Just a couple of days ago, the developers at Respawn Entertainment provided fans with an update about some forthcoming pieces of post-launch content in the Monarch's Reign patch for Titanfall 2 by detailing the new titular Titan known as Monarch, as well as the game's next map to be added, Relic. Now, the studio has officially released a trailer for the mech unit's impending inclusion with footage that shows off how it will fare on the battlefield.
As seen below in the Monarch's Reign gameplay trailer, the new "mid-range Vanguard-class" mech uses a Chaingun and features an Upgrade Core that allows players to choose refinements for it over the course of its existence. Respawn Entertainment also uses the new Titanfall 2 footage to depict the Monarch destroying an enemy Titan and allowing its Pilot inside to jump aboard the enemy's mech to steal its battery, and it's also shown tearing an enemy Pilot out of their Titan to crush them to death while kicking their now-destroyed mech to the ground.
The aforementioned return of the map Relic is also on full display, with Respawn Entertainment describing the "classic map" from the initial game as being a remaster of the original that's "set among the old wreck of the IMC carrier IMS Odyssey" that will allow Pilots to utilize "clever wall running routes by hanging pieces of the wreckage between buildings." Not to mention, the free new execution, Now You See Me is highlighted, with players being able to kick an enemy in the back, cloaking, and then finishing them off with a fatal knife blow to the face.
Beyond the new Titan and map, the above trailer for Titanfall 2 also shows off the new Prime designs for the first-person shooter's Ronin and Tone mechs. Additionally, once Monarch's Reign goes live next week on May 30, 2017, fans will also be able to purchase new nose art, camos, and callsigns through the title's in-game store.
Taking all of this into account, Titanfall 2's Monarch's Reign update looks to be one exciting piece of free content to keep the game fresh and interesting. Thankfully, Respawn doesn't intend on stopping there, as the developer has even more DLC plans for 2017 in mind. So, it's safe to say that those fans who are still strapping in for Titanfall 2 action have definitely received considerable returns on their purchase of the base game.
Titanfall 2 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
