Respawn Entertainment have released a trailer for the latest Titanfall 2 DLC, Monarch’s Reign, showcasing the additions we can expect. The new DLC adds a free titan, two paid ones, a new map, a new execution and several cosmetic items. It’s going to be released on May 30th across all platforms.
The Monarch is a mid range Vanguard titan that can be upgraded during matches. There are several upgrade trees to choose from, making it somewhat customizable. It sounds like you’ll be able to develop it to suit the current needs of your team. They also have an ability that lets them recharge their shields by draining enemy titans. Here’s the Monarch’s backstory:
Monarch’s design is based on the salvaged, badly burnt remains of two Vanguard-class Titans recovered by the IMC from the Battle of Typhon. While the Vanguard-class was designed by the Militia for armed recon deep behind enemy lines, the IMC’s mandate for Monarch focused on flexibility through survival and support options, to serve many operational roles.
Ronin and Tone are the new prime (paid) titans. The former uses a katana and can turn invisible, while the latter has a gun with a bayonet. The new map they’re adding is actually a remaster of a popular map from the first game, called Relic. It’s a town separated in half by an IMC wreckage.
They’ve also improved the Crashsite map, fixing various sticking points and bugs, as well as adding eight new ziplines and some wallrunning locations. The new execution sees a cloaked player sneak behing someone, only to uncloak and stab them in the face. Paid-for cosmetic items you can expect include camos, callsigns and nose art. Once the DLC hits the airwaves, players will get double XP for all modes for a while, and Titan Brawl will be coming back as the featured mode.
