Jump on this as fast as you can, because we don’t know if it’s official or just a glitch in the system.
Multiplayer shooter Titanfall released about a year ago for Xbox One and PC, and over the course of its existence it has received 3 dlc packs that cost $9.99 each.
However, today it has been spotted that all 3 of DLC packs are available to download on Xbox Live free of charge. You can download the map packs individually or just download the Season Pass, which includes the Expedition, Frontier’s Edge and IMC Rising packs. This deal has not been confirmed by the developers and could very well end up being a glitch in the system, so take advantage of this as soon as you can.
Titanfall is developed by Respawn Entertainment for Xbox One and PC, with the Xbox 360 version being developed by Bluepoint Games.
Yes, it will be a multiplatform game, but will Microsoft go for another timed exclusive deal like Rise of the Tomb Raider?
It’s no secret that Respwan Entertainment’s Titanfall is going to be getting a sequel at some point in the future, though there has been much speculation regarding whether or not it will remain Xbox One exclusive. The PlayStation 4 is enjoying greater success than Xbox One, and where publisher EA is all about the bottom line it seems natural that they would make Titanfall 2 multiplatform.
GamingBolt spoke with Wedbush Securities’ Michael Pachter regarding the future of Titanfall and he had this to say:
“Respawn Entertainment made a game [Titanfall] in about four years with 75 guys. And Vince Zampella will have a new game on multiple platforms probably in three years. He’ll beef up the studio and he is really good at it. So I would expect, since Titanfall came out in March of ‘14, you’ll see Titanfall 2 probably by Holiday of ‘17, so I expect that they’ll announce it at next year’s E3, a year from now. But yes it will be a multiplatform game and yes, Microsoft will offer something for a timed exclusive.”
So, as we’ve all suspected, Titanfall 2 being a multiplatform game is pretty much a done deal. However, Microsoft trying for a time-exclusive deal will be an interesting one to see unfold. Will Respawn Enertainment and EA be willing to delay the sales of a game that will undoubtedly do better on PlayStation 4? It’s already happened with Rise of the Tomb Raider, but I guess we’ll all just have to sit back and speculate until the time comes!
Titanfall’s future could very well end up being multi-platform.
Titanfall released exclusively for Xbox consoles (well, and PC) early last year, and even though the game didn’t have the legs that many were hoping it would it will nevertheless be getting a sequel. There have been rumors for many months now that a sequel could potentially end up being a multi-platform game, though any kind of confirmation on that front had been limited.
Now, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen has broken the silence on the next game in the series. At the 2015 Technology, Internet & Media Conference he said the following about the series’ future:
“Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven’t yet announced, but we’ll probably have another Titanfall game. It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that’s a huge positive for us.”
Now, in terms of what other consoles Titanfall 2 would end up on, I think in this case that would just be PlayStation 4. While the first game did make an appearance on Xbox 360, I think by the point 2 comes around it will be current-gen only for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Let’s be real – It’s definitely not going to end up on Wii U.
I personally am a bit neutral on the news, more for the fact that I lost interest in the game not long after it launched. It’s a solid shooter, but it just doesn’t have the depth in gameplay modes or single-player at all to keep me coming back.
Titanfall is developed by Respawn Entertainment and launched on Xbox One and PC on March 11th. The Xbox 360 port of the game was handled by Bluepoint Games.
The final map pack is coming next week for 360 players.
IMC Rising released for the PC and Xbox One versions of Titanfall last month, but now it has been announced that the same DLC for Xbox 360 will be released on October 21st.
IMC Rising contains three new maps:
Sand Trap – one lone complex contained in a wide open desert.
Backwater – a moonshine colony with multiple tunnels.
Zone 18 – secret research facility.
IMC Rising is the last map pack DLC for the game, though it’s unknown if anything else may come to light somewhere down the line.
You can purchase the IMC Rising DLC pack for $9.99, but you can also get it as a part of the Season Pass program for the game. This will net you all of the game’s downloadable content at a price that will save you a bit of money if you are intending on getting all of the add-on content anyway. The map packs have generally been getting praise from what I’ve been hearing, so it’s probably not a bad idea to go that route for this particular game.
Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall will be getting one final batch of DLC content in the form of IMC Rising, which is attainable through the Season Pass and as an individual download. IMC Rising will release tomorrow on September 25th for both the Xbox One and PC, with the Xbox 360 version coming soon.
The maps that are available in this pack are Zone 18 (a laboratory with underground tunnels), Backwater (a moonshine colony), and Sand Trap (an open desert). It’s safe to say that Titanfall players will be getting plenty of intriguing new maps to sink their teeth into.
Get ready to ditch your Titan and duke it out with Pilots only.
Titanfall is getting a new game mode that focuses on Pilots only as a result of game update 6. The game mode is called Pilot Skirmish and it removes Titans and AI from the battlefield, while also boosting the number of Pilots from 12 to 16.
This new mode isn’t the only thing that is happening as a result of update 6, however. The popular Marked For Death gametype has now been made a permanent mode in the game’s playlist while also tweaking the game’s Black Market to allow you to purchase individual Burn Cards. Three color blind options have also been added to help those who had voiced difficulties with handling certain gameplay elements.
All of this and many more little things are being tweaked in this update, so for a full list you can head on over to Respawn Entertainment’s website right here.
There has been no official release date announced for update 6, but it is expected that it will launch in the first week of September for Xbox One and PC and a couple weeks later for Xbox 360.
Heads up Origin users: Titanfall has returned for another round of Origin Game Time. This means that you will be able to play the game for 48-hours for free. The timer starts as soon as you start your free-trial, so once you start playing you have the next two days to play.
It’s worth noting that those who took part in the original Titanfall Origin Game Time will not be able to do so again. This deal is only for those who have yet to take the plunge into the crazy mech action, so if you haven’t yet then I highly recommend you check it out. It may not have much to offer in terms of any kind of single-player campaign (no, we will NOT count those lame story bits thrown into the multiplayer), but the actual gameplay is super smooth and a heck of a lot of fun to play.
Titanfall is developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts for Xbox One and PC, though the Xbox 360 version of the game is handled by Bluepoint Games. Check out the Free the Frontier trailer for the game that recently premiered at Gamescom below.
