Respawn: No micro-transactions with ‘Titanfall,’ buy DLC upfront for better deal

Respawn Entertainment plans to support its much-anticipated Microsoft exclusive title Titanfall with a supply of DLC following the game’s launch next week, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

In an interview with GameSpot, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said the studio would be supporting Titanfall by offering DLC for gamers to buy, but also giving them free updates.

“We’re going to add in; There’s things that we want in the game that we didn’t get to ship in the final game, so we’ll add private matches and things like that for free,” Zampella said.

Zampella also indicated that Respawn wouldn’t be utilizing micro-transactions with Titanfall, only that the studio would be offering a season pass for the DLC, which he said is a better deal that purchasing the extra content individually.

“So, you know, a season pass is just, buy it up front and get a better price,” Zampella said.

Later in the interview, Zampella said that Bluepoint Studios, the developers in charge of porting Titanfall over to the Xbox 360, are obviously “lagging behind” a bit in terms of putting the final touches on the game.

Electronic Arts delayed the game in early February so that Bluepoint could have extra time to polish the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall.

Titanfall launches for the Xbox One and PC on March 11 while the Xbox 360 version of the game will launch two weeks later on March 25.
