Titanfall beta starts on February 14

What better way is there to celebrate Valentine's Day anyway?

by

The upcoming beta for Respawn Entertainment's online multiplayer game Titanfall will begin this Friday, February 14--Valentine's Day.

The Titanfall beta is offered only on Xbox One and PC (sorry Xbox 360 fans) and you can sign up for a chance to get in through the game's website. It's unclear how Respawn is deciding who gets in, though if you haven't found out by February 17, you're out of luck.

Respawn and publisher Electronic Arts have released a Titanfall beta trailer (below), which highlights some of the frenetic action you can expect from the much-anticipated futuristic shooter. Titanfall launches in full for Xbox One and PC on March 11, while the Xbox 360 version--which was created externally by Bluepoint Games--arrives two weeks later on March 25.

This year's Titanfall game is coming only to Xbox consoles and PC, but the series will be around for a "long, long time," EA said yesterday. Potential future installments could come to PlayStation or Nintendo platforms.

Pretty good but a sniperfest like a lot of the online games have become.

I just got a beta code for xbone when I signed up for pc. I don't own an xbone. And I am certainly not going to run out and buy one for beta...

I find the whole marketing and hype for this game to be a bit absurd. the whole:


"Verticle gameplay adds a new flavour to the FPS genre opening up new possibilities with double jump and wall running..."


Yet the game looks nowhere near as good as Quake or Unreal Tournament of its time.... even the titans don't look as good as the variety of vehicles in say Unreal Tournament..... infact judging from the gameplay videos they look like one trick ponies that are easily countered just by friggin jumping on one.


Yet the game is marketed as new and refreshing.... I'm sorry, its not, its cod with mechs and a throwback to old arena shooters... and a BORING theme'd version of quake/UT.


Could be fun... but limited to 6 vs 6, 3 game modes...... (of which none are really outstanding... just the Cod-type norm" ....


a fully fledged game with very little options for the player.


This is made by RESPAWN is it not? Why the hell don't they have their cool modes like old ET games? give the titans a purpose by attack/defend style map gameplay with objectives.


too much effort/tactics/teamplay for the cod generation?


boring boring boring.

I love how sony fanboys throw resolution out there. Just like they talked about how the ps3 was 4x more powerful then the 360. The games sure weren't 4x better at the end of the console's life cycle. My point being, until PS4 can produce a game that looks better than RYSE (which runs lower than 1080p) you really do not have a valid argument. :) FYI I own both and am not partial to either one. I go with what a console has shown, and the xbox one has shown superior graphics in there games thus far. I would save your resolution comments until Sony has produced a better looking game then the XBONE has. :D

Those who don`t own x1 and want to play the game can get it on pc. atleast it wont feel like a 7 years console running on 720p or patched up and up-scaled to 1080.

for me I might not buy any more EA games, unless my friends play it and I see the game to be worth the time. If I like it, I`ll wait for it to be discounted and buy it. 60$ for a game is too much, and an EA game at that.

Also For those who are scared off because OH NOES ITS EA THE BIG BAG CALAMITY WITCH OF EVIL! EA has no control over the game at all. EA Asked if they could be the publishers of the game not the people who are like, IM GONNA MAKE YOU GUYS CREATE THIS DLC 5 TO BE EXACT IN 48 HOUAHS GO YOU SODS. EA Cannot control  the development of the game, DLCs, Or put a deadline for the game to be released because Respawn is not EA's own founded studio. EA Founded Bioware,Dice and so on. They Don't own Crytek because Crytek wasnt founded by EA. So again Respawn is in full control of the game EA Just distributes it.

I never paid much attention to this game when it was first announced because it always turned into PS4 vs. Xbox One and I nearly missed it was coming to PC as well (sadly it seems the system wars over this game alone isn't close to over even though both systems have solid FPS exclusives).  After spending some time this week looking into the game it definitely seems cool, and I'm looking forward to possibly being able to try it out via the beta.

I never, ever win anything or get any sort of bonuses. I signed up, but I'll be floored if I get in.

"...but the series will be around for a "long, long time," EA said yesterday."


So the first might be great, but don`t get your hopes up for the rest of the franchise.

I look forward to trying it out when it potentially arrives to the PlayStation 4.  This game alone won't persuade me to purchase an Xbox One.


Glad to hear it is coming to PC.

in my point of view, 


This game did really got my attention so i bought XB1 and not only this game, DR3, Forza 5, Halo, quantium break ...etc

and i don't regret for getting XB1 { Cheers } :)

Note: I also have PS4 just to be clear.

I guess it looks fun for those who love to spend hours upon hours running around shooting other people. I'm not really much of an online FPS fan so the fact this game has no single-player campaign mode makes it completely unappealing to me. It's very chaotic, the screen is too cluttered when inside the mechs with overlays and health meters, map, reticules etc and the graphics are honestly not that good at all. It's kind of a hot mess actually. And I'm not just saying that as a PS4 owner. I have a 360, a PC and am going to be buying the XB1 in the spring and still don't plan on buying this game on any of them.

Again though it's just not my cup of tea, however like I said for those who live and breathe the online FPS, they should enjoy it.

I really don't see the use of a beta this close to release.

Seems like its only for the hype.

@MBirdy88  

because we're supposed to market games as old and uninspired. that's genius. why didn't anyone ever think of that?

give it a rest. you think people just like you weren't around a decade ago, whining about how quake and unreal tournament were boring and limited and blah blah blah compared to the "good old days."

don't buy it. problem solved. the world will live on.

@blueboxdoctor  When I found out it was coming to a PC, I saved $500. I probably would have bought an X1 for this game.

@Furwings  It does get old; however, from what I have seen, this game will offer a lot more in terms of combat and how you can approach it.  I look forward to giving it a try.

You forgot to add.....and millions of people will still buy it and have an absolutely amazing time playing it.

@jameston80 @Printul_Noptii  oh nope not at all but if you have played games like Killzone 2, CoD, Hawken, Crysis 2-3 you pretty much played this. The only real cool thing that kept my attention is that you can jump walls and run them along like you could in mirrors edge for example but EA is hyping up this game way too much for its own good. And if you really want to play this game get a decent graphics card and play it on the PC ! But then again why would you when you have played all the above already, cheers

@DaN_WiL you should be very worried this isn't a server stress test its beta testing they just did alpha build testing in January.  Most games due beta testing then launch 3 or more months later after they get the bugs out titan fall will have a week before it goes gold to launch

@_Silent_Jay_ @garrybubba@Furwings@2Black2Strong This whole reaction to a fairly innocuous comment is a bit much.  Furwings stated his opinion.  How is that wrong?  Or rude?  Or incite anger?  He didn't even insult people who do like this type of game.  Just because some very loud people decide they don't like his opinion, doesn't mean he doesn't have a right to say it.

@garrybubba @Furwings@2Black2StrongRudeness?  Rudeness is wading into a conversation that you have no interest in to say that you have no interest in it.  If you haven't got anything to add, then nobody really cares, and it's well within the rights of those involved to say as much.  Free speech doesn't mean you can say what you want without consequence, it just means that nobody will arrest you for it.

@Furwings @2Black2Strong well said, you have every right to voice your opinions on a game even if you don't like it.


You handled the complete rudeness of that user very well.

@2Black2Strong @Furwings  Ok great then. Enjoy Titanfall, like I said if it's up your alley you'll probably enjoy the hell out of it. I was merely stating I feel it's over hyped and it's also not my bag. To each their own.

@2Black2Strong @Furwings  Again, did you miss taking your meds this morning or something? I only commented on this article because I believe this game is massively over hyped for what it is.

@Furwings This idiot starts his statement with "I guess it looks fun for those who love to spend hours upon hours running around shooting other people. I'm not really much of an online FPS fan " in a TITANFALL comment section. Get the fuck outta here you piece of shit troll. Point is...WHY ARE YOU EVEN HERE?
