Respawn’s Vince Zampella has explained how the majority of Titanfall 2’s post-launch content will be totally free, claiming the intention is to not “split the community”. This is achieved by Respawn giving away all additional maps and modes free of charge. So players won’t ever be locked out of playlists, and DLC map packs won’t become ghost towns.

Naturally enough the aim of the game is to make money though, and Zampella has said there will still be plenty of goodies in-game which can be paid for with cold hard cash. “We still want to provide post launch content because people want it, but it’s not free to do,” Zampella said. “If we’re going to support the game that costs money”.

From the sounds of things that means most or all cosmetic DLC is going to charged for, so if you want to pimp your Titan you’re going to need to get your wallet out. It’s pretty much the same approach to DLC as the likes of Rainbow Six Siege and Overwatch. The former was slated for its microtransactions, the latter was praised to high heaven for them, so take your pick.

A lot of the ire surrounding the original Titanfall at launch surrounded its lack of content and an in-your-face season pass, but Zampella says can trust Respawn to “do the right thing” with Titanfall. “Not sell maps and modes - we’ll get more people investing with us, investing in the game as a whole. They’re going to trust us not screw them over and they can be happy with their $60 versions”.

Titanfall 2 is out on October 28th worldwide, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It shouldnt even be called DLC. It should be considered as a "content update", something Insurgency has been doing since its existence. Just add more content into the game with updates, keeps the game fresh, and people interested.

there's a reason overwatch was praised for it's microtransactions. it's because the more you play overwatch, you get lootboxes which drop random goodies like skins, voice lines and poses. by paying money, you can buy lootboxes but that is all. they're not charging for maps or heroes which is the best thing about the game. if Titanfall 2 is anything like that then I'm happy. If they start selling weapons or titans then I'm out.

Hoping DICE does the same approach, but we'll see.
