GR: Vince Zampella of Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that you don't have to pre-order Titanfall in order to get access to the upcoming beta.
Great news as my preorder is at walmart, I can pick it up and be playing by 12:30, gamestop always has long lines. I also love the confidence they are showing, giving everyone access is saying our game is so great once you get a fix, you will be hooked. I'm definitely Preparing For Titanfall.
Great news! Shows confidence in their game and should yield better results as more people participate. It should also silence the haters.
That's good that it doesn't need a pre-order. I'm still undecided between "Day 1" and "Wait until it's on sale," so this will help me with my decision.
Eh, the way gamestop does their midnights now they can knock out a line of 200 people in 15 minutes once midnight hits. Plus I like free stuff :)
great news for me since i am not pre-ordering. well, not so long as i can download it on the xbox store at midnight. I guess i could have just pre-ordered and then cancelled anyways. Speaking of downloading titles, any word on weather sony or MS will begin to let us "pre-download" titles so that at midnight of launch we can just start playing?
@trufan- You got it wrong. Your not preparing for Titanfall...it's Standby for Titanfall! I can't wait for the beta to test it out. @Septic- It would be nice if it would silence the haters, but you know it won't. That's good that it is a free access beta. It would be nice if they could allow all those who preordered the game access to the beta a few days before everyone else.
Why? You get enough shit for preordering. Most betas are marketing betas to persuade people who haven't preordered yet to preorder. Those who have already preordered should be happy with what they get and not ask for extras just because they put money down pre release.
How do you get in this beta?
I'm guessing there will be some sort of sign-up. I'm hoping for an open beta though!
great now pls tell us how to get into beta? i'd go in for both or all 3, 360, XB1 and PC LOL
open beta ?!
I will download it, as I am planning to do for big games I don't want to trade in. Also, I don't want to have to swap the disc. Wish we could pre-order directly through the Xbox.
Completely OT and this is for anyone from Australia/New Zealand on this site. Seems that Titanfall (XB1 & PC version) will not launch with local dedicated server access, right now it looks like Aus/NZ gamers will have to rely on servers located in Singapore. I can only imagine what the ping will be from Australia/New Zealand to Singapore, especially for an online only game. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.vg247.com/2014/0...
Im sorry but the last thing I care about is Australia and new zealand. In america and north america in general is all I care about. If the game doesnt fare well in new zealand sorry....I just dont care.
I tried playing Battlefield 4 on Western US servers and i live in Europe and i found the connection not that bad considering i live in Europe. My connection is bad so i expected to experience more lag. Since you're connecting to servers not a players internet connection, i think this will help with ping and lag. Microsoft Azure servers are known to be superior to Dices and EA's servers too, so you might not be that bad off?
im gonna try beta if its supergood i might get for pc only reason holding me back form buying this is theres gonna be titanfall 2 if that comes out following year noone willl bep laying this i forked over 60 bucks game i cant get rid of cuz its pc. where as titanfall 2 will be multiplat on ps4 i think of whole picture game can be supergood but whats sense when sequel comes out noonep laying original especially pc gamers
