Titanfall beta is now available for all Xbox One owners

titanfall beta now available xbox one owners

Check out our review of Titanfall.

If you’ve been patiently waiting for access to the Titanfall beta, your ship has finally come in: any Xbox One owner can now try out the game for free by visiting the new demos section on their console. Respawn founder Vince Zampella tweeted the news that the beta is now “fully open” for business.

If you can’t see the Titanfall beta entry right away, it should appear very soon as access is rolled out globally. Code-free PC access is also expected to be announced today, though it wasn’t at the time of writing — we’ll update this post if the situation changes.

Titanfall developers are hoping that the extra players will be able to stress-test the game and help to iron out any remaining bugs before it’s officially released on March 11. If you’re going to dive straight into the game, we’d recommend checking out our comprehensive guide for Titanfall beta players.

Earlier rumors suggested that the beta would open up on Valentine’s Day, so that bout of speculation turned out to be close to the mark. We’ve already named the online multiplayer title one of our most anticipated games of 2014, and the final version will eventually appear on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The beta is scheduled to run until February 18 but is likely to be extended for at least a couple of days beyond that. Are you planning to get involved in the Titanfall beta? Is the game one of the major titles on your radar for 2014? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
