All post-release Titanfall 2 content will be made available to players free of charge, says developer Respawn.
In a post on the game's official site, the company stated that "all maps & modes will be free in Titanfall 2 Multiplayer."
"Once you’ve purchased Titanfall 2," the post reads, "your investment includes a full single player campaign, the full multiplayer maps and modes, and long-term support with no hidden costs."
The game will not even sport a season pass; pre-orders will enable early access to the game by three days, but no additional content will be granted.
Respawn is framing the move as a differentiating factor from its competition, but it also marks a move away from the original Titanfall's post-release model, which included a US$25 season pass, comprised of three map packs, whose content eventually ended up free for all anyway.
At the time, the original's post-release strategy was considered a major mark against the game; similar strategies in other games are likewise lambasted for splitting player communities and extracting more money from players.
It is worth noting that the post does not rule out paid single-player DLC; the game will also be supported by microtransactions for cosmetic in-game items.
Titanfall 2 is out today, and can be purchased from Mighty Ape.
