Titanfall Beta Currently Under Certification and Will Be Closed

By - Source: VG247 | B 22 comments

Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella revealed on Wednesday that the upcoming Titanfall beta will not be open to everyone all at once; the beta will be closed instead. The good news here is that customers won't need to pre-order the game in order to get into the beta, but you'll still need a code to gain entry.

"[The] goal is to get as many people in as possible, doing it in waves to make sure it works," Zampella said on Twitter.

As of this writing, the beta build is going through certification at Microsoft. There's now talk that it will go live on February 14, and that gamers will need an Electronic Arts Origin account in order to play. Unfortunately, how gamers will acquire the golden beta code is unknown at this time.

The Titanfall team also revealed that the game will support Microsoft's Smart Glass. As VG247 points out, Halo 4 uses Smart Glass as a portal to the Halo Waypoint match stats compository, so it's easy to see Titanfall provide the same second-screen service.

In related news, Electronic Arts revealed on Thursday that the Xbox One and PC version will launch on March 11, but the Xbox 360 version was pushed back to March 25.

"In these last few weeks before launch, Respawn is in the final stages of polishing the Xbox One and PC versions of the game," states Patrick Soderlund, EVP at EA Studios. "Bluepoint is doing the same with the Xbox 360 version. To give them the time they need to put the finishing touches on the current-gen version of the game, we are moving the Xbox 360 ship date to March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe. The extra two weeks will ensure the full world of Xbox gamers has an awesome experience."

As previously reported, the minimum specs required to play this game on the PC include a 64-bit operating system (Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1), an AMD Athlon X2 clocked at 2.8 GHz or an Intel Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.4 GHz. Additional requirements consist of 4 GB RAM, 512 MB of VRAM, Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT.

    Wonder how many hackers will be on the PC version!!!!
    is that supposed to be some attempt at saying that every multiplayer pc game has hackers? because its a bad attempt (how many people use hacked controllers on the xbawx? (besides if a multiplayer pvp game has hackers then the publisher/devs are doing something very wrong)

    I hope it does well. It'd be nice to see some cross platform gameplay if possible. Here's to hope. Cheers.

    He must not be familiar with Steam VAC.

    Ew EA. Looks like Mechwarrior Mainstream to me with repetitive gameplay if it's coming from EA.

    Microsoft and EA, neither are known to concern themselves with keeping servers up for long. I'd be hesitant to spend much on such a game.

    That sounds like a double-negative...so you actually DO care about this game.

    It's not a double negative. The word "double" means to have 2 of something that are the same or equal. Not and Less are not the same or equal.

    I pre-ordered the PC version.I don't have any philosophical issues with EA, or any publisher. If the game is good, I'll support it by buying it and recommending to folks. If it's Duke NukeEm or Aliens:Colonial Marines, then I don't buy or uninstall and lambast loudly.

    Sunflier,
    Realibrad is correct, as was Southernshark's grammatically correct comment. A double-negative would be if Southernshark said, "I couldn't not care less."On a scale of 0-10, with 0 being "no interest" and 10 being "complete interest", Southernshark can not go any lower than zero interest, thus, "He can not care less (than zero)."
    I'm just happy that someone (Southernshark) used the phrase properly. Many people incorrectly say "They could care less" when they really mean "They could not care less."

    (And to be completely fair, Realibrad's last comment should've been "...the same nor equal." since it does in fact reference a negative comparison. (Either/and/or) and (Neither/not/nor).

    We're all just having fun here, right??? :-)

    Evolution, were you educated outside of the states? You put the comma outside of the quotation mark but the period inside. You are using mixed rules, as the comma was placed logically but the period conventionally.
