Titanfall: ‘Expedition’ DLC Screenshots Show New Maps

5 months ago by  

Entertainment’s hybrid mech/shooter Titanfall took Microsoft consoles and PCs by storm over the last few months and the title’s impressive sales record proves that gamers are welcoming the change of pace from the usual Battlefield and Call of Duty first-person shooter experiences. Now that plenty of consumers have committed the first $60 to the Titanfall experience, the developers are ready to start unleashing additional paid content to keep things the community entertained…

Titanfall’s first add-on content will come in the form of the Expedition DLC pack. Details about the DLC’s War Games and Runoff maps have already been slowly leaking out and both look very different from the current map options. A new batch of screenshots released by Respawn gives fans a closer look at both, along with the third map, Swamplands. Take a look:

All three maps look to shake up the current Titanfall multiplayer landscape with a change in scenery, but the War Zone map is the most eye-catching. The simulation-inspired map, which triggers memories of the X-Men’s Danger Room, will offer plenty of terrain to take full advantage of the pilot’s super-powered wall-running and jumping abilities. The bulk of the map is designed to give pilots who have mastered the art of wall-running a distinct advantage over Titans. When the mechs stomp into the narrow passage in the center of the map, experienced pilots should be able to wipe them out.

Runoff offers standard environmental elements (buildings, billboards, and large walls) needed to take advantage of the game’s physics, but Swampland really does stand out with its design. The forest setting will offer players an opportunity to gain the higher ground in very different ways than the current levels allow. Pilots can be seen scaling enormous trees and stone structures in the screen shots. We look forward to finding out more about what Swamplands has in store for players when the DLC launches.

In addition to the three new maps, Expedition will allow players to customize their Titans with new decals. The DLC pack also introduces new player hash tags to make socializing in the game easier.

Expedition is set to launch sometime this month, but a specific date has not been confirmed. Consumers can either purchase the $25 season pass or buy the content separately for $10.

Do you think Expedition is bringing enough to the table to shell out some more money on Titanfall or should more maps and modes have come at launch? Satisfied with the current offerings in the core game? Sound off in the comments.

  1. Titanfall is so meh.

  2. Love the game so far, but for the first DLC that comes out it definitely should have a bang! If not two game modes, I’m hoping for three or at least two. A really sweet customization feature to come should really be Camos on guns and even pilots, or titans as well. New guns should definitely be in the book as well, along with NEW GENERATIONS. I think that would lore way more people in and would be a great add-on and asset, but add something special like different pilot looks for those who get up to different Gens if you know what I mean. At least 3 or 4 maps is what I’m hoping for, but if its 5 or even 6 I pry would be playing this game non-stop for awhile! Love the game, and can’t wait to see what Respawn has in store!
