BIG ROBOTS AND LITTLE PEOPLE game Titanfall is now open for beta player registrations on the PC and the Xbox One.
The beta was due to start later today, but came early. Anyone interested in taking part in the beta version and holding an EA Origin games account and a gaming PC or Xbox One should go to the registration page now.
Looks like someone hit the button early! Site is live... Go, go. http://t.co/r0qllzUAFd— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) February 12, 2014
Beta tests will be handed out in chunks, but apparently there is a lot of demand already.
According to the Titanfall Twitter account, users should "just keep trying". It added, "We have a huge amount of traffic hitting the site currently." Earlier it said, "Be patient and keep trying. The website is slammed currently."
We got onto the website with no problem. However, there is a limited amount of space available and neither registering nor pre-ordering can guarantee access.
Signup closes on 14 February, Valentines day, and lucky punters should start looking for mail, other than cards from their mums, from about 17 February.
Once you have registered there is a good luck webpage to go through and the suggestion that you might want to invite your friends along too. However, considering that spaces are limited you might want to keep it under your hat.
The beta will be in the English language, and there are no plans for an Xbox 360 beta version. Players are reminded that the beta is changing code and will not reflect the final game.
Titanfall will be released on 14 March. A special edition Xbox One version looks to separate punters from £250. µ
