Titanfall DLC, updates land on Xbox 360 only after Xbox One, PC

The Expedition DLC is coming to Xbox One and PC later this month, but Xbox 360 players will have to wait a little longer.

Xbox 360 owners had to wait a little longer for Titanfall’s release, and they’re going to have to wait longer for the Expedition DLC pack and free updates as well.

A post to Titanfall’s official website said that Bluepoint, the developer that created the Xbox 360 version of the game, will also work on all future updates. It also explained why updates for the Xbox 360 version will follow behind similar updates for the PC and Xbox One version.

“This timing difference is due to the same reasons that more time was needed to finish Titanfall for the Xbox 360,” publisher Electronic Arts explains. “Respawn must first finish their additions and improvements for the Xbox One and PC, and afterwards Bluepoint can then grab the latest and update the Xbox 360 version.”

At the moment, Bluepoint is working on bringing over the changes already made in the Xbox One and PC Content Update 2. Bluepoint will split the update into two parts, first tweaking the Gooser challenge (which was way too hard to complete in it’s original form), then the rest.

In recent weeks, Respawn has been sharing details about the three maps it’s adding to the game in the first DLC pack, War Games, Runoff, and Swampland. The DLC will be priced at $10, but gamers planning on picking up all three planned DLC packs can opt for a $25 season pass. The Expedition DLC is set to launch later this month.

Electronic Arts also recently announced a new deal that will see it publish new "Titanfall experiences" in the future.

wow, all I see is complaining, moaning, groaning and more reasons why the game sucks. To each their own and respect opinions and such, but seriously if the game is that horrendous, why is it a top selling game right now?


I've yet to have server issues, no boosters have played and I personally find this better than battlefield and COD. Smooth gameplay and I admit the bots could be more aggressive, but you get that aggressive gameplay when facing another player. The challenge is against another player, the bots are to help get your titan quicker. 


Honestly all I see is that gamers are to damn hard to satisfy and no matter what companies do, you all will never be happy until you get what you want. Companies will do what a majority of gamers want, apparently the few here who are not satisfied fall in the minority, those few that are never satisfied or always find something that needs to be better. Companies will never please those groups.

It shouldn't be a big surprise. As it's been proven before, it's not a bad thing.

I wish gamestop would edit the title. It's a little misleading

awesome, cant wait for the player base to get thinned out by those that get dlc and those that dont. Thanks for the legacy cod kiddies :)


oh and i love that even though they claim that its easier to make games on the old gens and that current gen is still 2 years from reaching its "potential" and developers get the hang of making games for them, but they can easily release dlc months earlier on the new consoles, CONTRADICT MUCH?!!! LIES LIES LIES LIES

haven't been able to play it on 360 for over a week cause their servers are jacked

I see the sony nerds still have no life and no games to play on the ps4, and still as jealous as ever of Titanfall. Why aren't you playing knack instead of trolling? Or that cool "game" with the flower? Yeah.

This sounds like a bunch of crap to push 360 users to get the Xbox1.

Can't wait for all the excuse-making, whining and crying from the xboners after titanfail 2 is released on the PS4 lol

Stopped playing it after two days at total of 6hrs in. Bad gameplay and horrible optimization. Unreal Tournament for the win.

This thing is still alive? Oh well, then it deserves a DLC.

Good luck to them and players supporting those DLCs.


Unfortunately my policy is not to support map packs for mods, especially if the mod isn't free and they forbid the use/creation of community content.

DLC already? The game JUST came out. I won't be buying it for the simple fact that it's too damn soon. Greedy bastards.

Yay more overpriced DLC for a multiplayer only boring game! Woo hoo!

Looking forward to these maps, and whatever else eventually comes.


Great Game : )

We need a new kind of game... Any ideas?...

Yes sir! How about a run and gun with jet packs and mechs?

Hallaluyah , music to my ears boy!

We can create the game and then only put half of it on the disc..

What's that now boy?

And release the other half after and make it look like we are supporting our new fans by creating stuff afterwards because we ran out of time to get it in the game. We charge extra. But they won't mind- they will love us for thinking about them

Wide eyed.

Son, why don't you leave this weekend free, we'll spend some time together on my yacht, just the family.

Cue frolicking with the bosses daughter, a sprightly game of touch football and a welcome to the family nod from the boss.

Sir, I want to marry your daughter and make a baybee with Herr... And l name it dlc.

This is just to try and get X1 an advantage in the console race any way it can, 360 is going to have more Titanfall players than X1 and PC combined so why would they not give it priority, it makes no sense to me.

There are only 3 million X1s confirmed sold and lots of PC gamers are turned off by Origin and would much rather have it on Steam so I'm guessing 360 has the majority of sales by a large margin.

Attention span of a puppy huh? Must suck to have low standards to go with it...go sign an online petition to get a game you'll never get a chance to uninstall.

@EFFZero You should read the right website. Maybe you won't be so misled?

That makes no sense. They already explained why. It's the same reason it was delayed the 1st time.

Yeah but right now it's you who are crying, wishing your PS4 was an Xbox One.

@quakke I agree. Boring. Bots make up way too much of the gameplay. It has good fluid movement but it seems very inconsistent. Accuracy is good one second but horrible the next. Customization/building is very lacking. I would think not spending time on a campaign they would but more into character customizations and unlocks/skins etc. Titan weapons are horrible.

I was REALLY looking forward to this game but it just bores me to tears. 

iammcgruber

@quakke Bad gameplay? I understand how the game could get boring quick, but to say the gameplay is bad is pretty odd. It plays very smooth and the parkour system works extremely well and easy to do. It's one of the more innovative shooters to come out in years with it's jetpacks and mechs. Hit detection is good and the mechs are easy and powerful to control, but not to powerful that they're OP'd. "Bad gameplay" just seems like your fishing for things to put this game down about. So if the gameplay is bad because it's different then Unreal and you can't pick up powerboosts and extra damage icons everywhere, then that's just sad.

@noirtenshin The game is seriously lacking. It is def not worth $60. I expected so much more but it is clear they held back content just to sell DLC's.

And totally forgot about Sony period. They figured Kill Zone and Warframe were great enough.

@DARREN636  ....But this really is just extra content, the game plays and feels complete without it. They also said that apart from maps, everything else they're going to possibly add to the game is free.


Your attempt at humorously jabbing Respawn and EA kinda falls flat there :/

It's a great game so why not? You would too if it was on your console. Maybe next time. At least you have some great competitive multi-player games like.....CoD and Battlefield.

Like PS3 owners. The game has a different dev that has to code it into the 360.

Be thankful they're taking the time to port it right man, these things shouldn't be rushed :)

@mkeezay22  First off the X1 has sold 4.6 million and shipped 5.1 million do some research next time.Titanfall on the X1 has sold 1.7 million,xbox 360 has sold 660,000,and PC 200,000.The X1 is the main platform for the game it has sold the most and will sell the most.Its really easy to understand when you see the numbers instead of making stuff up

@mkeezay22  I use Steam, Gog, Origin, and Gamersgate.  They all have a great selection and sales that offer players a good choice any day of the week.  Consoles suffer by having their storefronts locked down.  I love my Xbox One, but having only one storefront to rely on for content is kind of weak.  I recently bought Dragon Age 2 on Origin for like nothing, and I got Dead Space for free on Origin earlier this month.  People like to rip on Origin because it's EA, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have good content.  To be honest, I hate Uplay WAY more than Origin.

thorn3000
thorn3000

@mkeezay22 honestly don't assume PC players are turned off by Origin, most people have everything, steam, uplay, origin, whatever is needed to play the game they wanna play....just a small minority is ranting on the forums about the system they don't like and how they are never ever going to use, most people even if they don't like the systems are accepting their usage as a necessary evil and will register in any new system required to play the game they want to play

quakke

@iammcgruber @quakkeIt's not bad because it's not Unreal, it's bad because it's the same old aimdownsights health regen gameplay that has been done to death by modern shooters already. 

Parkour doesn't play big enough role in Titanfall.

@rasterror You seem to be in total damage control mode right now, looking at all your comments here lol. You seem to swoop in any time something negative is said about this shitty game.

We know you're still salty and let down about microshaft totally f-ing up this gen, but show a little more subtlety in your boohoo posts.... lmao.

I hate how dlc has become industry standard.

I hate how its obvious that dlc is created along with the game. In parrellel. From the inception of the original idea of the IP.

I hate how its so transparent.

I hate how the dlc should be on the disc already.

I will say this though

If you could create your own character skin and camo / gun camo. Make it unique , for me, one of a kind.

I would support that.

@thorn3000 @mkeezay22 That's not true I only have Steam and Uplay on my system, I have installed Origin to play the TitanFall and BF4 Betas and also own BF3 but after I stopped playing them I always uninstalled Origin, it's just to bloated for what it has to offer and if your playing BF3 you also have to log in on your browser to Battlelog or w/e it's called so it makes it even more bloated.

The fact is if Titanfall was on Steam it's sales would be considerably higher, this has proven true for many games and even games like Space Engineers has already sold half a million copies because it's been on the front page of Steam and has had a sale, if Titanfall did the same there would be much more PC players that I can guaranty.

I'm not assuming anything I only have a PC now that I sold my PS3 and haven't bought an Xbox 360 since my 3rd one died, now I just upgrade my PC when I spend money on hardware, I will probably buy a PS4 around Christmas for exclusives but other than that it's PC gaming for me right now.

I'm not salty. I have plenty of games to play and they're long lasting. And the great thing is that I've been able to watch and listen to sports and other shows while I'm playing. The games have been great and long lasting and truly look next gen. Sure we don't have as many indies as the PS4 but I have Steam for that. No damage control needed, I'm actually enjoying myself, especially Titan Fall. Matter of fact I want to go and play it now.

@DARREN636  dlc has been a standard in the videogame industry for nearly a decade. Nothing to really bitch about. If you don't like having dlc options for your videogames then go buy an Nintendo system. Their games hardly give you dlc options or mp either.

@DARREN636  I'm not criticizing your opinion on DLC, heck I agree with most of it. Its just that TItanfall already comes packed with a lot of maps and the only thing they're going to sell extra are more maps which is great for those wanting more, everyone else has more than enough to keep themselves busy with. The game is also feature complete. So using that as a basis to explain your thoughts on DLC is just a bit... flawed really.


And its not all doom and gloom, if you look at the DLC of games like Borderlands and GTA and such, you actually notice that its not completely DLC itself that's at fault, its shitty companies that abuse it that's also the big problem here. (looking at you, Capcom).

@mkeezay22  So you installed origin in order to play Titanfall and BF4 despite not liking it? I'm not sure you're arguing against Thorn as you've just validated his point. 

As for Steam increasing sales, Minecraft has likely sold more copies than any indie game on Steam. Then there's the fact that Space Engineers and Titanfall have had very different levels of market exposure Titanfall has had massive marketing campaigns whereas Space Engineers is an Early Access indie title with no marketing campaign.

Origin and Steam are on the exact same level with exception to Steams much larger library. Honestly I'd rather not use any of them but origin doesn't bother me any more than Steam or Uplay.
