Titanfall: Frontier's Edge still has no release date attached, but that's not stopping Respawn from talking about the new maps we'll be seeing. Today, the devs talk a little about Dig Site, one of three brand new maps included in the Frontier's Edge DLC.
As with every map in Titanfall, Dig Site has a bit of backstory to it. Located in the Frontier (as the whole Frontier's Edge thing would imply), this region is an incredibly valuable asset to the IMC. Unfortunately for them, the Militia were here first, and they don't intend to relinquish the mines without a fight.
Rock walls around the site prevent either side from using air assaults, so fights take place on the ground between pilots and their Titans. The rough terrain will still present a challenge, however, offering enemy units plenty of places to wait in ambush. An overturned building might give more intrepid pilots a nice vantage point, too.
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.
Check below for some new screenshots. Respawn will also be talking about the Export and Haven maps next week, so stay tuned.
