Titanfall 2’s tech test is back for the 2nd weekend stress pumping sessions with pilots and Titans. This time, it has been officially announced that the servers will be up by 9AM PST in August 26 (12AM Philippine Time in August 27). And there’s more to this stress test, there are added patch notes from a blog post in the Titanfall official website that improves the gameplay mechanics:
“TIME TO KILL
Amped Weapons Boost now unlocks at 80% of the earn meter instead of 50%.
Charge Rifles now have damage falloff at cross map distances.
Slightly increased cloak visibility for other Pilots.
We think the abundance of Amped Weapons is a large contributor to lower time to kill. We’re still adjusting individual weapon balance for ship.
Increased max wall-running speed.
Increased base wall-running speed and air speed.
Increased acceleration while jumping off walls.
Titans dashes recharge 2 seconds faster.
Training is unaffected by these changes, ensuring Gauntlet records will remain valid.
Pilots now earn a small amount of Titan meter every 5 seconds.
This value may be undertuned until we can take a pass at how much meter you earn from objectives.
Score Limit lowered to 5000 from 6000 to increase the amount of games won by score instead of time.
Banking phases now last 45 seconds instead of a minute.
Fixed some issues with the outer deadzone on PlayStation controllers.”
Still, the tech test is on PS4 and Xbox One. It appears that there’s no PC tech test coming.
So prepare that patch update and get inside the servers by 9AM PST in August 26! Incoming!
