Titanfall Rep Confirms No Micro-Transactions, No News On a Season Pass

In an age where micro-transactions and downloadable content are commonplace after the launch of most of today’s triple-A games, fans are asking, will this be the case for EA and Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming sci-fi shooter Titanfall?

According to Respawn’s official Twitter account, Titanfall will not include micro-transactions, though the studio has not entirely rule out the possibility of a season pass.

Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 1.40.21 PM Today, most season passes offer a full season of downloadable content at a reduced price, a few examples being Call of Duty: Ghosts’ season pass and Battlefield 4’s Premium subscription. They’re a great way to shave a few dollars off of extra content you know you’ll be purchasing anyways, though it does lock you in without much chance of pulling out, should you grow tired of the game or become unsatisfied with its quality.

Currently, no DLC plans have been outlined for Titanfall.

In news related to the rumored Titanfall beta that may or may not be happening, the studio has yet to confirm the likelihood of another public test, but a recent Twitter response suggests they are still thinking about it.

A limited technical test, or “alpha test”, took place last weekend for invitees to participate in and provide feedback via a closed forum.

    An EA game sans microtransactions? Is this a fake video?

    • Actually, no recent EA shooter, including Battlefield, Medal of Honor, or Crysis, has included micro-transactions. Still, it’s nice to see them keep it out of this one.

        Hate for EA has surpassed logic and reason. EA hate is a “thing” that is not based on what EA does or has done, but rather whatever a blanket statement that EA *is* wrong. No matter what.

        • Jason Lane

          You dont get voted worst company in America just out of spite, especially when you’re up against other industries. They do it to themselves.

          • MegaMan3k

            There was a time when EA held a conference to help improve LGBT representation in gaming. EA received hate for this move on the notion that they should not need a conference to understand their consumers.

            This happened and yet you’re claiming that EA “does it to themselves.” No. EA hate exists as rampantly as it does because they’re a big target and gamers are morons.

            • Jason Lane

              Brother it’s stuff like Madden and BF4 that gets people pissed. Reggie working at Walmart and Peggy with two teenage boys could give 2 shits about LBGT representation. It’s called the eyeball test and they don’t pass it. When you’re voted worst company over cable and banking institutions then you know it goes beyond random hate. I don’t hate them personally, but I believe in the facts when they’re presented.

        Why wouldn’t the shortcut packs be considered as micro-transactions?

  • david

    Hope season pass is $30 not $60 like FUCKING activision does with all cods every year.

    • Matt

      Be grateful David in Australia we get charged $70 for the season passes.

      • I want to give you a hug right now 🙁

      • Just saying

        $65 in my country.

        • Matt

          Yes seem to be the normal for countries with smaller player bases. The biggest problem is that most people are ill informed as they consider the prices they are charged a good deal.

    • Jason Lane

      Unfortunately they sell the hell out of these passes. Welcome to capitalism. Can’t blame them. If the market is there take advantage. You’re complaining about an extra $20 a year. Thats a large pizza plus delivery fee.

    • Brandon Stern

      Well it honestly depends on the amount of content included. If there’s enough content I will gladly pay $50.

  • DerpSlayer

    “I don’t have any news on a season pass” = season pass confirmed

    • dpg70

      That’s what I got from that statement as well.

  • MegaMan3k

    Titanfall would be better off with free maps and paid microtransactions than no microtransactions and paid maps.

    Titanfall is an underdog. Use free maps to keep a community strong while keeping monetization through microtransactions. Splitting the community via paywall map packs, modes, etc, in an underdog title, will kill the game. Guaranteed.

    I’m sure EA already confirmed that they have abandoned the Season Pass because it doesn’t help the community in any way, Hence why BF4 and other games have no season pass.

    It’s nice to see them keeping their promises, and not finding a sneaky way of doing the same thing.

    • That was online pass,

      • xHDx

        Ohh i guess your right. I meant online pass XD
