On top of Titans and pilots, DLC may allow players to fight monsters in Titanfall, Respawn’s community manager Abbie Heppe has said.
When questioned about the possiblity of the creatures featured in Titanfall’s concept art book appearing as game elements, Heppe noted that it was something being considered for DLC.
We are going to have maps added, and we’re trying to give players as much of a varied look at things as we can so that is definitely a possibility
The backgrounds of some Titanfall maps have included some of these humongous creatures but up until now they’ve been eye candy, with no indication that this would change.
Players may be fighting monsters soon, but for the time being, they won’t be facing up against any new Titans, Heppe added. The issue with adding a new asset for players, she said, was that the Titans have a massive impact on the game, and therefore have to be carefully honed in terms of balance.
It’s a huge undertaking. Originally we just had the Atlas titans and then the team refused to add in the rest of the Titans until we were all sure that that one fitted perfectly with everything else in the game, so… I’m not announcing any new Titans right now
