Rumor – Titanfall Prestige Mode Discovered, Called “Generations”

Over the course of a week, Titanfall has gone from a faithless and skeptical project, to one of the most hyped and anticipated games of 2014, thanks to its Xbox One and PC beta that closed only yesterday.

And while Titanfall builds off an exciting and winning formula from first person shooters like Call of Duty, recent rumors indicate its becoming more and more of a spiritual successor to the famed franchise than ever before.

According to RazorUK’s code fishing findings on NeoGAF, it seems that a version of the classic prestige mode from Call of Duty has been discovered in Titanfall, but is rebranded as “Generations”. The idea and lore behind it being that your pilot wears out over time, becoming increasingly rusty on the field of battle. After reaching the maximum level of 50, according to the poster, you can regenerate into a new body that is “better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than beforebefore” for a price. That price however, is the reset of all your unlocks, challenges, and rank.

There are allegedly 10 generations to work through, each with their own rank images, which you can view through this link.

What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you like the idea of Titanfall having a Prestige-like feature? Let us know in the comment section below!

  • KillzoneVII

    YES YES YES! I used to love prestiging until they took all the fun out of it in Ghosts, had my fingers crossed they’d do it in Titanfall and it seems my wish has been granted!

    • dieger

      How was it more fun in waw through BO2?

      • KillzoneVII

        Well you actually lost everything and had to level up to gain it back, and BO/BO2 gave you special things like colored clan tags, gold guns, animated title, all unlocks for prestiging. In Ghosts you can buy back anything you want at level 1 of your next prestige as long as you have the squad points, oh and you don’t get extra Create A Class slots like you used to.

        • awkenney

          Wow. Good call. I had never even considered that there were not additional create-a-class slots. Although one could consider that there are additional slots in your other soldiers.

          • KillzoneVII

            Yup, and now they’re trying to sell us the missing 4 we used to get for prestiging, lol.

    • KiLLaMaNiLLa

      It Seems they took all the best stuff from COD and Scrapped the shit from COD and Added a bunch more Badass stuff and the Maps are awesome and well laid out can’t wait to see the rest.

      • KillzoneVII

        Agreed, I’m starting to actually feel good about sticking with getting the X1 first instead of PS4.

        • Ryan ‘Ryman’ Clark

          You’re not alone. I had other reasons for getting it first, but this game just made it even more worth it. Despite getting the game on PC as well.

  • awkenney

    I don’t mind a prestige-like feature. I think it gives the community a way to show progression without having to fall back solely on stats.
    The fundamental strategies of Titanfall prevent it from really being a true spiritual successor to COD though. Titanfall requires that two teams battle mostly against the map environment to earn a win, whereas Call of Duty mostly requires that two teams battle in direct opposition to each other to earn a win. Titanfall, so far, is shaping up to be more like a first-person RTS game, rather than the traditional FPS. This is not very transparent however, so many players may play Titanfall without even noticing the difference in strategy.

      You have a good point. However you cannot define a “true sprirtual successor” without referring to it as a direct sequel. It just doesnt work as such. Infact you hit the point on how it is a spiritual successor, and why its similar yet its own game entirely from CoD, right on the head.
      The point of it is,(Although I’m sure you know) is that it’s supposed to look similar, supposed to ave very similar gameplay styles, and can even have references to previous games but without actually being conected to them. This can happen for a nimber of resons. The games could be made by same developer or creative team(Evolve/Left 4 Dead made by Turtle Rock studios, Unreal Tournament and Gears of War created by EPIC games), the original series could have ended(Kings Field to Demon’s Souls), or the dev team does not own the IP to make a full fledged sequel(From Software does not own Demon’s Souls to have made Dark Souls a “Demon’s Souls II” despite creating Demon’s Souls).

      Far cry, the style of gameplay it is know for is being a FPS that gives you the freedom of being on an island and choosing how and when you want to tackle new objectives. In Crysis, its the same level of freedom on another island, except you have suit abilities, modules, and weapons customizatios, and universe of course. Apart from that, the gameplay is generally similar.

      The best example of spiritual sequels is Final Fantasy. All of the final fantasy games are spiritual sequels, as while they all share the same mythos, none of them follows up the story and context of the previous game in most cases. Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII are all sequels to the FFXIII story. But FFXIII is part of the Fabula Novella Chrystallis subset of the FF franchis. The XIII merely reprensts that it’s the Thirteenth game of the main franxhise. Its not a sequelXII, or any way

      • awkenney

        Agreed?

        • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

          Yes :) Fully actually, all concerns considered.
          FYI that second part was mainly for those that don’t know. And I edited it BC I felt it a tad bit overboard.

    • S3anyBoy

      The only gametype in the Beta where bot kills actually contributed to
      the games score was Attrition, in Domination and Last Titan Standing,
      bots were there, but killing them gave your team no points advantage
      (although it did lower titan build times), in the final game, there are
      gametypes like TDM, and CTF in which bot kills will also presumably not
      influence the games score.

      You can say that you don’t like the
      bots, or attrition game type, but claiming that the bots somehow break
      competitive play in the gametypes where they aren’t important is
      disingenuous.

  • Matt

    “Faithless and skeptical project”? Huh? This game has been wrapped in hype ever since the first trailer.

    • PI3KY

      Yeah, when people learned about bots, and dived deeper into what the game featured, people lost faith, and thought the game was crap before they tried it.

      • Matt

        We’ve know about bots since the beginning. At no point has Titanfall not been the most anticipated next-gen title. “Faithless and Skeptical” is a comically dumb thing to say. Maybe it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek humor.

        • MeisseN

          Faithless? No. Skeptical? A little.

  • idi

    Hyped? The Beta got me to cancel my Pre-Order..

    • awkenney

      I have to say that had I not already paid for a preorder, I would probably have waited for the reactions to the full game on the Respawn forums before making a purchase decision on the full game. As it stands right now, engaging live human opponents doesn’t score well enough, and farming minions scores too much. I’m willing to give it a shot. If I feel like I’m playing against the AI more than I am against live human opponents, over time I may not feel like I’m being challenged in the way I’d like a multiplayer FPS to challenge me. I realize that Titanfall is supposed to be an innovative new way to play a first-person game, but in many ways I feel like the Beta jumped the shark.

      • Grif

        Agreed, I feel the same way. Farming AI is a good way to put it, we’ve all ran into the cluster of AI in the beginning of the game and gotten a penta-feed off them.

    • KiLLaMaNiLLa

      Well you would have had to pre-order it first or even have played the beta which i’m sure you didn’t or your just looking for attention which i’m sure that’s the case.

    • MeisseN

      Whoever pre-orders an EA title is completely dumb, check how they f’ed players up with Bugfield 4

      • xbox rules

        Dumb dumb respawn studios separate from ea its the guys that did cod 4 and mw2 for the Xbox one and. Bluepoint studios for the 360 version

        • MeisseN

          I must be seriously retarded because I can’t even read it as a paragraph

          • Grif

            This is how I imagine xbox rules.

            • MeisseN

              Haha, that’s funny.

      • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

        The game is only being funded by EA in exchange for publishing rights via the EA Partners program. Think Crysis and pre Ubisoft Far cry games.

        And the beta and even alpha builds of the game ran far smoother than Battlefield 3 and 4, and many other titles on release day, and had no game breaking bugs to speak of that weren’t rectified.

        • MeisseN

          Still it doesn’t hurt to be a little more cautious. :)

          • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

            I don’t blame you man. EA has instilled that caution into its consumer base unnecessarily.

            • MeisseN

              Anyways I have faith in Respawn and their first release. No one could’ve possibly rushed Titanfall’s release since it’s almost 4 years since Respawn Entertainment came into this world, and the creation of Titanfall started from March, 2010. 3.5 years are above enough for the production of a MP-only game. So there will be less issues than BF3/4, but EA taught me to be cautious and I’ll still wait and see how the real players (not critics) review the game. I’m still going to pick it up sooner or later, but simply not pre-ordering. You can get pre-ordered editions from retail stores after the game’s release anyways :)

            • xbox rules

              Yea u can still pick up preorder editions of the games if employees let u. However I’m a Dick and I give the preorder games to my friends 30% of the time

      • awkenney

        I preordered Titanfall just to show support for Respawn. Well, at least for Vince Zampella, Mackey McCandlish, Todd Alderman, Drew McCoy, Jon Shiring and all of the others that have entertained us on Twitter and saw the development of Titanfall through. These are the dudes that gave me COD4, and now continue with one of the most technically sound modern online games I have ever seen, so I will contribute any way I can to show that I want them to succeed.

        • MeisseN

          Fair point. Anyways, at the end of the day I will buy the game to show my support.

  • xHDx

    I don’t think the game is really over-hyped because it is really an amazing game. If you use all of the tools and opportunities given to you in-game, then it can be very thrilling, especially in teams.

    I think the reason people don’t find it thrilling is because they don’t use speed to their advantage.You should know from call of Duty that height gives you an advantage. I see players just sitting on the floor of the map just hoping to accomplish something. That doesn’t make the game thrilling, it just makes you a waste of a team player. Either that or because people are judging based on what they see and not what they have experienced for themselves.

    This game is well-worth £40/$60 price tag.

    • KillzoneVII

      You just made me realize that there is no prone option in Titanfall… Which is a good thing because being able to go prone encourages camping.

      • xHDx

        Exactly, that’s why I’d rather play this than any other FPS. No campers on this game. If someone is camping, then they can be engaged from any angle so it defeats the point in farming 1 secluded place on the map.

        I have to admit, those shock grenades really help push them out of the camping spots.

        • KillzoneVII

          For sure, although I will say it amazed me how many people I saw attempting to camp rooftops in the Beta, can’t wait to kick their asses in the full game.

          • xHDx

            I can’t say I didn’t see any either, although they’re much easier to get rid off than interior building campers. The hit detection on this game is just unbelievable, in a good way. I love it. Lag free thanks to MS servers’ 0% packet loss.

            • awkenney

              I had good hit detection up until Sunday. Then maybe every 5 matches or so I noticed the SMG was pretty inconsistent. It wasn’t by any means my chief complaint regarding the game however, so I reported it as a bug and moved on.

            • xHDx

              I just couldn’t play the SMG at all. I think it’s recoil may have been the problem. Bounced around to much. The first AR did good enough for me. I could be wrong though. Lag free all the time for me.

          • KiLLaMaNiLLa

            Rooftop Campers= Easy Pickings lol

        • KiLLaMaNiLLa

          After playing the beta it was so easy to kill people who sit in corners because they always seem to be in the same corner. But with one of the burn cards replaces your Stim/Cloak for a pulse radar that shows enemies.Was blown away on how smooth and well balanced the game was for a beta. Def can’t wait till March 11th.

      • KiLLaMaNiLLa

        Def Agree with you

      • Hates bad writers.

        Can you imagine using a jet pack while prone? You’d be a snake on steroids, and you might look a little silly.

        • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

          Lol that was funny.
          If prone was in game a possible “snake glitch” would be taken to a whole.notha.levellevelhttp://cdn.niketalk.com/a/a4/500x1000px-LL-a4867d62_0.jpeg

      • SubXero

        I saw plenty of campers during my time in the beta and it sickened me. This game was made for run and gun and yet people still want to sit off in the back, up somewhere in a bush, cloaked up in a corner, in a building etc. I even saw people camping in their Titans…

        • KillzoneVII

          Right? It’s pathetic, I feel like the community is the biggest problem with shooters nowadays, not the games themselves, well, unless the game encourages camping (like CoD). Thank god we can cloak/wallrun up behind their camping asses in Titanfall.

          • SubXero

            The community is the biggest problem in my opinion. I feel like there are measures that could be taken to eliminate or at least curb the “problem” but most developers aren’t ballsy enough to do it.

  • Harrison King

    I really like the idea of how your pilot becomes more rusty on the battlefield and older each time you prestige. Adds a new factor and creativeness to the game. By the way have I said this game is fantastic? IT IS

    • MegaMan3k

      Isn’t that backwards of what the article says?

      • Harrison King

        “The idea and lore behind it being that your pilot wears out over time, becoming increasingly rusty on the field of battle.” Nope

        • MegaMan3k

          “After reaching the maximum level of 50, according to the poster, you can regenerate into a new body that is “better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than beforebefore” for a price. ”
          Yup.

          • Harrison King

            Hahaha I must’ve read the article with the word prestige in it. Ya got me there.

  • Harrison King

    I honestly don’t know how the beta for Titanfall made people cancel their pre-order, become uninterested in the game, etc. The Titanfall beta left me wanting more. When I first played the beta it was so exciting, action-packed and the visuals were just outstanding. Even though this game is supposed to be innovative it is also supposed to be fun. Titanfall’s goal is not to challenge the player in the game but make sure they are having a great time while playing it and keep the player wanting more after every time they shut down there system.

  • Grif

    You can regenerate into a new body that is “better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than before.” That sounds pretty cool, sounds like to prestige is actually worth it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

      Maybe you might get a permanent, generation specific special ability(maybe multiple choices for each generation) that will remain with you so long as you do not succeed into a new generation of pilots. The concept of being “rusty” might be your ability being outdated in comparison to later generation pilots.

      • Grif

        Ya, I’m glad Respawn is rethinking the whole prestige aspect of the game.

  • Jay Gautreau

    wanna see some fun stryder owning gameplay. Oh do I ever have you covered. if you like what you see wait till the full game comes out it’s going to be 100% better.

  • Marcus Roue

    “Generations” is the same Prestige mode in CoD.

    TitanFall is CoD with mechs. It even runs on the same Source engine.

    Hype is all you’ll be seeing after you play this.

    • MeisseN

      lol @ ur first sentence

      LMAO @ COD being a Source engign game

      Wow you’re so dumb. CoD does not run on Source, CoD and TitanFall have different engines.

      Do some reading before you comment you ignorant cunt.

      • Marcus Roue

        They’re both using old engines, fcukface.
