When Titanfall 2 launches later this year it will be followed by a DLC release plan that is 100% free, which was recent news that gamers everywhere really appreciated in this day and age. Now the developer is talking a little bit more about the decision to do that, as well as what it means for them going forward.
Talking to GamesRadar+, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said the following:
“We’re giving away all the maps and modes… we don’t want to split the community. We still want to provide post launch content because people want it, but it’s not free to do. If we’re going to support the game that cost money.”
However, when it comes to covering the cost for the DLC development the developer isn’t quite sure what their plan is. He said that they “haven’t got everything solved yet so that’s why it’s really hard to talk about it.”
Producer Drew McCoy then chimes in by saying the following:
“We need to trust the player and they need to trust us. Trust that if we do the right thing – not sell maps and modes – we’ll get more people investing with us, investing in the game as a whole. They’re going to trust us not screw them over and they can be happy with their $60 versions.”
Titanfall 2 is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28th.
