Titanfall is about to get a major shakeup. On July 31, Respawn Entertainment will add The Black Market to Titanfall and with it, in-game currency.
Players can access The Black Market starting at level 11 and buy Burn Card packs and Insignia’s with in-game credits. These Burn card packs will contain a random set of cards based on a specific theme. A few examples include time boost packs, weapon packs and Titan packs. Check out the image below for a look at all the different kinds of packs you can buy.
Introducing an in-game currency is sure to cause a bit of controversy. Titanfall designer David Shaver is jumping in front of any potential push back and promises the introduction of an in-game currency system will not eventually lead to a micro-transaction system.
“With the introduction of an in-game currency, some may worry that the next step is that we will let players spend real-world money to get an edge in the game. We have stated several times that Titanfall will not have micro-transactions. Fear not, for we plan to keep that promise – NO MICROTRANSACTIONS! The only way to get Credits is by playing the game!”
There you have it. Respawn says a micro-transaction system will never come to Titanfall.
How will you earn the in-game currency? Completing and winning matches, daily challenges and selling burn cards. Plus, a percentage of XP at level 50 will be converted into credits.
This new system along with Titanfall’s second map pack, Frontier’s Edge, will go live on July 31.
