Meet Titanfall's Interstellar Manufacturing CorporationJohn Llewellyn Martin |
A post on the official Titanfall website gives us a bit of an introduction to the IMC, providing background information on the faction as well as some of its key members. The IMC is responsible for acquiring and manufacturing material conveniences and products used by the Core Systems, so it's within the best interests of the company to maximize their profits by getting everything they can in the Frontier, even if it means using force.
Some of the key members of the IMC are listed below:
Graves is known as the CINCFRONT, or Commander-in-Chief, Frontier Command. This basically means he's in charge and, despite his fancy title, he leads with a rather informal style of command. In fact, he's known as a maverick within the IMC. This is one roughneck we're looking forward to meeting.
Blisk is a mercenary from South Africa and provides Combat Intel and Counterinsurgency services for the IMC. Even though he made enough money to retire after his first contract with the IMC, he found that the pay was just too good and opted to renew. According to his short bio, he was excited at "the opportunity to lay waste to everything in sight with state-of-the-art hardware." Yikes.
Then we have Spyglass, which is described as "a physical manifestation of IMC's vast computational network identity, handling logistics, navigation, deployment, and communications between all IMC forces on the Frontier." These units often accompany ground forces and provide them with intel. Also, they look pretty damn cool.
Look out for these guys and the rest of the IMC when Titanfall is released on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 11.
