Watch Titanfall's Frontier's Edge DLC in Action; Launches July 31

The second Titanfall map pack and fifth game update are just over a week away from release.

Titanfall's second DLC pack is just over a week away from release. Developer Respawn Entertainment announced today that Frontier's Edge will arrive on July 31. You can check out the replay of a Respawn live stream showing it in action below.

Respawn noted during today's stream that we'll be getting patch notes next week for the next free game update, which will arrive alongside Frontier's Edge. Its biggest addition is the Black Market, an in-game store where you'll be able to purchase packs of burn cards, insignias for your Titan, XP boosts, and so on. These will be available in exchange for credits, a new currency being added that is earned by playing matches, completing daily challenges (another new addition), and selling burn cards. If this is beginning to sound like it's being added in order to offer microtransactions, worry not--credits can't be purchased with real-world money.

Other aspects of the next update include multi-GPU support on PC, a notification for when a flag carrier hops aboard your Titan, and various bug fixes.

As detailed earlier this month, Frontier's Edge--the second of three planned DLC packs--consists of three new maps: Dig Site, Haven, and Export. It's included in the $25 season pass, and will also be sold on its own for $10. As with the first map pack, Expedition, Frontier's Edge will launch first on Xbox One and PC, and sometime later on Xbox 360. This is due to the 360 version being developed by Bluepoint, rather than Respawn. In the case of Expedition, it was about a month's wait.

What do you think about the new map pack and game update? Let us know in the comments.

I wonder...went on metacritic recently and saw a lot of 0 scores for this. If Titanfall or future iterations of the franchise came to the PS4 would little ponies continue to hate the game? or would they do a 180 and start praising it? Neigh little ponies, neigghhh.

xboxdynasty8 thanks for your fanboy tirade, but if i was a ps fanboy i wouldnt have bought and played this game. but thanks for thinking outside the box.


maybe im just too old for you and have been playing games for too long, but the BF3 DLC gave you more maps, extra game modes, new weapons, new vehicles... the mass effect 3 DLC which was free game you new levels, new playable characters, new enemies, new weapons... 


they didnt give you 3 maps and then drop a whole game mode or two

New maps are fine and all, but how about some new guns or something?

Titanfall!  Every map is unique in it's own way, and changes how the game or game type plays.  Worth every penny.

THANKS for the flag carrier rider notification!  Too many times I'd jump on a nearby Titan, and just pray that he knew how to play the game mode...  Usually not.


Much like the last set, this pack will bring me back for a week or so.  I absolutely loved the swamp map, and the industrial map was likewise excellent.  Holo-sim map was disappointing.  It's still a fun game (particularly with friends), but after so many hours from release through May I'm just kind of done with it for awhile.

$10 and only three maps?!? The DLC will probably include some other goodies, but still DLC nowadays seems to get less and less content. Killzone 2 took the cake with its 2 map + 1 new weapon DLCs.

I like how if you don't automatically like an Exclusive game your a Fanboy i can honestly say this game needs more Titans and other stuff over Maps. Maps are only fun till you know them. I have played this game and honestly i just don't like it Gameplay wise it gets boring fast. (incoming people claiming i am a Fanboy)

Creative game with incredibly fast movement speed. I dig it.

Gotta say… they are absolutely killing it with their maps.

Has this game become deeper then a puddle yet?

I've been chatting with one of the Evolve personnel over at Turtle Rock. They are essentially going to give the maps for free for the simple fact it does not fragment the player base.

This makes real practical sense for the longevity of the game.

I'm going to make the most original comment ever on a Titanfall video: People still play this?

Xbox One community is dead. Play on PC, kiddies. Get off your over price "bricks" and come to the real "next gen"

Ah yes this game! ...Wait it still around?

I still love this game!  One of the best game's to come out in years and the best Xbox One game for sure!


Incoming jealous 'sony only' tr0lls' lol.

hmm to be honest i think this is what respawn is trying test here.


release a half baked game even though they already have more content ready to go. 


so they have people pay 60 for the game then are testing the market on how rapidly released dlcs help improve revenue.  


im gonna guess alot of the this "dlc" content was probably ready or almost ready at release. 


its pretty smart, muliple quick released dlcs keep people interested in the game,  and we'll probably be seeing more of this in games in the future. 


wenisman

its rude to ask gamers to pay for content that should have been there on release. $10 for 3 maps is ridiculous, it should have been $10 for 9 maps...

@PixelAddict Picked it back up recently and couldn't agree more.  Still feels like a breath of fresh air.

@blackothh I have a feeling you'll find the gameplay outstanding when the sequel comes to PS4.

@xboxdynasty8 Wow first time i saw anything on this game, either here or on youtube since pre release hype. Must be good lol.

@awake514 I played it when Origin offered it for free. It was just as crappy and boring on there.

WolfgarTheQuiet

@awake514 Maybe, but then i will never experience best PlayStation titles never to see light of the day on PC. its funny i always played more games on PC but my all time best games remain on all PlayStations. So if you are not into casual games you need to own PlayStaion ( all of them 1-4 ) and a PC. 


No point in owning Xone since its best and not so good exclusives end up on PC, like Dead Rising 3 (which was not that good)

@quicktim3 If you've actually played the game, you'd understand why it's a full priced game and to people who actually play it - it's worth it.

@quicktim3 Didn't they already do the trailblazing for that with CoD? Or am I thinking of Dice and their premium shyte...

@wenisman The game had 15 maps from the get go, that already is a lot. I do agree that $10 for 3 maps is a bit too much, but saying they should've been there at release and free is a bit self-entitled.

@wenisman 

If console gamers had the tools we use to have on PC where we could build our own maps?....they would slap themselves for ever buying them.

@xboxdynasty8 @Deadlysyns87 I actually can't tell if this is sarcastic or not. Rambling gibberish...


Titan Burn cards were fun, but hardly "changed the entire dynamic of the game."


The Burn Card Market, however, WILL do exactly that.

@stickybun @blackothh I dont plan on owning a ps4 or xbox ever, so that point is moot, but as far as gameplay goes, its the most shallow boring fps game ive ever seen, even worst then modern warfare garbage. I would say im baffled on how the game is still being played, but since there are so many modern warfare zombies, im not surprised.

GRADERBLADE13

@stickybun @blackothh I have a PS4, but I play on the PC. While the gameplay is really fun and does a lot of new things well, I can't help but get bored if I play for more than an hour. It's not one of those games where I could be playing, and then look at the clock 4 hours later and wonder where the time went.

@Stebsis @wenisman 

Then allow people to make their own. Some of the best maps I've ever played were made by the community.
Of course that won't happen because Devs and Publishers want people to pay for them.

@xboxdynasty8 @Divisionbell Its funny you're being the Biggest Hypocrite on here calling out Sony fanboys well acting like an immature Fanboy yourself i wonder why no one takes you seriously. People are entitled to their opinion insulting them because yours is not the same makes you 100% worse then the people you are insulting.

PixelAddict

@blackothh It's being played because it moves FAST like Unreal Tournament, requires vertical movement strategy as well as horizontal, and the maps are very creative.

But keep on complaining.

What are you talking about? I primarily game on Xbox consoles, but sorry if I don't see the point in fighting about what others game on. It's all just personal choice.

@seanwil545 Have you played 'user created' games on GTA5?  For the most part, they are bad and focus mainly on hacks and exploits in lieu of an actual challenge.


I'll take a dev created map any day of the week.  And that's coming from someone who plays Titanfall at least 4 or 5 times a week - aka, an actual fan.

@Sevenizz @seanwil545 But in GTA5 you just place things in an already created map, it's very different when creating a whole map yourself, and the best ones will stand out from the bad ones, there are people who want to create actually good content for a game. GTA5 is very bad example especially when people on PC haven't gotten their hands on it yet.

@xboxdynasty8 @tony56723 Yeah screw me for speaking the truth right? And whats with the insult? Are you assuming I only have a playstation?
