A free-to-play Titanfall game is coming to Asia

Developer Nexon is partnering with EA Games to develop and publish Titanfall Online in asian territories.

EA Games has announced Titanfall Online, a free-to-play version of the popular 2014 shooter coming exclusively to PC in asian territories.

Titanfall Online will be developed by Nexon, a studio also responsible for free-to-play versions of other popular titles such as FIFA and Counter Strike.

The announcement of Titanfall Online didn’t come with any game details or a potential launch window, however Nexon did reveal that the game will be a solid free-to-play conversion of the Xbox One and PC title.

“We look forward to working with the talented teams at Respawn and EA and leveraging Nexon's free-to-play expertise to deliver a new and engaging online game based on Titanfall to the Asian market," Nexon president and CEO Owen Mahoney said in a prepared statement.

This isn’t the first time a popular shooter has received the free-to-play treatment in Asia. Call of Duty Online was released in January 2013 by Activision Shanghai and Raven Software.

The free-to-play rendition of the shooter juggernaut combines a number of maps, weapons and models from previous games, throwing in some freemium options for good measure.

It’s a perfectly reasonably substitute for the acclaimed multiplayer mode, but you may have to jump through a few tedious hoops if you want to play it in the UK.

Earlier this year it was also announced that Titanfall 2 is in development. The untitled sequel was confirmed by Respawn CEO and founder Vince Zampella back in March.

So we're working on a sequel. No official name yet, but we're working on that," Zampella said at the time. "That's the main focus but we're starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too. Small, exploratory, taking it slow!”

Titanfall 2 will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
