The Titanfall beta is coming.
Developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that it will launch a website tonight where gamers can sign up for a chance to beta test the highly anticipated shooter. The site is live now, although it is having issues.
Head to Titanfall.com/beta to sign up. If you are having troubles getting through, keep trying. EA is working on getting the servers back up and running.
Titanfall is due out March 11 for Xbox One and PC. Respawn wants a chance to test the game in a real-world setting before it ships.
Respawn boss Vince Zampella tweeted the following:
The developer did not say when the beta would start, but Zampella did explain that the test isn’t open to everybody.
“If it were up to me, I would let most of you in,” Zampella tweeted. “Sadly, we have restrictions that we couldn’t avoid.”
At the same time, the beta isn’t limited to only to the United States, according to Zampella. European gamers can also get in on the action.
Titanfall is a futuristic military shooter. It has players controlling on-foot soldiers who can also call in large armored robots. Players can then either pilot those mech suits or command them to follow. The title is one of the biggest releases for the Xbox One since the console launched in November. It will hit Xbox 360 later in March.
