Niner let us know last night that Respawn Entertainment is now accepting applications for participation in a beta test for Titanfall on the PC and Xbox One console. Registration for the beta ends this Friday, February 14 at 4pm PST so be sure to send in your application by then.
According to Polygon, the beta will include three game modes: a team deathmatch variant called Attrition, Hardpoint Domination, which requires players to capture and hold control points, and Last Titan Standing, a tactical no-respawn mode that ends when all enemy Titans have been destroyed.
Titanfall releases for the Xbox One and PC on March 14, 2014. The Xbox 360 port, developed by Bluepoint Games, is scheduled for a March 25 release.
