The maximum number of players in Titanfall’s Multiplayer will be up to 12. Respawn founder Vince Zampella confirmed this via Twitter that each side will have only six human players and they will be joined by AI support.
He wrote, responding to a fan’s question about the game’s player count.”6v6 is max player count. Turned out to be the best balance with AI for us,” “That’s humans only count. There are lots of AI, everyone can have a Titan in follow or guard mode too.”
The playable demos of the game had only featured six players on each side but the final count was not officially confirmed. E3 demo showed seven players on each team but at that time, there was no final verdict on the player count.
Talking to Polygon at E3 the producer of the game Drew McCoy said “ So I think what we showed on Microsoft’s stage was 7 on 7, but it really comes down how many titans can be in play at once, how many AI, what the level is like, and what the mission is. It is something that we change on a weekly basis and playtest a lot. Our goal first and foremost is to make a fun game.”
Recently it was confirmed by Zampella that Titanfall will not feature modding or mapping tools at launch and earlier this week it was also confirmed that the game will include sniping minus the effectiveness of quickscoping and no-scoping techniques.
It might be a disappointing news for the players who have enjoyed Battlefield 4’s 32 v 32 multiplayer, but we will have to wait and see what Titanfall has in store for us when it hits the shelves on March 11 for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
