EA Says No Season Pass For Titanfall 2, DLC Maps & Modes Will Be Free

Hours before the game’s official launch, Titanfall 2 developer Respawn Entertainment isn’t busy hyping fans up for ‘a great deal on all post-launch content’ for their upcoming triple-A shooter sequel.

Instead, the studio has announced that Titanfall 2 will not launch with the season pass at all. All post-launch maps and modes will be free for gamers on all platforms.

“This means no splitting up the community and it all starts with the legendary Angel City map, remastered from the original Titanfall,” the studio wrote on the game’s official website. “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.”

Last March, Respawn made all downloadable content for Titanfall free to all gamers on Xbox One and PC. To this day, you get can get the original game and all of the maps and modes that were released for it for only the cost of the base game. Later that month, Respawn lead Vince Zampella mentioned that the studio was also considering keeping it that way for the sequel. Lucky for fans of the series, it looks it will indeed remain that way.

Titanfall 2 launches October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    EA DICE/Battlefield could learn something from this. Every year the community gets fragmented by costly DLC that some people want and some people don’t care about. By including it with the base game–which is how it should have been on all of these COD/BF games from the very beginning–they keep the community together and playing all modes as the developers intended…with lots of players and lots of involvement.

      Thing thing is, BF/COD are large enough titles where a ton of people buy the passes that it wouldn’t make sense to make free for them otherwise they would have done it by now TBH. Yeah it still splits the community I will admit, but how many people do you think actually bought the BF1 pass given how well recieved the game is?

      I only think TF2 is is getting the Free DLC treatment because of it’s release schedule and how the 1st game ended up performing along with the reception the Beta got. Usually that is the case for most titles that go with a free dlc model for multiplayer

        true. Another (admittedly unpopular) option could be to just charge more for the base game. So instead of charging $60 for the game and $60 for the season pass/premium/whatever bullshit they could just charge $100 for the game, and include all DLC. That would obviously never happen but it would be one way of compromising…they’d make about the same amount of money (since some people would buy it and some people wouldn’t, or would wait until it drops in price a bit), the gamers would be investing in a two-year game for $100 which isn’t unreasonable, and the community stays together for the long haul.

        BF4 finally released its DLC for free almost 3 years after release. EA have frequently discounted the DLC heavily 6 months after the last DLC pack is released.

        Honestly when you look at CS:GO, LoL, or DOTA2 the free maps given with those games and its HUGE player base, you start to realize that maybe EA should take a page out of those games and stop charging for DLC. If you want to generate revenue look at charging for cosmetic items.
