[Update] Titanfall Xbox One Beta Officially Open, No Need For A Code
Update: The gates are officially open for the Titanfall's Xbox One beta. PC's gates should be opening tomorrow.
The XboxOne beta is now OPEN. You can download it at the dashboard. Go at those servers!— Respawn (@Respawn) February 16, 2014
We very likely will experience server issues as this happens. Thank you for being understanding, we'll have more at launch and this helps!— Respawn (@Respawn) February 16, 2014
Our team is still working on PC details & we will provide updates as soon as we have them. Our systems are still sending out e-mail invites.— Titanfall (@Titanfallgame) February 16, 2014
We recently live streamed some of the Titanfall beta, playing until the servers gave out on us. You can check out the video of us playing for nearly an hour below.
Respawn has decided to open the beta up to all players. Soon, you won't need a code in order to play. If you've got an Xbox One or worthy PC – you're in.
The beta won't open immediately. Respawn still has to throw a few switches, but when it's online – which should be tonight for the Xbox One version – Major Nelson has offered some instructions on where to find it. Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella says the PC version should open up tomorrow.
To download the beta, sign in to your Xbox One and head to the “New Game Demos” section of the Game Store and it will appear there. You can also say “Xbox Bing” then “Show me game demos”.
Zampella offered a few tweets about the decision to open everything up.
Zampella also confirmed that the beta will be extended in order to make up some of the downtime.
We are going to extend at least a day, to make up for the down time.— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) February 16, 2014

This is fantastic news, especially for players who weren't able to get their hands on a code. It will also show Respawn how hard it can push the game, making for a much smoother launch, and long-term server stability.
