Titanfall has recently climbed its way back to the top of the UK games charts, Xbox 360 console sales giving the title a second wind of release frenzy following a delayed release on that platform. Titanfall, however tight and well executed it is as a multiplayer FPS experience, has always felt a little light in content. The selection of weapons is slimline when compared with direct competitorCall Of Duty: Ghosts and the room for customisation has felt cramped to say the least.
The first DLC pack for Titanfall,Expedition, seeks to bolster the map list a little, lending a little more space for gamers to deliver the pain to their foes, and Respawn have released the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming content, detailing each of the three maps: Swampland, Runoff and Wargames.
The trailer describes in laudable detail the themes of each map and offers insight in how to engage with them as a warrior out on the frontier. Swampland promises a tree-strewn battlefield, with treeline routes available to the most deft of players, bounding from tree to tree. Runoff appears similar to some of the more facility-based industrial maps we’ve seen so far in vanilla, whilst Wargames plays the parkour card even more heavily than Swampland, taking advantage of Titanfall’s impressive movement features to bring a parkour playground where those that innovate will be those that survive.
Though no specific release date has been set as of yet, we can confirm that Expedition will release on Xbox ONE and PC sometime during May, whilst Xbox 360 players will have to wait until June.
