Titanfall: “good news” coming regarding Australian servers

Monday, 10 March 2014 05:24 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Titanfall may be getting local server support in Australia after all, according to a not-very-mysterious comment from Respawn Entertainment boss Vince Zampella.


Responding to a fan query on Twitter, Zampella all but confirmed Australians can expect local server support.

“We’ll have good news soon for Aussies,” Zampella said.

As a multiplayer-only title, Titanfall naturally requires reliable network performance to function. Although geographically distant servers aren’t the end of the world, for isolated nations like Australia and New Zealand, having servers on the same continental shelf can make a huge difference.

EA has reportedly cancelled Titanfall in South Africa as local Internet infrastructure isn’t up to snuff.

Titanfall arrives on PC and Xbox One on March 11 in North America, on March 13 in Europe and Australia, and on March 14 in the UK. The Xbox 360 version will follow at the end of the month.

Thanks, Ausgamers.
