If you're still unsure on whether Titanfall 2 is for you (even after reading our glittering review), then the free multiplayer trial might be enough to sway you.
Titanfall 2 was nominated for the Game of the Year award from The Game Awards and has received hefty amounts of praise for both the improved multiplayer experience and the single player campaign. To further add to its bragging rights, all maps, modes and weapons released post launch will be free to all.
This has already started with Angel City’s Most Wanted. Featuring the fully remastered fan favourite Angel City map from the original, Angel City’s Most Wanted introduces additional free content including the Wingman Elite Pistol, six new Titan kits, and a brand new Pilot execution.
Angel City’s Most Wanted also gives players the ability to purchase cosmetic items for their Pilot and Titan.
Players who pre-ordered Titanfall 2 will get access to the Angel City map as of today, whilst everyone else will be able to play it from 3 December.

The developers felt that the character was underused and weak in certain situations, so an upcoming patch will buff her abilities and even add a new ultimate.
The shield generator doesn't need line of sight, allowing you to hide it away somewhere defensible and keep the enemy on their toes.
You can take a look at the developer update below for more information.
It's worth noting that Symmetra will still have the use of her teleporter and can choose which ability would best suit the situation.
Some other balancing changes are also being made.
Photon Projector (Primary Fire)
The patch is being tested in the Public Test Region on PC.
