'Titanfall 2' kicks off its open multiplayer test this Friday

Get ready to hop into a Titan and wreak some havoc on the competition.

Titanfall 2 is hosting its Open Multiplayer Technical Test beginning this weekend on Friday, August 19th to run for two weekends.

The test will be open to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, offering up three multiplayer modes across two maps for eager Titanfall fans to try out ahead of the game's October 28th worldwide release.

Bounty Hunt (5v5) is a fast-paced team-based mode where Pilots and teammates work against an opposing team and the Remnant Fleet to kill grunts and other enemies while depositing points at the bank between waves. Pilots vs. Pilots (8v8) is a classic mode that has Pilots going at each other's throats for supremacy. Amped Hardpoint (6v6) is a twist on the classic Hardpoint Domination mode from the original Titanfall, where defending a Hardpoint allows you to amp it for double the score for your team.

The modes will take place on Boomtown, Homestead and Forward Base Kodai, and players will have access to two new Titans: Ion and Scorch. There's also a selection of new weapons to choose from while you're slaying on the battlefield. In order to find players to match up with, there'll also be a new feature called Networks that seeks to expedite the process.

Titanfall 2 officially launches on October 28th for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, but this is your chance to get in on the multiplayer mode early. If you're interested in signing up, keep an eye out when the test drops this weekend.
