Four-player co-op is coming to Titanfall 2, free

Titanfall 2 frontier defense

Like a futuristic mech pilot legging it across a horizontal surface, the pace of updates for Titanfall 2 are showing no signs of slowing down. Respawn just announced the next big one in an exciting new trailer, lifting the lid on a new co-op mode, as well as some free maps. 

Fancy a different multiplayer experience? Try one of the best co-op games on PC. 

Frontier Defence is an all-new mode that sees you and up to three of your friends defend against waves of robots, soldiers, and titans. You can unlock upgrades for your own robots, unique to this mode, as you fight through the increasingly difficult five waves.

Between rounds, you use cash you’ve earned to spend on defenses, batteries, and other consumables. It looks like it’s gonna be a lot of fun and launches with support for five maps and various difficulty modes. Check it out in the video above.

On top of the mode, there’s also a new map: Rise. Here’s the official description:

“Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.”

If you play Live Fire mode, you can also bound around another new map, called Township. Elsewhere, there’s a bunch of new paid DLC so you can standout on the new battlefields. Read the full post on the Respawn blog.
