There's a mix of free and paid content out now for Titanfall 2. On the free side, Monarch's Reign introduces a new Titan, Monarch, as the 7th playable Titan in the game. It also brings back the classic Relic map from the original game and adds a new cloaked execution and some banners. Really, all the best stuff is free, which I love to see from ReSpawn. Titanfall is such a great multiplayer experience and the devs make an effort not to split the multiplaying community behind a paywall. However, if you want to show them some extra love, there are a ton of cosmetic items for purchase on the paid side of the DLC. There are new Prime versions of the Ronan and Tone titans, 20 new camos, 20 new callsigns, 20 new patches, and new nose art and warpaint. There's also new matchmaking and game balancing improvements and some bug fixes.
Full details from the update can be found in the patch notes. The gameplay trailer for the Monarch's Reign DLC is below with the press release after that.
Get ready to roll out the red carpet for the latest DLC pack coming to Titanfall 2: Monarch’s Reign. This DLC features the addition of the 7th multiplayer Titan: Monarch, the IMC’s attempt to reverse-engineer the Militia's Vanguard-class Titan with a decided focus on flexibility through survival and support options. The Monarch is unlike any other Titan and features a unique Upgrade Core, which allows her to improve her combat abilities during a battle based on options set by her Pilot. Monarch also has an impressive ability to draw power from enemy Titans to recharge her own shields, or the shields of her friendly Titans.
Monarch’s Reign also brings the return of Relic; a classic map from Titanfall set among the old wreck of the IMC carrier IMS Odyssey. This remastered map features a worksite where Pilots have created clever wall running routes by hanging pieces of the wreckage between buildings.
The Monarch’s Reign DLC pack also brings new cosmetic items for purchase, including the debut of Ronin Prime and Tone Prime. Ronin Prime charges the field with a samurai-inspired aesthetic including a visual-upgrade for his sword so he may more stylishly pierce the heavens (and enemy Titans). As the cherry blossoms fall across the battlefield, don’t forget to check out the Monarch’s Reign Camo Pack, inspired by World War 2 “dazzle camouflage” with broad patterns and striking colors to keep your opponent guessing. New Art Packs are now available for each Titan, as well as a new Callsign Pack.
