The next patch is called Operation Endeavor and it will be live on December 19th!

 

We’ve got some new weapons skins you’ll be able to purchase, game updates including another nerf to Grapple [just kidding we’re bringing it back to two charges], and rad new Featured Modes we’ll will be adding to the rotation. Let’s get to it:

 

CONTENT

 

Elite Weapon Warpaints

We once again have six weapons, the Double Take, Cold War, DMR, R-201, R-97, and the G2 all getting their Elite Warpaint treatment. Like before, Pick these up as a bundle for 19.99 USD or individually for 4.99 USD.

 

Masterwork D-2 Double Take

Heat Sink EM-4 Cold War

Phantom Longbow-DMR

Crimson Fury R-201 Carbine

Sky R-97

Purple Fade G2A5

Holiday Banners

A normal and a Prism version of the banners have been added.

Sleigher

Before Grapple

Upcoming Featured Modes

  • Turbo LTS - Last Titan Standing gametype with double core generation and dash regen rates. Everyone also has Turbo Engine kit.
  • Spicy Attrition - Attrition where everyone's Ordnance ability is replaced with Ticks.
  • The Otherside - All Phase Attrition.
  • Rocket Arena - Live Fire with modified EPGs and autopistols.
  • Turbo Titan Brawl - Titan Brawl with double core generation and dash regen rates. Everyone also has Turbo Engine kit.

Patch Notes

 

Good news everybody

  • Grapple has been reverted back to two charges
    • After changing grapple to one charge, we did see a small shift in tacticals players chose. However, it still is by far the most commonly picked tactical and trying to change that status quo would require adjustments that would diminish a mechanic that we and many players love. Because the earlier change was not driven by balance concerns, we're happy to revert Grapple back to its previous state of two charges. Swing away!
  • G2 now drifts upwards as you shoot (console only)
  • Minor optimizations for X1X and PS4 Pro

Community Corner

This art by KP_N7 from our forums shows their Northstar sad but ready for what’s over the horizon.

This MRVN from TheMostSafestPublic (Deviantart) is ready to help.

NERPachino from Deviantart reminds us that sharing is caring, especially when it comes to batteries.

Moving forward we would love to hear what you think about future FNN’s. As you know we’ve got some projects in the works we aren’t going to be talking about for a while so we want to hear your ideas for other topics and content you’d like to see from us next year.

 

It’s hard to believe it’s the end of the year already! Shortly we will all be taking some time off to enjoy the Holiday with our families and friends and we hope you enjoy yours! It’s been an amazing year for Titanfall, Respawn, and our community and we’re thankful for all your passion and support.

We’ll see you on the 19th when Operation Endeavor goes live! Have a great week.

Titanfall 2 PC Patch Notes 11.01.2016

Hero

Adaptive resolution scaling (requires TSAA enabled) - This feature allows the game to downscale the rendered image to help maintain a consistent framerate. This will be especially helpful for our users running lower spec video cards, allowing them to maintain 60fps more often, as well as those of you running 4K monitors with more midrange GPUs. Adaptive Resolution uses TSAA's resolve step to output to screen, thus the feature is only enabled when TSAA is enabled.
Word of warning: if you run a resolution or target framerate much higher than your machine will be capable of achieving you will be hindering image quality significantly as the Adaptive Resolution feature will be constantly downscaling your output to maintain performance. All systems will be different, so you should try different settings to see what works best for you and your configuration.
Other fixes in this patch. Thanks to all that have reported bugs and helped us identify these issues!

- Stability and GPU performance improvements
- Titan weakspot highlighting respects colorblind settings
- Reduced stuttering and playback issues with voice chat

- Fixed Kraber shots going through Bubble Shield
- Fixed certain combinations of weapon mods and menu selection resulting in no weapon model showing in customization menus
- Fixed spawning halfway underground after playing third person animations in Kill Replay

- Fixed Titan executions not triggering reliably
- Fixed mantling up stairs
- Fixed incorrect aspect ratio when switching from fullscreen 1920x1080 to windowed 1600x900

PLATFORM SPECIFIC FIXES:

PS4:

  • Fix not being allowed to start multiplayer after resuming the game from suspend when the player's profile is not linked to an Origin account.
  • Fixed being able to accept invites to a game that the player is already participating in.
  • General stability improvements.
  • Correctly grab the system voice permissions from Xbox and honor it in game.

PC:

  • Added Adaptive Supersampling. When enabled and running faster than the FPS target, the game will dynamically increase rendering resolution up to 2x the target resolution to improve AA quality. If the maximum supersampled resolution exceeds 16K in either dimension (e.g. when running at Eyefinity/Surround resolutions), this option will be unavailable.
  • Added Very High to the Model Quality tiers.
  • General stability improvements.
  • Added Model Draw Distance to allow pushing draw distances further out.
  • Added description for Triple Buffered in the VSync description text.
  • In an effort to reduce hitches from texture streaming, the "Texture Quality" setting has been renamed to "Texture Streaming Budget" to more accurately reflect the setting's function, and the tiers have been renamed to indicate the VRAM amount needed. A warning has also been added when the game detects that the chosen tier uses more memory than currently detected. The goal is to only use about ~75-80% of the VRAM when the game is running to avoid GPU memory management hitches.
  • Spun D3D texture creates off onto a dedicated thread to avoid driver stalls and added throttling to the number of textures that are made live by the streaming system every frame. The throttling mechanism is simplistic and can be improved, but we want to get this out earlier to see if we're on the right track in reducing texture streaming stutter before investing more engineering effort. If you were previously experiencing stutter, please provide feedback on whether stuttering has noticeably improved after this patch.
  • Adaptive Resolution FPS Target is no longer capped by max monitor refresh rate and instead caps to maximum supported FPS (144).
  • Improve VRAM detection accuracy.
  • Improved SLI/Crossfire compatibility. Players are recommended to not use TSAA when running in multi-GPU mode because TSAA can negatively affect performance scaling.
  • Improved frame rate stutter detection tools.
  • Enabling adaptive resolution while VSync is set to Double Buffered should now reliably force VSync to Triple Buffered.
  • The game now prevents the screensaver/lock screen from coming up due to idling while the game is running.
  • Added additional info to rare startup error "Failed to CreateGameWindow. Resolution Unsupported?" and a speculative fix for it.
  • Fixed adaptive res FPS target incorrectly resetting to 60.
  • Fixed texture streaming being disabled on GPUs with < 2GB of detected VRAM.
  • Fixed the game crashing on startup if a user has AMD GPU drivers installed, but is no longer using an AMD GPU as the primary adapter.
  • Fixed memory leak experienced on Crossfire setups.
  • Fixed various UI scaling issues when running in Eyefinity/Surround ultrawide resolution.
  • Added text clarifying "Invite friends" functionality doesn't work while the Origin overlay is disabled.

Smart Pistol

Headhunter Alternator

 

Masterwork R-6P Softball

 

Blue Fade R-101 Carbine

 

Jump Starter Pack

This content was originally meant for those who bought the Ultimate Edition of Titanfall 2. Since then, we heard lots of feedback that the Jump Starter Pack has been helpful for lots of players so we’ve decided to make it available to everyone to purchase if they want. You’ll be able to access it from the in game store for $6.99 USD and it includes:

  • 500 Credits
  • 10 double XP tokens
  • All Titans unlocked (not Primes)
  • All Pilot Tacticals unlocked
  • Underground R-201 Carbine

Patch Notes

 

This month patch notes is small, very small. But, it’s a few things that you guys asked for and we agreed with. This month’s patch notes are as follows.

  • All advocate gifts are now purchasable with credits
  • Upcoming featured modes: Nitro mixtape, Nitro FFA
  • Fixed an issue where cloaked enemies on look like they have a mosaic overlay instead of being cloaked when a player is embarked in a titan.


What about some of the changes from the previous patch? What was/is the mindset behind them?

 

In the last patch, we had a multitude of changes from Arc Grenades, RSPN 101/201 Weapons, pilot abilities and more. The idea behind these changes was to keep the game fresh by shaking up the meta.

 

The most notable change was to Grapple. This has been the most used tactical ability to the point that we felt it was causing players to not give the other tacticals much of a chance. With that, we decided to remove a charge on the grapple to bring it more inline with the other tacticals. We knew this change would be risky, but we wanted to evaluate if the impact of this change could encourage a more diverse meta versus playing it safe. We are continuing to monitor this change and will provide an update on it next month.

 

Now onto the change for the Mozambique and Wingman Elite pistols from secondaries to primaries. We saw a decent pool of players who enjoyed using these as primary weapons and hardly touched the actual primaries. Thus why these specific weapons were chosen. But because they would become primary, they would be under powered compared to the rest, thus why the buff them and to legitimize the users who do enjoy this style of play.

 

We’ll be continuing to watch player data and feedback so let us know what you think.

 

New Community Banners!

 

If you’ve been following past FNN’s or our social channels you should know that we have some incredible artists in our community. Last month, our subreddit hosted a fan-art contest asking community to create callsign banners and the Top 8 chosen by Respawn would be put into Titanfall 2. The results were outstanding. We hard a hard time choosing and decided to add two extra to the bunch. Below are the 10 winning pieces that will be available as banners in the Harvest Time patch. Thank you to all that participated!

 

Kindagoodpainter - Laser Core Online

 

Kindagoodpainter - Big Papa

 

Tinman888 - To The Sky

 

MrHCow - Spicy  Boy

 

Skinninator - All to Ashes

 

Bman4750 - MRVN Emotes

 

Xbox_JRG1980 - Trust Me

 

Bckscr - 8-bit

 

Scruffy-Stevie - Beyond the Light

 

Cosmik_owl - V

 

Community Corner

 

Every month, we showcase tons of fanart. But this time around we are celebrating the fans who create in other ways to celebrate Titanfall

Take this Northstar Action Figure by FallenCan via Reddit for example. It looks like it’s ready to fly.

This lovable Scorch created by jillianjiggs92 via reddit is your BT-B (Bed Time Buddy). 

And then Kyle Spittle has seen some battles with their IMC pilot helmet.

And then they don’t make titans like they use to.
