The final map included in the IMC Rising DLC pack has finally been revealed by Respawn, and will go under the title of Sand Trap.
It will be joined by the previously detailed maps Blackwater and Zone 18 , in the third and final DLC for Titanfall, IMC Rising. For those of you on the fence about picking up the DLC, gameplay of it will be streamed on Twitch on September 23, just ahead of the pack’s release this autumn.
Chris Donne, the game designer over at Respawn, had this to say;
“One of my main goals with Sand Trap was to use old ideas in new ways. In the center is a buried bunker inspired by the buried architecture in Fracture; this lets Titans stomp around above while pilots scurry below. Across the map are deep trenches that create a well-run highway for pilots; inspired by wall running in Rise they give quick and (relatively) safe routes across the map.
“But a new map is also a chance to create different (and hopefully exciting) gameplay. By having a trench network that pilots can use to cross the level, the surface can be left very sparse. This lets Titans dominate on the dunes and creates interesting battles as they crest the hills, often lining up to rain down death on the other side. Pilots shouldn’t have it too easy though, so the trenches have an open bottom that drops into reservoirs of unrefined fuel – instant death by goo!”
