Titanfall May Have Season Pass, Pilot-Only Mode

Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe says Titanfall may see a "Pilot-only" mode after release.

Earlier in the week, Respawn Entertainment head Vince Zampella Tweeted that Titanfall would not have a "season pass" - a term that has come to mean a collection of DLC packs at a discount. However, at a special Microsoft Store event in Connecticut, Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe said that Zampella's Tweet was a mistake, as he meant to say that Titanfall would not have an online pass, a kind of one-use code for online play that EA did away with some time ago.

Heppe also hinted that while there are no current plans for a "Pilots-only" mode, the studio would see what happens after release. Pilots-only mode was requested by fans, as although the game is supposed to focus on the titan vs pilot dynamic, a lot of people enjoyed the "last titan standing" mode of the beta, and wondered why there wasn't a similar mode for just pilots.

Heppe said that she has nothing to announce regarding a season pass at the current time, but given that the game is a multiplayer shooter, some kind of map pack DLC seems to be an inevitability (unless, of course, Respawn is *shock horror* planning to offer free patches! Like they did in olden times!)

Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC, with an Xbox 360 version to follow on March 25.
