Titanfall is probably one of the most highly anticipated titles to come out this year and thankfully we don’t have too long to wait. With that in mind more information about the multiplayer-only title which you can read all about, right here!
Developers of Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment, have been responding to questions via Twitter, one question in particular was on all of our minds; Will this multiplayer focused title follow along the likes of GTA Online or some free-to-play titles and contain microtransactions in order to purchase exclusive weapons or titans. Respawn’s answer to that question was simply “no microtransactions.”
The company also revealed that there are no plans on a Season Pass just yet, saying “I don’t have any news on a season pass.” That doesn’t mean there won’t be one, but it also doesn’t mean there will.
During their onslaught of Twitter questions Respawn answered one of the main questions I’ve been wondering, Will Titanfall support split-screen multiplayer like the latest Call of Duty titles? Sadly, “it’s not a feature in Titanfall.” Well.. shit..
Finally the game itself is described as a story driven multiplayer game so therefore it must have an ending… right? Yes, it does. This information comes from an interview by XB1 with Respawn’s senior map designer Mohammad Alavi, so you can expect an answer longer than 140 characters.
“Titanfall will most definitely have an ending. It’s not a story if it doesn’t have an ending, but there are multiple sides to that story.” said Alavi. “It’s told from both the Militia and IMC perspectives, and to fully grasp Titanfall’s campaign, you’ll need to play it from both sides. And as with any good story, we’ve hopefully peppered it with enough detail and nuance that you’ll notice something new every time you replay it.”
So there you have it. Yes, the game will have an ending which’ll need to be seen from both sides, no the game won’t have microtransactions so put that credit card away, there’s no word on a Season Pass, and the game won’t have split screen multiplayer which is kind of a big deal of me.
Titanfall launches on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on March 14 here in the UK and a few days earlier, in North America.
