Throw down your Titan Sentries, hold off on those Spicy Bois, and stop the Bambooziling because here are is everything you need to know about the imminent update named Operation Frontier Shield.

First up, it’s the trailer which would even make Michael Bay excited. Let’s watch.

Frontier Defence:

  • We’ll be showing more of Frontier Defense in an upcoming tutorial video around launch.

Remastered Map: Rise

Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.

Live Fire Map: Township

A new modular construction of a residential firefight. Cover is sparse for Pilots bold enough to leave the safety of a few houses. Windows and rooftops decide who controls the map, but dense interiors can always hold surprises.


In this DLC we’ll be introducing new Elite Warpaints for weapons and Titans that you can buy. These will not only look awesome but also provide XP Boosts. Let’s break them down:


Each Elite Weapon Warpaint below will give you a chance for double xp just for you and a merit boost for you and your team. These must be owned but do not have to be equipped to earn the boost. They also look pretty awesome. You’ll also be able to purchase these in a bundle for a limited time [bundle sale ends 8.28.2017]

 R-201 CARBINE “UNDERGROUND”Image_09_r201
 ARCHER “PHANTOM”Image_10_archer
 B3 WINGMAN “AQUA FADE”Image_11_wingman


Each skin will give you and your team an XP boost for Frontier Defense and this boost is stackable. The skin will also have a shoulder piece on the upper arm that will upgrade visually when you complete each difficulty in Frontier Defense.



The warpaints for Titans will be available to buy until 8.28.2017. After that they are gone forever so don’t miss out!


On July 28th through the 30th we will be hosting another free trial for Titanfall 2 on all platforms. You will have access to the training gauntlet, the single player mission, The Beacon, and full access to multiplayer during this time. If you want to get a head start you can download the demo version of Titanfall 2 right now and play training and The Beacon in the meantime and you’ll be good to go when we flip on multiplayer on the 28th.


Titanfall Assault is a real-time strategy game based in the Titanfall universe being developed in partnership with Particle City and Nexon for mobile. We’ve been running betas in a number of regions this summer and later this week we are going to start talking more about the game and showing it in action soon. It’s shaping up really nicely and we think you guys will dig it.

The update releases on Xbox One, PS4, and PC next Tuesday 25th of July. Titanfall 2 is also coming to both EA Access, and Origin Access soon.
