Users mining Titanfall’s beta data on PC have uncovered 13 additional maps beyond the two featured in the beta, as well a listing of game mode acronyms and other information.

According to users on NeoGAF and Reddit, Titanfall will feature 15 maps total, several of which are set within Angel City, including an airbase, a Hammond Robotics corporate building, and a smuggler’s den within Angel City, as well several of which are in more open environments in the same vein as Fracture. Artwork for each map can be found on the NeoGAF post.

Game mode acronyms include, AT (assumed to be Attrition), TDM (assumed to be Team Deathmatch), CTF (pretty sure that’s Capture the Flag), LTS (assumed to be Last Titan Standing), HP (presumably Hardpoint Capture), VM (Variety Mode, betting), and Campaign Multiplayer.

A list of Pilot and Titan weapons, perks, tactical abilities, and ordnance can also be found on the NeoGAF post.

The Xbox team also released a new video (embedded below) that explains the game’s Burn Cards system, a Magic the Gathering–inspired set of one-off bonuses players earn by completing varying tasks during matches.

Titanfall launches on Windows PC and Xbox One March 11. The Xbox 360 version being handled by Bluepoint Games will arrive two weeks later on March 25. The game is currently in open beta for all to access on PC and Xbox One, which closes February 19 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.
