Respawn announces third 'Titanfall' map pack, 'IMC Rising'

Developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher EA have announced the third map pack for "Titanfall," though details surrounding the downloadable content are sparse.

The map pack, "IMC Rising," was announced at Germany's Gamescom conference today, and it will include three new maps: Blackwater, Zone 18 and Sandtrap. No details were provided about the maps, however, other than the fact that the DLC will cost $10, the same price as the last two map packs, and it will release "this fall." Those who purchased the $25 "Titanfall" season pass will also receive the map pack, which is the third and final DLC in the subscription.

Despite the lack of details, the name "IMC Rising" implies the maps will likely have something to do with the game's Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation faction, which is one of two playable sides. In the game's lore, the IMC is a powerful organization that mines resources.

"Frontier's Edge," the game's second map pack, launched on July 31 alongside a significant update. It and the game's first map pack, "Expedition," also included three maps each. Respawn spokeswoman Abbie Heppe said at EA's Gamescom press conference that more significant free updates to "Titanfall" will also be on the way, similar to game's addition of a Black Market in-game credit system.

Maybe for you, I don't buy games with DLC and neither do most of the people I play with. DLC is here to stay in crappy franchises supported by ignorant gamers. I would much rather throw my money at CD Project Red or Reakktor Studios or Robert Space Industries or Ragequit than a company whos business plan revolves around selling half-done games and charging their customers more for the complete product.

2008 or 2108, if I'm still around I'll still hold true to my ideals.

If only there were some players on the DLC. I have sat for many minutes waiting for a game for the Frontier DLC... and nothing. That basically means I've paid for something that's unusable. Are there refund processes for this ?

People have moved on to the second DLC, but you can still play it mixed in with the full playlist. Still, it will only mix you with people who have only that DLC I think.

No, I'm talking about the second DLC. I sit there for many minutes without entering a game.
Oh, odd. Well I know I've gone back to the all maps playlists and haven't had problems. Don't know about the DLC specific playlists anymore.
