Another sizable update is coming to Titanfall at the end of this month, just ahead of the second DLC map pack. This marks the fifth major update since the game launched back in March. Aside from updates to the PC version to squash several well-known bugs and add support for multiple GPUs, we’re seeing even more post-launch feature implementation from Respawn.
This time it comes in the form of a “black-market currency system” that allows users to sell their unwanted burn cards. The currency can also be earned through completing matches, and will be available in excess after hitting level 50, as some of the XP that would’ve been earned after reaching max level will be converted to currency. You can also stockpile currency through the new daily challenges, which are objectives that will be swapped out every day and reward you for their successful completion.
So what can you do with this currency? You can buy burn cards you actually want via the new in-game market, as well as new titan insignias that will only be available in the market. The cards will come in themed packs so you have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting, even though you can’t explicitly see the cards when you buy them.
Finally, Respawn addressed the concern that this currency system might pave the way for microtransactions in the future. They again made it clear that microtransactions will never come to Titanfall, just as they promised long ago.
Check out the shots below for a quick preview of the black-market and currency system in action.
