Titanfall Season Pass Detailed

Titanfall will indeed be receiving an season pass, just like every shooter on the market.

UPDATE: Vince Zampella head of Respawn has stepped forward with a response to claims the season pass and it's 'minimal' savings forced by EA “We’re not being pressured to do it [by EA], We’re going to do paid DLC, but we’re also going to do free updates. There are things that we want in the game that we didn’t get in the final game. So we’ll add private matches. We’re going to do a season pass, just because if you buy it up front, you get a deal. We’re not doing microtransactions. It’s just ‘buy it up front and you get a better price."

The season pass will hit the same day as the game and will cost £19.99 and will feature three "planned" content drops at a discounted price. The pack will feature "challenging maps" and is being do simply to offer fans "a good deal". It has been confirmed unlike recent cross gen season passes Titan-falls pass WILL NOT transfer between the two systems. Which reinforces the rumour the 360 version isn't exactly the same as the One version

Its been confirmed the long dead online pass will not return for Titanfall (surprise... Not!) and there will be zero micro-transactions.

Pre-Order Titanfall Here for £42

Abe's Take.
Season Passes have a bad rep for offering a deal to those who know they'll be buying all the DLC and often come with a sweetener that gives an imitate benefit. I've bought a few DLC Season Passes and have only been slightly burned once when Borderlands 2 started getting "unplanned content" but I still got the content I paid for.

If more content beyond the 3 packs I wonder how EA will handle selling Titanfall DLC along side this years Battlefield (rumoured to be Police based) Activision face a similar issue with Destiny and CoD
