Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment's recently launched mech-infused first-person shooter, will soon be receiving a companion app, player colour options and an option for private servers, according to a recent series of Twitter comments from producer Drew McCoy.
McCoy took to Twitter to answer a number of player questions yesterday, revealing that the dev team are currently working on getting a companion app up and running. "Yup! Unfortunately it didn't make it in time for release, but [it's] coming soon. No details yet :)" Respawn are also investigating allowing players the chance to assign different colours to their teammates in order to better differentiate from the enemy, a feature that's "on the list to look in to for a future patch."
Titanfall's developers are also working on supporting private lobbies for eSports participatns, with McCoy revealing in response to a fan question on whether Respawn will support private lobbies for eSport that the "Devs at the office working on it as we speak!" We are unsure as to what exact features will come out of that, and whether users outside of the eSports world will be able to gain access to these private lobbies.
To those who might be stuck wondering when a Mac version of Titanfall will drop onto their Apple product, it seems that may come sooner rather than later. Respawn Entertainment boss Vince Zampella has stated that the studio is currently in talks with Mac publisher Aspyr. No further information was provided, but hopefully we'll hear more soon.
Titanfall is available now on PC and Xbox One, with an Xbox 360 version coming sometime next week. Find our thoughts on the new mech-filled FPS in our recent review.
