Nice... Man, I can't wait to get my hands on this game.
MestreRothN4G  +   370d ago
Me too! And I don't even own a XB1.

On topic, incredibly excellent news! Means that the progression will likely work the way it was supposed to be, and not that the progression walls will be the greatest obstacles to overcome in the game.

Well that's at least one worry put to rest, if it doesn't have Microtransactions, it means EA haven't had their slimy greedy fingers anywhere near it. That's definitely upped my excitement for it.

Best news I've read all day.....I personally avoid microtransactions like the plague, I still enjoy the occasional grind in Ryse for example and I refuse to pay 1 penny for anything that can be earned, still I think the industry would be much much better off without microtransactions.
Nykamari  +   370d ago
Joy, you got a lot of haters! I don't understand your disagrees for the statment you've made. But hey keep gaming on the system you like.
FunAndGun  +   370d ago
First time I ever clicked Agree on one of your comments.
aiBreeze  +   370d ago

It just goes to show how bitter some people are. Doesn't matter what console you're a fanboy of, every gamer who has any sort of respect for the integrity and future of gaming should be united against microtransactions.

Nykamari, its instinct, people will not even realise they hit disagree, just the moment the see the name it happens. Get it a lot myself. I am sure there is many who do not even read the article, or the comments, just the headline and they hit agree/disagree based on your history, or which side of the fence you are on. I own both new gen, nearly everything that came before it, but refuse to bash up on one because its the 'popular' thing to do. Sure I hate the fact that MS messed up the great things they started with 360, but whos to say they will not turn it around? Last thing I want is a dominant console, stagnates the industry. Things were great because 360 forced Sony to not assume we would buy anything they threw at us, even if a second job was needed. PS4 is what it is only because MS forced them, and now hopefully history keeps repeating, as this will be the best for all of us. Hope Nintendo can swing things too, but they need unique 3rd party, I cannot justify buying it now for the customary Mario/Zelda game anymore........ Game on....
JokesOnYou  +   370d ago
Nykamari, thanks and its cool, right or wrong I'm going to keep saying what I believe, disagrees and popularity are irrelevant to me on n4g.

FunandGun be careful, that's how it starts...lol

aibreeze, very true.
Bigpappy  +   370d ago
Yep. Played all the Co-op maps and never spent a dime.
FamilyGuy  +   370d ago
Same here, it's funny to see you mention avoiding the plague though cuz your Joker avatar looks like he's got it lol.

For such a small statement this happens to be one of the most significant news stories of the day.
adorie  +   370d ago
I saw tons of footage of the game. I have intent on buying it after it's released so that I can get wind how the game as gold is. It'll be my first ORIGIN game if I end up buying it. :/
FamilyGuy  +   370d ago
This sounds like good news but I wonder if they'll keep to their word. Is this guy able to make this claim with certainty because it's definitely a nice thing to hear.

Does this mean that only meaningful DLC will be released like maps and story expansions or that there won't be any DLC at all? I doubt they'd release a game with no plans for DLC whatsoever but this reply all depends on what they constitute as a "mircotransaction". At least we know those $1-50 cents guns, characters skins and small crap like that won't be there.

The online only game is already $60...I'd hope there's no MTs
Axios2  +   370d ago
Just how misinformed are the fanboys?

$10 credit on pre-order of TF
HarryB  +   370d ago
Last time I was this excited for a game was mw2 and bad company 2. Yes count me in this too.
Linchpin  +   370d ago
This will send out a good message to the others hopefully... but I can't for the life of me justify an online-only for full price... will wait for a massive price drop on PC.

I'm buying it first day on PC.

I didn't like the battlefield campaign that much (mainly did it for the gun unlocks) and I still bought BF3 and BF4 day one. I enjoyed both titles and 95% of my play time was online.

Singleplayer or not, I'm getting this game. I would've bought it on my PS4 if I could.
djplonker  +   370d ago
no microtransactions but I would bet my life there will be a £40/$60 season pass...
malokevi  +   370d ago
This might be one of the few games I will happily pay for DLC. The only game I have ever grabbed a DLC pack for is Battlefield 4, and I have no regrets. If Titanfall is more of what the Alpha brought, consider me happy for extra content.
djplonker  +   370d ago
I have bf4 premium and I have regrets considering all dlc is on hold until the game is fixed!

malokevi  +   370d ago
I have premium also, and I'm loving it, particularly Second Assault. Game has been perfectly playable to me. Haven't crashed in at least a month, and those crashes were few and far between. Fantastic game!
djplonker  +   370d ago
ps4 only has china rising at the moment :/
hankmoody  +   370d ago
Microtransactions? No.
Season Pass? HIGHLY likely. Just hope it's reasonably priced.
True_Samurai  +   370d ago
How many guns will there be? Are there just 3 titan classes? How many arenas and game modes will there be?
XiSasukeUchiha  +   370d ago
Good news here

It's nice to know a game like this won't be trying to shoehorn stuff that doesn't belong just to make a bit of extra profit.

Hell has frozen over...? Did EA aquire a soul or did a miracle just happen?
SockeyBoy  +   370d ago
hmmmm doubt they've got a soul yet.
MegaRay  +   370d ago
Or maybe thier lying. . . Just sayin'
Avernus  +   370d ago
I'll wait till EA says so. I remember DICE saying they would never charge for additional maps and so on... look where they reach >.>

Hopefully there's no MT though, but I'm expecting a $50 season pass for maps + guns + titan skins / camo
LeCreuset  +   370d ago
I can get excited for season pass if done right. When a game like Borderlands comes out with a season pass, I'm on that. I have no problem putting a little up front money in a publisher's hands if it saves me down the line. Borderlands 2 season pass delivered a lot of bang for the buck. Microtransactions? I just can't get excited when they're introduced in a full priced game. The best I can hope for is that they won't cheapen my experience. They definitely don't add to it. If Titanfall comes in with a reasonably priced pass and you like the content that comes with it, I say go for it.

This is good to hear. If behemoths like EA are scrapping MCs, then hopefully others should soon follow.

itisallaboutps  +   370d ago
I was about to skip this game. But clearly the devs seem to care. I may actually pick it up
AnEwGuY  +   370d ago
So...no microtransactions.....only really large ones?
LogicStomper  +   370d ago
Yeah, like buying the game, duh!

Makes me happy.

But it will have expensive DLC we took out of the retail game!
