Titanfall update adding 12 new achievements

titanfall-bannerNobody can accuse Respawn entertainment of not working hard, post-release.  The studio has just released its fourth major update to Titanfall, and along with a host of new modes, tweaks and bug fixes, the update comes with 12 new achievements which total up to 200 gamerscore points.  Read on for all the details.

The complete release notes for Game Update Four can be found on the official Titanfall blog, but I’ll give you the highlights.  Titanfall will now have a Featured Game Mode, which will contain new gametypes which will only be available for a limited time.  The first featured game mode is Marked for Death, in which one member of each is… well, marked for death.  14 new Titan Burn Cards have been added to the game, and custom Titan insignias will let you decorate your Titan with your own unique decals.  Matchmaking has been rebalanced, and Titan VO options have been expanded.  A number of bugs across all platforms have also been addressed.  Check out the full list below.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
