Honestly I was only mildly interested till the embargo got lifted. I had it preordered as I wanted another game on xbone. Watched some of these neW videos and have been like holy shit this looks awesome.

Still disappointed that it is 5 vs 5.

Given that the maps from these guys judging from their Call of Duty series tend to be rather small and given that going a certain amount would lead to an inevitable cluster of dying over and over I think it might be a good decision

And seriously, if the game and maps are designed around that number, then it really doesn't matter. I don't think people seem to grasp this.

I was big fan of games having stuff like big team battles like in CoD or in Halo. Where you played with more players then the standard player count. I wanted something like that in this game, keep the 6 vs 6 as standard and also have big team battles.

I meant 6 vs 6. Yeah.

Ehh so what if it's only 6v6. Online multiplayer is still online multiplayer. Back then, we use to only have a maximum of 4 god damn players!

I don't think it's even a matter of going back to basics. It's just that it's not a Call Of Duty or Battlefield. It wasn't designed around massive maps and dozens upon dozens of players. It's designed to be played with the number of players it has.

Got my beta invite for this!

At first I got an XBone one a few days ago even though I had applied for PC. Guess that was pretty silly fuckup on their part! They gave me the PC code today. Downloading this.

Been playing the beta today. It's pretty sick. Wrecking people's shit in a Titan is so satisfying.

My God, this game. I was hoping it wasn't like all the boring military shooters on the market and it's not. It's actually fun to play.

And it makes me really want Mirror's Edge 2 already.

Oh. My. Fucking. God.

I was not expecting to love this game as much as I do. I was initially going to get it purely because there is a dearth of things to play on my new consoles, but goddamn, this is awesome. This is the first competitive shooter I've legitimately enjoyed since Team Fortress 2 came out. I was worried it'd feel like Call Of Duty or Battlefield, but it doesn't at all. It feels fresh and not too overly complicated. It's easy to get into (which is a huge plus for my dumbass) and a lot of fun to play. I'm giddy as hell during these matches and will be hugely sad when the beta ends.

I need to go reserve this as soon as I have money. Like, ASAP.

I completely agree. I traded in stuff to preorder my copy before I knew how good it was. I only picked it since it was that or thief for a deal. So glad I went with this

My God. So good. So, so very good. Just pushed up to level 5. Almost level 6.

I think there's only two maps in beta? One of them seems to encourage parkour. The other seems like it's more indoor/outdoor oriented. I like the variety. I also love that they give the losing team some way to fight for their own dignity at the end by allowing them a chance to retreat (or die trying).

And the sense of mobility in this game is fucking amazing. Like, any other FPS, and I'd see all of these maps as a maze of buildings. Instead, they are playgrounds I can climb all over and do whatever the fuck I want in. It takes a lot of neat parts from a game like Mirror's Edge and mixes them with something similar to Halo 2, then throws mechs into the mix for awesome measure.

Nothing is more awesome then ejecting from your Titan and looking down while you see it go nuclear and kill 3 guys in titans.

I haven't been able to pull that off. Not sure why. I have the nuke perk, but every time I eject, I just climb out and onto the ground and run.

This game is fucking awesome. I don't shoot too much. Mostly spend my time parkouring all over the place while stealthed snapping people's necks (or kicking them straight in the asshole) and rodeoing titans. It's ridiculous fast paced fun.

Seriously though. I've had kickfights with people where it's just us jumping around and off walls and trying to kick eachother. It's amazing.

And I will ride your titan. I will ride it, shoot its brains out, and then kick you after you eject.

The first time I died with a titan was when another titan fell on me. I was like "WHAT JUST HAPPENED".

OPEN beta. It's been in CLOSED beta the past few days.

PC is still in closed beta until some point in the future. Possibly tomorrow.

I can't wait to see what the additional weapon mods/weapons/titans/perks/abilities are in the full game. I managed to get a burn card that let me summon an Ogre Titan instead of an Atlas it was pretty friggin awesome.

Beta has been extended to Friday, hell yes!

Any confirmation if all the experience we get here transfers to the full game? I really hope so.

I'm like 99% sure I read that experience will not transfer over. I can't think of any game off the top of my head that allows you to transfer XP from Beta into retail. Kind of super unfair to new players.

Edit: Found it; it won't.
