One map, titled War Games, will take inspiration from existing Titanfall maps Airbase Sierra, Rise, and Angel City. Designer, Jason McCord, described it as a "parkour playground."

Titanfall, released March 11, has uniquely incorporated parkour into its gameplay. In fact, mastering the technique can be crucial to success in the game.

To those unfamiliar with the term, parkour is an activity reserved primarily for people with Spider-Man like nimbleness which is used to scale walls and traverse obstacles Thankfully, gamers who lack the body of an Olympian can still pull off some of the more impressive parkour tricks in-game instead.

Despite the unique experience, Titanfall is not the first videogame to incorporate parkour into its gameplay. Mirror's Edge and the Assassin's Creed series are also well known for their parkour elements.

With no exact date scheduled for release, fans are encouraged to keep tabs on Titanfall Expedition throughout this month for the first chance to experience this upcoming content.
