The boxed release of Titanfall 2 on PC will contain no physical media

 

The boxed release of Titanfall 2 on PC will contain no physical media, containing only a game code for EA's Origin storefront. This will mean that PC users will be forced to download the whole game through EA's Origin client, though this is not a major issue given the fact that Titanfall 2 is primarily a multiplayer title. 

Titanfall 2 will be the first game in the series to include a dedicated singleplayer campaign, with a story which will explore the bond between man and machine, as both fight for survival as the war rages on two years after the events of the original game. In the singleplayer campaign, you will fight as a member of the militia, a pilot who must travel through the hostile world of Typhoon, which not only features deadly wildlife but also the occupying forces of the IMC. 

Taking away the physical media from the physical copy will help to reduce the cost of manufacturing and distributing the game, though it offers PC gamers with no real benefit over a digital copy from EA's Origin storefront, apart from the potential collectors value of the boxed version. 

  The physical release of Titanfall 2 on PC will contain no physical media  

Titanfall 2 will release on October 28th, 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. At this time there are no PC system requirements for the title.

Isn't this cheaping out? I mean, how expensive will be for EA to mass produce DVDs to include in the physical release box?

There are people with slow internet (ADSL) who will want to play the game as soon as they get it -patches won't be bigger than 1GB, I suppose-Quote

I've noticed more and more "code in a box" editions replacing discs. It makes me sad. I like a physical product. I grew up in the sticks which made any kind of update a week long affair. While I now live with good Internet I still lean towards physical copies of games with this year being first I've actually chosen to buy digital over physical. Why can't publishers and PC gamers move to blu ray already? DVDs are outdated and should have been phased out years ago, but physical media will always have a place.Quote

I can't remember what game it was, but I remember buying a game that had a disk, which contained a text file that had the code inside.Quote

See for me personally I'm quite the opposite...NOW. I used to absolutely love physical disks as it meant I could share it with my brother when I was done playing it. Nowdays though with gold sharing on xbox one and good internet I go for digital downloads as often as they are available since I can gold share games with my brother (essentially cutting the cost in half for both of us) and also digital games on my gaming pc can be shared to him since I'll give him my information, boom he downloads its without me needing to mail him a disk since we live in two VERY far away states in the us now.

Idk for me digital downloads are becoming much more common place and overall more advantageous in the long run. Disks are nice and I still have my entire collection of disk games from ps2/ps3/nintendo/sega genesis but some of those (only 2 out of idk probably 100) dont work since the have to many scratches on them. New games of todays consoles and pc I dont want to deal with "oh this game doesnt work cuz of this scratch" :P just my two cents.
