As announced in a press release published on Thursday, July 31, Titanfall’s “Frontier’s Edge” DLC is now available on PC and Microsoft’s Xbox One, with the Xbox 360 version arriving soon.
Frontier’s Edge is the second of three content packs for the game, the first being Titanfall’s “Expedition” DLC. Said to take the fight to the furthest reaches of the universe, Frontier’s Edge introduces three new maps to Titanfall’s roster, which include the isolated mining outpost called “Dig Site”, the exclusive beach resort called “Haven”, and the mountain-side mining hub called “Export”.
The full details of each of these three maps have been listed below.
Dig Site: A critical asset on the Frontier, Dig Site is surrounded by sheer rock walls that offer natural protection against air assaults. Titans patrol narrow pathways between giant industrial processing plants while pilots leap overhead to attack from above.
Export: An exporting hub built on the side of a mountain, Export recalls the boom-towns of the gold rush from centuries earlier. Focused on close-quarters combat, pilots use this to their advantage to gain speed and height, while titans lockdown natural choke points that overlook the town below.
Haven: Catering to the Frontier’s wealthy elite, this exclusive beach resort rests on the edge of a massive crater lake. Pilots will utilize the sheer walls of the hotel skyscrapers to gain high ground while titans attack from inside art galleries and luxury restaurants.
Frontier’s Edge will set you back £7.99, or your regional equivalent. Players who are looking for value for their money may be interested in looking into the game’s Season Pass, which offers all three content packs (when available) for a one-time purchase of £19.99. The Season Pass itself can be bought for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC versions of Titanfall.
We’ve established that Titanfall’s “Update 5” will release alongside Frontier’s Edge. Furthermore, the update itself is said to introduce “Black Market” in-game currency, which will allow for players to be able to accumulate gold generated from in-game activities without paying real-life money. Specifically, in-game currency can be earned by completing in-game challenges or by selling unwanted Burn Cards.
Players will also be able to use the in-game currency to buy preferred Burn Cards and even the additional Titan insignias that were introduced in Titanfall’s Update 4. What’s more, Update 5 will also bring about Daily Challenges to the game.
Titanfall’s developer, Respawn Entertainment, has also said that it is open to the idea of introducing “a more traditional singleplayer,” according to the studio’s chief operating officer Dust Welch in a recent interview.
