Respawn Entertainment has revealed screenshots and details about Zone 18, one of the maps included in it's upcoming Titanfall DLC, IMC Rising.
Zone 18, according to the game's fiction, is an old IMC base hidden in the wilderness of the Dakota system, where IMC Robotics continues its research after the destruction of the Hammond Robotics' corporate headquarters on the Frontier (the last campaign mission in the main game).
On the game's official site, Respawn's Geoff Smith says it's a fast-paced environment with two main section divided by a central supply path. Pilots can either navigate it under the cover of the facility's interior passages, or take advantage of the long sightlines provided by the limited rooftop cover outside.
"Thematically, I wanted to make something that would be less 'noisy' and let players spot other pilots quickly," Smith said. "With Hammond Robotics working on a new Spectre model in the high-tech underground sections of Zone 18, the base above is neglected and overgrown as camouflage against enemy aerial and satellite reconnaissance."
Respawn previously revealed another map included in the latest DLC, Backwater, which is set in a hidden bootlegging colony. Respawn has yet to reveal details about the third map included in IMC Rising, Sandtrap, but we should hear more about it before it releases this fall.
Respawn also recently revealed numerous other improvements, additions, and tweaks included in the game's sixth major update that you can find here. They include colorblind support, as well as the option to buy Burn Cards from the Black Market.
