Titanfall 2 won’t be launching until later this month, but today we’re already learning that the game will be getting a free map later this year. Developer Respawn Entertainment has revealed that the game will be getting the Angel City map for free, which will go live in December. A specific release date for the map wasn’t shared, but pre-ordering the game gets you 3 days of early access to it.
The news was revealed by the developer in a new blog post, saying “Fully remastered, Angel City is a map that is near and dear to many of us here at Respawn, and has proven to be a fan favorite since players first got their hands on it in the original Titanfall. We can’t wait to see how the community uses all the exciting new Pilot and Titan gameplay mechanics we’re bringing to Titanfall 2 on Angel City.”
They also revealed that they’re “adding some cool content to the Titanfall 2 Digital Deluxe Edition by including Prime upgrades for the Ion and Scorch. These Prime upgrades modify the physical appearance of the Ion and Scorch, introduce new sound effects, and offer up some killer new executions. None of these items impact the balance of the gameplay, they’re just a chance for you to show a little more flair on the Frontier.”
Finally, they say that the game will be getting cosmetic items in the form of paid DLC in the future, but they will in no way impact the actual gameplay. More news on post-launch DLC will be coming soon.
Titanfall 2 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28th.
