Respawn Entertainment announced that it will be rolling out a patch for Titanfall today that adds private matches, a topic discussed by the developer and studio head Vince Zampella last month.
The update will also make changes to the Gen 5 “Gooser” challenge, an achievement unlocked by killing 50 ejecting pilots, reducing the required kill number to five. Last month, Respawn admitted that the challenge was a bit too difficult, stating:

Infamous: Second Son hit shelves on March 21, and by the end of the month had sold over 1 million copies. This impressive feat makes it the fastest selling game in the series, even though the current PlayStation 4 install base is lower than that of the PlayStation 3 when the other Infamous games launched. This makes Second Son the second PlayStation 4 game to hit the 1 million mark, after Killzone Shadow Fall. With this good news, Sucker Punch answered a few questions regarding next week’s patch.
During the exciting Super Smash Bros. Direct earlier this week, it was revealed that their will be two different styles for online multiplayer this time around: ‘For Fun’ and ‘For Glory.’ While Super Smash Bros. has a wide variety of great stages, weapons, and items, some feel this makes the game too unbalanced and not competitive enough. As such, many players stick to the strict rules of playing with no items,
Fox only, and only Final Destination as a stage.
Whether you’re an ultra competitive player or someone just looking to have a great time, the new iteration of Super Smash Bros. has you covered. By selecting For Fun, you’ll have access to all stages (except Final Destination) and all items. By selecting For Glory, you’ll play exclusively on Final Destination with no items. However, to keep things from getting too repetitive, there will be a Final Destination version of every stage in the game. The only question left is: How will you play?
