Titanfall’s Expedition map pack has a backstory that no one will ever know

, | News

Titanfall for the Xbox One and PC gets the Expedition map pack DLC today. (Xbox 360 players can get the Expedition DLC in June.) The map pack has three maps. War Games is set in a virtual reality training area with Tron-inspired visuals, Runoff is a map with deep trenches and high walkways that pilots can scurry across, and Swampland features a battlefield with towering trees that should offer attractive routes for parkour fans. Hilariously, there’s a background story to these maps! I’m sure this will resonate with players as much as the game’s campaign plot. It had one, right? Something about manufacturing robots and a crashed space ship?

In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat. On an uncharted world, the IMC begin construction of a new fleet operations base, using newly acquired water collection and filtration plants to support the new base. When drainage operations reveal ancient ruins and artifacts of an unknown origin in a nearby swamp, Spyglass activates an archaeological team to investigate the site. To maintain battle readiness at the new base, IMC Pilots use simulation pods to train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.

The Expedition map pack for Titanfall is available for $9.99, or as part of the Season Pass.
