Respawn on Titanfall 2 DLC: Anything That Affects Balance, Functional, Is Free
Those familiar with Respawn’s vision for Titanfall 2 might already know that the developer is touting a free DLC model for Titanfall 2 when it comes to the game’s maps, modes and weapons.
Speaking to PlayStation LifeStyle, we asked Producer Drew McCoy what this free Titanfall 2 DLC entails and here’s what he said.
PlayStation LifeStyle: You announced that all maps and modes would be free post-launch. So does that mean weapons, Titans, etc., will be paid DLC?
Drew McCoy: Anything that affects game balance, anything functional, is free. Maps, modes, weapons, anything like that is free. We learned an obvious lesson, but it’s extremely apparent on the last [Titanfall], that when you sell things like maps, you segregate the playerbase in a very unhealthy way. Even though it’s obviously going to leave money on the table, when you buy them, it’s much better for the health of the game and the community to not charge for them.
There you have it, folks. If it’ll affect game balance, it’ll be free. I assume that the paid stuff for Titanfall 2 will be Titan skins and other camos, which I’m definitely OK with. If you’ve yet to buy and play Titanfall 2, go snatch it up! There’s a reason it scored a 9/10 in our review, and the fact that it’s giving out free maps, modes, etc., in an era of Season Passes, well, it’s certainly something to support, no?
