Titanfall's first DLC map shown off in new images

Respawn provides images and details for War Games map, included with the Expedition DLC; launching next month for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment today released the first images of War Games, one of the new maps coming to the game next month as part of the Expedition DLC, which was announced earlier this month at PAX East. War Games, described as a "parkour playground," is based in a virtual reality world where Pilots compete in simulated environments of Angel City, Rise, and Airbase Sierra.

The IMC will start in an Airbase-style structure, featuring working Marvins and a tank repair garage. The Militia, on the other hand, start off in an environment based on Angel City, but featuring new night time twist. Respawn says in a blog post that War Games is one of the game's "most wallrunning friendly maps" the developer has ever created. You can read more about War Games on the Titanfall website.

War Games is one of three new maps coming to Titanfall through the upcoming Expedition DLC. The other two are called Swampland and Runoff, though Respawn hasn't said much about these maps yet.

The Expedition DLC is included with the $25 Titanfall DLC Pass and can be purchased separately for $10. A new 2v2 Last Titan Standing mode is also coming to Titanfall sometime in the future and will be available as a free download for all players.

Titanfall launched for Xbox One and PC on March 11 and was the top-selling game overall in the United States during the month. The Xbox 360 version was released on April 8. For more on Titanfall, be sure to read GameSpot's previous coverage.

The Titanfall DLC is making Mario Kart 8 look really good right now, and I shouldn't be able to say that about this "new next gen" game. Ouch.


Now that the hype is out of our systems, can we admit that Titanfall was not all they said it would be.


Sad to say, but Titanfall has just made me appreciate Halo and COD more. Titanfall is fun, but  it gets old quick and honestly the dreaded COD Ghosts plays smoother. AND I am totally not compelled to keep playing Titanfall the way I am with other games. No DLC for me.


See you on the tracks of Mario Kart! Ouch again.

hard enough to find a game as it is, now the player base is going to get thinned out coz some will get the dlc and some wont.

Already? A thing that sucks about the XB achievement system versus PS trophies is that you can get 1000 g in a game and get credit for having completed that game, but as soon as the DLC drops, your completionist status is erased, while once you earn a valuable Platinum trophy on PS it doesn't get erased, and the DLC just adds a separate set of trophies to unlock which doesn't interfere with your previous accomplishments. Titanballs needs some free maps like they gave away in KZ

sounds like a copy+paste of assets created for the other maps??

The game needs more weapons and titans and pilot customization I expected better from former COD employees you can tell that the game was rushed.

its loads of fun to play though i die, i dont give a shit, my titan explodes and i bail out i dont give a shit it brings the fun back in fps's for me at least sure theres a bunch of content missing and no story except for the in game voices but hey if your having fun playing it,all that matters

This game is lame.. smart pistol, aim assists, no server browser, no mod support, have to wait ages in lobbies, barely any one playing, most the modes are dead, very little content, barely any guns to choose from, boring and bland maps.


I hope COD adds a mech mode, then there is no reason for Titanfail to exist.

I like to say i love the setting of this game true sci fi it kinda makes me think the modern shooter are abit dull

I'm happy with the level of content and love the game overall. The only thing I really don't like is the regeneration system. It's a pain to have to re-do all your load outs when you had already spent so much time getting it perfect for your style of play.

Can't wait! Titanfall is easily my favorite One game so far.

The game released with half the content of most games and yet they still found time to complete the DLC. The industry is a fucking joke and the people buying this shit are idiots.

I like this game - lots of fun - a few things though


I have the 360 version - and the borders of all elements need to be tightened up.

If you are standing next/close to a gun turret - and fire your anti-titan weapon - it will hit an invisible wall. Same goes for shooting out the edge of windows. You also should be able to shoot your anti-titan weapon while riding on a friendly titan - as it is now - you will hit the titan. 


There should be a way to steal opponents burn cards - like how you could steal care packages. Maybe have a pickpocket perk.

Angel City is by far the best map and all new maps should be held to that standard

Solid game but there just isn't enough depth to it to keep me coming back. Not enough guns, perks, game modes, etc. It got boring rather quickly.

For the peaple that are saying "F*** Titanfall, I'll just wait for Titanfall 2". Have fun waiting till 2016.

ah, my comment was deleted for some reason.


It just stated that I wanted to see more on the swamp land map.  

I think it could be a cool map in theory.  Wondered if the water of the swamp would have any affect on cloaking.


Also to some of those seeing the pic above, and saying it looks like the maps in the game. There are some more pictures on their website in the link in the article.  I actually like the look of this War Games, I like the digital grid like background surrounding the map.

Match making and hit detection need a major overhaul before I consider any dlc for this pile of a game

Looks like it could be from any of the maps from the actual game.

I really like playing this game, but I just have a problem with a multiplayer-only title with paid DLC consisting of a few maps.

This one will be not be an automatic purchase for me. And I buy my share of DLC. This one just rubs me the wrong way.

@Cerulean7 I'm still enjoying it. Have a friend or two over, drink, and every time you die, pass off the controller. It's funny as hell.

@Cerulean7 Because everything is a contest for your opinion...

@Cerulean7  Titanfall in my mind did exactly what it was set out to do give me a great experience that I have not had since the early COD games aka COD 4 and MW2. For that short period of time I was hooked and in another world. Yes its main problem is content count. With such great balancing must come less content by nature. Just like the balance between quality and quantity Titanfall fell into the trap of too much quality. (If anyone refers to graphics please eat your own face) Stating that DLC is making Mario Kart 8 look better, cycling around the 8 here is just wtf. You are comparing a a few maps to a full game and not just a full game the 8th version of the game. What you are saying is that it took 8 attempts to get you to notice.


I wont be playing Mario Kart! Ouch.

@trackles  Needing more weapons and titans is not a problem, balancing is their number 1 priority along side with the fun factor. You cannot say the game was rushed when it was in development for over 4 years. Their is a point when it because extremely hard to add to a product and only by launching a product can you find the faults and things that may have been missed.

@trackles  you have to remember.  these guys left COD when the only thing you could modify was the weapon skin.  Which in my opinion sometimes ruins the coolness of the guns (depending on the gun).

@mred1289  Yeah. I'm not all that great at it either, but I have a ton of fun!

@gajbutler  Is there really hardly anyone playing already?  I find that hard to believe.  I tried the beta and didn't like it, so I'm definitely not some fanboy :).  But, it just sounds like maybe you are exaggerating, a little :).

@mufz_  You don't have to regen.  Regeneration does nothing except give you a badge.

@jdc6305 One of the major reasons I did not waste my money on it, there are many free to play FPS's out there that are just as good and offer far more content than this.

@StarCarlton  what you are describing doesn't happen in the PC version. I've never had a problem shooting an anti-titan weapon from a friendly titan or any of the others you said.

@Pikdum  ever time you regen it changes the way you have to play, it makes it challenging.

@wallacom  Well considering the state its in who really cares? So many other games with way more content worth playing. This was fun for a few days, when I unlocked everything rofl.

@b74kd3th Hit detection was my biggest issue with the game and it doesn't seem like Respawn is doing anything about it, oh well I got it free for PC so at least I don't feel ripped off.

@Hunter1428 @AshTrai
Even though I've been defending Titanfall, that image DOES look very similar to the side garages of the main building in the Training Ground map - the raised tank, the ability to drop below it, even the size of the room.

I'm sure the rest of the map is different, but the image above does look like a re-use of the room.

@bobbo888  you would have hated older shooters that had zero unlocks.  Its pathetic gamers these days need that carrot on a stick to have fun

@dbene Maybe not. How many DLC packs are supposed to be released?
