Upcoming first person shooter Titanfall may prove to be the next best FPS game, but it’s still going to be using the same scummy tactics that every published backed video game has been using for the last few years.
What I’m talking about is DLC - the extra content that you can pay for after you've already bought the game. Like many developers nowadays, Titanfall is already working on the DLC content despite the game not actually being out yet.
With EA at their back, Respawn Entertainment unfortunately don't really have much choice but to release extra purchasable content for Titanfall. At EA's Q3 earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson has revealed that Titanfall DLC is planned, but that it would "evolve" depending on the actions and behaviors of the playerbase.
Wilson said, "Titanfall is a highly innovative game that's multiplayer drive and so we expect a lot of online engagement around that. We're planning extra content already for the product, but in the nature of a large service, I think that will evolve over time as we see how the playerbase evolves through the year."
In simpletons terms, this means that EA aren't yet 100% sure to put in the game as extra DLC content, but it's likely to be something we will all like and would want to buy after EA monitor the average Titanfall playstyles.
Luckily, Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment has already stated that there will not be any microtransactions in the game.
