Titanfall Expedition DLC is going to be “parkour playground”
Respawn has released the first screenshots and details of War Games, one of the three new maps coming to Titanfall this May.
Part of Titanfall’s first expansion pack, Expedition, War Games has been designed to be a “parkour playground,” and is going to be the “perfect place [for] easy-to-read battle spaces and wallrun paths.”
Designer Jason McCord went into great detail about the map and his design process over on the Titanfall website. War Games is set in Titanfall’s training simulator, which has allowed the studio to create a map “based in a virtual world where Pilots compete in simulated environments of Angel City, Rise and Airbase Sierra.”
“The concept of a simulator level allowed for themed areas to act as the hardpoints while the buildings between are in the smooth, featureless style of the training mission rooms,” explains McCord. “The IMC start in an Airbase-style structure, complete with working Marvins and a tank repair garage. Some areas throughout the map will be ‘glitching out’, providing landmarks that let you that you’re fighting in a virtual simulator.”
“War Games is one of our most wallrunning friendly maps with a fun visual hook and plenty of space for Titans to engage in large scale battles.”
Expedition is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 in May, though no date has been confirmed. It will be available to purchase individually or as part of the game’s Season Pass.
