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

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.
