Titanfall Creator Talks about DLC, Campaign, Sequel and Xbox 360 Version
Titanfall is by far the most anticipated title coming this month, with release date of the game approaching, CEO of Respawn Entertainment Vince Zampella revealed a lot of information regarding their upcoming shooter including the details on the Xbox 360 version.
First of all, he talked about the leaks that have been going around the internet including the images of multiplayer maps.
Zamepella said that he hasn’t read all of the leaks but sometimes you just have to let it go:
I haven’t read it all so I can’t say if some of it’s incorrect or not, but, I mean, at some point you just have to throw up your arms and say, ‘alright, you got us’, “It is what it is. It’s out there.
When asked what would he do if had a Titan for a day, he answered that he would like to “step on the guy that leaked all the information”.
He went on to talk about, why the single player campaign didn’t make it to the title:
It’s about looking at where people spend most of their time. Generally, people burn through a single player campaign as fast as they can, you spend 5-6 hours, and 80% of the work goes into that. And then you go and spend 100 hours in this thing that gets bare bones – it’s the minimum you can get away with.
For us, it was about pushing the boundaries of what multiplayer is. So let’s take all that great single player stuff, build up the world – that world that you’re going to spend a hundred hours in should be the most full-featured.
He confirmed that there will be DLC coming to the game in the form of free update and some of it will be paid content. There will also be a season pass.
We plan to do DLC to support the game. We’re going to do paid DLC. We’re also going to do 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. We’re going to do a season pass just because if you buy it up front, you get a deal. We’re not doing micro-transactions. So, you know, a season pass is just, buy it up front and get a better price.
Talking about the Xbox 360 version of the game he said that in terms of feature he would want both games to remain the same.
We just started our day on patch, so they now have to take that and integrate it into their game. So, they’re naturally lagging behind us. The goal is to get it as close as possible. Obviously it won’t be exact. It’s on a less powerful system.
There is definitely intention at the studio to make the franchise out of Titanfall so there will “absolutely” be a sequel to the original game.
Titanfall will release on the Xbox One, PC and make its way to Xbox 360 after fortnight.
