    Titanfall 2 - Angel City's Most Wanted.jpg

    Respawn just posted a news on the first DLC release date for Titanfall 2. The first DLC drop is officialled called Angel City's Most Wanted and it'll be releasing on November 30th.

    Best part? All of the content will be FREE. Here's the breakdown on what you can expect in the first downloadable content:
    • Angel City map: A fan favorite map from Titanfall 1 is reborn for Titanfall 2.
      • Fans that pre-ordered Titanfall 2 will get access to the Angel City map starting on November 30. All other players will get access to the Angel City map starting on December 3rd.
    • Wingman Elite Pistol
    • Titan Kits: Get more customization for your Titan with these all new kits.
      • Ion: Split Shot
      • Tone: Preloader
      • Scorch: Backdraft
      • Legion: Powershot
      • Northstar: Threat Vision
      • Ronin: Doom Phase
    • Pilot Execution [Phase Shift]
    • Stats screen
    • FAQ menu
    • In-game store
    In addition to detailing what the first downloadable content will be, they also touched on what sort of events and updates that we can expect in 2016. Here's what they stated we can expect to see:

    • GAME MODE TWISTS
      Changing things up and trying out new ways to play is a big part of how we work here at Respawn. We’re carrying that philosophy over to multiplayer with semi-regular events that will change up rule sets on certain games, giving them a “twist” to how you might normally play them. Changes like these force players (and ourselves) to look at the game differently and try some things you may never have tried before.
    • DOUBLE XP WEEKENDS
      Beyond new content and rules that change the game, we’re also big fans of giving excuses for all your friends to pile into Titanfall 2 over a weekend to reap bonus XP, level up faster or unlock a weapon you’ve had your eye on and generally have some fun. Don’t forget to coordinate with your Networks to optimize your happy hour merit madness!
    • TOP NETWORKS RECOGNITION
      Networks represent our grand experiment to make Titanfall 2 a meaningful social experience for all players. Being a part of a Network is a great way to meet new people and get bonuses for playing, so every week you’ll find us calling out a few Networks we think are worth checking out. You can join as many Networks as you like, so make a point to join one that interests you! It’s a great way to meet fellow Pilots and have fun together.
    • SOCIAL GIVEAWAYS
      Make sure to follow @respawn because every Wednesday we’ll get doing random giveaways that could be anything from the Titanfall 2 Art book, signed posters, and much more.
    Lots of great news, in my opinion. What do you guys think?

    A Angel City 3 day entry perk for preordering T2 should be more like 30 days. I understand that might be excessive but atleast 2 weeks....


    Nothing real special about these announcements. I played LTS for 12 hours the other day......the Maps are boring and lack enthusiasm......amd only played Blackwater Canal 1 time!

    They better hope the new maps regenerate some sort of enthusiasm....because this game is lacking.....I will try to remain optimistic..


    Long weekend here for Turkey Day. Would be a good weekend for Double XP...

    I was just getting ready to post this so thank you.

    I think this looks and sounds great. I'm glad there isn't any pay play or win. Keeping things cosmetic is a good idea bc some will pay, I doubt I will but either way.

    I'm glad they're adding more kits for the titans.

    And I'm really excited angel city is coming and coming soon.

    Really strong work respawn!!!!

    Kernel, yes I hope future maps are a bit more wide open and not the 3 lane concept

    I also hope they look into ping and ttk for pilots.

    What they need to do is include the Power Shots in the Smart Core while its laying lead down range so u don't have to let up on the XO Chain Gun.

    Once the Smart Core initiates it should just go and go and go.....and then POW! Power Shot! It shouldn't miss a beat..


    They need to give the Legion back some of its power........it's too weak now....for what it is.....considering its lack of maneuverability...

    When they nerfed the Legion they nerfed it too much. It's very slow and it should be extremely powerful to make up for it...

    Everyone complained about the Legion because thy weren't running with it. They wanted to run in something much cooler like the Ronin and Tone........but would always get wrecked by the Legion....

    Sure everyone started running in the Legion once they realized how powerful it was but they didn't like the lack of maneuverability....

    Then....everyone bitched and griped.......and got what they wanted.


    Ever notice how few Pilots run in the Legion now? It sucked after the Nerf.....now I get my ass kicked almost everytime. Sure would be nice to win some of those battles...lol

    But ....I've almost Gen'd up all the way... I was committed from the beginning of the game to Max it out and I'll stay committed til I do so......

    Live and Die by the Legion!

    That's a Prime Titan, they look different but perform the same. Only cosmetic things you'll be able to buy in the store (camos, maybe nose-arts, etc).

    My assumption is that this will be an in-game store where you can spend real money to buy cosmetic items (skins for weapons, pilots, titans, etc).

    Dropping only 1 Map is a terrible idea. We need more right now. Angel City is a great Map for sure......

    As I stated above.... the existing maps as a whole are just horrible.

    Respawn would be doing themselves a favor if they dropped a few more ASAP...like a total of 5 new ones....

    Agreed. I'm sorry, but this is completely underwhelming.

    1) TF1 launched with 15 large maps without choke points. TF2 lauched with 9 small maps with choke points. Two months after launch, TF1 had 18 large maps. So after this DLC, we will have 9 small maps with choke points and 1 possibly good map (see #2). Just as a good will gesture, the first DLC should have had at least 6 new maps in it to at least get it up to where TF1 started.

    2) Angel City was an awesome map and definitive of TF1. I was looking forward to this partly because I believed it would be a great comparator between TF1 and TF2, because it would really reveal how the game has changed and allow people to even make side by side videos showing the differences. But that was considering they would include Angel City exactly as it was. I am not liking the sound of "reborn for Titanfall 2". I fear they have modified it, shrunk it down, and made significant enough changes to it that we won't be able to get that apples to apples comparison. If that is the case, I believe that was intentional, because they would not want it to reveal what a downgrade TF2 was. I hope I am wrong about this, because it will be very sad and sneaky if they did not include the map exactly as it was in TF1.

    3) I'm sorry, but until you are going to allow completely customizable titan loadouts, talk to the hand. That is the single largest barrier preventing this from possibly being a great game. This should be the #1 priority.

    Derrame is right. I know a lot of people would really like this.

    Even 3 TF1 maps would be great!

    Nice whoisdo!

    I'm so looking forward to Angel City. I know its only one map but there are some tweaks to a lot of other stuff too

    https://www.titanfall.com/en_us/news/frontier-news-network-2/

    I hope this is the first in a long line of dlc's, refining, adding and balancing the game. Obviously there are issues but its positive that Respawn are going to constantly support the game:

    "Angel City’s Most Wanted is just the beginning of our support for Titanfall 2. We will have more drops that will differ in size and scope but the additional maps, modes, and weapons available will continue to be free."
