Titanfall will feature ‘prestige’ system known as ‘Regenerating’ – 10 generation ranks

generation-titanfall

Users on NeoGAF have been making numerous discoveries over the last few days thanks to the Titanfall Beta on PC.

According to the user ‘RazorUK’, Titanfall will feature a levelling structure similar to that of Call of Duty’s ‘Prestige’ system – known in the game as Regeneration.

The user was able to obtain menu text from the beta code that suggests each generation will feature 50 levels – generation 1 being the level you start at. By choosing to regenerate your pilot, anything you have unlocked and obtained as well as challenges will be reset and wiped clean.

Once you have regenerated, the menu text suggests your Pilot will “be better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than before” – potentially allowing you to progress through levels at a quicker pace – end of match bonus based on generation level perhaps?

Max level is set to 14 in the beta files. However if we go by the level progression unlocks (last item is at level 49), Level 50 being max is likely.
There are 10 generation ranks. I believe generation 1 is what you start the game with.

Here is some of the menu text taken from the beta:

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

    Ugh. After having experienced Treyarch’s approach to prestiging in Black Ops 2, I think this is a downgrade. If prestiging isn’t worth it, I’m resorting to how fun the game is to play, which I’m hopeful it is…

      Eh, I don’t really care about rewards. I just like leveling up and having things to strive toward. That’s why I Prestige.

    • DanDustEmOff

      The whole point of prestiging was that you lose everything ad start over just for bragging rights. BTW “Treyarch’s” approach to prestiging was copied from MW3.

      You also gain experience quicker. Re-read the text

    i really thought the game will be kinda like BF4 100 LEVELS but this is great Leveling up in this game feels great and any first person shooter without leveling is boring unlike Ghosts u prestige one time only and it is so boring already

    • StrongIsland

      Agreed Ghosts is the most boring CoD ever made.

      I prefer Battlefield to COD, but prefer Prestiging to Battlefield’s 100+ levels.

      Why? Because Ranks and Unlocks don’t belong in online pvp shooters… especially ones that try to boast themselves as “competitive.”

      They belong in Free2Play games, where time is money, so you grind for stuff or you buy it. Or an MMO/RPG where ranks and unlocks are tied to the story or character progression. Neither the case for $60 AAA shooters.

      So, I prefer COD ranks, where I can just get it over with quickly, unlock everything… and ignore Prestiging and leave that for the grinders. It makes the grinding some people want an option, to an extent.

      INB4: “But I get bored without something to unlock” …someday you’re going to realize shooters just aren’t for you. Probably just caught up in current trends. Or your the kind of simpleton who gets suckers into playing for unlocks, because its been a gimmick since the beginning of gaming. The reason they flash “POINTS!” “UNLOCKED” and “LEVEL UP!” in front of your face every couple seconds is an old arcade tactic. Game may not be good, but it makes you feel good about playing it. As if you’re going good… So, you keep pumping quarters into the machine to keep going. So, if you need unlocks to keep playing, rather the gameplay is lacking, or not for you….

      Or maybe I’m just out of touch and I still prefer the competitive shooter to the casual one all about unlocks, ranks, and customizations. I prefer shooters that have do not reward those who play the most, but give everyone the same opportunity in any and every battle.

    The icons are really simple but look great. How it should be.
