Titanfall Introducing Black Market Credits

By Jeremy Peel | PCGamesN Respawn are currently turning the Titanfall community on to the idea of ‘black market’ currency, which is a funny thing to call a developer-designed point system. Talk to Blizzard: they’ll tell you all about real black markets. In any case, players will soon be able to earn in-game cash by completing challenges or selling unloved burn cards. But don’t call it a microtransaction system: there’ll be no means of acquiring ‘black market’ money with real-life debit cards.
