Seems certain that there's going to be a "hijack the titan" game mode. Just wondering how it's going to play out.
Putting together these two pieces of info pretty much confirms it:
First during the press release for the upcoming DLC this was noted:
"The action is rapid and varied – featuring parkour-style wall running, massive double jumps and the ability to hijack titans
. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights."
The hijack part was removed from the Titanfall offcial site in short order but some observant readers already caught wind of it.
Secondly , and probably more importantly, the PC files were opened and this was found:
Users on NeoGAF have found new game modes within Titanfall’s game files that have not yet been announced as of now. These were found in the PC files with the latest update that released last week.
The first two modes found were already announced, with Marked for Death already available. Last Titan Standing 2v2 will be added soon.
- Wingman Last Titan Standing - Last team with Titans standing wins
- Marked for Death - Kill the marked pilot
- Titan Tag - No description
- Capture the Titan - Capture the Titan and bring it to your base
- Bodyguard (TITAN_ESCORT) - No description
- Big Brother - Attack and defend the control panel
The last four are new modes that have yet to be revealed and could probably be in testing right now. As of now, there’s no confirmation as to if these will end up in game, or just remain as testing modes.
Each of the modes have text associated with them."
