Shooter fans anxious to purchase and download the digital version of Titanfall on the Xbox One ahead of its March 11 launch will be able to do so, according to Respawn Entertainment studio head Vince Zampella.
On Titanfall’s official Xbox page, it reads.
“Pre-purchase: You will be charged the full price immediately for this pre-purchase. Xbox One game expected to release on March 11th, 2014. You may download the game from Xbox Live before then, but it will not be playable until after 12:01 AM PST on the release date in your country.”
Titanfall is a 15.88 GB Download.
Titanfall’s Origin page indicates that PC users will be able to pre-purchase and pre-load the game ahead of its March 11 release as well.
“We believe in digital distribution, and are proud to give gamers a variety of ways to purchase and experience their games. However, pre-purchase and pre-download for Titanfall for Xbox One will not be available from Xbox Store. We’ll continue to strike a balance between digital distribution and its benefits, while supporting physical games purchase through our retail partners.”
The Xbox page has since been removed. We’ll keep you updated on any official announcements from either Microsoft or Respawn Entertainment on the matter.
