Game Updates Released For ‘Titanfall 2,’ ‘Hitman,’ & ‘Driveclub’

The recently launched Titanfall 2 received server updates over the weekend. Meanwhile, game patches were made available for Hitman and Driveclub today.

The first-person shooter Titanfall 2 officially hit the shelves last Friday, October 28. Shortly after its launch, a server-side update was released by game developer Respawn Entertainment which brought in changes like making the Attrition score limit from 300 to 500. The Titanfall 2 update also made the player counts for individual game modes visible upon matchmaking into specific modes, according to the game’s official website.

Another Titanfall 2 update was released on Saturday, October 29, which came with bug fixes for issues that players will probably never notice, as noted on a separate page on Titanfall 2’s official forum page. Moreover, other official changes to find after the game update are listed below.

  • Titans and Pilots with active Titans will now earn XP from killing other Titans.
  • Titans now receive 1 XP per round in LTS to keep parity with other modes.

To reiterate, the updates were made for the servers, which means Titanfall 2 players don’t have to do anything as they will not be prompted to download them. The Titanfall 2 server updates were released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game.

Moreover, fans of the game can expect a future update that will display player stats, a feature currently missing in Titanfall 2.” Respawn noted the following as a response to a Reddit post.

“No stats visible at launch, but they are being tracked, and a future patch will add display.”

Titanfall 2 is the epic sequel to the genre-defining and award-winning original Titanfall game that was released in 2014. Offering both single play and multiplayer experiences, Titanfall 2 features new titans and pilots, customization and progression system as well as deadlier weapons.

Meanwhile, Hitman, the episodic action-adventure stealth video game, is receiving a mandatory game update today. It is available on PC, Xbox One and PS4, weighing in around 5 GB to 8 GB, depending on the platform. It comes with some fixes and improvements, including the addition of checkmarks to target kill conditions, scoring seen showing the number of objectives completed, changes to Featured Hub and Contracts page, among others.

The Hitman update is rolled out alongside the release of the game’s Episode 6: Hokkaido. In the season finale, “Agent 47 will travel to Japan and must locate two targets,” the official game website noted.

“The Hokkaido location is set within the grounds of the hyper-exclusive GAMA private hospital and resort,” it added. “This secluded facility is a fusion of Japanese beauty and cutting-edge technology, featuring its own Zen gardens, organic sushi restaurant and traditional Japanese hot spring.

According to PlayStation Lifestyle, Io-Interactive will soon bring to the table another Hitman update which will add a new reward system for Elusive Targets. Avid gamers can also expect more suit unlocks and more ways to unlock the suits upon the release of the next update.

This November, expect the arrival of Elusive Target #13: The Ex-Dictator, Elusive Target #14 in Paris, Elusive Target #15 in Marrakesh, an Escalation Contract, and 10 featured Contracts.

As for the fans of the PS4-exclusive racing video game Driveclub, the game’s last update was pushed out today adding 15 new urban tracks first seen in Driveclub VR. Furthermore, according to Team VVV, the free update which is 5.75 GB heavy also brought in reverse variants of tracks such as Gujo in Japan, Port of Vancouver in Canada and Ashii in India.

Sony shut down Evolution Studios, the developer of Driveclub, earlier this year. And this generous update for the game seems to be a fitting farewell for Driveclub. To bid their goodbye, the team even added the following message in the changelog.

“Thanks for your support. Thanks for your commitment. Farewell and enjoy the game!”
