Titanfall: Expedition Map Details

The Titanfall Website has a rundown on what to expect from War Games, one of the maps in the upcoming Expedition DLC for Titanfall, Respawn's multiplayer mech shooter. The post offers a top-down layout and screenshots to show off what designer Jason McCord calls one of their "most wallrunning friendly maps with a fun visual hook and plenty of space for Titans to engage in large scale battles. Here's more:

War Games is a new map for Titanfall, based in a virtual world where Pilots compete in simulated environments of Angel City, Rise and Airbase Sierra.

When brainstorming ideas for the first Titanfall DLC map pack, the concept of a level in the training mission simulator got a lot of people excited. Designers imagined a level that was smooth, clean and abstract - a perfect place to design easy-to-read battle spaces and wallrun paths. Artists had images of differently themed areas mixed with digital artifacts and colorful lighting. The concept maintained throughout development was "parkour playground".

The concept of a simulator level allowed for themed areas to act as the hardpoints while the buildings between are in the smooth, featureless style of the training mission rooms. The IMC start in an Airbase-style structure, complete with working Marvins and a tank repair garage. Some areas throughout the map will be "glitching out", providing landmarks that let you that you’re fighting in a virtual simulator.
