We are drawing pretty close to the May release of Titanfall‘s first DLC pack Expedition, and it’s interesting to see exactly what Respawn have planned for the pack. We already saw the War Games map back in April, and now the official Titanfall website has been updated to showcase another upcoming map – Runoff.

As Designer Geoff Smith explains, Runoff began as an experiment in making a small map without neutering Titans. Naturally the answer is verticality – the map has two levels, up top where it’s nice and airy and clean, or down in the trench with the dirt and water. The map has also been designed with more chokepoints than usual – and the trench is a big one – once you fall in, exiting is only possible at its two endpoints.

Chokepoints are something I have definitely missed during my time in Titanfall, so I’m definitely interested in checking out Runoff when Expedition hits. Check out the blog post for more details and lots of sweet pictures.

The new maps in Expedition DLC all seem fairly compact, Hope the next DLC has maps with more open space.
