Titanfall 2 is bucking the trend by not having a “season pass”, and releasing post-launch content for free.
“Remember when buying a game got you everything?” asks the official Titanfall 2 Twitter. These days, it’s pretty common for fully-priced AAA games to also be acompanied by a pricey “season pass,” that promises additional content later on down the line. For multiplayer shooters, this can be pretty problematic, as season passes fracture the community between those who shelled out for the new maps, and those who didn’t. Thankfully, Titanfall 2 won’t be like that, and will have all post-launch maps, and the majority of other post-launch content, completely free to all players.
“All maps & modes will be free in Titanfall 2 Multiplayer,” said the developer in a blog post. “This means once you’ve purchased Titanfall 2, your investment includes a full single player campaign, the full multiplayer maps and modes, and long-term support with no hidden costs.”
The first “free” new map will be a remastering of the original Titanfall‘s Angel City, and will be released some time in the near future.
The confirmation from Twitter that the game won’t have a season pass confirms that all of the stuff that effects gameplay will be free for everyone, though Respawn has admitted that the game will contain cosmetic microtransactions.
