Titanfall 2 Will Offer Free Multiplayer This Weekend, First Access To Angel City

by Robert Workman


'Tis the season to be jolly – and to hand opponents their butts with a large, hulking Titan.

Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts are in the giving spirit this holiday season, as the teams have announced that the multiplayer portion of the hit game Titanfall 2 will be open to everyone this weekend.

From December 2nd through the 4th, you'll be able to access all the multiplayer modes and Titans that you can get your hands on. Better still, those that have EA Access on Xbox One or Origin Access on PC will be able to start sooner – tomorrow, November 30th.

Not only that, but players will also be able to access the first portion of downloadable content for the game, Angel City's Most Wanted. This includes an all-new version of the fan favorite Angel City map from the first Titanfall, along with the Wingman Elite pistol, six new Titan kits and a new pilot execution.

"Welcome back to Angel City," the official Titanfall account tweeted. "Experience the remastered version of the fan favorite map from the original Titanfall, free."

The map will be accessible to everyone on December 3rd, but those who pre-ordered the game will be able to try it out tomorrow, November 30th.

Even though there have been reports that Titanfall 2 hasn't sold as remarkably as EA was hoping (releasing it between the likes of Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare), it's still one of the year's best shooters, with a robust single campaign paired alongside the dependable multiplayer we've come to expect from the series. Hopefully, this open weekend will give players the chance to discover what it's all about, and prompt them to pick up the game while it's on sale for around $30-$40 or so.

We certainly enjoyed it, so don't hesitate when it comes to joining this big robot party.

Titanfall 2 is available now for Origin PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can check out the new Angel City trailer below!
