Titanfall's first DLC pack has been revealed. Expedition will be included as part of the season pass, offering three new maps set in uncharted territory. Hence the name, really. Runoff, Swamplands and Wargames should provide some temples, jungles and swamps to leap and stomp through - but we hope it's supported by new modes and content too.
Here's some story blurb:
"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."
It's possible that these maps will support new campaign missions alongside traditional gametypes , then, while new modes will be delivered free via title updates. Some new guns and a new metagame might be nice as a matter of priority.
We suspect that the three new maps will be just as superb as the original 15, but three isn't exactly the most generous of content offerings. At least it will be cheaper than Call Of Duty or Battlefield DLC, clocking in at $9.99 (presumably £7.99).
I'm still enjoying Titanfall on a very regular basis, as someone who played FPSs before arbitrary ranks and unlocks were the norm (that's all window dressing to me) - but I know that many players are understandably concerned about the game's long-term appeal. Where do you stand, and what do you want in terms of new maps, modes and features?
We want full Titan cosmetic customisation, frankly, though we may have to wait for the sequel for that.
