Titanfall: Here is exactly when you can start playing tonight

Electronic Arts' much-anticipated multiplayer shooter comes to Xbox One and PC tomorrow; here's a breakdown of exactly when you can jump in.

The wait for Respawn Entertainment's much-anticipated multiplayer shooter Titanfall is nearly over. One of 2014's biggest games comes to Xbox One and PC beginning tomorrow, and now Respawn has published a comprehensive list of when, exactly, you'll be able to start playing.

Have you called in sick yet?

The below information is for digital copies of Titanfall for Xbox One and PC. If you got your hands on an early copy of the game, go ahead and play right now, as Respawn will not ban you for early play (at least if you have a legitimate copy). Pre-loading for the PC version of Titanfall began last week. The install size is around 50GB.

Hrm, thinking this is going to be an accidental bomb in the making... already been another article about XBL having some serious issues and many not able to sign in.  To go along with that, the flood gates are going to open and many are going to pack into a LIMIT of 6vs6... can just imagine all the instances spawning and popping about... might be quite the bottleneck, just wonder if it'll pop the cork, hehe. >_<


Of course, I'm also reminded a tad of the initial launch of Defiance (that was kind of rickety too)... at least Defiance didn't have a 6vs6 limit to add to the bottleneck I suppose. :P

It's saying I can play it now on PC. It has been saying that since 9:00. It was also saying I could play it at 9 all day today? What's up with that.

Chances your server farm will be totally overwhelmed half an hour after start and for at least a day afterward: 93%

Good for gaming! This generation needed something like this. Otherwise it was just bland launch stuff. I hope this is the first shot in what stands to be a long and fun adventure for gaming.

The update brought to you by EA.

People have already given it user reviews equating to a 5.7 ...considering the game isn't out yet that's just pathetic.

12am EST for NA on PC?? Hope it's not a typo, I thought I had to wait until 3am like on Xbox1! Good news!

Sucks that they aren't doing the schedule the same for all platforms...PC players get to play a full 3 hours before XB1 players. Glad I got it on PC.

I love when good games come out because somebody somewhere has to get so bent out of shape to prove how crappy it is.  There will never, ever, ever, be a game that makes everyone happy.  EVER!!............  Some people like the Wii, I for one, do not.  Some like MMOs, I for one, do not.  Do I think they are crappy?  No......they are just not what I enjoy as a gamer.  All in all, it only matters what you as an individual likes.  


P.S.  I'm only writing this because the majority of responses are all about whining.  If you wrote a legitimate response, thank you.  I figured we needed a little more.  May the fonz be with you.

The first rule of Titanfall is that you do not stop talking about Titanfall!

The Xbox 360 version will be exactly the same as the Xbox One version. The ONLY difference will be graphics will be sharper on the Xbox One. In two weeks the party will be on the 360, because right now 3 million people own Xbox Ones and 79 million people own 360s. I have heard and read that people that have Xbox Ones saying they are going to buy both copies, so they can play with their friends, as most of them will be playing Titanfall on the 360. Consider that before you drop $560 to play one game.

Everyone form Austria just go to Settings > language and Region  and change  Region to US to buy the game tomorrow already, also way cheaper

so does this mean for us east coasters who get the game at a midnight launch we cant play the game until 3 am!?? WTF i hope not. Someone please clarify.

Gamespot gave Titanfall a 9.....so like I said before.....it's after the bribe.

Hope the 360 version is fun. Don't need to spend 500 dollars one game.

@Link3301  restart origin, the "play" button will not be greyed out anymore. Then press "Play" and the game will open. In the game, press play. Then, get stuck at "Initializing" for 30 minutes and be unable to play like I am :P

@reBOOT2099  I saw the Xbox One time for NA and just about cursed a storm off in my office at work...and then I saw the Origin PC and praised the flying spaghetti monster instead!

reBOOT2099

@McGregor  Yes, and on top of that, XB1 players who bought it digitally can't pre-load, so they have to wait a lot longer than launch to start to play! People who don't have lightning fast internet and an XB1 are screwed.


I don't have an XB1 and bought the game on PC, but I am sad and angry for those who do!

@Pheonix985  I totally agree with you and shared my opinion on this a couple times in other news report. I don't get the console war or any other kind of bashing what other people like.


I like the WiiU and play most of my other games on PC. Why would I want XB1 or PS4 to fail? More diversity leads to a better industry. 


Hating on others and wanting what you don't like to fail is really selfish. Let others enjoy what they want and keep enjoying what others hate! All will be well, I promise!

@Pheonix985 Right on man.  Sad how many people come on here and just trash games and then start trashing each other.  Video games are supposed to be for fun.

@Cerulean7  Another alternative was to try the beta on PC to see if you could run it, and thankfully it's only the cost of the game for me to get to play it, and at 1080p :)

@berserker66666  Or maybe (just maybe) it's a fun game that people actually enjoy despite your opinion on it?

@tweakgame  Fake.  Have fun with all your new trojans and viruses.  This is an online only game like an MMO or SimCity - it's not possible to crack it except possibly temporarily.  The server knows you stole it.

I wouldn't even bother playing the 360 version, it's destined for the trash heap if you're going to rape the developers' vision and accommodate a powerhouse game to a last-gen platform. Just look how lame BF4 is on last-gen and its relatively tiny online battles compared to current-gen 64 player conquest. Can't afford it right now but the $500 Titanfall bunduru is a much greater value than dropping five hundo on just the console. Pretty satisfied with my technically inferior PS4 though, I love the trophy rarity gauge.

@troyhalo34 rumor has it its exactly the same apart from a minor graphical downgrade

@xen0f0rm @berserker66666  Exactly, too many sceptics and people who pointlessly hate without even trying the game! I've just pre-ordered the Titanfall bundle (price drop in UK) as it was great deal and am thoroughly looking forward to this game! Hopefully it's good if it lives up to the hype but if not then oh well!

@Happyclam @Link3301  Lol! Finished the tutorial, got disconnected from the server and stuck at "initializing" again! This will be a fun night! :)

reBOOT2099
reBOOT2099

@Happyclam @reBOOT2099 @Link3301  Like I said, after 30 minutes of "initializing" it got unstuck and I got into the server. Tutorial is going up automatically. I can play. Don't you yet?

@troyhalo34 @MjnE  Considering how well the Xbox 360 should have handled the Orange Box (source-engine based games), I'm guessing it could be running decently at 720p on there.  Though if it runs 720p on 360, there's no reason it shouldn't run 1080p on Xbox One.

@MjnE @troyhalo34Yea it looks like it could be as fun as the first couple cods I played. Enjoyed them a lot but the same game over and over gets old.

@troyhalo34 @MjnEit wouldnt surprise me, visually its not next gen at all on the bone. Also it doesnt look so different from cod to me..
