Season Passes And Free DLC For Titanfall, Xbox 360 Edition Discussed
In case you were wondering how next you were going to spend your money after immediately spending it on Titanfall later this month, free and paid downloadable content has been confirmed for the game, including a season pass.
“We plan to do DLC to support the game,” says Respawn Entertainment founder Vince Zampella. “We’re going to do paid DLC. We’re also going to do free updates.”

Well we can all sleep a lot easier now.
“We’re going to add in – there’s 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. We’re going to do a season pass just because if you buy it up front, you get a deal. We’re not doing micro-transactions. So, you know, a season pass is just, buy it up front and get a better price.”
Or, you know, save your money and buy yourself something nice instead.
Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 version of the game is being developed by Bluepoint Games. Somewhat troubling is the fact that it hasn’t yet been publicly unveiled. Still, Zampella is confident in the team working on it. “I mean the game’s obviously not done yet,” he said. “[Bluepoint Games is] doing a port of our game. We just started our day on patch, so they now have to take that and integrate it into their game. So, they’re naturally lagging behind us. The goal is to get it as close as possible. Obviously it won’t be exact. It’s on a less powerful system.”
As long as it’s not completely terrible…
As for post-launch support for both versions of the game, when asked, Zampella’s response was a curt, “We’ll have to sit down with EA and talk about that, but my assumption is yes.”
Stand by for Titanfall, later this month.
