It's been almost a year since "#Titanfall 2" made its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and since then, Respawn Entertainment has made sure to release new content and support the game. Just this August, the studio released the "#Postcards from the Frontier" DLC absolutely free, featuring several new maps and new elite weapon warpaints. The recently-released DLC also included new maps for the Frontier Defense co-op mode that was also added to the game in July. In celebration of the newly released DLC, Respawn Entertainment is holding a #double XP weekend that runs from September 1 to 5. The announcement was made via the official "Titanfall 2" Twitter account, which can be seen below.

'Postcards from the Frontier' DLC features new maps

The recently released "Postcards from the Frontier" DLC for "Titanfall 2" features a new map called Uma, which features "tight corridors" in three arenas "flanked by balconies, doorways, and windows"—a claustrophobic's worst nightmare. It also has a large central divider for those who want to shoot short range. Meanwhile, the DLC also has several maps for the Frontier Defense, including the Exoplanet, Drydock, and Angel City. Players can also get their hands on new elite weapon warpaints that feature some gameplay bonuses. According to Gamespot, those who get one to three skins will get 10% chance of earning double XP token when matches conclude. These new elite weapon warpaints also enables players and their teammatest to get extra merit upon completing a match.

Each warpaint comes with a $4.99 price tag, or players can eight all at once for $24.99, promo valid until September 26.

Free DLC offers new modes

Aside from maps and weapons, the "Postcards from the Frontier" DLC for "Titanfall 2" also includes two new modes called "Aegis Titan Brawl" and "Aegis Last Titan Standing," both of which have basically the same original rules, except that players will play using Aegis upgraded Titans from the Frontier Defense.

Respawn insists the game sold well despite sales numbers

"Titanfall 2" was met with generally positive reviews from players and critics alike when it was released in October 2016. However, this didn't translate well into sales and Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella recogizes this, saying it was a "rough window to launch" the game, as per Gamespot. Nonetheless, the studio is hopeful that such double XP weekends like this would attract more players who may have missed out on the game and get a chance to enjoy it this time around.
