Titanfall 2: Operation Frontier Shield DLC detailed, arrives July 25th

Titanfall 2 Frontier Defense

EA today officially announced Titanfall 2‘s next DLC drop. Titled “Operation Frontier Shield,” the free DLC comes with the highly anticipated horde mode that players had so long clamored for.

Frontier Defense is a co-op 4 player mode in which you must defend your Harvester against waves of increasingly difficult enemies. But horde mode is just the tip of the DLC iceberg.

New Map: Rise

Also included with Operation Frontier Shield is a brand new map: Rise.

“Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.”

New Live Fire Map: Township

“A new modular construction of a residential firefight. Cover is sparse for Pilots bold enough to leave the safety of a few houses. Windows and rooftops decide who controls the map, but dense interiors can always hold surprises.”
