EA opens Titanfall beta registration

EA opens Titanfall beta registration

EA's futuristic multi-player mech battler Titanfall is now accepting sign-ups from Windows and Xbox One gamers for its limited beta.

EA has opened sign-ups for the Windows and Xbox One beta tests of Titanfall, its upcoming sci-fi shooter, with the window for applications closing on Friday.

Eager to iron out any possible bugs in the multiplayer portion of the game - if only to prevent further investor backlash - EA is offering a small subset of the general public a chance to try out a small portion of the game ahead of its official launch in March. Open to Xbox One and Windows PC owners with an Origin account - Xbox 360 gamers being, for some reason likely related to the last-minute delay on that platform's release of the game, excluded - an opportunity to get in some early practice.

The beta trial, open to gamers world-wide providing they've got at least a passing knowledge of the English language, includes three of the game's multi-player modes: Attrition, Hardpoint Domination and Last Titan Standing. Attrition and Last Titan Standing, EA explained in its announcement, are variants of team deathmatch, while Hardpoint Domination is a land-grab variant.

The sign-up page is live now, and will continue to accept applications until Friday. Those lucky enough to be selected will be notified on the 17th of February, when the beta formally begins. EA has not yet indicated when the beta period will end, but it is likely to last right through to the official launch of the game for the Xbox One and Windows platforms on the 11th of March.

A few more details regarding the beta are available on the official website.

Typical EA releasing a game prematurely, can they not even wait 'till it's reached beta?

Whoops - wishing my life away, there. That should, of course, read the 17th of February. Fixed, ta!

Just signed up - I'm hoping that this game will be as good as it's being made out to be. I'm a little worried that it'll be a bit of a one trick pony though - anyone else think the same?

As it's an EA game I'm finding it hard to think they will treat it any differently than their other titles.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I have a hell of a lot more hope for this game than the inevitable next call of doody game but I'm hoping there'll be something more than just the novelty of stomping around in a titan which could get old after a few minutes...

Signed up waiting for the email now.

Actually looking forward to this game since EA has not had any input in to the games design etc.

Initially I was looking forward to this game, but they they said something about multi player being on 5/6 vs 5/6 which as a battlefield vet, seems very low to me. I might enjoy it though so lets hope I get into beta to see if I enjoy it as well as catch a few early bugs

Woo I've been selected to take part... in the xbox one version?? I swear somewhere it said what platform you'd be playing on, bit pointless for me as I don't even have a one yet (waiting for Halo for that).
