Free Titanfall 2 DLC Arriving Next Week

Free Titanfall 2 DLC Arriving Next Week

Angel City's Most Wanted will deliver a new map and additional Titan customization options - as well as an in-game store.

Respawn have just announced that the first DLC for Titanfall 2 will drop on November 30th – and the good news is that it's going to be free.

Angel City's Most Wanted adds the popular Angel City map from the original Titanfall, and also delivers several Titan kits that offer new customization options for your favorite mechs:

  • Ion: Refraction Lens - Splitter Rifle splits 5 ways
  • Scorch: Scorched Earth - Flame Core ignites the ground, leaving thermite in its wake
  • Northstar: Threat Optics - Enemies are highlighted while zooming in
  • Tone: Burst Loader - Aiming allows the 40mm to store up to 3 shots to burst fire
  • Legion: Hidden Compartment - Power Shot has two charges
  • Ronin: Phase Reflex - When doomed, Ronin phases out of danger

Also available will be a new Wingman Elite Pistol, a new pilot execution that enables players to phase into an opponent to eliminate them, and an in-game store that will sell new skins, camo, and Prime Titans. The latter could be construed as a potentially controversial addition, but Respawn go to some lengths to explain that nothing you can buy has an affect on gameplay: "We will have no in-game currency exchange. No locked loot boxes, crafting shards or pay-to-win weaponry. No RNG. If you see something you like, you buy it and that’s it. These in no way effect stats and are purely cosmetic. We will have two Prime Titans available at launch. They have new chassis and assassinations but function the exact same way as their original counterparts."

According to the announcement, Angel City's Most Wanted is just the beginning of Respawn's support for Titanfall 2, and there will be more DLC updates next year that will add new maps, modes, and weapons – and they'll continue to be free.

Additionally, Respawn will be introducing Titanfall 2 events in 2017 that will include game mode twists, and double xp weekends. Game mode twists sound particularly interesting – they'll be semi-regular occurrences in which Respawn "will change up rule sets on certain games, giving them a “twist” to how you might normally play them. Changes like these force players (and ourselves) to look at the game differently and try some things you may never have tried before."

One thing to note is that while the DLC will go live on November 30th, only players who pre-ordered Titanfall 2 will gain immediate access to the Angel City map. Everyone else will be able to play it starting on December 3rd.
