Titanfall: Frontier’s Edge is now available for Xbox One and PC.
Respawn Entertainment’s latest downloadable content (DLC) was announced on July 8, 2014, and was released on July 31.
This is the second of three planned Titanfall DLCs. The first DLC, Expedition, was released on May 15th for the Xbox One and PC, and June 17th for the Xbox 360.
Thus far, there has been no word of the Xbox 360 launch, although judging by the Expedition release, it could be out in about a month.
Frontier’s Edge will feature a new in-game market, the Black Market, where players can use in-game currency to purchase Titan Insignias and Burn Card Packs.
Credits can be earned by achieving Match Victory, Match Completion, First Victory of the Day, completing Daily Challenges, selling Burn Cards, and converting experience points into credits once the player is past level 50.
Respawn designer David Shaver has assured players that the introduction of an in-game currency and market will not mean that the company is going to transition to letting players use real-world money to get “an edge in the game.”
Also new in Frontier’s Edge are three new maps. Here is the description of the maps via Titanfall.com:
“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 lock down 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 be sold for $9.99. Gamers who have purchased the Titanfall Season Pass for $24.99 will get Frontier’s Edge once it is out.
