EA Says It “Learned Valuable Things” From Titanfall 2 Tech Test, Promises To Add Tweaks For Next Open Beta Update

You may know that the highly anticipated, upcoming title Titanfall 2 recently got an open beta on the Xbox One and the PS 4. The PC was left out because the developers said that they haven’t optimized the game yet for the different possible configurations.

After the tech test, as EA calls it, got over, they said that they had learned quite a few valuable things, and will add some changes before the next tech test takes place, with pilot mobility being on the top of the list.

The mobility mechanics were changed to address the problems of Titanfall. “We identified two major issues we wanted to solve in Titanfall 2. The first is that a lack of player predictability would often cause players to be shot from the back or sides. While flanking is an important part of gameplay death often felt random instead of skillful,” multiplayer game designer Steven DeRose explained in the official statement. “The second issue is that close range firefights were overly chaotic due to erratic player movement. So, changes to pilot mobility stemmed from a desire to improve our gunplay, and not a desire to slow down movement. Additionally, we’re testing scaling back some of the dampening factors that were limiting bunny-hopping as we don’t want these restrictions to impact normal traversal,” he added.

The Titan meter shall also be tweaked, and instead of having to depend on completing the objectives to fill it, it will fill by a small amount passively every few seconds.

“The balance of Titan gameplay in the Tech Test build is heavily affected by the limited amount of content we released in the build. For example, some Titans that aren’t in the Tech Test have strong defensive abilities, certain Titan kits provide defensive upgrades, and even Pilots have a boost that can improve Titan defenses,” he wrote. The test also didn’t include the fastest Titans, although he added that “we have heard your feedback that Ion and Scorch feel too slow.”
