Titanfall Beta News
If you have an Xbox One or PC and you’ve been curious as to what all of the Titanfall buzz and talk is about , then you have a new found opportunity to jump into the beta and try the game out for yourself! As of this past Saturday, Respawn decided to allow anyone who has an Xbox One to jump into the beta without needing to ‘sign up’ and receive a download code via email. The same goes for PC users as of Sunday night.
To do so, here is what Major Nelson (Xbox’s Director of Programming) said to do in order to take advantage of this:
“To download the beta, sign in to your Xbox One and head to the ‘New Game Demos’ section of the Game Store and it will appear there. You can also say ‘Xbox Bing’ then ‘Show me game demos’. Also, in some Xbox Live regions you’ll see a ‘Join The Titanfall Beta’ link on the home page of Xbox One, next to My Game and Apps.”
As it stands, the beta runs natively at 792p as confirmed by Respawn when asked about the game’s graphical performance. Respawn predicted that the final build of the game will probably run around 900p and that Microsoft is working hard on an update to assist in the ease of playing with friends and managing multiplayer features as well.
Also, as a result of the beta testing, Respawn is being granted an Xbox One patch that fiddles with the sensitivity of the Xbox One controller on the edges of the thumbstick’s outer boundaries. When asked about it, here’s what design lead Justin Hendry said to The Verge :
“It wasn’t really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls. Now it’s fixed. We’re happy with it.”
Titanfall is set for March 11th release on PC and Xbox One. The 360 version will have to wait until March 25th. For those worried about the game’s minimum requirements, check them out here.
