With more and more titles slowly supporting micro-transaction systems within their games, those who have been eyeing up Respawn Entertainment’s multiplayer-focused first-person shooter, Titanfall, might be happy to know that the team won’t be featuring micro-transaction payments, according to producer Drew McCoy.

“We want to make sure people understand we’re not going to nickel-and-dime you with microtransactions, and we don’t expect you to buy a game, put it in your console, and the first day get asked to spend more money for more content,” McCoy recently told Gamespot. “What you get on the disc is what you bought, and that’s how we’re going to do it.”

On the topic of day-one DLC, McCoy stated “We’re not talking about our plans specifically, but I can say we’re not going to have day-one DLC, and we’re not gonna have microtransactions or anything like that.”

Additionally, although Microsoft has an exclusive deal with Titanfall, it doesn’t mean that a PlayStation 4 release isn’t totally out of the picture, according to a Titanfall dev.

Speaking with Eurogamer on whether Titanfall will ever get a PlayStation launch, lead artist Joel Emslie had this to say:

“It’s definitely not out of the question. We have a huge appreciation for the fans. Coming out and showing it to everybody, we’re super nervous and wanted to make sure everybody loved it. We love all our fans, whatever console they support.”

Titanfall is slated for a spring 2014 release, on the PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Don’t forget to check out the first in-game glimpses of the game by checking out the reveal trailer and some behind the scenes footage.
