Sherman Oaks, California based developer Respawn Entertainment announced the launch of a new DLC pack for their first person shooter Titanfall via the game’s official website. The upgrade, known as Frontier’s Edge, adds three new maps to Titanfall’s multiplayer mode. Frontier’s Edge is the second of three currently planned DLC packages to be released for the game since its launch in early 2014.
Frontier’s Edge, much like its predecessor, Expedition, allows players to utilize a set of three new maps in multiplayer matches. The first to be introduced by Frontier’s Edge is Dig Site, an isolated, abandoned mining facility featuring lots of small, cramped buildings and narrow corridors in the bottom of a massive strip mine. The second map, Export, is also uses the mining facility theme, however it takes place on a rocky cliff side, offering players lots of opportunities for vertical movement and combat. Breaking from this pattern is Haven, the third and final map, which takes the form of an interstellar resort located on a picturesque beach. In addition to a relaxing, tranquil atmosphere, Haven offers players plenty of open space to fight in and a number of hiding spots for long-ranged marksmen around the perimeter.
These maps will join the fifteen included in the basic game as well as the three introduced by Expedition: Swampland, a swamp full of ancient alien ruins, Runoff, a water processing plant, and War Games, a training simulator. While it isn’t currently known what’s planned for the third and final of the announced DLC packs, most Titanfall players assume Respawn will stay true to the pattern they’ve established and introduce another three maps into the multiplayer rotation. Some fans of the game are also hoping for the addition of new weapons or new titan mechs for players to pilot, however there has been no hint of any such content being included with either Frontier’s Edge the update planned to follow it.
No release date for the Frontier’s Edge DLC pack has been set. The content will be available as a stand-alone purchase for $10 or as part of the Titanfall season pass, which includes both Expedition and Frontier’s Edge as well as the upcoming third package when it launches, at a cost of $25. Titanfall and Titanfall: Expedition are available now on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PCs.
