Titanfall DLC in planning stages, could "evolve" with players

What post-launch content could be in store for Respawn's upcoming Xbox One, 360, and PC FPS?

by

EA executives have spoken about their plans to monetise Titanfall digitally--as in, release post-launch DLC for the game--but added that these plans could "evolve over time" alongside the game's playerbase.

"We're planning extra content already for the product," said EA CEO Andrew Wilson when asked about the company's plans for digital monetisation in Titanfall, "but in the nature of the live service, I think that, that will evolve over time as we see how the player base evolves through the year."

Wilson was speaking as part of EA's Q3 financial call, which took place last night, where Titanfall was a hot topic.

Respawn Entertainment has already ruled out microtransactions for the game, which means, for better or worse, nobody is going to be running about shooting Titans with an assault rifle wrapped in bacon.

Elsewhere in the call, chief operating officer Peter Moore said that EA is yet to discuss its Titanfall plans in full. "We haven't talked at detail about our Titanfall digital strategy," he said, "but you're very familiar already, obviously, with Battlefield 4 Premium. We expect that to be incredibly strong for us as is Battlefield 4 typically as a catalogue title itself. Once we announce Titanfall [digital plans], obviously, you'll have a better understanding what our digital strategy is."

Titanfall will be released for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on March 11.

UI means very little. Aside from parkouring around and giant robots, the game looks to play exactly like COD.

Yeah, and this is what will kill the game. I was excited about this game until I remembered who was publishing it. I think, "Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, SimCity, SWToR, Battlefield 4, Dead Space 3.... Why do we think this game is going to be good again? Hasn't EA proven that they ruin any game they are involved in?" I bet you this game comes out rushed, buggy and with inferior net code.

Lastly, if you truly loved gaming you simply would not support EA. They are slowly but surely killing the industry and now you see other companies like Ubisoft following suit.

Joe Buck It doesn't take me dropping 60 dollars to see this is COD with mechs. Look at the shooting, the run animations, the 6v6 battles. Matthew Orlandini is right in saying that it's the Source engine, but it's painfully obvious Respawn took their old COD coding and tweaked it to function in the Source engine. And let's be honest, every shooter is the damn same at the end of the day. I'll never understand why people drop money on the essentially same game play year after year, franchise after franchise. But then it occurs to me that most of you are children, you don't know the value of a dollar because mommy and daddy buy your games. You haven't gamed as long as I have so you aren't awaiting something new and innovative to take your interest.

It's SOURCE engine you morons, SOURCE. Not even the new SOURCE, but the OLD SOURCE.

Titanfall is not running on the Source 2 engine you fool, just an updated Source 1 engine.

Double dipping much? I still find it ironic that EA is selling the first Source 2 game.

You morons saying they hate EA, yea the company is very lackluster, but they don't make the games. They just publish. That's it.

I think it's more about people wanting to experience games properly and form their own opinion instead of needlessly hating on something they've never tried..

It's not that hard to run a "WHERE" statement.

Ppl bashing this game when it won the most awards this year and people that played it played 6v6 and reviewed it as one of the best games they've ever played. Their is online story mode before you get into matches. I'm sick of you idiots that call yourselves gamers saying a game is good or not when you've never even had hands on time with the game. Btw stop calling it xbone.. It wasn't cool 5 monthes ago and it's not cool now. You sound dumb

If it was on ps4(probanle pc.version ldt by xbone capabilitys most likely) none of this micro xaction bs would happen it would have an offline campaign anf be alot cheaper in the long run to play online if you chose to

Halo is nice, sir. I prefer the early one's but Halo I like. I hope Bungie nails it with Destiny and bring in some fresh ideas. As much as i like Halo, i don't want Destiny to be Halo mrk II. But I can't wait for it, my hopes are high !

Leonid Steiner

We don't how the game will be yet. But I too am really exited about Destiny. I'm getting that one ! Happy gaming !

I'm not negative. I'm curios about the game and willing to give it a chance. How's that negative ? And yes, Planetside is awsome !!!

The story is big motherfucking mechs want to kill each other. Sounds like a story to you Leong?

I have not played the game, so I don't know if it sucks or not. It might suck, it might be awesome, it might be mediocre. I don't know, you don't know. Only the one's that have tested the game know that. I'm reading about Titanfall cause i'd like to know more about it. You are wasting your time on something you've decided in advance not to like. who's the negative one here ?

Thomas Harrison

Thtat's why I haven't bought BF4. EA has ruined that franchise. They still haven't made one as good as what BF 2142 was.

" this game suck and still praise it kid get over it" Sounds negative to me. Happy gaming Sir.

Leonid Steiner

I understand that you're not interested. That's fine of course. Then read about the stuff you do like instead, why waste your time on stuff you don't like. There's so much negativity in gaming today. Go play some RGPshooter instead.

I'm not a kid and i'm not raging at all. I don't really get all the hype this game is getting, but at least i'm willing to test it. Just trying to understand why someone that's not interested in a game spend time commenting on it. Seems rather pointless. If I where you i'd rather spend time on games I liked instead of the games I don't like. Get the point ?
