Titanfall: Expedition

Overview -

'Titanfall: Expedition' marks the first of three planned map packs for Respawn Entertainment's exquisite multiplayer shooter, 'Titanfall.' Though the need for new maps is debatable, as DLC, map packs sell well, and so maps it is. Whether or not they fit in the mold or carve out a new corner in the experience is the only question worth answering. That and: how many titans can you fit in a sewage drain?

Video Review


Both 'War Games' and 'Swampland' stretch the visual variety in unexpected and pleasing ways, while 'Runoff' fits somewhere between drab and spacious on the spectrum of map design. I'd even go far as to say 'Swampland' promotes a real sense of mystery in its fogged-over landscape, though essentially the games play out just as frantically as ever. 'War Games,' on the other hand, has a lot more fun with some original 'Titanfall' map ideas and challenges the tenet of visual cohesion present in most multiplayer games.

Audio Review


Not much changed or improved here. The titans still clash with alarming crunchiness and the pilots still "squish" beneath their feet.

Final Thoughts

'Expedition,' with just three maps and nothing else for the game, is fulfilling only for those with bare expectations. However, two of the three maps are now among the best the game has to offer, which means that 'Titanfall' as whole is indeed improved. Between finding routes amongst the crowded forest of 'Swampland' and navigating the complex maze of 'War Games,' the already excellent gameplay takes turns exploring new, fun, and interesting directions, which is the best you can ask from new maps.
