By making Titanfall an Xbox and PC exclusive, Microsoft was betting big that the game would become the next hit multiplayer combat shooter. It is still too early to say whether that bet has paid off, but EA and developer Respawn will still be supporting Titanfall no matter what.
This weekend at the PAX East conference EA officially announced the first DLC content for Titanfall. The add-on, titled "Expedition," will be bringing three new multiplayer maps for fans of the game to explore and compete in.
The new "Expedition" maps are named "Runoff," "Swamplands," and "Wargames." All of the new content is related in some way to an expansion of Titanfall's story and takes place far into the "Frontier" space of the game's world. From the Titanfall website:
In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat. On an uncharted world, the IMC begin construction of a new fleet operations base, using newly acquired water collection and filtration plants to support the new base. When drainage operations reveal ancient ruins and artifacts of an unknown origin in a nearby swamp, Spyglass activates an archaeological team to investigate the site. To maintain battle readiness at the new base, IMC Pilots use simulation pods to train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.
Titanfall's "Expedition" DLC will be coming to Xbox consoles and PC sometime during May. The content will cost $10 and is part of the Titanfall Season Pass.
"Expedition" is the first of three planned DLC map packs for Titanfall. Information about the next two DLC add-ons will be released as their launch approaches.
