Yes, you read that correctly, Respawn Entertainment has announced a new Pilot only game mode that goes by the name of Live Fire. Respawn describes it as “a lightning fast 6v6 Pilot only mode that brings competitive, close quarter combat to the forefront.” The rounds are one minute long, and best of five, where you win by either eliminating the entire opposing team, or if your team is holding the neutral flag when the round timer hits zero.
You can also expect two new Live Fire playlist specific maps: Stacks and Meadow, “These two maps are tight, enclosed death boxes designed specifically for the fast-paced intense nature of the mode.” says Respawn. We aren’t done yet though folks, along with all of these goodies, they’re bringing in a new pilot execution quoted with “wait until you see this one!”, a new coliseum map by the name of Columns, and multiple new commander intros for each Faction.
Respawn also announced a significant update on their playlist interface, taking in feedback on having the game modes split between two screens isn’t ideal for the user. They have stated that “Our goal is to allow players to create their own ‘mixtapes’ and choose which modes they want to be matched in.” and if that isn’t enough, all of this is free! Sounds pretty fantastic if I do say so, and it’ll be out with this next update, which doesn’t have a release date yet, but it has been noted it will be here soon. So keep your eyes peeled, and your weapons at the ready!
