Nexon Prepping F2P Version Of Titanfall... In Asia

Remember Titanfall, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment's big-budget, multiplayer mech-vs.-humans battler from a few years back? Seems like it would be great as a F2P shooter game, right? Well, Nexon agrees with that sentiment and wants to bring a F2P Titanfall to PC... but only if you live on the other side of the Pacific.

Nexon announced the news in a press release today, with President Owen Mahoney calling Titanfall "a uniquely intense game experience" while "leveraging Nexon’s free-to-play expertise to deliver a new and engaging online game." Considering how EA's own attempts at F2P have fared, maybe that's not a bad idea.

The bad news is, F2P Titanfall will only be available in Asia, though, of course, there's always the possibility that, if it proves successful, EA and Nexon will bring it stateside. While it did decently in the West, Titanfall didn't seem to have that long-lasting impact that other major shooter titles have had, so maybe a F2P move is just what it needs to rekindle interest. Does it sound like something you'd be interested in?

Oh that's nice. Won't be buying their next title because they will just send it to Asia to be f2p. Thought they did a good job for it being their first game. Now they are going to ruin their reputation doing something like this. Yeah I will hold onto my money from now on.

So what's going to happen to those who bought the game? Honestly I don't know whether to be scared or impressed... but probably mostly scared.
This is Nexon we're talking about.
