Titanfall's second expansion, Frontier's Edge is now available for Xbox One and PC, adding three new maps. It releases with Title Update 5, which includes numerous gameplay tweaks, updates and the Black Market, through which you'll be able to purchase packs of Burn Cards, emblems and other items using in-game currency.
Here's some details on the three new Frontier's Edge maps:
- Dig Site - puts players in a wide-open space on a barren planet’s surface. Construction equipment, heavy machinery, and architectural facilities dot the landscape as players duke it out in-between. While the scenery may be bleak, players will have plenty of vantage points to attack their unsuspecting competitors.
- Export - takes place in a mining colony that’s been abandoned ahead of the incoming titan battle. Ziplines link multiple warehouses and other buildings, allowing players to move quickly from rooftop to rooftop, while the buildings themselves create natural kill zones and firing lanes below. Electric fences – hazardous for both pilots and their giant titans – also present a barrier, further funneling players into (and away from) specific areas. Choke points dot the bottom of the map, so players need to be strategic in their positioning and pushes.
- Haven - set in a futuristic resort location, complete with towering glass-and-steel hotels and massive space casinos. These gigantic structures are large enough to fit titans in their lobbies, while pilots can hop out to take the fight to the upper floors, for some Space-Vegas-worthy carnage.
Frontier's Edge also adds 12 new achievements worth 200 Gamerscore. You can check 'em out here. You can grab the Titanfall Frontier's Edge DLC now for $9.99/£7.99 or get it with the Season Pass for $24.99/£19.99. It'll be coming to Xbox 360 soon.
