Your Titanfall Questions AnsweredEarly last week, we went hands-on with Titanfall, and we liked what we played...a lot. And very soon it will be general gamers' turn to try out the title as part of the closed beta. But, since not everyone will get in, we thought we'd take this opportunity to share any and everything we learned about the game. Like most gamers, we had a lot of questions about Titanfall going in, and our hands-on time with the game answered almost of all of them. We found out what makes the game unique, what works, and what doesn't work. It should also be mentioned that there is plenty of time for some elements to change or improve before the game's launch, so keep that in mind. Now onto the answers.
ModesQuestion: What modes does Titanfall offer? Answer: We saw three modes in total:
- Attrition — a points-based mode where the teams work to hit a threshold by killing any opponents. The more difficult the target (A.I. opponents < Pilots < Titans) the more points towards the score.
- Hardpoint Domination — capture and hold three points on the map. Holding a point increases a team's score, and both teams are working towards a total.
- Last Titan Standing — Titans vs. Titans only. The goal is to eliminate every enemy Titan to win a round, and the first team to win 4 rounds takes the game. Even though a player's Titan is destroyed they still get to fight as a Pilot until they are killed.
