Titanfall: Frontiers Edge DLC Review
Frontiers Edge sees the second set of the three DLC packs release for Titanfall. With it, it bring maps called Dig Site, Export, and Haven, all of which are big maps! Especially Dig Site which is an enormous map!
Haven’s setting is a beautiful beach resort, vibrant in colours, it seems the ideal setting to pack your bags and go for a nice break… That is until the Titans and Pilots come along. Its a fairly big map with the outer section that surrounds the entire map being available for Titans for roam with a few sections in the middle of the town they can get to. Where as the many buildings and levels will keep Pilots entertained. The map offers both Snipers and CQC (Close Quarters Combat) plenty of room to play with, so whether you’re in it for the “long” (being referenced to Snipers) game or whether you like the run and gun battles, this map will have plenty for every game type!
Dig site is by far the biggest map of the 3. Based in a mining complex there’s no end of room for Titans to roam about, whether it be at the far end section of the map, or the narrow gullys within the centre of the map, there’s plenty of room for battle. This map is a huge benefit for Snipers as there are at points, massive gaps between areas and buildings, and there’s plenty of rooftop space for a Sniper to set up camp and pick people off. There is an achievement for this map, to get 12 pilot kills in a match. Not impossible, but i think due to the sheer size of the map, and how up and down it is, this could be a tricky one to get.
Export is my favourite map of the 3. Within the map you can go from Roof to Roof across the vast amount of buildings. There is also a ‘Trap’ on this map, where once activated, if an enemy is to get in its way will end up killing them, and if you haven’t done it yet, then it will activate an Achievement at the end of the match.
I have to admit that i love the style of the maps, they seem well laid out, and complement the game modes available. Specially Export on Capture the Flag, as there is a zip line that can take you over half the way home. Only problem with it, is that its right across the middle of the map, so you’re pretty much in view of everyone!
This again is another strong map pack that has been brought out. I love these maps, they work well and compliment the other maps in the game! I would highly recommend these maps to any one!
