Get your heart pounding in lightning-fast competitive matches in Titanfall 2’s all new 6v6 pilot only elimination mode, Live Fire. In this free content update, inspired by speedball matches in paintball, players aggressively attack forward and are tasked with making split second decisions that can make or break their team’s victory – all in 60 seconds.
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.
Live Fire maps are designed around controlled sight-lines, choke points, and flank routes. The maps are design to force confrontation and focus combat. These aren’t reactionary encounters: it’s best to have a game plan. You know where your enemy is coming from and you must utilize your abilities and mobility to outplay them. If you manage to flank your opponents, you can devastate their ranks.
The Live Fire update will be the first content drop for 2017 and certainly not the last. The Respawn team is hard at work building and testing new content that they’ll be releasing over the next few months. While the developer is not prepared to reveal full details yet, they can confirm a couple things to expect after the Live Fire update.
The next drop after Live Fire will be a doozy. They’ll have new Prime Titans and cosmetics you can purchase at the store, a large patch that will bring a host of bug fixes, balance tweaks, and new features online. Not to mention a new weapon, Pilot execution, and more. We’re also bringing back another Titanfall classic map which is…COLONY.
