Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall's DLC will remain free forever, after the game's one year anniversary. This means that all players of the game can play all 3 of the games expansions, which used to cost £7 each.

 

 

Here is a statement from Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella  

 

"A year ago we launched our debut game, Titanfall™. It’s hard to believe it’s already been that long since we were hanging out with real-life Pilots in London, launching the game with Major Nelson at SXSW and meeting fans in our home base of Los Angeles.

Since then we’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of support from our community. You’ve given back to us by creating costumes, videos, tournaments and art inspired by the game that continue to amaze the team here at Respawn. In turn, we’ve worked hard to create new modes and features as well as maps to show our commitment to you and keep giving you more reasons to enjoy Titanfall.

In celebration of our one year anniversary, all Titanfall map packs are now available for free* on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. You just have to head to the online store on Origin or Xbox and download the Season Pass.

Thanks again to all of you who’ve supported us and we can’t wait to make more games for you in the future. In the meantime, if you haven’t tried the new maps, we hope you love them and happy anniversary, Titanfall!"

 

This is a big move from the Respawn team. As many of you know many of the leading minds in Respawn were formerly from Infinity Ward, the makers of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Series, which was a very multiplayer DLC filled and none of which was ever made free for the players of the game. 

Many multiplayer games rely on DLC like this to keep the playerbase interested, which in turn will ship more units of the game for other interested players and provide the developer additional funding to developer a new game, DLC or just to keep the servers running. 

Multiplayer DLC, especially map packs have one major negative affect on the game's community, player segmentation. New players and players with just the base game will have a smaller map pool to play in and players with the map DLC could have difficulty finding enough players to play on their premium maps in the long run.

Making the game's map packs free for all players should help the Titanfall playerbase stay interested in the game for a while longer and will hopefully will bring some new players into the fight. I wonder if some other multiplayer DLC heavy games will follow suit?

Thanks respawn for waking up and realizing that splitting the community with map packs is a bad idea!Quote

^The only reason they're doing this is to pull the community back together.

Must be because the sequel will be here soon...Quote

It really could have had a good campaign if they wanted to make it. Come on, it isn't hard to write a story about fighting robots.

I do like Titanfall, but I don't have the time to play many multiplayer games.

I agree, it is great to see this segmentation be resolved, but it is just to get the community more active for a sequel.Quote

Hit the nail on the head.

An offline campaign like is done for the BF and CoD games would have gone down nicely, I'm not too keen on multiplayer only titles.Quote
