cold just for stupid amount of space inserted into main add.


​Serious? Seems to be a bug with the app if you was being genuine.
EA is basically the only gaming company that makes itself look worse than Konami.
This game is already feeling stale, I don't think the premium content will be worth the extra. That said it's a good price for the Ultimate Edition, although if I were considering it, I'd leave out the deluxe content and get base game and premium for £63 after the discount code
cold just for stupid amount of space inserted into main add.
£105 for a digital is crazy. £75 is still ridiculous. meh going to wait till it drop to £40 with season pass

dumb question, does it come with the game?
No, it's just the 'season pass' for the four upcoming expansion packs.

Eek! I thought for this price it would be the game as well! Very few PC games hold their value like this, so I guess it is a sign of what a success the game is :)
Add me on Origin if you want (_;)

"To use this, you must have the game:
Titanfall™ Deluxe Edition"
Initially appears odd - must own the complete edition (which contains the season pass) to get the season pass.

But EA retired the core game Titanfall on its own, and replaced it with the Deluxe Edition. The free season pass upgrade is then aimed at people who originally bought just the core game, while new players will only be able to buy the complete edition, unless going via key sites which may still have Titanfall on its own.

EDIT - 30 seconds searching later.
So you can pay EA £14.99 to buy Titanfall Deluxe Edition from their store
OR
cdkeys currently sell Titanfall core game for £3.99, and Origin have either the season pass, or the expansions individually for free.

Great game which is worth every penny.

Is it better than NFS most wanted 2012?
Does this game have wheel support? recently picked up a g29 and would like to give it a go with this

You play this for 'free' as it is in the EA Access vault. Costs £3.99 a month, a month is enough time to complete the game and you get to play other games in the vault and games like BF1 for 10 hours.

i have heard that this one is worse than oroginal and not worth more than £5. if u desperate for it its ok price I guess.

Gamerofgames - you probably have something like the intel HD5600 integrated graphics card in which case you will not be able to run it well at all - see what the HD5600 can do below at various resolutions:- scroll down to Dragon Age - you need 30fps to make it playable at the very least.

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-5600.125595.0.html



Thanks but i think ive decided to go with it. It looks like it can run my graphics card above 30fps on the lower resolution.

Ive got a laptop with an i7 processor but integrated graphics card. Would i be able to play this at a steady frame rate at a lower resolution? Ive always been tempted to get this game...
Which integrated graphics card?
Intel integrated graphics
That's like asking if an Nvidia graphics card will run it. What is the i7 processor model? You can find it in "System" on windows.
Ok so i have the i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHZ and a 64 bit operating system.
That CPU has Intel HD Graphics 530. Minimum required GPU is:
Nvidia - 8800 GT
AMD - Radeon HD 4870

According to this your integrated graphics is equivalent to:
Nvidia - 8800 Ultra, 9800 GTX, 9800 GTX+, GTS 250, GTS 450
AMD - HD 3870 X2, 4850, 5750, 6750, 7750 (DDR3), R7 250 (DDR3)

So it should work OK but be prepared to lower the graphics settings.

How do you use the VPN to buy from Korea ?
+1
anyone have a guide on doing this ?
Download this: http://www.vpngate.net/en/download.aspx. Install it and open, then select VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers, choose South Korea (Republic of Korea) and connect. Then go to Origin and buy from there. A small international fee may apply depending on your bank.
I was able to browse S Korean site, order and get to Credit Card screen. You can choose UK and put your Postcode in but it could not process any of my credit cards. I just get an error message. Pity they don't support Paypal like the Mexico site. Any ideas????
Try saving your card on Origin without the VPN, then using the VPN later with the card details saved.

Yes good thinking that worked.
Here is the direct URL to the English language page Link
I used Hola plugin for Chrome and turned off adblocker. It was a bit tricky to login to my Origin account as the pop-up did not refresh so I just closed Chrome, relaunched then popped the URL above in. Once it loaded I was logged in. Purchase from there was straightforward. Should cost me around £22 inc charges. Downloading now.
Thanks !

Stupid bank cards with international fees, wanted BF1 but will end up close to 24 quid with exchange rates and fees :(
There are credit cards that don't charge you anything at all. It's worth getting one just for holidays. http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/overseas-card-charges
I have the Platinum Post Office and Santander Zero(santander has a better web and mobile app). Neither charge you any extra for foreign purchases. It's just the spot rate conversion for the amount of your purchase. Both are free so no monthly or annual charge.
Will try get one for next time, no way of doing it cheaper today though :(
You could try the Singapore store that someone mentioned accepts paypal. I never use paypal's conversion but it may be better than the extortionate rate some UK banks charge.

Ended up going through revolut, cost me 21.58 all together for bf1 better than my bank at least anyway, few quid more than everyone else here but ah well

How on earth can anyone judge it after 20 minutes?! That's probably not even enough to do the tutorial section which shows nothing of the proper game...
true i usually give games alot longer but sometimes i just know im not gna like a game, not to mention there are only 4k people online when i was on which isnt alot. bad port as well only has an option for 1080p nothing higher & the game i played people were just jumping round like they did on cod and camping the rooftops.
Wonder will they make another one. Sounds like ea might not wanna risk it but maybe they have no choice because it would be a risk to do another new game to compete with cod too.
well from what iv'e read so far dev's say its to early to know if there will be a titanfall 3 however sales were apparently only a quarter of what the first game had so id be surprised if there was. i kinda got bored with the whole run around as fast as u can and jump around like an idiot shooters tho tbh, prefer games like rainbow 6 where u actually have to be careful and think about things

Yep I agree I reckon the idiot shooter thing is in the way out. I feel overwatch has had a massive impact on cod and the like. That's just going by the kids up till 3am playing overwatch and not cod any more :p
Well that sucks, on Origin i entered the promo code but it didn't have an 'Apply' button so i assumed it would auto apply, clicked buy and it charged me £33, poo.

It is 'coming soon' still. I would have thought they would release the Rogue One DLC before they stick it on Access. As Deeco says, it isn't free but part of the £3.99 monthly sub.
Um, it's not on Origin Access...
Not really 'free' is it...
it is not showing up as free on EA access when i click on the link?
When I have started planning the DLCs maps there were only 10-15 people online. I usually go back to Battlefront when Star Wars nostalgia hits but it doesn't stand a chance against Battlefield 1.

yep looks like they've blocked the code working on bioware points now
manx21
How did you manage to do this? Origin keeps saying the Bioware Points are not eligible for the Promo Code on mine

That's odd. It worked straight away for me on the origin app. I went to the game page then selected dlc/extras where it shows all the add ons then selected one it said I needed bioware points. Selected a bio ware points package for example 1600 bioware points went through the checkout until I could add the promo code and it took the 50% off each time. The only thing I can think of is that they've realised this and removed it. Try it this way if you can and let me know if it's still working.
loved it at original release with controller support on console. tried it many years later on PC and it didn't even have controller support.

felt dated anyhow but will be getting the new one.

It's ridiculous how Bioware/EA have not released a GOTY/Difinitive Edition with all DLC bundled in one complete package.
I refuse to buy it on PC until they do that at the very least.
grrrrr, that'll show them :p
I have the game on PS3, think I might just dust that off and play it since citadel's £4.79 on sale just now. I think it's stupid you can't just buy the DLC on origin with actual money rather than needing bioware points.

origin logoCompany History of Origin

Electronic Arts is one of the biggest names in gaming, and are the software firm responsible for huge titles like FIFA, Need for Speed and the Sims. Origin is the company's online sales platform and the best place to download any of EA's latest games. The platform has been around in some form since 2005, but has been known as Origin since 2011, when it was re-launched to distribute the Battlefield Expansion Pack. Now it is the easiest way to download new PC releases and add-ons for EA’s titles.

All of EA’s games can be downloaded at the Origin online shop at www.origin.com. The Origin platform needs to be downloaded onto your Mac or PC before you can use the service.

Ordering at Origin.com

To make a purchase online, all customers need to create an Origin Account. You just need to enter a few details and choose whether to receive the Origin Newsletter or not. Now you can complete your purchase as normal. The Origin software will be downloaded with your first purchase or separately at the download page.

Buying on Origin

Origin’s Loyalty Scheme

Origin Access is a membership only service that provides access to The Vault – a collection of games that can be played as much as you want – for a monthly amount. Members can also play upcoming EA games before they are released to the public and receive an automatic discount on new games, pre-orders, FIFA points and expansion packs.

Origin Access also takes the form of a social network, allowing members to interact with each other at the EA Access board. You can track what your contacts have purchased and what they are playing, exchange tips and seek support from EA staff.

Product categories at Origin.com

The Origin online store stocks the following product categories:

  • PC Games – This is the core of the Origin product range. PC games are divided into: action titles, adventures, MMO, online, puzzle, racing, RPG, shooter, simulation, sports games and strategy titles.
  • Free games – You can also download a selection of free games by EA. These include full versions, trials or demos and betas of popular titles.
  • Mac Games – Origin also stocks selected titles for the Apple Mac. This includes popular titles like the Sims, Sim City and RPGs like Dragon Age.

origin game fifa

When shopping on the Origin store, customers can filter out their results. Products can be filtered by genre, price point, franchise, availability, rating, publisher, developer, number of players and language. So finding the title you want should be easy.

Origin is not exclusively a platform for games by Electronic Arts. Other brands are represented on the site, including:

  • Capcom
  • Codemasters
  • Focus Home Interactive
  • Paradox Interactive
  • Ubisoft
  • Nordic Games
  • Deep Silver

Sales at Origin.com

The Deals section is the best place to look for Origin’s current reductions, with a wide range of titles under £5, £10 and £20 to choose from, as well as on the house titles.

Every November, Origin also takes part in the Black Friday retail event, which kick starts the festive shopping season. In the past, Origin have actually jumped the gun, announcing their Black Friday deals a few days earlier than other gaming retailers, so keep your eyes peeled before the day itself.

Payment Methods on Origin.com

Payment methods supported by Origin include: VISA, Mastercard, JCB, American Express, Paysafecard, PayPal, Discover Card, Ukash, EA Cash Card and the EA Wallet.

Shipping Options from Origin.com

All Origin products are downloadable and nothing is sent via post. To download games, all you need to do is install the Origin software. You can shop via that software itself or head to the website.

All games will be downloaded into your own My Games library on your computer. In some cases, it might be necessary to customise your Origin account to ensure that payments are not made by family members. In situations like this, you can securely save your payment information.

To make your payments secure, you need to uncheck the “save payment” tab on the checkout page. Whenever you make a purchase the system will request your card details, instead of automating the payments process.

Returning Items to Origin

Origin offers full refunds on all titles downloaded from their system under their Great Game Guarantee.

However, shoppers should be aware that not all Origin stocked titles are covered by the guarantee. Not all third party suppliers have chosen to participate. At the checkout, you can see whether your product is covered or not.

You can return any item and claim a full refund, but you must do so up to 24 hours after first launching the game, or within 7 days of making the purchase.

  1. To request a refund, head to the “order history” section of your Origin Account.
  2. Select “Request a Refund” next to the product in question.
  3. Now, complete the Refund Request Form and press “Submit”.
  4. Within 48 hours, Origin will get back to you and a refund should be provided within 10 days.
