Respawn announced some changes coming in an update to Titanfall, in conjunction with showing off the update at E3. It promises a couple of new modes and more customization options. The update will start rolling out on PC and Xbox One later this month, followed by the 360 patch sometime later.
According to an update on the Titanfall blog, we can expect two new modes. Marked for Death is a 6v6 mode that puts a target on the back of one player from each team. That means the other player will be gunning for him, and it's up to the rest of the team to act as bodyguards. If he's successfully taken down, another pilot is marked. The other mode is Wingman LTS, a 2v2 version of Last Titan Standing.
It will also add Titan Burn Cards, which will give enhanced Titan abilities and more powerful weapons. Titans will also become more customizable, with two more Titan VO packs ("Lisa" and "Jeeves") and a set of Titan decals. One was designed by the webcomic Penny Arcade.
Finally, matchmaking will show when players are connecting to a lobby and shuffling teams, in an attempt to balance the skill levels better.
