Titanfall on Xbox 360 gets Expedition DLC in June

New, 4 comments

The Xbox 360 version of Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment's first-person shooter, will receive Expedition DLC in June, according to the game's official site, further confirming Bluepoint Games partnership with Respawn to support the platform.

Bluepoint will provide ongoing updates and improvements to the Xbox 360 that will follow behind similar updates for the Windows PC and Xbox One releases, including free enhancements to Private Matches and future paid DLC.

"This timing difference is due to the same reasons that more time was needed to finish Titanfall for the Xbox 360," the post reads. "Respawn must first finish their additions and improvements for the Xbox One and PC, and afterwards Bluepoint can then grab the latest and update the Xbox 360 version. We're working with Respawn and Bluepoint to streamline the process and close the gap, allowing Xbox 360 updates to be published as closely as possible to Respawn's updates."

Bluepoint is currently focusing on the Expedition DLC and changes included in Xbox One's Content Update 2. The developer is working on the content update in two parts, with the update to the Gooser challenge recently set live and the rest of the changes becoming available soon.

Bluepoint Games senior producer Daryl Allison announced in April that the Xbox 360 release will be a "true experience" on the platform and include all content from the Xbox One and Windows PC versions. According to the producer, Bluepoint aimed to make the Xbox 360 game as good as the other versions but hardware differences limited the framerate to more than 30 frames per second, rather than 60.

The title's first DLC launches this month for Xbox One and Windows PC. Expedition DLC's story takes place after the multiplayer campaign and features Runoff and two other maps. "Swampland" is set among the ruins of "archaic alien technology" and features trees for wall running. The third map called "War Games" is based in the game's training simulator.

Additional free Titanfall updates planned for the game include new burn cards and multiplayer modes. Respawn is also researching removing the HUD for video capture, allow players to pair up using social media hashtags, customizable titans, along with competitive rankings and daily challenges.

The Xbox 360 edition was originally slated for a March release and was delayed to April 8. Titanfall launched on Windows PC and Xbox One March 11. For more on the game, read our review.
