Respawn Entertainment this month said EA Inc.’s Titanfall for Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC will not include local multiplayer.
The developer this month said split-screen multiplayer will not be an option in the final build.
Titanfall, to be sold Mar. 11, will be sold in a standard edition at $59.99 and a Collector’s Edition SKU that includes an 18-inch Atlus Titan Statue with battery-powered LED lighting, 190-page art book, and Atlas Titan schematic poster at $249.99.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall will include ground and mech combat. The title will include an online-only multiplayer mode.
The Xbox One SKU is said to utilize cloud computing resources to offload physics and AI routines.
The title will utilize cloud technology to run dedicated servers for multiplayer sessions. The technology can allow the developers to scale task work up and down depending on the number of users, or upload new programs for deployment.
The final game will utilize a modified version of Valve Corp.’s Source Engine to maintain a 60 frames-per-second fidelity.
