Titanfall Beta Being Opened to All Xbox One and PC Users
In order to stress test Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment has announced the current multiplayer beta to be opened up for all Xbox One users. The move will also please the many who were unable to get an invitational key to participate in the closed beta test.
“We have limited server capacity for the beta, but would be good to hit that ceiling,” Respawn founder Vince Zampella tweeted this weekend. He later tweeted, “Ok, just heard from [Respawn programmer Jon Shiring]. His words are ‘Let’s break it’, so the plan is to make the beta fully open and have you max stress it!
“All the switches need to be flipped, and there are probably lots! It will take some number of time units to do it all!”
According to Zampella, the open beta for the PC will commence sometime later today or probably tomorrow. On that note he warned players to expect “delays in finding a server during peak times.” On the issue of servers crashing because of the intense load of players, Zampella seemed pretty confident that Titanfall would survive the stress test.
Respawn has also decided to extend the beta by “at least a day, to make up for the down time” players experienced on Friday. Previously, the beta was supposed to end on February 19, 2014.
