Respawn Entertainment released the third update for Titanfall today, which includes changes to custom load-outs, Last Game Summaries, custom match settings, and some PC-specific upgrades.
Changes to Titanfall that impact all platforms include the addition of two dedicated custom loadouts per game mode. Each custom loadout slot is unlocked after playing a game mode 5 and 10 times, respectively. Last Game Summaries also got some tweaks. Players can view scoreboards from the lobby after the match, and filter which challenges are displayed and check their progress. The update also makes it easier to track how far you’ve progressed in the campaign and when regen challenges become available.
Custom Private Matches, which is still in beta, got a host of new features. New options include changing up the AI lethality, Titan rebuild time, Titan Shield Capacity, and how much ammo Pilots can carry.
Lastly, the PC release of Titanfall received some specific changes, including extreme frame-rates that supports refresh rates up to 144fps. The audio installer is now much faster, so you won’t have to step out for a sandwich whenever this phase comes up. New scoreboard controls let you use the keyboards Page Up/Down and Delete keys to select and mute players, while Enter allows you to view their profile.
All that and more amps up the game and brings numerous balance changes. The complete change notes can be found here.
