not a Multiplayer map

14 maps is awesome, been playing Titanfall alot since yesterday. I love it, if only 2 maps, limited modes and limited to 1 Titan is this much fun I can't wait until March 11th.
lsujester  +   59d ago
Decent total, although I'm more interested in weapons and Titan types myself. I want more variety in what I can do, not places to do it in.
ginsunuva  +   59d ago
Sound like CoD map names: vague single words.
nope111  +   59d ago
14 launch maps is really good, can't remember how many times i got bored of MP games because of lack of launch maps *COUGH* Halo 4 *COUGH*
ManyFishToFry  +   59d ago
They should be adding future maps for free. That is how you warrant the $60 price and keep fans staying with your product since it is multi-player only.
mhunterjr  +   59d ago
I'd like it if anyone who purchase the game new get all maps for free. I think all publishers should do it that way.
Fireseed  +   59d ago
Because artists just work off magic and whimsy right?
VENOMACR1227  +   59d ago
No one gives free dlc anymore. Story line or not. And if they are going to release new maps and titans, I doubt they will he free. Be nice though if they were.
Kingthrash360  +   59d ago
killzone, skullgirls (well "encore" is basically a dlc free for people who bought the original)...but sadly, thats all i could think of.
this game should have free maps but its ea we're talking about so doubtful. i smell a 49.99 season pass.

*No one gives free dlc anymore.*

Ahem KZ:SF would like to have a word worth you.

OT:14 map is good.
Immorals  +   59d ago
Gta V did. Not the best, but still free
SonyROXitoohya  +   59d ago
To hose saying ps4s killzone DLC is free, it's only that way because nobody would buy it as the multiplayer stinks and nobody plays it. I traded killzone in after 3 days, it was all looks and no substance, a horrible launch title.
nope111  +   59d ago
MassEffect 3 had a years worth of free MP DLC that was really good, classes, maps, weapons, and even a new enemy to fight.
That's how you do DLC right.
Septic  +   59d ago
Should single player only games also gave free DLC then? After all, there's more longevity in MP games.
AKissFromDaddy  +   59d ago
"Should single player only games also gave free DLC then?" Yeah. At least one. If you disagree, I understand.
Master-H  +   59d ago
Well paid DLC in MP games could divide up the community, you don't have to worry about that in SP games.
nohopeinc  +   59d ago
I don't see how if it had single player it would be worth $60. And no, maps should not just be free. I will say that these guys are IMO pretty cool devs, and I think we will see a few free maps here and there. But I would be willing to pay because they add value to the game for me.
solar  +   59d ago
maps mean nothing when the gameplay isnt good. and the gameplay isnt that good. been playing the PC beta, it is CoD with Mechs.
mhunterjr  +   59d ago
To each his own.. I hate COD. I'm really enjoying Titan fall.. If the differences were as minimal as you suggest, I wouldn't be enjoying myself.
aiBreeze  +   59d ago
Couldn't have said it better myself.. people calling it CoD with mechs are either playing it wrong or haven't played it at all. The metagame is completely different to CoD.
Sayai jin  +   59d ago
@MHunter- I agree, I am not a COD fan at all, but I really enjoy Titanfall. I really like how fluid the game moves. When I am on foot I feel like a lethal ninja able to take out people and even the Titans..and when I get into my Titan I feel like a beast and I bash, shoot, and even snatch other pilots out of their mechs...and even when I have to eject out of my Titan because it is damaged..I end of feeling like who am I going to mess up first. This game has, is and will continue to get rave reviews. Some people might not like it and that's ok. but the constant comparison..."COD with Mechs. We should use this with other games that are made by the same or similar devs. I got a huge list of these too.

On topic, 13 maps is a decent amount.
PsylentKiller  +   59d ago
Exactly, CoD with Mechs is minimalistic. Could say the same for anything. Infamous = Sly Cooper with a different skin, Battlefield = CoD with vehicles, Uncharted = Tomb Raider, Halo = Tribes, Baseball = Golf with a moving ball, Chicken Nuggets = Chicken in small pieces.

The hype is real for me. I can't wait till 3/11/14
VENOMACR1227  +   59d ago
I hate cod too. Your rewarded in cod for camping to get your kills up to call in a chopper to dominate the battlefield. Here, everyone gets a titan and killing people just speeds it up a bit more. No stupid perks like dropping a grenade when you die. cod is very one or two level type of game meaning you can't get vertical. Addition of jet packs let's you go anywhere. And against titans, pilots have a fighting chance. Its really an addictive fun game.
solar  +   59d ago
i hate CoD myself Mr. mhunterjr but everything about Titanfall screams CoD. the gunplay, the movement. the game is fun but its a casual fun. jump in for a few and kill, then get out. no learning curve, no difficulty to the game.
ginsunuva  +   59d ago
^^@PsylentKiller

Not really. The examples you name are way less similar than Titanfall is to CoD. But I mean it makes sense since it's the original devs.
Nocando  +   59d ago
Same here, cannot stand COD but love TF.
lsujester  +   59d ago
I like it myself. I'll admit that COD feel is definitely there, but it's much better than the camp- and knife-fest that the actual COD often degrades into.
FlameBaitGod  +   59d ago
If they removed the AI(which is there to fill the map cus they are big) and replace em with real people + make it so that the TEAM(not every player) gets a titan drop every w/e minutes then that would make it a lot better.

mhunterjr  +   59d ago
Nah, the game is already hectic enough... not a second goes by where bullets aren't wizzing by your head or explosions happening near by...

Having more human players might make the game too intense. 6v6 is the sweet spot, and the bots don't hamper the game play...if you don't want to shoot at them, don't.. It changes nothing.
vinotauro  +   59d ago
Can definitely see where you're coming from. I think the problem is that there is no mode that defines Titanfall...playing Domination or TDM gets pretty boring after a bit.
mwjw696  +   59d ago
Suggesting that Titanfall is COD with mechs is very lazy and stupid.

Yes it has an arcade feel, but a much deeper risk/reward system.

Yes it has guns, (Its a shooter!) but even the beta tells us there will be more variety of weapons.

That's where the comparison ends for COD sorry.

It has movement from Crysis 2/3 multiplayer, par core from brink, mechs from my dreams, burn cards from the heavens, and kit customization that is original yet familiar.

You can not take two things and call it a day. If anything its the infinitely better version of brink + mechs.

So does that conclude that it's a bad game? Or a bad game for you?
solar  +   59d ago
it is a fun game. but nothing about it makes me feel rewarded. it isnt difficult, it is just run around like a chicken with your head cut off. like...CoD. i will not be buying it for full price.
4ShotKing  +   59d ago
13 maps seems respectable enough, that's more than most AAA shooters these days at launch. I'm enjoying the game, looking forward to Titanfall.
AKissFromDaddy  +   59d ago
Modern Warfare 2(the best) launched with 16 maps; Battlefield 3 and 4 launched with 9 very large maps; Killzone Shadow Fall launched with 10 multiplayer maps; Call of Duty: Ghost launched with 13 maps, 14 with the preorder Free Fall map.

Personally, 14 maps, that are 6 vs. 6, is extremely underwhelming for $60,....for on online only. If there were co-op maps, like Pilots vs Titans, than I'd be like,"Yeeeeaaah".

I expected ,at least, 18 maps. I'm only able to play online.

Even The Last of Us launched with 7 maps, half of Titan Fall's, and that game focused heavily its story.

I need DLC for this game because the maps will become boring because it's only competitive. I want co-op too.

What do you think? Am I unreasonable for thinking that 18 maps would have been normal?
mwjw696  +   59d ago
Its not that you are wrong its just that Activision, EA, and who ever threw KZ together are HUGE teams with TONS of fun bucks behind them.

Respawn is a small good team, they can make good content just not a lot of it. They just did not have the team or the money. Maybe for Titanfall 2.

No one plays TLoU like all Sony online titles, and they are ripped strait out of the single player anyway.

No co-op that's idiotic.
4ShotKing  +   59d ago
As long as the maps are top quality then I don't have an issue, remember Respawn are a small developer and Angel City is already a classic map IMO.
AKissFromDaddy  +   59d ago
I jump INNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ITTT! Thank you so much. LMFAO, I'm so cheap, ahahaha. I'm so happy now. I love you man!

@mwjw696

You're right that Respawn is small team in comparison to DICE's and Bungie's 350 employees. However, Respawn forgoes single player and co-op for only multiplayer.

Respawn has 69 members: 20 Artist including 2 VFX(Visual effects) & 1 UI(User Interface) Artists,
19 Game Designers, 13 Software Engineers, 3 Animators, 2 Sound Designers, 1 IT Manager, 1 Community Manager, 1 Mocap Technician, 1 HR/Recruiting Manager,
1 Character Technical Director, 1 QA Manager,
1 Associate Producer, 1 Producer, 1 Audio Director,
1 Technical Producer, 1 Game Director, and 1 CEO.
Source: http://www.respawn.com/comp...

37 of them developed Modern Warfare 2. I'm confident Vince knows they can deliver more. Its even rumored that Titanfall DLC is to release 45 days from release. Second DLC in 120 days from release.
Source: http://me.ign.com/en/news/1...

I'm feeling ripped off. Personally, I also feel that 69 employees is enough to add more maps because they're not launching with single player or co-op.

What number of employees do you personally feel is the right size for Respawn to deliver more content than they're offering? It's just maps.

OT: I still play The Last of US Online. I love it and I'm somebody :-(, lol.

@4ShotKing Understood. I just want more bangs for my bucks. Now I want co-op if Titan Fall only launches with 14 maps. Additionally, I don't think there's enough weapons to keep my attention. Personally, I can't justify paying $60, if I believe the weapon selection(s) and maps are too small. However, I understand we don't feel the same way.

I just don't want to pay more money for DLC. Maybe,...I'm after the Premium/GOTY edition of Titan Fall, like I'm for Battlefield. I hate paying for multiplayer DLC. Single player is non-issue for me.

Personally, I cancelled Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes because I read it was only 2 hours. For Titan Fall: Only 14 maps. Only 3 Titans. Only online. Only competitive. $60. I don't know if I'm cheap or justified in feeling ripped off with Titan Fall. What do you think?

Hahaha no worries mate, glad to help out. You should bookmark that website, I always buy my games on PC there at launch. There usually 30 - 75% off at launch.
Pascalini  +   59d ago
They are not charging 60 pound are they for this without a sp? I mean most cod games have that many maps anyhow
ShadowL9  +   59d ago
I laugh at the fanboys who are disagreeing with you.

BF4 launched with ten maps, and these maps are GIANT compared to Titanfall maps, probably four + times their size.

Ghosts launched with 14 maps and 1 preorder map.

Killzone launched with ten maps and all future maps will be free, including two coming out this March.

What do all these games have in common? They have a MP and a SP and in the case of Ghosts, they even have more maps than Titanfall. If you can SOMEHOW justify less maps and content than competitors' games, please someone do so.

FlameBaitGod  +   59d ago
This is their first game as a company so.....you really expect them to have huge budgets too ?
PsylentKiller  +   59d ago
Team Fortress 2 is free and played by more people than Killzone and probably CoD. It's MP only as well. Why pay anything for Ghosts or Killzone?

Titanfall is fun that's why I'll pay $60 for it. If it used the free to play model, I would purchase items for it. The reason it's $60 is only because it is using the tradition method of selling games. This game could have easily went free to play but they prefer a different method. How is that different from any other type of game? How is it different from a SP only game?
JokesOnYou  +   59d ago
lol, @shadowL9 absolutely worst way to measure value of a game, especially a multiplayer game based on just raw # count of content/maps, sure content is important but that's a secondary consideration AFTER gameplay= Free maps for a boring game is just more boring gameplay in different locations, not a compelling reason to justify $60 over a fun game with less maps.

If I enjoy game A with 6 maps alot more than game B with 12 maps, game B still is NOT twice as much fun, NO its just a game that I don't like much with more maps. I'm still going to play game A more, just wish it had more maps, no different than a SP game you wish lasted longer, a longer SP game isn't automatically better if the game itself sucks.

14 maps is awesome, been playing Titanfall alot since yesterday. I'm hooked, if only 2 maps, limited modes and limited to 1 Titan is this much fun I can't wait Until March 11th, plus the game is no Ryse but looks very good on X1.

It's more pf a complement to Respawn that all these other games are being compared to TitanFall. You guys are so funny.
mhunterjr  +   59d ago
I'd like to see have seen a few more maps, but this is serviceable. One thing I've noticed is that it will take a little while to learn the nuances of each map. In angel city, I've learned a couple routes that will get me from end to end without touching the ground. But in fracture I'm not as mobile as some other folks seen to be.
aiBreeze  +   59d ago
To be fair, I imagine it's a lot harder to create maps around the parkour elements and far more time consuming than say making COD maps. 14 maps sounds good to me providing they all are of the same quality as say Angel City.
mhunterjr  +   59d ago
I agree with you. I say I want more maps, but that's because I arbitrarily decided I want more than 15.

If the two on display are any indication, then it will take a long time to learn those that are available at launch.
MCTJim  +   59d ago
Not to shabby if this is true. This would make me one happy individual.
lonewolfjedi  +   59d ago

FITgamer  +   59d ago
Wonder how many game modes? I may wait for price drop. Should have more maps $60. Even COD comes that many while including single player, and co-op game modes.
sammyspam  +   59d ago
I don't think anyone expected the game to launch with this many maps, I feel they would take more design time than the usual maps. Just another thing to look forward to!

Pintheshadows  +   59d ago
14 is a good number I think.
BQ32  +   59d ago
I laugh at the people thinking it should be less money because of lack of a single player. To me the best possible thing that could happen for a fun competitive shooter is drop the single player. It just take resources away from the mode that people will be enjoying 90% of their time playing. I would pay $100 for this game before I would pay $60 for most other shooters.
Pintheshadows  +   59d ago
If it has a good amount of content then full price is fine. However, if it only had the content of say Brink, full price would be a slap in the face.
Rickgrimes95  +   59d ago
I actually read somewhere a while ago that there was gonna be 18 maps wouldn't be surprised if this rumor is updated some more don't ask for a link to the 18 maps article it was a while ago but I do remember it the more maps the Better in my opinion, I got so tired of ghosts and black ops 2 because there were 10 maps that got worn out quickly

I was hoping they would use the extra time and budget from not having to do a single player campaign to make a ton of maps, but I guess not. If they did they will probably be selling them to us as DLC.
Tedakin  +   59d ago
14 maps is more than acceptable to me. Less than 10 and I'd be pissed.
