Titanfall's first map pack, titled Expedition, is set to hit this month. Respawn has already explained how War Games will emphasize wall-running, and now a new video and blog post has shared more detail on the forested Swampland map.
The post from Swampland level designer Chris Dionne explains that Swampland was an older map that had been shelved in favor of other designs. The early versions featured IMC buildings and temples, but he says it lacked its own personality. When redesigning it, he says, it became clear that the redwoods needed to be the major emphasis of the environment instead, so he made the forest denser in the center for traversal. The results can be seen in the video below.

Chris Dionne, the level designer behind the Swampland map in the upcoming Titanfall "Expedition" expansion, explains how the map died and was later revived by focusing on its unique aspects.
