Today marks the anniversary of the launch of Titanfall. Respawn Entertainment's wildly successful sci-fi FPS launched to widespread critical acclaim following months of intense hype. To commemorate Titanfall's first birthday, EA has marked down the price of Titanfall's season pass and all associated DLC to $0.00.
Titanfall's season pass contains three map packs, normally priced at $9.99 individually or $24.99 as part of the multi-buy pass discount.
The first DLC is Expedition, and features 3 maps on an uncharted world. Swampland, as the name suggests, takes place in a swamp littered with gargantuan alien trees and ancient temples. The trees can be used in parkour gameplay, skilful players can traverse huge portions of the map without touching the ground. Runoff takes place in a fairly standard urban layout, dilapidated in style and crisscrossed with Titan trenches which make for hilarious opportunities to punch weary pilots into bloody chunks. The third map is Wargames, which puts players in a damaged VR style training ground reminiscent of Tron or the VR missions of Metal Gear Solid.
Titanfall's second map pack takes on small, developing colonies with a focus on industry. Dig Site takes place on a mining colony, and features mazes of caves and hazardous pit falls. Export is a day time map carrying the motif of a space port. This map contains various environmental hazards which forces players to be more considerate with their traversal. Frontier's third map - Haven - takes place in a futuristic city which has thus far avoided the conflict between the IMC and the Militia.
IMC Rising charters the battle across older colonies and Militia settlements. Backwater takes place in a highly vertical forest colony. Zone 18 is a decrepit military base fallen into disrepair, and Sand Trap brings throws players into an arid industrial complex.
Respawn have been beefing up their operation ahead of the inevitable Titanfall 2 which is widely expected to shed its Xbox exclusivity. If you haven't played Titanfall before, I would highly recommend it if you're into competitive FPS. The game is available for the incredibly reasonable price of £24.99 / £29.99.
