New images of all 15 Titanfall maps have been leaked, showing a top-down view of each gaming arena. The source has also detailed a new game mode and provided details of the single player campaign.
New top-down images of Titanfall maps show the scale of the game.
The new images come from Reddit user FallenFusion
and they reveal the full layout of each of Titanfall's 15 maps and include screenshots of highlighted areas.
As previously revealed
, the 15 maps will include environments that incorporate coastline, deserts, cityscapes, a large skyscraper and even giant animal bones. What these new images also reveal is that the maps will, in keeping with the general philosophy of the game, all be relatively compact, making for intense close-quarters combat rather than the larger-scale warfare of the likes of Battlefield 4.
Also revealed in these leaks is that some of the maps will include features such as a zip line and turrets, making the maps more interactive.
Players will also be able to reset their XP progress with the Generations feature, which sees players 'reborn' as part of a second generation of Pilot. This puts players' XP and all rewards - except Burn Cards - back to zero but they will earn XP at a 10% higher rate. With up to 10 generations on offer, the rate of increase will go up with each generation. Players that choose to do this will also have a marker put on their avatar to let other players know that they're a 2nd, 3rd... generation player.
The campaign mode will apparently be a "completely new experience” but based around the same combat modes as the multi-player mode, with nine different matches - five rounds of Attrition (team deathmatch), and four of Hardpoint - with both Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation and Militia playable.
A new game mode, called Pilot Hunter, has also been revealed. As its name suggests the whole emphasis is on killing enemy Pilots (i.e. non-AI players) with no points awarded for taking down AI opponents, though the latter does lower the time to earn Titans and regenerate the Titan core ability.
Titanfall is set to be one of the big multi-player FPS titles of the new console generation, with its exclusive availability on the Xbox One and PC being seen as a key fillip in Microsoft's fight to grab market share from the PS4. The release date of the game is 11 March in the US and 13 March in the EU.
