Titanfall Beta registration has ended and Electronic Arts is now sending out notification emails to the selected participants. Most of the lucky participants have already received their Beta codes and so it looks like the servers are almost full. Beta testing phase is very important for the developer because it will bring forth any minor bugs and glitches and will help the developer to eliminate such bugs before official launch of the game.
It seems like Respawn Entertainment is pretty satisfied and confident about the Beta version of Titanfall. There is no non-disclosure agreement in place, which means that the participants can freely discuss the game's quality and experience over the internet, share gameplay footage and screenshots and upload comparison videos and screenshots.
