In a move which seems to somewhat undermine the point of the game, Respawn has revealed that there's a Mech-free Pilot Skirmish mode coming in Titanfall.for
Okay, when you add in those special abilities and cool parkour moves maybe traditional infantry combat does have a place in the game. It gets rid of the AI bot companions too, which is a fine thing as far as I'm concerned.
Pilot Skirmish is 8v8, so it won't be available in Variety Pack playlists "due to the difference in player sizes with the rest of the game modes." I wonder how popular it will be? Surely jumping in a Mech is kind of the big draw here.
Elsewhere in the update you'll find Marked for Death playable as a permanent mode, new settings for colour-blind users, Black Market Daily Deals for Burn Cards, a new ultra-rare Burn Card called Roll the Dice that "gives you the ability to tap into your entire deck from inside a match", and a bunch of other improvements and optimisations to visuals and gameplay.
Update Six is on the way soon for all versions of Titanfall, though there's no official date just yet.
