The previously announced multiplayer technical test for Titanfall 2 is currently live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The test will run from August 19 to Sunday, August 21, with no specific end time listed.
The beta includes two modes, as described by EA below:
- Bounty Hunt (5v5): A brand new mode that pits Pilots and their teammates against an opposing team as well as the Remnant Fleet. Earn bonuses by killing grunts and enemies, but make sure and deposit all your points at the bank between waves without getting killed.
- Pilots vs. Pilots (8v8): Players can be the best Pilot on the Frontier and put their combat and mobility skills to the ultimate test in this classic 8 vs 8 Pilots only mode.
Players can experience some of the game’s pilot loadouts, which come equipped with different sets of pilot abilities. Available in this week’s tech test are the pilot abilities: Grapple, Pulse Blade, Holo Pilot, and Stim.
For those that may miss out or want more mech-filled action, a second tech test will run from August 26-28.
In case you were wondering why the beta test isn’t coming to PC, Respawn Entertainment has addressed your concerns. In short, the game is not optimized yet for the PC version due to the wide range of specs that players have.
“We’re still making a lot of tweaks and changes to the renderer, the game, and effects so we haven’t run the game through the hardware compatibility lab yet to detect and handle a large variety of hardware – video cards, CPUs etc. Quite frankly, we aren’t ready to deal with that yet, we are still making the game better,” Respawn said.
