Titanfall DLC Could Include Maps With Alien Monsters
As for new Titans, community manager Abbie Heppe says it will be a “huge undertaking”.
If you’ve played Titanfall, you’ll no doubt have spotted the alien “dinosaurs” in the map Boneyard. While there haven’t been any real combative aliens revealed as initially suggested in the Art of Titanfall book, community manager Abbie Heppe says it’s still a possibility.
Speaking to IGN about the upcoming DLC including alien enemies, Heppe said, “We are going to have maps added, and we’re trying to give players as much of a varied look at things as we can so that is definitely a possibility.”
Adding more Titans might be an issue though. “That’s a real big question. In order to [add a Titan] it takes so much balancing to make all the Titan abilities work with each other, and then against pilots.
“It’s a huge undertaking. Originally we just had the Atlas titans and then the team refused to add in the rest of the Titans until we were all sure that that one fitted perfectly with everything else in the game, so… I’m not announcing any new Titans right now!”
As for what the future holds, Heppe said that, “We’re always looking towards iterating and what’s next and what we can learn. So would we do everything exactly the same way? I don’t think any game developer ever would tell you yes. I think we’re always looking at going bigger and better so we’ll see what happens in the future.
“I’m really, really happy with what the team has done though. As a start and exploring what narrative elements we can bring into multiplayer…being one of the first companies that’s doing it the way we did it, I’m pretty happy about that. It’s one of my favourite ways to play the game.”
