Players will be able to take to both modes across 2 new maps with Boomtown, a secret underground IMC facility and Homestead available
Titanfall 2’s open multiplayer technical test will continue the following weekend with all the content from the previous weekend returning plus a new 6v6 player mode in Amped Hardpoint, which is a new twist on Hardpoint Domination. A new map will also be available with Forward Base Kodai.
Throughout the open multiplayer technical test, fans will have access to two all-new Titans: Ion and Scorch, as well as a range of Pilot tactical abilities including Grapple, Holo Point, and Pulse Blade. Fans will also have access to a variety of weapons including a deadly horizontal spread shotgun known as the Masttiff and the Alternator, a dual-barrel SMG.
