Titanfall supports a maximum of 6 vs 6 players online


Well here's some big news on one of the year's most anticipated games. Titanfall only supports a maximum of 6 vs 6 players during online play.


Answering a fan query on Twitter, Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella confirmed the news, saying that this, "turned out to be the best balance with AI for us."

So how do you fill a map that only has twelve players in it? With AI soldiers. Zampella didn’t confirm exactly how many AI soldiers would be included, but did say it'd be "enough to make it fun," before adding that it's the players who are "the real threat".

Zampella also added that every player can have a Titan with them, which he says will make firefights feel busy

"It is incredibly fun, we did a lot if testing. It is all about what we found most fun," Zampella concluded.

Titanfall is an online only game and will therefore not include a campaign. 

The game is due for release in March on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, you can pre-order below.

Surely this has to be some sort of joke right?

I was originally also disappointed to discover this was not coming to PS4. Now that I discover it's online only I couldn't care less - I know I am in the minority, but online gaming does not do it for me at all. Even so, six seems a small number for an exclusive, next gen game, even to me!

Might be OK, Star Wars Battlefront had a similar set up and that was a lot of fun, but that was down to technical limitations which no longer exist, they should be able to do better than that now though.

I don't have a problem with online only (e.g. Destiny) but imo this is just a new Call o' Doody with Mechs. It's about time a proper Battletech/Mech Warrior mas made

Going from xbox to ps4 this is one of the games I will miss but at least it'll save me the embarrassment of being out scored by my bot team mate, I'm sure it will still be great tho.

From what I have heard it was 12v12 at eurogamer so presume the game was struggling with that many players so they reduced it to 6v6 to make sure it runs smooth. I think we will see a lot of multiplayer only games this gen pretty sure Garden Warfare is online only.

I do think it's wrong making online/multiplayer only games. What about the people that that can't/don't want to be online, or do they not matter?

Well from Microsofts original announcement about the One they didnt really care about people that couldnt be online.

What did happen to the guy that said "we have an offline machine, it's called the 360" - Oh yeah, fired! Still, new gen game, delayed, no offline, reduced player count - not looking too good to me

This game is heavily cloud powered right? So the powah of da cloud isn't really that great. The problem is, alot of the CoD crowd will simply look at that figure and say meh, without even trying it.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I look at it and think "CoD + Mechs ... meh"

This is one Xbox ONE game that does not take my fancy. After buying the huge Steel Battalion game for Xbox, and being disappointed with it, I have been forever put off Mech games. This is also coming to PC anyway, so if the PC can't handle it then neither would the PS4. Star Wars Battlefront is what I am waiting for. If the latest Battlefront can have 64 vs 64 then so should SW Battlefront.

The best Mech game I found on PC was Mech Warrior. I also played quite a bit of the full size version (BattleTech) in the London, Trocadero when I worked there

I don't see the issue really, some games are better with less and I feel I will have to play it first to decide.

Halo, COD 4 etc were some of the best multiplayer games with less players. More doesn't mean better. Considering only 4 Mechs will be in each map, it means people will have more chance to use them too. If they included more players, you'd never get a shot of the mech ever.
JoeToots's avatar

But with how technology advances Whyte you come to expect bigger multiplayer, Plus the way it has been advertised it is portraying it as being chaotic and i can't see 6v6 being that.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

Bigger isn't always better. It's come to be a common complaint that next gen should be 'bigger' when it should just be more advanced. Titanfall is pushing a system and looks incredibley fun, if it is at it's more fun at 6x6, then fair do's. And Chaotic with Mechs, Bots and fast paced movement is easily possible with 6x6.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
