Titanfall is set to add an in-game currency that you can use to buy Burn Cards and Titan Insignias.
An update will introduce the Black Market, where you can get access to additional customisation options for your Titan alongside the game-changing Burn Cards. The Burn Cards will be sold in packs, each focused on a specific theme to enable you to choose what type you need. XP boost, Pilot and Titan advantages are all mentioned, with the hope being this change will enable you to pick cards that suit your play style.
In terms of how you'll earn credits to buy these packs, fulfilling a number of different criteria will see you awarded with money to spend. Winning a match, completing a match and having your first victory of the day will all see you pick up points, as will completing daily challenges and selling Burn Cards you don't want. Additionally, once you hit level 50 a percentage of earned XP will be converted to credits.
The Black Market will be available once you hit level 11 and have opened the Burn Card menu. According to Respawn this is just the first step to a variety of new items in the future. Those worried that this may lead to a slipper slope, never fear. Designer David Shaver promised the studio will never introduce them and the only way to obtain credits will be by playing the game.
