Respawn Entertainment announced today the new Titanfall Frontiers Edge DLC featuring three brand new maps.
Microsoft exclusive Titanfall is getting yet another content pack from EA and developers Respawn Entertainment. While no date has been announced as of yet, the new content will include three new maps, each priced at £7.99 ($9.99). Titanfall owners can also pick up a season’s pass for £19.99 ($24.99) that will include the previous pack, Expedition, as well as Frontier’s Edge and an as-yet-unannounced third DLC.
The Titanfall Frontier’s Edge DLC will introduce three new maps: an isolated mining outpost (Dig Site), a beach resort (Haven) and a mining base on the side of a mountain (Export).
The previous content pack, Expedition, pushed the story forward as the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation built a new fleet operations base along with new water and filtration plants and discovered ancient ruins and artifacts. Three new maps were also included and showcased the different aspects of the game including a map based on the futuristic, Tron-like aesthetic of the main game’s tutorial.
Expedition’s maps, released on May 15th of this year, encouraged players to explore how the game might be played differently, such as leaving a wide open space in Swampland where players might clash head-on as well as the extreme verticality of Runoff.
Despite fans claiming that this was not what they were asking for as far as new content, Frontier’s Edge offers the same package: three new maps with no mention of new guns or titans. There is not much information on the DLC as of now except that the content is being released as the second piece of a three-part “season”. There is no trailer yet.
Titanfall is a first-person-shooter that starts you off in the middle of a conflict between the Militia and the Interstellar Mining Corporation. It features wall-running, double-jumping, and a lot of vertical gameplay. In contrast, titans are pilot-controlled war machines with less vertical ability but much more firepower. Players bounce between pilot and titan in order to come out on top.
