Titanfall Update 6 Details Revealed

Respawn have released the details of what is to come in Update 6, no release date has been given as yet.

New Features

  • Featured Mode: Pilot Skirmish – Pilot Skirmish is an 8v8 mode with no AI and no Titans. PS will not be included in the Variety Pack playlist.
  • Marked For Death is now a permanent game mode.
  • Added options for the colorblind – Three colorblind options (protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia) have been added. They affect IFF glows, crosshair colors, and names above heads.
  • Black Market Daily Deals now include the ability to buy individual Burn Cards from a limited, ever shifting stock. These items are in short supply, so prices may vary.
  • Roll the Dice is a new ultra-rare Burn Card that gives you the ability to tap into your entire deck from inside a match.
  • Burn Card Auto Fill – Toggle the new Burn Card Auto Fill option in the Burn Card Menu and it will automatically fill empty Burn Card slots for you.
  • Joining late is no longer penalized. If you join a match that is more than half way over and your team is not winning, a loss will not be counted on your record. If the match is a win for your team, we’ll count it as one.
  • A warning message has been added noting you will receive a loss on your record by leaving a match in progress.

Improvements/Optimizations

  • Optimized effects processing and moved more effects rendering work onto additional CPU cores
  • Matchmaking – Faster searching, improved team balancing, increasing the likelihood of being in full games, and drastically lowering the chance of having lopsided (e.g. 6v3) matches.
  • The score is now shown in the center of the screen at the end of each Last Titan Standing round
  • New HUD Icons for team Titan counts and players using Burn Cards have been added.
  • Last Titan Standing now shows the number of Pilots left alive on each team.
  • New voiceover for Round Won and Round Lost events as well as noting whether the gap between the teams’ scores is increasing or decreasing.

Gameplay Changes

  • Titans no longer show up on the minimap when they dash.
  • Atlas and Stryder melee damage values have been switched to mirror their original design intent. The Titan melee damage order is now: Stryder, Atlas, Ogre from least to most. This is also consistent with the hierarchy of damage for the Big Punch mod.
  • To stem the influx of Burn Cards at higher levels, the Bonus XP-to-Credits conversion rate for max level players has been adjusted.
  • Credits for selling rare Burn Cards have been increased from 200 to 400.
