IMC Rising the third DLC edition for Titanfall is set to arrive on the Xbox One and Windows PC on Thursday. A new trailer for the downloadable content has been released ahead of the content showing brand new action and adventure ahead for those playing IMC Rising.
IMC Rising brings a host of new content including three new maps to Titanfall. Blackwater is the first map, which is a hidden bootlegging colony. IMC Rising’s Sand Trap is a facility said to be built atop some old fuel reservoirs. The third new map in IMC Rising for Titanfall is Zone 18, a robotics facility.
Respawn first unveiled IMC Rising for Titanfall last month at Gamescom. The company says this third DLC for Titanfall will explore brand new adventures, locations and areas of the science fiction universe the game is built upon. The first two DLC for Titanfall, Expedition and Frontier’s Edge carried out the same tasks, including some new Titans and new missions.
Last week, Titanfall game designer Chris Dionne wrote on the official Titanfall website about what the goals of one map, Sand Trap were in particular. “One of my main goals with Sand Trap was to use old ideas in new ways. In the center is a buried bunker inspired by the buried architecture in Fracture; this lets Titans stomp around above while pilots scurry below.” He said. “Across the map are deep trenches that create a well-run highway for pilots; inspired by wall running in Rise they give quick and (relatively) safe routes across the map.”
PC Gamer points out that the trench network in this part of IMC Rising will likely remind players of the wall-running possibilities previously featured in Rise but there is a big twist. The trenches in Sand Trap are filled to the brim with “unrefined fuel.” This means the Titanfall players will have to run alongside the pits instead of taking refuge and attacking other Titanfall users from the bottom.
With IMC Rising being the third and final DLC for Titanfall, Respawn and Microsoft have a lot riding on the enjoyment of these maps and missions. While the game was a huge hit when it was released, it has lost some serious steam along the way. Games like Destiny have managed to almost completely overshadow that was the flagship enterprise for Microsoft and its Xbox One. IMC Rising for Titanfall is hitting PC and Xbox One on September 25 but there is no announced release date for the Xbox 360 version.
