Gaming news round-up: Call of Duty announcements, Dishonored 2 release date and Respawn's Star Wars game

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment treated "Titanfall 2" fans with the reveal of the next free DLC for the shooter. Its called "A Glitch in the Frontier" and is expected to go live on April 25, 2017. It seems that the developers did not want to keep more details away from its players as they also include a video trailer for new expansion. Sources believe that the trailer will showcase some of the new stuff available when it arrives.

Reports claim that the teaser trailer for "A Glitch in the Frontier" teases "Titanfall 2" gamers with two new maps, a new faction, new game modes and possibly more. The developers also revealed that the map was apparently "inspired by Captain Lastimosa's home planet of Harmony," as reported by Game Rant. The new map will also be "medium-sized" and comes with the second arena called Deck, which was added for the new Live Fire game mode.

The new faction added to "Titanfall 2" is known as MRVN, which seems to be connected to the in-game MARVIN automated assistants. "A Glitch in the Frontier" also features a game mode called Marked for Death, which was taken from the first game in the series. The update will also reportedly increase the level cap to 100, a new pulse blade execution, an option to add Live Fire mode to Private Match, and makes it possible to choose between Regular and Prime executions for Titans.

The "A Glitch in the Frontier" details and release date announcement caught a lot of "Titanfall 2" fans by surprise. The information was reportedly announced just a day after the developers shared their expansion plans for this year. It appears that the post-launch roadmap for this year is filled with both paid and free DLC that gives players access to new Titans and cosmetic upgrades.

After the developer's announcement of "A Glitch in the Frontier," fans of "Titanfall 2" have reportedly felt pleased about the game's post-launch support. The strategy appeared to resonate well with the gaming community that EA even announced that "Star Wars Battlefront 2" will not have a season pass this time. They even included a split-screen co-op mode, which was one of the most requested features from gamers, reports Gamenguide.
