‘Titanfall’ Prestige Mode Found in Beta, Reportedly Called ‘Generations’

Published 6 months ago by

Titanfall Prestige Generations

Ever since its announcement, amongst all the excitement for its eventual release, there have also been many who have denounced Titanfall as simply being Call of Duty with mechs. Despite the fact that the recent beta has proven it to be much more than a simple COD clone, the assumptions will likely persist. As per the latest beta-related discovery, more fuel may have just been added that the fire.

One of the features that gamers have come to associate with the progression of the Call of Duty multiplayer is the ability to prestige upon reaching the max level and start all over again with an emblem that signifies their bragging rights. According to a user on NeoGAF, a string of text was found in the beta’s code that seems to lend credence to the inclusion of a prestige mode in Titanfall. If true, it appears Titanfall’s version of Prestige will be called “Generations” and restarting the cycle referred to as “regenerating.”

The NeoGAF post in question states that, considering the final unlockable (check out the rumored list) will reportedly be obtained at level 49, it is a safe assumption that level 50 will be the level cap. Upon looking at some of the data-mined menu text in the beta, it looks as though players will then have the option to “regenerate.” The data-mined text can be found below.

“Take me to generation [next level].

Warning! You will lose all that you have unlocked and be reset to level 1. All challenges will be reset.

Years of battle have taken their toll. We can regenerate you… at a cost.
Your body can be restored. But your memory and your experience…all will be lost.
When you awaken you will respawn a [next level] generation Pilot.
You will be better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than before.

Are you sure?
I’m sure

Are you really sure?
Yes positive!

Would you like to go to the next gen?
Take me to next gen!

Generation numerics:
1st
2nd
3rd
4th
5th
6th
7th
8th
9th
10th”

If this information is legitimate and it is assumed that the first generation is what a player starts at, then it looks as though players will be able to prestige nine times before reaching the game’s hard cap. While this will no doubt lead to further comparisons between Titanfall and Call of Duty, the inclusion of a prestige mode of sorts has almost become a necessity for any game seeking longevity. Unfortunately, it’s unclear how close to the traditional Prestige system this new Generations option might be – i.e. is it a full wipe of progress or do some elements carry over?

Included in another NeoGAF post, RazorUK, the user in question also posted a series of images that supposedly signify the different levels of prestige. They number all the way up to ten, but do not include the number one. This lends further credence to both the data-mined string of text and the assumption that the 1st Generation will correspond to a fresh player who has yet to prestige.

With the statement that Respawn Entertainment is trying to make Titanfall an “inclusive” experience, this news of a prestige mode doesn’t seem too far off of the truth. It still remains to be seen whether these claims have any legitimacy, but for anyone who has delved into the world of multiplayer shooters in the past few years there are certain expectations that have been set in place.

Since the game is nearing its highly-anticipated release, it won’t be long before gamers know the truth. Until then though, it never hurts to brush up on your skills with tips and tricks that could give you the edge on the competition as well as check out our answers to the players’ questions.

Do you think Titanfall will in fact implement a prestige mode? Do you ever bother with prestige or would you rather retain your unlocked skills?

  1. I’ve never liked the prestige mode, but I know some people do. I just hope it won’t be required to unlock everything like it was in Black Ops 2. Let us who don’t want to do it be able to unlock everything and save the prestige mode for bragging rights.

    • isnt unlocking everything how u earn those bragging rights?

      This game is sounding more and more like a CoD with a futuristic look and mechs.. at least they finally dropped the zombies… for now

      • A lot of people earned bragging rights with “hey look, I prestiged ten times, I’m so awesome.” Meanwhile, I’d be so happy if I could unlock all the weapons without having to start over as a dirty peasant every time I wanted to try a different class.

        • that would be nice but the people who “earned” there place with that weapon would bitch and complain.

          • People are gonna bitch and complain no matter what you do.

  2. up to I looked at the paycheck which said $7249 , I didnt believe …that…my mom in-law had been truley receiving money part-time on there computar. . there aunt has been doing this for only about nineteen months and resantly cleard the debts on their appartment and purchased a gorgeous volvo . see this page………..http://x.co/3wVg4
