Titanfall details explain the story behind the Frontier Militia

Respawn Entertainment has released details on the Frontier Militia, one of the factions engaged in the central conflict in its upcoming Xbox One shooter Titanfall.

Frontier Militia is described as "a loosely governed mishmash of homesteaders, bandits, mercenaries, and pirates, all rising up as 'citizen soldiers' when the need arises". The group represents military arm of the Frontier systems' territorial defense pact, and its members have adopted it 'can't beat 'em, join 'em' approach to working with the criminal element.

Although the members of the Frontier Militia might not always get on with each other, they are united in their battle against the IMC's exploitation of the Frontier.

The group is split into different Brigades, with each Brigade responsible for fighting in an assigned section of Frontier territory. Territory can be expansive as several planetary systems. Although the brigades "are little more than vast pirate organizations" they still have enough resources to pose a genuine threat to the IMC.

The official Titanfall website also profiles three key members of the Frontier Militia:
