Titanfall beta goes public, now open to all

Ok you can stop sharing the private beta codes for Titanfall, the developers Respawn, have just announced on Facebook it’s now a public beta. Since the beta codes started going out via email on Friday, they’ve become a form of digital currency. Most sites leveraged extra codes to get extra followers or email addresses. It’s certainly great they beta program is now opened up to the public, although the amount given away, really felt like everyone who wanted one, was able to get one.

PC Gamers were a little harder done by, with a mistake seeing Xbox One codes being sent to those who requested PC codes. While the announcement of an Open Beta for Titanfall is specifically for PC, you can imagine the PC open beta isn’t far away.

We’re excited to announce we have opened up the Titanfall Beta to EVERYONE on Xbox One! Head on over to the demo section on Xbox Live and download the Beta Now!
We will very likely experience server issues as we reach our Beta server capacity, but we appreciate your patience as this helps us make sure everything works at launch (and we’ll have way more servers then).
Let us know what you think about the Titanfall Beta in the comments below

The highly anticipated game suffered a severe server outage yesterday, for more than 6 hours. With Forza Motorsport also reporting issues and apologizing to gamers, it looks like the source of the problems may have been Xbox Live. To complicated things even further, the first Xbox One update was being pushed globally at the same time Titanfall were trying to test their servers. The good news is that’s all now resolved and the game is much happier today.

After the initial training missions, which is one of the best of any game I’ve played, the local play ends and you then rely on the servers being available to play the game at all.  If you’re interesting in the technology behind Titanfall on the Xbox one, the article ‘Let’s talk about the Xbox Live Cloud’ is well worth a read.

    I imagine you mean’t “Open Beta is specifically for Xbox One” :)
