Prepare for Titanfall 2, as a bevy of new content will be making its way to the hit sequel next week that is sure to keep players busy.

Per its official blog page, Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Colony Reborn, the latest downloadable content for the game, will be arriving on March 30th.

The big focus of this new DLC pack is a new map called Colony, which will be immediately familiar with long-time Titanfall fans, as it comes straight from the original game. “Set among a sleepy settler town, the dense center is filled with narrow streets, interiors and rooftops surrounded by open Titan lanes,” the company noted with the map description.

Colony Reborn will also introduce a new weapon into the mix, the R-101. “Universally well regarded for its unique versatility, the R-101 platform has been a mainstay of human conflict since the first settlers arrived from the Core Systems. This version is outfitted with an ACOG scope.”

There’s also a new execution called the Curb Check, in which a pilot can launch an adversary into the air, and then drag them back down to the earth with a mighty head slam. It’s really impressive.

In addition, various pieces of paid cosmetic content will be introduced, including two new Prime Titan designs (Northstar and Legion); new pieces of Titan Art Nose Art (including five new deesigns and a Warpaint per Titan); a camo pack featuring 20 different camos to choose from; and a Callsign pack that includes 20 different banners and patches. Pricing hasn’t been noted on these items yet, but we should know how much by next week.

As a bonus, Respawn Entertainment will also be offering up another Free Trial weekend for Titanfall 2, kicking off on March 30th and running through April 3rd. Players will have full access to multiplayer during this period, as well as the training gauntlet and the single player mission The Beacon. It’s a great way to get oriented with the game before you jump in for a purchase. You’ll also be able to earn Double XP for all modes over the course of the weekend as well.

Check out the new Colony Reborn trailer below, and check out Titanfall 2 now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
