The Titanfall Official Site now has an FAQ section will details the Season Pass for Titanfall, out next week for Xbox One and Windows PC, March 11th for US and 14th for UK and Europe. The Xbox 360 version is due out on Marh 25th in US and 28th in UK/Europe
The FAQ explains how the season pass will work for Xbox consoles. If you buy the season pass for Xbox 360 you will only get content for the Xbox 360, if you move up to an Xbox One you would need to buy the Season Pass again for an Xbox One version of Titanfall.
No details other then Map Packs are included in the Season Pass, but it will be a saving if you get the pass rather then buying the DLC as and when it comes out. The retailer GAME have confirmed the price of the Season Pass as £19.99
Below is the FAQ from the site, with questions and answers:
After a leak earlier today by GAME, Rocksteady and WB Games have officially announced ‘Arkham: Knight’ for Xbox One.In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect.

At present, the ‘optical out’ port on the new console only supports two-channel stereo sound – an odd omission considering 5.1 optical sound has been a standard feature on Microsoft and Sony’s console’s (and most modern AV entertainment devices) since the original Xbox era.
Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello explained ahead of the console’s November release that 5.1 optical sound features were delayed beyond launch due to “a [software] scheduling issue”.
The addition of true 5.1 Dolby surround is especially good news for users with optical-only home cinema setups, or those with gaming headsets, which typically use optical sound.
The next chapter in the Trials series is heading for Xbox 360 and Xbox One on April 16th. Trials Fusion from Red Lynx and published by Ubisoft, follows in the footsteps of Trials HD and Trials Evolution.
Coming with visual breakthroughs, the arrival of FMX tricks, and taking place in a high-tech and futuristic world, Trials Fusion goes even beyond what you knew about Trials and its crazy gameplay!
After a delay, from March 11th Xbox One users will finally be able to stream their gameplay to Twitch, as its App will get an update bringing new features to the One.
Up to now, all users could do was spectate other people’s streams on Twitch and use the Xbox One Upload to record and share gameplay clips. This update is yet another one to tie in with the release of Titanfall on March 14th, theFPS giant that Microsoft is pretty much using to relaunch the Xbox One console. The update will also include chat features and the ability for users to broadcast as they stream with Xbox One’s Kinect.
Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft Vice President, said of the news:
“This will open up the social aspect of Xbox One in a new way, the community of Twitch is huge, and this allows us to type into that, and frankly do something that’s never been done before on consoles. You’ll be able to broadcast to any device and consume anyone’s broadcast from any device. It’s a console experience unique to the Xbox One.”
This will come as good news for those who have held out on picking up an Xbox One until Titanfall and price drop but so soon after launch has already been seen on social media as very harsh to those who bought an Xbox One on launch and just after.
