Imagine Arkham Asylum without Batman. Or Baldur’s Gate without beards. Terrible isn’t it? Now you’ve just got over that, Respawn has announced plans to release a new update for Titanfall, adding a game mode that ditches Titans and the AI pilots completely. Dubbed Pilot Skirmish, the new game mode ups the player count to 8v8 and has pilots shooting it out in basic team deathmatch, without the 40-foot Titans anywhere in sight.
Due to the increased player count Pilot Skirmish won’t be a part of Titanfall’s Variety Pack playlist. Arriving as Titanfall’s sixth major update, the new mode brings Titanfall even closer in line with Activision’s Call of Duty series, stripping it down to its bare essentials as soldiers wall-run and double-jump like loons through the war torn environs.
