The first map pack for "Titanfall" is scheduled to launch in May across all platforms. The downloadable content for the “Expedition” pack will sell for under $10 and give players three new maps.
The game's developer, Respawn, made the announcement over the weekend at PAX East in Boston. The three maps are called “Runoff,” “Swamplands” and “Wargames.”
In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat. On an uncharted world, the IMC begin construction of a new fleet operations base, using newly acquired water collection and filtration plants to support the new base. When drainage operations reveal ancient ruins and artifacts of an unknown origin in a nearby swamp, Spyglass activates an archaeological team to investigate the site. To maintain battle readiness at the new base, IMC Pilots use simulation pods to train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.
“Expedition” will be one of three upcoming content packs that will retail for $9.99. A season pass is also available for $24.99. The pass grants users access to all three packs on the Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360.
Respawn founder Vince Zampella said last month that the game modes will be released at no cost to players. Zampella also said that the game’s upcoming modes will be separate from the premium DLC packs.
Respawn launched an update on Thursday that focused on improving the game’s private match mode. This means players now have a more efficient way to organize matches with friends in tournament or casual play. The beta is now available across all platforms and the developer hopes users will provide helpful feedback.
The update also fixed a number of the bugs, including faulty Pilot health pools and large amounts of bandwidth used when connecting to servers.
Respawn also promised improvements with future updates, including more custom loadout slots and last game summaries.
