Titanfall Companion App Confirmed; Improvements to Party System Promised
Titanfall was released earlier this week in North America to raving reviews. The launch was relatively smoother than most of EA’s previous titles, with only minor server issues on both Xbox Live and the PC. Both have been fixed now, with Microsoft stating that the issue with Xbox Live had nothing to do with Titanfall.
With the game released, Drew McCoy, the producer at Respawn Entertainment, took to Twitter recently to answer a few questions. According to his Tweets the studio is going to bring a number of improvements to the game in the coming weeks, based on fan feedback and demand.
Amongst those are improvements to the party system, fixes to the chat issues, ironing down team balancing between matches, as well as the addition of private lobbies and uncapped frame rates for PC players.
McCoy also confirmed a companion app for Titanfall but wasn’t able to offer any details yet. “Unfortunately it didn’t make it in time for release, but its coming soon,” he said.
A recent Tweet from Respawn Entertainment has also revealed that the developer is currently discussing with Aspyr about a Mac version of Titanfall. Upon being asked on Twitter if a Mac version would be coming soon, studio head Vince Zampella confirmed that “We are talking to Aspyr, they should do it.”
Titanfall releases tonight in the UK for the PC and Xbox One. The Xbox 360 version is scheduled for release on March 25 in the US and March 28 in Europe.
