Titanfall 2’s upcoming Monarch’s Reign DLC pack releases on May 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and is free to players. This DLC brings you a brand new Titan, Maps and more! Read below to see what’s coming in this upcoming DLC.
New Titan: Monarch
Monarch is a mid-range Vanguard-class Titan that can upgrade itself on the battlefield through her unique Upgrade Core. Pilots select a path of upgrades and try to survive long enough to reach her final form.
Monarch’s design is based on the salvaged, badly burnt remains of two Vanguard-class Titans recovered by the IMC from the Battle of Typhon. While the Vanguard-class was designed by the Militia for armed recon deep behind enemy lines, the IMC’s mandate for Monarch focused on flexibility through survival and support options, to serve many operational roles.
Although Vinson Dynamics* was unable to reverse-engineer and replicate key aspects of the original Vanguard design, they brought their own R&D innovations when creating Monarch. One of these innovations is her Upgrade Core, which allows her to improve her combat abilities during a battle, based on options set by her Pilot. Monarch also has an impressive ability to draw power from enemy Titans to recharge her own shields, or the shields of her friendly Titans.
Despite the IMC and Vinson Dynamics’ efforts to maintain secrecy, several shipments of early Monarch production variants invariably leaked onto the black market, allowing mercenary Pilots and independent manufacturers across the Frontier to discover her true potential.
New Prime Titans [purchasable]
Behold: Ronin and Tone Prime
New map: Relic
Set among the old wreck of the IMC carrier IMS Odyssey, Relic is a worksite where Pilots have created clever wall running routes by hanging pieces of the wreckage between buildings. The map consists of the wreck of the Odyssey in the center of the map that splits the two town areas.
Created with frontlines in mind, the gameplay is all about assaulting and controlling the center and engaging in firefights from the great viewpoints of the ship against the varied defensible positions in the Town.
Map Update: Crashsite
We worked on a collision pass for Crashsite, fixing around 100 instances of getting bumped, bonked, stuck or tripped up. During the clean-up, we also wanted to experiment with more mobility options. To that end we’ve added 8 ziplines to get around the map faster and a few more wallrunning locations.
New Execution: Now You See Me [Cloak]
• I’d explain this one but let’s wait for the trailer to really show this off.

To celebrate the release of a brand new Titan and those sexy Primes, Titan Brawl will make its grand return to the Featured Mode spot on 5/30 and we’ll be giving double XP for all modes. Some time after the patch, we’ll also be introducing some major balancing changes that we’ll be experimenting with in the Featured Mode spot as well.
Don’t forget Monarch Reign DLC is out on May 30 and can expect a patch as well. We’ll let you know when the patch is made available.
