrame! I really appreciate your support. I'm just glad if anything wakes them up, because they have definitely been in a slumber. This definitely does look like a great start! I am very pleased with this. The 2 things I actually like the most are probably the little things (raising the Gen cap to 100, and letting you know the expected wait time during matchmaking). 2 maps is also excellent and a new Marked for Death mode is also excellent..

    I agree that would be a nice next step and also Titan vs. Titan mode.

    This would actually be great news Battle, because it would mean we would also be fulfilling Derrame's wish.

    awesome, so, it's confirmed that we'll have frontier defense in the coming months?
    where did you read that?

    i've seen some videos, that marked for death mode is going to be frantic and exciting!

    Yeah, Marked For Death was added to TF1 and it was pretty exciting. It was very intimidating when it said you were the next target and you knew all 6 members of the other team were going to see your big target at all times and be focussing on you alone. It is an interesting mode with lots of strategic choices. Do you try to find somewhere to hide in a corner and try to defend yourself from there? Do you just try to keep moving non-stop, changing directions and altitudes and outrun them? Or, do you just play as if it's a normal game, pretend you don't have a target on your back and just be on offense instead of defense and maybe even just go right after their marked target?

    Marked Target was also the absolute best mode to try to get goosers in TF1. Cause if the marked target was in his titan and you killed it, when he ejected, he would have a giant target on him the whole time. Unfortunately for me, I still couldn't even get a gooser, because I suck at it. :)

    what is the point of the Gen cap increase to 100?
    leveling up does not add anything new except for camos
    i mean, the weapons and titan stats are the same if youre level 1 or 100
    no new weapons, no new titans, no new skills,

    Yup, likely no reason to gen up.
    Rock that Gen 1 patch like a trophy!

    You both make excellent points! I guess I am just excited they even considered doing this, because it is what I wished would have happened in TF1 from the very beginning. It would have been much more useful in that game though than it is in TF2. In TF1, you could always see what Generation and Level someone was right from the start. They couldn't display a false patch or anything. Also, in TF1, you had to EARN your Generations by completing some fairly difficult challenges. This would have been very useful in TF1 though, because the way it is now, 3 years later, you can't tell if a Gen 10/Level 50 just got their yesterday or 3 years ago. It makes a huge difference. If something like this had been in place back then, the guy who got their yesterday might be a Gen 10/Level 50, but the other guy might be a Gen 60/Level 50. It would give you a much clearer picture of what you are dealing with.

    You are right though, in TF2's current state, it is pretty useless. However, I'm glad they've opened that door up, because now in the future, even if not until TF3, maybe we combine the two and have an unlimited cap with randomly generated, increasingly harder challenges and no option to present yourself falsely with incorrect patches.

    I'm in Titanfall for the long haul and this is a very good sign to me. That's why I am happy about it.

    You cannot add different weapon stats or abilities simply for leveling up... that leads to an unbalanced game. Generation is simply something to do if you're bored is how I look at it. I will generate as much as I possibly can. You didn't get anything for Generating in Titanfall 1 either (except like more burn card slots or create-a-class slots) which had absolutely no effect on gameplay. Now I'm all for Regeneration challenges, I prefer that to this current system. Let's be honest here though, those challenges were not hard.

    Not for you maybe. If they had not reduced the Gooser challenge from 50 down to 5, even 3 years later I would still be a Gen 5. :) I actually had a couple people spend time trying to help me. They would get on the other team and we would go off to a corner of the map where no one else was and they would eject and let me try to kill them and I still couldn't do it. :) I eventually got 5, but only 1 was on purpose. The other 4 were by accident, like maybe a guy ejected inside of a building and I accidentally shot him or my nuke eject got him or something like that. It took me 6 months to complete the gooser challenge. Also, the Plasma Railgun challenge to get 50 titan kills was brutal. Getting titan terminations was tough. Getting critical hits with the Charge Rifle was also tough, because it was like putting up a big neon arrow pointing to you that said, "HERE I AM MR. TITAN" :) There were some that were very time consuming, like getting 100 wins. I mean even if you won every single game that could still take you about 25 hours of in-game time. Most probably have closer to a 50% winning percentage, so that challenge is probably more like 50 hours of in-game time for most. At 2 hours/day, that challenge alone could take you almost a month. You are an extremely good player Ik0n. Most of us don't have your skill level, so it doesn't come as easy for us.

    Probably to keep 10.49's from stopping playing due to not being able to level. You know there will be some out there that will grind it out

    I've seen some vids on youtube, people talking about frontier defense, is it really coming to TF2? :)

    and Relic is not new, is a map from TF1, it looks good

    Tone Prime will be look amazing, im sure of it, similar to BT i think
    i wish i be able to buy it :(

    it seems a new faction incoming too! great

    they must add the navigator's animation on the right corner of the screen telling you when your titan will be ready!


    Glitch in the frontier trailer tomorrow!






    they could add ships on the skies, to give more depth and context, of a war, like in the first minutes of this video:
    ships and context in all modes!

    Yeah, that would be nice. Actually, I think it would be great if they gave you more control over what you see and don't see. I would prefer to turn everything off, because your going to go over it all in the postgame wrapup anyway. When I'm in the middle of battle, I don't need to have "LEVEL UP" or "BOOST READY" or "TITAN READY" or see graphics of who took this hardpoint or whatever. Just allow me the option to turn EVERYTHING off so I can have a completely clean screen and just feed me the necessary information in my ear. It is especially annoying in Amped Hardpoint, because when playing defense my most important tool is where it says "Contested" and the stupid "TITAN READY" or whatever covers that up. Just give us complete control of the screen and our HUD. Then, Derrame can have the animation on and be happy and I can have it and everything else turned off and be happy.

    I would also like to be able to turn off replays. I know I got killed. I don't want or need to see it again. Just respawn me immediately and if you can spare me the BOOM white shock flash thing even better.

    Talking my language Derrame! The TF1 Multiplayer environment was so well designed and so rich. They really put as much of the goodies that would normally be reserved for the single player into the multiplayer as possible.

    Yes, all the images, and banners or players who got a titan or destroyed a tia or captured or killed, etc too many images on the sides of the screen that taks too much space, we don't need to see so many images, an option to turn that off would be very helpful

    Derrame, did I tell you how awesome you are lately? Thank you for telling me how to turn at least some of this crap off. I didn't even realize you could. For anyone who wants to, if you go to SETTINGS->Video and then HUD Options, you can turn at least some screen garbage off. Makes it so much nicer. Again, Derrame, did I tell you how awesome you are? Because you are! Thanks!
