In a move quite unfamiliar to games with EA branding, Developers Respawn have announced that Titanfall 2 will not have a season pass for post-release content. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
There’s few things worse in multiplayer gaming than that sinking feeling when a new piece of DLC comes out, and you realise if you want to keep playing with a splitting population, you need to fork out more money.
Well, earlier today, Respawn has announced that Titanfall 2 will not be releasing a season pass, and all future game modes and maps will be free.
On the site, the announcement reads:
“No Season Pass required: all maps & modes will be free in Titanfall 2 Multiplayer. This means no splitting up the community and it all starts with the legendary Angel City map, remastered from the original Titanfall. This means once you’ve purchased Titanfall 2, your investment includes a full single player campaign, the full multiplayer maps and modes, and long-term support with no hidden costs. You can pre-order the game to play 3 days early, but it will never cost you extra.”
This move makes sense. The last Titanfall struggled to maintain a strong playerbase, and the release of further DLC only diluted the population further. By providing new modes and maps for free, hopefully the game will separate itself from the myriad of other first-person-shooters that are out by the holidays, and keep people coming back for more.
