For a multiplayer-centric game like Titanfall, a season pass was a foregone conclusion. After all, what’s better than making gamers pay up front for content that doesn’t even exist yet? The games industry has yet to find something better so a season pass it is.
Respawn Entertainment announced today that Titanfall will be getting three map packs this year after its launch on March 11. Those three map packs can be purchased individually, but you can get them all at a discount with the season pass for $25. That alone tells us that each map pack will cost the usual $10.
The season pass will be available on all three platforms – Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC – but it’s not cross platform. In other words, buying the season pass for Xbox One will only get you the map packs for the Xbox One version of the game. If you switch to the PC version down the road, you’ll have to buy the season pass again.
Speaking of the PC version, Respawn is now offering what it calls the Titanfall Digital Deluxe edition on Origin. This edition of the game includes the base game as well as the season pass content for $80.
Interestingly enough, it looks like Titanfall won’t just be getting new maps though. In the FAQ section of the announcement, Respawn says each content pack in the season pass will contain new maps, but that’s not the only thing it’s working on. The other non-map content “is still to be determined,” however, and will be revealed at a later date.
With only a week left until its launch, hype is at an all time high for the first big shooter of 2014. Here’s a launch trailer to hold you over:
