EA has announced that Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 will hold two Open Betas this month. The first will start on August 19th and will end three days afterwards, while the second will begin August 26th and will end on the 28th. Both of these Open Betas will last the weekend of said dates, and will only be for PS4 and Xbox One.
If you are a fan of the first Titanfall and look to jump into battle dominated by giant Titan mechs, look no further. The two open betas will not only last for three days providing multiplayer action, but will also bring with them some new content.
The beta will contain two new Titans, namely Ion and Scorch. Tagging along with these Titans are some new abilities and skills such as Holo Point, the Grappling Hook and the Pulse Blade.
As for the first open beta that will take place on August 19th, it will feature two modes: Bounty Hunt and Pilot vs. Pilot. The former will pit five players against an opposing set of five other players, which revolves around killing rival players and Remnant Fleets and cashing points in between waves. The latter sees eight vs. eight in an all out “Pilot on the Frontier” scene. this mode is geared to those who like mobility and pilots only.
Stages included in the first Open Beta consist of the Boomtown and the Homestead. This will all end on August 21st.
However, five days after the 21st will be the beginning of the second open beta for Titanfall 2 on August 26th. Only featuring one extra mode and map, the second edition will hold Amped Hardpoint, which sees six vs. six against each other trying to dominate Hardpoints to gain extra score. Lastly, it also will feature the map Forward Base Kodai that depicts an after-scene of the militia forces occupying an IMC substation. This will all end on August 28th.
