Titanfall might get a DLC season pass, pilot-only mode could come after launch

Respawn says original statement about season pass was an error; "We'll see what happens after launch," community manager says about pilots vs. pilots mode.

Tonight during a special Microsoft Store event in Connecticut, Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment explained that the upcoming game could get a DLC season pass and teased that a pilot-only mode may come sometime after launch.

Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe said cofounder Vince Zampella's tweet this week about the game not having a season pass was a mistake. She clarified tonight that the game won't have an online pass, but said the company has nothing to announce--at least right now--regarding a season pass. Electronic Arts did away with online passes last year.

A tweet from the official Titanfall Twitter account apologizes for the confusion.

The season pass would presumably include access to various Titanfall DLC packs at a discounted rate compared to buying them individually. Though Respawn has yet to announce firm plans for post-release support for Titanfall, the developer said previously that DLC for the game was in the planning stages. Titanfall is a major multiplayer shooter, so significant add-on content should be expected.

Also during the special event tonight at the Westfarms Mall in West Hartford, Conn. Heppe said though a pilot-only multiplayer mode for Titanfall won't be available at release, "we'll see what happens after launch." The chief intrigue of Titanfall is its pilots vs. mechs gameplay, so a pilots-only mode would be a surprise.

Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC, with an Xbox 360 version--developed externally at Bluepoint Games--to follow on March 25. Microsoft is throwing a huge party in Texas to mark the game's release.
