Titanfall's next season pass map pack -- Frontier's Edge -- has started revealing its secrets. The first of the three new maps is Dig Site, a deep quarry that gives Titans plenty of cover to negotiate while pilots leap overhead or brutally face off atop massive mining equipment.
We've got a first look at the new stage below.
Set in an enormous active quarry, Dig Site is protected on all side by sheer rock walls that delineate the level bounds, yet should also grant canny pilots a great vantage point. "The site becomes a bloody ground war characterized by titan skirmishes over subtle elevation changes in the terrain, and a mix of short and medium-range engagements for pilots," explains Respawn Entertainment.
Dig Site's mining rigs and support structures create narrow claustrophobic lanes for Titans to brawl over as pilots secure overwatch on the gantries above. There ought to be plenty of opportunities for flanking manoeuvres both in Hardpoint and Last Titan Standing by the looks of things.
Respawn still hasn't announced a release date, but will share more details on the two remaining Frontier's Edge maps next week. Here's hoping that we won't have to wait too long, especially now that the matchmaking experience has noticeably improved -- not to mention the metagame. Still working on my Gen 5 --> 6 Gooser challenge mind...
