Respawn launched new photos of its upcoming DLC map pack, “Expedition.” The downloadable content will feature a map called “War Games,” which the Los Angeles-based developer described as a “parkour playground,” modeled after a virtual reality world where Pilots compete in simulated settings of Angel City, Rise and Airbase Sierra.
“When brainstorming ideas for the first ‘Titanfall’ DLC map pack, the concept of a level in the training mission simulator got a lot of people excited,” game designer Jason McCord said on the “Titanfall” blog April 23. “Designers imagined a level that was smooth, clean and abstract - a perfect place to design easy-to-read battle spaces and wallrun paths. Artists had images of differently themed areas mixed with digital artifacts and colorful lighting.”
“The concept of a simulator level allowed for themed areas to act as the hardpoints while the buildings between are in the smooth, featureless style of the training mission rooms,” McCord explained. “The IMC start in an Airbase-style structure, complete with working Marvins and a tank repair garage. Some areas throughout the map will be ‘glitching out,’ providing landmarks that remind you that you’re fighting in a virtual simulator.”
Respawn discussed the DLC earlier this month at PAX East in Boston. "Expedition" will launch this May.
The other maps are titled “Swampland” and “Runoff.” The DLC is available with the $25 “Titanfall” DLC pass, though Respawn hasn’t revealed the cost of the standalone download.
