Mod tools won't be available for PC version of Titanfall

At least not at launch, Respawn confirms.

Respawn Entertainment will not make mod tools available for the PC version of Titanfall, at least not at launch, cofounder Vince Zampella has confirmed on Twitter.

"Not at launch for sure," Zampella told a fan who asked about the possibility of the mod/mapping tools being available on PC. "Will have to evaluate after launch."

Titanfall, created by numerous former Call of Duty developers, launches on March 11, 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. The game is never coming to PlayStation or Nintendo platforms, but sequels could. Respawn is "definitely" thinking about a beta for Titanfall, though details are not available.

Respawn recently confirmed that Titanfall is distancing itself from popular FPS tropes by making quick- and no-scoping ineffective. "Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it's a pretty different animal than you'll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter," Respawn said.

I like how that idiot just said modding is cheating. Console noob detected. I bet making Skyrim, Fallout, and other games more difficult, filled with more content, etc is cheating right? Lol idiot

EA=Garbage. And if somehow this game turns out to be actually good; Best to buy the PC version.

PC "gamers" crying over no mod tools... Haha, ah well looks like you'll have to use actual skill in a game for once rather than cheat your way to the top...

I would expect modding to be completely non-existent in this game considering its only multiplayer and has no SP campaign I mean unless they want rampant wonton cheating in the PC version where ppl use aim bots willy nilly and they have players regularly using god mode or teleporting and the like. Yea I just don't see mods working for an MP only game it'd just make it unplayable.

If this game gets a rating of 9.0 then I'll get this game or else I won't even bother with it.


I am fed up with all this team based games. Just give us some good single player games , but I guess they can't milk us enough with SP as they can with MP.

Mod tools makes PC MASTER RACE! Example: Skyrim Console VS Skyrim PC

Why am I not surprised? As a mod maker myself I'm getting increasingly concerned with this trend of "no more mod tools because mod tools = haxing." I've made mods for pretty much every video game I played that has mod tools.

No "quick scoping" "no scoping" "mods" .why the heck they are even releasing the game?

Eh, I wouldn't call that a big deal, it will still have the most graphical features on PC, and people will likely mod it with or without tools.  In fact, the majority of PC games release without mod tools, yet many of them receive modder treatment.

Oh, there will be a beta. I believe it launches on March 11.

It's EA. So it won't have mod tools EVER. This is Battlefield 3 all over again. Dice said "yeah maybe we'll have mod tools" before launch. But because it would likely kill a couple of copies sold if they flat out denied that there would ever be mod tools, they just kept it vague until the game was out. Anyone thinking that Titanfall will ever have mod tools, is clearly ignorant.

That is probably not a bad idea at start. Cuts down on cheaters and such.

Or you could be mature about it and wait a few weeks to see what reviews say and if their are any major bugs.

I do agree though about trying mods after you have finished and seen all/most of a unmodded game. But whats wrong with people making a mod for it, they will just have to wait for other people to use it xD

Don't you know? Everyone on pc pirates, nobody spends money for games on pc. I mean we've only crow funded thousands of games and made the impossible possible, hell if it wasn't for us then a lot of great games wouldn't see the light of day, but most companies only focus on the negatives of pc gamers and not the positives.

@dethtrain  Hear that man, kinda shocked to see the game's only launching with 15 maps (UT3's Titan Pack had 11 and that was free), but by the sounds of it, with the Season Pass already announced, it looks like a cash cow deal, you know, milk the audience in the short term and release a game with no longevity, and yet some people have praised it because the Season Pass is cheaper than others.


I love mapping and modding, I think it adds a new level of community and choice to these kinds of games and can vastly expand a games lifespan, and if people don't like it they could always play on an official server or setup a server of their own. I was expecting it (considering that the engine in question is so mod friendly) but once again corporate greed wins over actually giving back to the consumer and the community. I have a feeling any attempt at 'unofficial' mod tools will be violently silenced (because then they couldn't charge extortionate amounts for DLC).


With map tools this game was going to be a day one buy, without, I dunno, if there's a sale in the future I'll consider it.

That's like saying it's got to be fucked up to drive a Lamborghini, it's got engine problems! lol. Yeah enjoy your Ford Focus without any problems while us PC gamers feast on the best stuff. I'll take that kind of "problem" any day lol.

so what you are saying is community created maps and content is somehow bad?


grow up and stop trying to out-do other people.

Im pretty sure most PC gamers were not expecting mods for this as they are very rare for multiplayer shooters on PC, at least I was not expecting any. I see this as GOOD news since it means that mods MAY come in the future, so im not crying I am smileing.


Also, It is clear you know nothing about PC gaming or modding. If there was a "top" or ladder (i.e. BF4 divisions) then you would have to play on "ranked" servers which don't allow mods, so modders have never cheated their way to the top.  If you are talking top of the leaderboard in an individual map then I laugh at your short sitedness as well and it is still clear you dont know what modding is.


Mods are not cheats they modify game play, most mods add additional elements that were not in the game previously. I am not a fan of mods in FPS as most are things like WC3 or extra power mods, which grant ALL players on the server to extra powers. All players are on a equal playing field since they can all access the same powers.


Mod =/= cheats/hacks; good job at showing your clear unwarrent bias towards consoles as well as your complete ignorance of the subject matter you posted about.

@Marky360 Mods are great for adding new creative levels and items. They add tons of replay value to games as well. I'm not sure why so many people seem to equate modding with cheating but that's not at all what it's really about. Besides idots who are going to cheat don't need official mod tools to do it.

@Marky360  mods have nothing to do with cheating, mods are modifying a game for everyone who plays it. Most of the successful multiplayer games on Steam - Dota, Counter-Strike, Team Fortress and DayZ all started as mods.

I agree, but unfortunately, for every dollar I see donated, I see about three torrented $10 indies.

@sadface1234 I felt the same way as far as not expecting mod tools at the release of a purely multiplayer fps game. Once they see all the awesome levels and things that modders build on their own I'm sure they will release the official tools.
