GOGOGO

Yes, that’s right! You can go here and register your interest for the TitanFall beta.

Now as for your chances of getting in, I’m not so sure about, but hey, you can try. You’ll need to pick either Xbox One or PC to register your interest for the beta. Then you play the waiting game and they will email you no later than 11:59 PM PST on February 17th to tell you that you haven’t gotten in.

But give it a shot, you never know, perhaps you’ll be one of the few who gets in and then you can laugh at me for doubting you. Respawn’s TitanFall certainly looks very promising. Free running gun combat with giant mechs sounds like a winning combination to me. Seats are apparently limited so if you want your foot in the door you better sign up right now.  

Ok, so are you back from signing up to the beta? Good! Let me run you through the official beta trailer.  The trailer starts off with slowly panning logos, as usual, then the black screen opens up as a character from a first person perspective jumps out of a titan presumably. The HUD is the standard floaty augmented reality looking thing with a map in the top left  and weapons in the bottom right.

The player starts out with a “Smart Pistol MK5” with a silencer. In the bottom left there is 53 seconds counting down and seems to be the attrition game mode which pits two factions against each other, one kidnapping hostages, the other trying to save said hostages.

The game then cuts to a montage showing the wall running and double jumping on foot, as well as mech combat, which seems to have a gravity gun style weapon to throw objects at people. Hanging off ledges and hijacking Titans is also possible. Overall, the game looks fantastic and I reckon it’ll be an absolute blast to play.

    Just signed up, crossing my fingers now and hope I get lucky

  • VampyricSquirrel Monk

    I’m not signing up for another Beta for a while… got too many games to get through and other things to get sorted.

    • RinceandLeSIGH

      You still play 360 man?

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Yeah, from time to time… been busy with a whole bunch of stuff other than gaming. I’ll hopefully be on the 360 soon… need to download Dead Island :P

    Oh boy! Time to blame every single thing wrong with it on it being ‘a beta version”. Because…you know when Beta is over the whole game will change to be entirely different and bug free.

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s EA we can trust them.

      • RinceandLeSIGH

        Ouch ;)

        I’m waiting until they tell you they’re using a proprietary network protocol & you need an EA approved modem for $100, or a handy adapter for only $30.

        • Hammersteyn

          Hahahaha

  • Brian Murphy

    Word of advice, don’t sit in the mech’s for too long. Apparently you’ll get kicked from the game for camping of you sit in a mech for too long.

    • Hammersteyn

      Like when you are first to grab a vehicle in BF?

      • Brian Murphy

        Like when you are playing, what I read, if you play in a mech for too long you get kicked for camping. I’m assuming this is simply an oversight to the camping mechanic and will be fixed, but it’s something I saw earlier.

    • Umar Reborn

      That’s a shame, sometimes a guy just want to get away from the world and chill in his mech with a cinnabon and cafe mocha

  • Hammersteyn

    I just uninstalled Origin yesterday :(

    Titanfall is gonna be another lost cause, sure it might look all shiny but is made on an ageing engine (yes I know COD Ghosts uses Q3 engine) has no destruction, I mean with a flipping robot on NEXT GEN no destruction of walls, shooting missiles and crap load of bullets and wow wall has perhaps a chip and some black residue oh wow that’s fantastic! 6 v 6 and they say it was a choice they made, I am sure they are lieing and just the engine cant keep up with more or the game would be too crowded, due to probably small levels and oh yeah no destruction. atleast make destruction on Battlefield bad company standards. This games is gonna be another Brink by the looks of it. Titanfall , fall on it’s face.

      Gary’s mod can do 128 players, Counter Strike can do 64.

    • Johan du Preez

      This is COD with Mech’s I think allot of the COD crowd will play this and it might just replace COD, its got the potential seeming the movement and physics is exactly the same but its got “Mech’s” rofl.

      So rather than Using the Quake 3 engine they are using the Source Engine. This engine is also over a decade old ….

      Everyone is shouting next gen but the “next gen” games runs on a engine that was created in the early 2000’s.

      This is hilarious.

  • Umar Reborn

    It’s all or nothing. There’s a lot riding on this game. Pray to the heavens EA, for judgement is almost upon thee

  • Tarisma

    How big will the download be?

  • Rags

    Movement looks sweet.

  • Captain GUZ

    If I had in Xbox
