'Titanfall' (ALL) Frontier's Edge DLC - Screens

by Rainier on July 17, 2014 @ 4:56 p.m. PDT

Titanfall is an online game that combines fast-paced multiplayer action with the heroic set piece moments traditionally found in campaign mode.

Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war, Titanfall drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia.

The universe of Titanfall juxtaposes small vs. giant, natural vs. industrial and man vs. machine, as players will have the freedom to switch between fighting as elite assault Pilots or agile, heavily armored, 24-foot tall Titans. The action is rapid and varied — featuring parkour-style wall running, massive double jumps and the ability to hijack titans. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.

Pushing the battle to the furthest reaches of the universe, Titanfall Frontier’s Edge introduces three exciting new maps including the isolated mining outpost of Dig Site, the exclusive beach resort of Haven and the mining hub on the side of a mountain known as Export.

The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.

Dig Site:

Mining operations are on hold while the Militia defend this crucial asset against IMC attacks. Surrounded by sheer rock walls that offer natural protection against air assault, 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.


Titans patrol the narrow pathways between the industrial processing buildings while pilots leap overhead, and an imposing rock saw the size of an overturned office building looms over the site providing cover and high ground for pilots.

Export:

The nearby mines fueled this large Militia settlement, an important exporting hub built on the side of a mountain that recalls the gold rush boom-towns from centuries earlier. Overshadowed by a massive armature that controls an offshore lock system for marine transport, Export caters to close-quarter, house-to-house combat for ground troops.


Pilots use this to their advantage by using quick wall-hops on the close structures to gain speed and height, then engage enemies from the low rooftops. Titans can lock down sections of the town by leveraging natural choke points, and often fight up a steep incline that leads to a commanding view of the town below.

Titanfall Frontier’s Edge is the second of three planned content packs with each pack available for £7.99. Gamers who are looking for the ultimate value can purchase the Titanfall Season Pass, which offers all three content packs for a one-time purchase of £19.99 as soon as they become available.
