Titanfall is not having the best year due to many issues and controversies, but finally a silver lining appears with the release of Titanfall 2 custom servers! Released by dedicated players of the Respawn Entertainment shooter, the custom servers allow players on PC to enjoy Titanfall 2 multiplayer once again without fear of online attacks that the official servers were subjected to over the course of the year.

Titanfall 2 custom servers have been released, exclusively for PC. Thanks to BobTheBob and all other contributors for making this possible, and for doing what Respawn couldn't.

Called Northstar, the custom servers can be accessed by everyone on PC, allowing dedicated players to once again play Titanfall 2 with other people online! You can check it out via the official GitHub page, complete with an informative wiki that should help those who are unfamiliar with game modding to acess these custom servers.
On the possibility of attacks, Save Titanfall had this to say:
I’ve seen a few people asking if this “gets rid of attacks”, and the short answer is yes. If an attacker wants to crash your server, they will have to track down the server’s IP address. Private games not on the master server will be impossible to track down & crash.
In case you missed it and do not know the context behind the need for custom servers, both Titanfall and Titanfall 2 have fallen victim earlier this year to frequent DDoS attacks from an entity who are quite irate with Respawn Entertainment. An exploit was also found which can be seemingly used to crash players’ games. A few weeks ago, Respawn pulled the original Titanfall from digital storefronts, with plans to remove the game across subscription services starting March of next year.
It’s also worth noting that Respawn has all but seemingly left development of the game, with the developer noting that they have ‘nothing’ planned for Titanfall 3, and with only one to two people left working on the franchise as a whole. While things may look bleak for the future of Titanfall as a whole, here’s hoping that the community finds these Titanfall 2 custom servers a welcome holiday present for those still itching to play the game online.

Would love to see this on Xbox One as my laptop can’t run games too well.
