If there’s one title that’s getting people to buy an Xbox One, it has to be Titanfall. Although the game isn’t going to be hitting the shelves until March, it’s already gotten quite a bit of hype. Some gamers have even put off their next-gen console purchase just to wait for it.
Well the wait is almost over for current Xbox One owners and PC users, or at least a select few. Respawn Entertainment, the blokes behind Titanfall, is now accepting sign-ups for the closed beta.
You won’t need to pre-order the game for access, but like most closed betas slots are going to be limited. The good news is, it doesn’t seem to go by a first-come-first-serve basis, so you can take your time, though we wouldn’t recommend it.
Boo! No sign-ups for Xbox 360 users
If you're an Xbox 360 user, you're in for a dissapointment. No closed beta for you as the sign-ups are ONLY for PC and Xbox One users. You're regretting putting off that Xbox One Christmas buy now aren't you?
As for the beta itself, we understand that there'll be three modes available to testers: Attrition, which is the team deathmatch mode, Hardpoint Domination, which is the control point capture mode, and Last Titan standing, which is a team deatmatch mode variant.

The closed beta officially starts on 14 February, just in time for a digital mech-based Valentines day’s massacre. So hurry over and sign-up now and you might just have something to do on a dateless Valentines night.
