Titanfall to Get New Game Modes in Future DLC

Titanfall to Get New Game Modes in Future DLC

The first map pack is intended to temporarily placate those who have devoured all the current content.

Titanfall's first DLC pack, known as Expedition, was recently announced, and it was somewhat surprising to see how light on content it was.

Offering just three new maps for players to battle over, the $10 DLC doesn't add any new game modes to the mix, making it seem like somewhat questionable value when compared to Call of Duty's add-ons; Activision's offerings may typically be $5 more, but they usually include at least five new maps, new weapons, new game mechanics and the advancement of the story in the lavishly produced Zombies or Extinction modes.

Speaking with VentureBeat, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella explained that this first content drop was primarily to placate those who had already burned through everything Titanfall had to offer in its base package.

"As soon as we can, we will add new modes," he said, referring to criticisms that the new pack offered nothing but maps. "It won’t make the initial DLC pack. The new maps will hold people off a little bit. We wanted to strike a balance of having people get through the content easily and also have enough content to play with. People burned through it pretty fast."

There is one new mechanic in the Expedition DLC: you'll be able to wall-run on trees, then leap off them in any direction. So there's that. But you'll be waiting a little longer if you want to truly play Titanfall in a new way.

The Expedition DLC is set to arrive on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One next month. It'll cost $10 and is free to those who purchased the $25 Season Pass.
