The newest free DLC for Titanfall 2 will be ready to launch in a week. Called A Glitch in the Frontier, it will add two maps, the MRVN faction, increase the Gen to 100, and allow you to choose between regular or Prime Titan executions.
The first new map is named Glitch. It will consist of, “vertical drops and long, twisting paths…for chaining together long wall runs to seamlessly glide across the map”. Deck is the second map, and it will be for the Live Fire mode. It is described as having, “tight interior spaces, exposed courtyards, and watchful drones circling overhead”.
Titanfall 2 really knows how to keep its player base coming back and rewarding loyalty. Surprising no one, it is free updates with new maps. We hope this dangerous way of thinking becomes more popular across the industry, but we are not going to hold our breath.
Until then, here are the remaining details around the DLC.
