Titanfall 2's Next DLC is Titled Operation Frontier Shield
« on: July 18, 2017, 09:48:45 PM »



For those of you who are always looking forward to new Titanfall 2 DLC you’re in luck. The new DLC is titled “Operation Frontier Shield” and will be available for free on 7.25. 2017 (July 25). You can watch the video below to see what’s coming to the DLC.



Read below to see what’s coming to the DLC:

New Mode: FRONTIER DEFENSE!



• Co-op 4 player mode.

• Defend your Harvester against 5 waves of increasingly difficult enemies.

• Earn cash for defeating enemies that you can spend in between waves to purchase tools like

• Batteries, Arc Traps, Sentries, and more.

• Choose from Easy / Regular / Hard / Master difficulty.

• There will be an Insane difficulty as well that will exist in a separate tile as a Featured Mode.

• New Titan Progression – ‘Aegis Ranks’:

· Earn Aegis Ranks by completing matches of Frontier Defense. Aegis Ranks can unlock powerful upgrades for your Titans, helping you succeed at higher difficulty levels. For now these Ranks will only apply to Frontier Defense.

• New, challenging enemy types to battle.

• 5 maps supported at launch:
· Homestead
· Forwardbase Kodai
· War Games
· Rise
· Blackwater Canal

• We are currently testing additional maps and will add more in future

• We’ll be showing more of Frontier Defense in an upcoming tutorial video around launch.

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.



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.



We’ve also made some renovations to our in-game store so you can browse new releases and easily see sales that are happening. Expect to see limited time sales, bundles, and more in the future. The timing is here is good because we have some rad new stuff coming you can buy.

NEW PURCHASABLE CONTENT
In this DLC you’ll be introduced to new Elite Warpaints for weapons and Titans that you can buy. These will not only look awesome but also provide XP Boosts. Let’s break them down:

ELITE WARPAINTS FOR WEAPONS [PURCHASABLE]
Each Elite Weapon Warpaint below will give you a chance for double xp just for you and a merit boost for you and your team. These must be owned but do not have to be equipped to earn the boost.

GAME IMPROVEMENTS

• Added more out of bounds triggers to Complex.

• New stats page for maps, including tracking of Frontier Defense difficulty levels.

• Visual improvements for Weapon and Titan stats pages.

TITAN BALANCE

General

• Ogre class Titans now have a baseline of 1 dash with a 10 second cooldown.

• Turbo Engine will now reduce cool down of Scorch and Legion’s dashes to 5 seconds. It will still behave the same as before for other Titan classes.

• Overcore now gives 20% core meter.

• Electric Smoke unlocks at 20% instead of 25%.

Ronin

• Sword Block damage reduction reduced by 5%.

Scorch

• Scorch will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.

• Increased Firewall’s width.

• Scorch Kits

• Wildfire Launcher now increases the direct-hit damage of the Thermite Launcher. It still increases the amount of fire spread.

• Scorched Earth’s lingering fire lasts longer.

• Tempered Plating now makes Scorch immune to crits and his own thermite damage.

• Fixed a bug with Flame Core not igniting Incendiary Traps.

Legion

• Legion will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.

• Hidden Compartment: Power Shot has two charges and Power Shot damage is reduced by 15%.

Monarch

• XO-16 base magazine size increased to 40 rounds.

• Reduced the strength of the slow effect of Energy Siphon.

• Slightly reduced effectiveness of Arc Rounds against Vortex Shield and Heat Shield.

• Multi-Target Missile System no longer locks onto cloaked targets.

PILOT BALANCE

General

• Aim Assist settings have been modified for Assault Rifles and SMGs.

• ARs and SMGs require you to be aiming closer to your target before any ADS assist takes effect.

• Reduced the overall effectiveness of ADS assist for Assault Rifles.

• Titan Hunter kit modified to be 10% extra Titan meter from damage instead of 10% Titan Meter on Titan Kill.

Phase Shift

• Now has just 1 charge, but recharges faster.

SMG’s

• Medium and long damage significantly reduced.

• One of the positive changes we saw in the High TTK playlist was the increase of weapon diversity. It is our hope that between the Aim Assist nerf and this SMG nerf, we’ll see weapon diversity increased across all three platforms.

G2

• Reduced fire rate.

DMR

• Reduced fire rate: In this particular instance, we felt that the reduced fire rate simply made the gun feel better since the gun stabilizes better between shots.

Flatline

• Slightly reduced damage at medium range. It still has the best medium range damage of any Assault Rifle.

Archer

• No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Smart Pistol

• No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Sidearms

• High TTK playlist changes for the P2016, Wingman, Wingman Elite, and Mozambique have been brought over to bring their power level down now that all Pilots can carry a secondary weapon.

Melee

• Lunge time and melee hit frames changed to .3 seconds from .2 seconds. This will help people firing weapons, particularly automatic weapons, get extra shots in before the lunge completes.

• Melee lunge range reduced.

• Non-lunge melee attack range increased. This will help with the cases where melee looks like it should hit but doesn’t connect with the target.

GAME MODE ADJUSTMENTS:

Various improvements to the UI for Private Match, including increased visibility of text chat on PC.

MISC BUG FIXES

• Fixed issues with purchasable Nose Arts not showing up correctly on Titans.

• Spectators in Marked for Death can no longer be marked for death.

• (Xbox One) Buttons and pod doors in War Games intro sequence now play at the correct volume.

• Titan Nose Arts flagged as Advocate Gift unlocks may now actually be awarded when opening Advocate Gifts.

Ooh, a Horde/Firefight-type mode. Should be interesting to play... hopefully there's matchmaking for at least the lower-difficulty levels.

Edit: There is matchmaking, and it's fun to play :D
