Titanfall: IMC Rising DLC Now Available

The gaming landscape is filled with Titanfall competition and yet somehow the pilot fanbase is still solid enough find matches without issue. The mix of parkour and ‘Titan’ (dem be mechs to Bunneh) are an irresistible collage of explosions, metal parts, jumping, and …well, explosions!

This latest DLC called IMC Rising is the final delivery of maps that will be available as a part of their Season Pass. This DLC, priced at $9.99, has another trifecta of multiplayer maps called Backwater, Zone 18, and Sand Trap.

Here’s the descriptive detail of the maps and their meaning in this Titan filled universe:

Zone 18 – The Robotics LabZone 18 is a unique addition to Titanfall. You’ll notice that most of the roofs are the same height, forcing players to deviate from the strategy of getting to the highest ground. The decommissioned Hammond robotics factory is designed to force players into meeting each other; it’s more open and spacious than most other maps, making it the perfect field for Titans.


Backwater – The Bootlegging Colony

When you hear these moonshiners, you might think of the Appalachian Mountains, but the rice paddies of Backwater give the map more of an Asian feel. Expect a lot of elevation changes on this map, meaning lots of high points to gain the upper ground. But watch out for the large underground grain storage facilities, where pilots can escape and move between hardpoints. Hardcore Titanfall fans will recognize the map as part of the first concept art shown for the game!


Sand Trap – Desert Wasteland

The rolling dunes of Sand Trap are a playground for Titans, giving them ample space to wage battle. And buried in the sand in the center of the map is an old bunker, where pilots can take refuge from the Titans above, and fight each other. Trenches along the sides of the map provide quick wall-running pathways for pilots to move around on. But watch out: All that unrefined oil at the bottom of the trenches means instant death for anyone who misses a jump.

Interestingly enough, the content will accompany the newly opened content from Update 6. In that update, pilots receive a Pilot Skirmish mode with no AI and no Titans. Also, the Black Market receives daily deals on Burn cards to allow special card purchases that shift all the time.

Here’s to hoping future updates will be surrounding the NEXT Titanfall game!
