Titanfall Receives Server-Side Updates

By Joshua Rust, 2 years ago
Titanfall has been nothing but a success for Microsoft, the Xbox One, and all of the gamers who are currently enjoying the mech madness. As with most games, they're not completely perfect and tweaks to the game must be made to balance or fix issues. As of yesterday, the balance issues and bug fixes listed below should be in effect for Xbox One users. All of the fixes are done server-side so it shouldn't interrupt your playing experience at all.

Here is the complete list for the updates:

Hello everyone! I joined the Newshound group of TrueAchievements back in June 2013. Gaming has always been a passion of mine, up until recently I was a huge score-whore but have recently slacked off a bit. Not to brag or anything, but I do hold the top position in TA Score among the Newshounds (much to Michelle's displeasure...lol). I'm always up for boosting some of the older multiplayer games, so if you need help I'll try to find time in my schedule to help out! I'm also a huge Marvel Comics fan and Moon Knight is my favorite character, period. Excelsior!
