Titanfall Will Add Paid DLC -- And A Season Pass To Get It All

Titanfall Will Add Paid DLC -- and a Season Pass to Get It All

Titanfall will get both free and paid downloadable content. The latter will be available through a season pass subscription, Respawn Entertainment's co-founder said yesterday in an interview with GameSpot.

The plans for post-release content for Titanfall had been unclear until Zampella laid down the details yesterday. "We're going to do paid DLC, we're also going to do free updates," he said in this video interview on GameSpot. "There are things that we want in the game that we didn't get to ship in the final game. So we'll add private matches and things like that for free."

For the paid stuff, Zampella was direct: "We're not going to do microtransactions." The reason for a season pass, which hardcore gaming forums always view with suspicion, is "if you buy it up front, it's a deal," Zampella said.

That said, questioned about the post-release support for the Xbox 360 version, which arrives two weeks after the PC and Xbox One launch, Zampella was less clear. "We'll have to sit down with EA and talk about that. My assumption is yes, but I don't know if I'm the best person to speak for that." Bluepoint Games is handling that version of Titanfall.

    Is anybody surprised by this?

      No not surprised at all. It is also nice to see that EA and Microsoft are rushing to supply us information concerning when the local servers will go live. Happy to take our money but keep us in the dark regarding a service 90% of the rest of the Titanfall community receives at launch.

      I have to laugh that we keep rewarding these company's for giving us sub-par products.

        Normally I'd agree with you, but the Singapore servers on PC were fast and stable. I didn't get any more lag than on say TF2.

          Sure they were fast and stable when fighting AI's wasn't that way when fighting other pilots on much lower pings. Also remember that we were only playing with a extremely small amount of players in the beta. Wait until the flood gates open to all the players and we can talk then about the performance then.

            Except the beta did go completely open for the last 2-3 days...

              Remember there was only around 2 million player in total played the Beta worldwide. So thinking about it what percentage of them were from the APAC region? Maybe 1% or 2% of the actual player base?

          As good as the net code was (and as fun as the game is), I found that once I got some skill in the game, even the Ping of 150 put me at a serious disadvantage in a lot of rounds (though I actually many of them using the shotgun judiciously). For one thing, sniper rifles were completely unusable, and I also found myself getting sniped across the map from behind cover (confirmed by kill cam). Again, the game is fun, but it definitely wasn't even.

      Announcement of DLC's before a game is even released? No......no I am not surprised in the least.

        You mean announced less then 1 week away from launch where all development of the game would have been finished 3-4 weeks ago because it has to sent for certification and then into production and then shipped before the release date? Where these developers are just supposed to twiddle their thumbs for that month while they wait for launch and then announce plans?

          When EA is involved you really shouldn't get so defensive, I might think your my girlfriend.

          I was taking a dig at EA dude, so while I applaud the upper body strength it took to get your high horse all they way up that emerald tower, suck it up princess, I wasn't bad mouthing your precious game geez

      That was my first reaction when reading the headline: "Really? Shit... I didn't see this one coming... I mean, how can this be for a game made in 2014?"

    wow DLC in a modern game. that's surprising news...

    Y'know... this looks great but after going through the BF4 launch, no thanks. Not giving them my money again. Just not worth it in any way.

      Did you play the beta you dildo?
      It worked almost perfectly

        No I didn't you dildo. And that has nothing to do with why I'm not going to buy it. Which is pretty clear from my comment, which you replied to so I know you read it. So you mustn't be very bright as you obviously didn't understand it. :(

        I am not going to give my money to a company that continues to release broken games. Sim City and then BF4 were it for me. Never again.

    Sure, have them. That's not an issue at all, but for the love of god don't overprice the hell out of them!

    Screw this. Let me just have the full game when I pay full price.
    DLC can be, you know, content developed to give the customers some extra value *after* the game is finished. Milk Milk Milk

      Spot on! Remember when stuff would get released for free months later with updates to keep people playing?

    “There are things that we want in the game that we didn’t get to ship in the final game."

    jesus christ

    Im still on the fence about this one, maybe if they throw in micro transactions I will pick it up.
