The second of three planned Titanfall DLC content packs has been announced by Respawn Entertainment today. Named "Frontier’s Edge" the pack is a follow-up to the previous "Expedition" map pack and is said to be, "Pushing the battle to the furthest reaches of the universe." Just like the second pack, Frontier's Edge will also feature three brand new maps.
Frontier’s Edge sees three new maps added to the current roster of eighteen. At this stage little is known beyond the names of the maps and a brief tidbit about each one, but they're exciting all the same. Two of the maps would appear to be thematically similar on first look, with Dig Site and Export being based in a mining outpost and mining hub respectively. Export, however, is set on the side of mountain and that sounds like all kinds of Titan stomping fun to me. The third map is named Haven and apparently takes place on an exclusive beach resort. Here’s hoping it’s in considerably better shape than Fracture's crumbled wealthy neighborhoods.
The new map pack could even bring out the best of the recent changes to Titanfall brought in by Update 4. Update 4 saw the addition of two new games modes, Marked For Death and Wingman Last Titan Standing, along with new features such as Titan burn cards.
The standalone price for the Frontier’s Edge DLC is $9.99, or your regional equivalent, but is also included in the Titanfall Season Pass. Anyone who purchased the Season Pass will be able to download the DLC as soon as it becomes available without the need to pay any overhead. Currently there's no announced release date for Frontier’s Edge, but more details will no doubt be revealed in the near future. I’m hoping that in the run up to its release there will be detailed breakdowns of each map contained within the pack, as was done for the Swamplands, Runoff and War Games maps in the Expedition DLC.
