The last month has been a little rough for Titanfall 2. While Respawn Entertainment's mech-infused shooter sequel didn't fare too well in the charts, EA are clinging to the hopes of a long-term success for the title; starting with the game's first incoming DLC.
'Angel City's Most Wanted' is the first of these planned updates, and it's coming in just a week's time. Landing on November 30, the patch will introduce a new map, weapons, kits and more. There's even a micro-transaction store, but Respawn put heavy emphasis on ensuring the items available are merely cosmetic and simply rely on a flat purchase rather than RNG loot boxes or crafting materials.
Talking through the announcement post, Respwan said "We will have no in-game currency exchange. No locked loot boxes, crafting shards or pay-to-win weaponry. No RNG. If you see something you like, you buy it and that’s it. These in no way effect stats and are purely cosmetic. We will have two Prime Titans available at launch. They have new chassis and assassinations but function the exact same way as their original counterparts."
Here's a quick note of the major additions being pushed through during next week's patch;
- Wingman Elite Pistol
- Titan Kits: Get more customisation for your Titan with these all new kits.
- Ion: Refraction Lens
- Splitter Rifle splits 5 ways
- Scorch: Scorched Earth
- Flame Core ignites the ground, leaving thermite in its wake
- Northstar: Threat Optics
- Enemies are highlighted while zooming in
- Tone: Burst Loader
- Aiming allows the 40mm to store up to 3 shots to burst fire
- Legion: Hidden Compartment
- Power Shot has two charges
- Ronin: Phase Reflex
- When doomed, Ronin phases out of danger
- Pilot Execution: Inner Pieces
- Phase into an unsuspecting victim
- Stats screen
- FAQ menu
- In-game store
While there's only the 1 map arriving this year, Respawn do promise more updates similar to this one will be coming in 2017. Instead, there's Double XP weekends and shaken-up game modes coming throughout the remainded of 2016.
We hear the game is turning up at around half-price over the weekend, too, so it might be time to grab your own titan.
