The big question regarding the first round of Titanfall DLC is: when? When is the first Titanfall DLC release date? Unfortunately, that's the one answer fans have been unable to get from Respawn and EA. Even though they were happy to sell us a season pass for three Titanfall DLC releases this year we still haven't heard an official calendar release date for ANY of the Titanfall DLC we pre-paid for. It's a little sketchy. The best guesstimates have the first Titanfall DLC release date coming this summer. Although we don't know exactly when the first titanfall DLC release date will be Respawn has been vocal about some of the things fans will get for their hard earned cash. And some things will actually be free.
"We're going to do paid DLC, we're also going to do free updates," Vince Zampella told Gamespot. "There are things we want in the game that we didn't get to ship in the final game. We'll add private matches and things like that for free."
So in addition to the paid DLC we'll be getting some free content updates? Ok, that sounds good. titanfall is a fantastic game but it does offer a lot less variety than most multiplayer shooters. A lack of private matches is immediately noticeable to anyone with more than two friends online. It'd also be nice to see a free-for-all mode as well. After all, not everyone wants to play well with others. But one thing is for sure, the titanfall DLC will come with ... MORE MAPS! (shocker).
"We are going to have maps added," Respawns' PR/Community maven Abbie Heppe told IGN. Not that interesting. what IS interesting is what she said when asked about the possibility of Titanfall DLC including the gargantuan monsters found in the official art book.
"We're trying to give players as much of a varied look at things as we can so that is definitely a possibility," she said. There also will not be any new titans in the future because, as Heppe explained, it takes a lot of work to design one that fits in with Titanfall's already balanced system.
So all we know for sure about the Titanfall DLC is that it will include maps and game modes and, maybe, giant monsters. Let's hope it's worth the price of admission. Respawn has done an impeccable job with titanfall so far, sales are huge and critics love it. But three rounds of botched DLC could counterract some of that good work.
Respawn might be getting a little ahead of itself. While we don't even know what's going to be available on the first titanfall DLC release date we do know one other thing for sure: Titanfall 2 is coming. We know as much about the sequel as we do about the DLC we paid for.
