Meet Titanfall IMC Faction, the ‘Sprawling Commercial Empire’

By   /   2 years ago

Titanfall releases in a month’s time, but while you wait, let’s meet the next faction in the game. Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation, the Titanfall IMC faction has been introduced by the official website of the game recently.

Something that started out as an extraction company has now become an exploitative commercial empire that is a major contender in the battlefield. “Legal application of force” is a norm with them where and when necessary. This of course is pretty often as they go up against Militia, the civilian army of the Frontier and the second faction players can choose.

The Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation, or IMC, started out small, in natural resource extraction industries, under the name Hammond Engineering. Fifteen years later, demand for Titan manufacturing materials, combined with Hammond’s market-cornering planetary survey technology and map database rights, contributed to explosive growth for the company.

Over the course of a century, a series of acquisitions, mergers, and re-brandings lead to the transformation of Hammond Engineering into the sprawling commercial empire that is the IMC.

Three characters (see images below) from within Titanfall IMC faction were also detailed. We have Vice Admiral Graves the Commander in Chief of Frontier Command (CINCFRONT). He lack traditional protocol, and will appear to be notorious for objective completion.

Next on the list is a South African mercenary named Blisk. He is under a long-term contract with IMC and handles the combat Intel and counterinsurgency aspects of the Frontier. He has enough money to retire, but it is his addiction to destruction and state of the art hardware that has made him renew his contract.

The last character revealed is Spyglass, a robotic figure who is the “physical manifestation of the IMC’s vast computational network identity, handling logistics, navigation, deployment, and communications” for all the forces of IMC.

How did you like Titanfall IMC Faction? The game makes the drop on March 11 for North America on Xbox One and PC.
