Xbox gamers looking forward to playing the new Titanfall game in its beta development stage, might be interested in a couple of videos which have been released by the game’s developers Respawn that provide a little more insight into the development of the game and its beta testing phase.
The new Titanfall beta testing will be an exclusive to all those gamers that have already pre-ordered, allowing them to get a taste for the game before it’s officially launched next month.
If you haven’t already registered for access to the Titanfall beta testing and development stage and would like to become involved, you can register your interest here and sign up for the beta gameplay which kicks off tomorrow.
“Up to twelve human players choose their pilot types and are dropped on the map, beginning the game. A timer displays the time until a Titan can be deployed, which is reduced by killing other players. Once deployed, Titans are protected by a forcefield for about 30 seconds, which protects the player-pilot as well.
Pilots are agile and accumulate momentum while running (similar to Tribes), which lets players run on walls and chain together double jumps. There are multiple types of Titans, each with unique abilities and animations. Pilot and Titan controls are identical except where the pilot’s double jump becomes the Titan’s dash, as Titans cannot jump, crouch, or cover. The mechs are not slow, but their movement is slower than the nimble pilots.”
The new Xbox One Titanfall limited edition wireless controller is now available to preorder for $65 and will start shipping on 11th March 2014 in time to play the new game.
