Default Titanfall

I received an "exclusive invite" that I needed to register for because "availability to this trial is extremely limited. " *EDIT* It's an "Alpha Trial".

I registered since it was for the XB1 and it turned out to be for Titanfall. It says I was successful and then welcomed me. However, right after that it said if I was selected I'd receive another Email with details.

Long story short, I don't know if this game is my type but reading about it for a while now and it's VERY interesting.

Part mech game, part human shooter. It almost sounds like it's cooperative multiplayer

I don't feel like typing it all out so if you haven't heard of the game, here's the official site:

I read about the Alpha on IGN. I registered. Here's hoping. I already have it preordered with Amazon.

Try that link if anyone else wants to try to get in.

It was an email inviting us to the Alpha trial, we don't have codes to play yet. It's basically just a registration process right now.

Since I might not play next season in XBSHL, I decided to sign up for this. Hope I get selected.

It's just so different that I'm interested in it. You have to EARN a mech during each round. I don't think you start off with one. And even then it sounds like they've really balanced the game out where you don't have to have a mech to win (or not guaranteed to win if you earn enough points for a mech). A good team can take down Mechs.

Plus, my understanding is there's a campaign that you're playing but it's just multiplayer online. There are also AI teammates/opponents which is intriguing.

If the game hasn't been released yet, how can it earn 75 awards already?

Yeah, the videos they have released really focus on some of that balance between pilots and Mechs, which was an issue in other similar games (IE MechWarrior 2 LoneWolf on Xbox).

Only 6 Players and their Mech's per side which is interesting, but the rest of the teams will be filled out with AI to make it 48 players total.

Lol, looks like most are from E3 or events like that. It definitely has impressed and is taking an interesting direction by not going with a true multiplayer. It's the game I'm most excited for outside of The Division later this year.

This is my most anticipated game of this year. If anyone goes for a key, gets it and doesn't want it I'd be happy to take it off your hands. This is the main launch window game I wanted for XB1.

Indications have been that The Division will be delayed into 2015. Hopefully they can get it done this year.
