Titanfall Beta Now Open, And For Longer
If you were on Twitter for at least ten minutes this weekend, you probably would have seen the insane rushes to grab Titanfall beta keys that were being thrown out by Respawn, EA and Microsoft. Some people wanted to be in the beta so badly that they were willing to pay close to the region of $35 for a key on eBay, even though Respawn decided to take the whole thing into open beta just a few hours later.
In a bid to essentially “break” Titanfall, Respawn has now opened up the beta to anyone on Xbox ONe and PC.

The Xbox One got treated first, with Vince Zampella tweeting early Sunday morning that one of their programmers over at Respawn really wanted to break the game and see how it performs under stress. The Titanfall Beta was promptly put onto the Xbox Live store and made available to anyone. Servers crashed, then came back online and the game, well, run. A great sign for a title that is getting even more servers before launch. Zampella also promised that the PC beta would be open soon, and this morning Respawn detailed how you could still get in on the action.
Unlike the Xbox One beta, you will need to have already signed up for the PC version of the test in order to get the game added to your Origin account. If you’ve signed up and log into Origin, you should see the Titanfall Beta sitting in your Games Folder just waiting to download, although Respawn has said you may need to wait a few hours for it to reflect.
It may take a couple more hours to get the PC beta out to everyone who registered. Please be patient, Origin is going as fast as they can

Respawn also took the chance to announce that the beta will be extended by a day due to the server issues experienced on Friday. The beta will now close at 6pm PST on Wednesday, which translates to 4am locally on Thursday morning. Plenty time still to download the online shooter and give it more than a few goes.
And trust me, you’re going to want to do just that.
