Titanfall to get Season Pass

It feels like every day we get a little tidbit of information about Titanfall. Where are my titan-sized pieces of info? Oh well, please download this small piece of information and we promise that we’ll give you more as we go. Because you have the season pass to our hearts. Wait, this went radically off topic.

Vince Zampella, the man we always hear from at Respawn, told Game Spot that the game will include both paid DLCs and free updates:

We’re going to do paid DLC. 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. There will be some paid DLC. 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.

Ah, so they will be adding private matches and probably other features as they are demanded by fans. Presumably the DLCs will include new maps, new titans, new guns and maybe even alternative match types. Considering the whole “multiplayer only” approach of the game, I’d imagine it’d be in everyone’s best interest to grab that season pass so that there are more people with all the extras to play with. Unless, of course, you’re playing on Xbox 360 – while the goal is for the experience to be as close as possible, the 360 simply won’t have the same capacity. In terms of Xbox 360 support regarding upgrades and patches, Zampella simply said:

We’ll have to sit down with EA and talk about that. My assumption is yes, but I don’t know if I’m the best person to speak for that.

Really, though, I can’t imagine the game being as fun on the 360 – it just feels like a top of the range game, begging for your PC or Xbox One. I really hope that we get an update on our local Xbox One release date before the game launches – if possible I’d rather wait a little bit and play the game on fancy new console. But I’ll probably cave and just play on PC with a controller.

        Best part is, people getting into gaming now wouldn’t understand how games ever worked without it.

    Among my least favourite things to hear about gaming:

    1. Day one patch
    2. DLC
    3. Season pass
    4. Exclusive
    5. “AAA”
    6. Short game length

          Not even Dragon Age Milk or Mirrors Edge 2 where they reboot the lore because they want to milk the on-line aspect instead of paying Pratchet to continue her Character development?

    SOP you pay R800 for a game, and then if you want to play with your mates in the US of A you need to pay for the DLC? I tell you who got this right, Mass Effect. Free DLC and if you wanted you could pay for the packs, didn’t have to though.
