Titanfall season pass confirmed

Respawn to release a mixture of free and paid DLC

Publisher Electronic Arts is to release a Titanfall season pass.

Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella confirmed the plan in an interview with GameSpot, in which he said the studio intends to launch a mixture of free and paid DLC.


"There will be some paid DLC," he said. "We're going to do a season pass just because if you buy it up front, it's a deal. We're not going to do microtransactions. You just buy it up front, and you get a better price.

"We're also going to do free updates. 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."

EA has confirmed a PC and Xbox One Titanfall release date of March 11, 2014 in North America and March 13 in Europe. The Xbox 360 version, which is being handled by Bluepoint Games, was recently delayed until March 25 in the US and March 28 in Europe.

Zampella said the target is for the Xbox 360 version of the game to offer the same experience as that delivered on other platforms.

"The game's obviously not done yet. They're doing a port of our game, so as we come in hot, we just certified our day one patch, so they have to take that and integrate it into their game, so they're naturally lagging behind us. The goal is to get to get it as close as possible; it obviously won't be exact since it's on a less-powerful system."
