Registration invitations to stress test Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall on the Xbox One are reportedly being sent out to EA Origin account holders, numerous users claim.
According to a screenshot of the reported email taken by Twitter user Lazar Odic, the invitation states that the user has been selected "to take part in an exclusive trial for an upcoming title on Microsoft's Xbox One."
Interested users are then prompted to the click register button and follow the required steps. The email advises that account holders will receive an email containing a trial account code, start date of the test and instructions on how to join the game if they are selected to participate.
The registration link redirects users to an "alpha application login" page on the game's official website. Polygon staff registered via the page with Origin accounts resulting in a confirmation stating: "Your application to participate is complete. If you are selected to take part in our upcoming test, you will receive an email in the coming days with a unique code and instructions on how to download and access the game on Xbox One."
"We are very excited for Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts’ ‘Titanfall’ on Xbox and look forward to hearing more about the game in the coming weeks and months," a Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon when contacted about the invitations.
We have reached out to EA and Respawn to confirm the legitimacy of the invitations and for further information about upcoming Titanfall tests.
Update: A tweet from the official Respawn Entertainment account calls the limited early access to Titfanfall "a limited technical test."
As some of you are asking, we are doing a limited technical test. It is not a beta, and we don't have any beta news at the moment.— Respawn (@Respawn) January 16, 2014
