Will Titanfall Beta Participation Require PreOrder?
@x_Ramone will not require a pre-order, but no more details than that yet... =/— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) February 2, 2014
As reported by VG247, Titanfall from developer Respawn Entertainment may not require you to have pre-ordered the game for you to join beta testing. Titanfall was thought to be entering beta testing next week but Vince Zampella of Respawn has said on Twitter that you do not need to have pre-ordered to get in on the beta.
This has caused some confused Tweets to surface saying that the beta was put forward as part of Titanfall's pre-order bonus. Certainly, participation in the beta still seems to be presented as a bonus for pre-order on Origin, where, when I click on the news about the Titanfall beta on the Store front, I am taken to purchase the game.
Hopefully there'll be some solid announcements soon enough so that we're not all left in limbo while anticipating the carnage we will all create with our Titans.
