Titanfall’s soon to arrive update five is coming with a brand new black market and an in-game currency system.
The new black market will let players buy and sell burn cards and buy new decals for their Titans with in-game credits. Not to worry, the game isn’t becoming a paymium travesty. The ingame credits are earned through playing the game and they won’t be available through microstransactions, said designer David Shaver in a blog post.
“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!” Shaver wrote.
The patch notes also show the game is introducing daily challenges and will be rotating the campaign game mode in with the other game modes.
