Respawn has announced that the upcoming Game Update 5 will is coming along with the Frontier’s Edge DLC will increase the frame rates on the Xbox One and PC. In addition SLI support will be added to the PC version of Titanfall.
While Update 5 will deliver a load of bug fixes and tweaks, it is clear that the bandwidth optimizations are the real stars of this update. While Respawn didn’t go into detail, it is believed that the increase in frame rate on the Xbox One comes from the 10% of GPU performance that was previously reserved for Kinect, now being freed up for developers to use. On the PC side, the support for the second GPU is something that was always believed to be coming in a future update.
As is tradition with the Titanfall updates, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall will get both Update 5 and the DLC at a later date that has yet to be determined. It is unclear if we can expect more bandwidth improvements on the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall when it finally gets Update 5. Sources whisper to us that it is possible, but so far no one has heard that it is something that is going to happen on the Xbox 360 version.
