Titanfall Beta Rumored to Start in February
If you’re looking to run around in a mech early in Titanfall, you might just get your chance in a rumored beta that starts in February.
According to Xboxygen (translated by CVG) pictures taken at a Micromania store in France feature an advertisement that claims a beta test for Titanfall will launch on Feb. 14. That’d be a pretty sweet Valentine’s Day present for the Xbox One or PC player in your life.
Xboxygen has said that a source pointed out the beta will run until Feb. 19 and will be exclusive to France’s Micromania stores as well as other GameStop locations.
A week before this photo surfaced, EA apparently sent out closed alpha invites for “an exclusive trial for an upcoming EA title on Microsoft’s Xbox One” that featured a link to a Titanfall website.
Though both EA and Respawn Entertainment denied the claims that the test was a beta, it would seem the appropriate time to run a beta test, considering that the game proper will be released on PC and Xbox One on March 11. For its part, Respawn has hinted there is an announcement forthcoming.
Yes, we will have an announcement soon. I'm sure no one can guess what it will be… #supersecret
