Recently Steve Fukuda; A Game director working on highly anticipated title Titanfall had an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun discussing Titanfall and what we can expect from Titanfall and surprisingly; One of the things he mentioned was regarding Mod Support on PC.
In the interview he told Rock, Paper, Shotgun “Technically, nothing is off the table. It’s just a question of priorities and time and whether or not we can get to it while working on the game as a whole.” In the same interview; Fukuda stated that the structure of Titanfall and its use of Origin, the digital distribution solution from Electronic Arts (EA), means that there’s no way to modify elements of the game and still be able to get into matches. He added, “It’s very carefully tuned. It’s very tweaked and dialed in. We don’t want someone to get the wrong impression of the game if somebody, say, changes a lot of the properties. Perhaps if we come up with a form and a structure by which we can let people know, ‘Hey, this is the no-holds-barred Wild West area’, perhaps we can look into something like that.”
So by the look of it, The development team at Respawn are interested in creating a way for gamers to make their own content which can then be shared with the rest of the community. As of right now, Titanfall is currently available for Xbox Live Gold Subscribers on Xbox One and PC allowing gamers to get their hands on the shooter’s core mechanics such as wall running, controlling the titans and more. Titanfall is an online multiplayer first person shooter with story mode elements (Similar to that of Defiance) that will have 6 gamers on each team and a variety of other AI-controlled enemies, with a lot of emphasis on freedom of movement and tactics.
Titanfall is set to launch on Xbox One & PC in North America on March 11th and will be released 2 days later in the UK & Europe.
