Titanfall will be releasing an open beta for the Xbox One as announced by Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella on Twitter on Friday, Feb. 14.

Zampella also stated that the PC beta will soon be open following the Xbox One.

The Titanfall beta will appear under the "new game demos" section on all Xbox One consoles, according to Engadget. Further instructions on how to get the beta for Xbox One can be found on Major Nelson's blog.

The beta will be open as a way to stress test the game as much as possible, according to Gamespot. Stress testing a game is offered by many game studios, including games which include multiplayer mode, Ubergizmo reported.

Three game modes will be playable for the beta, Forbes reported. The first will be "Attrition". The second will be Hardpoint Domination. The third will be Last Man Standing, a search and destroy game where players try to eliminate all enemy titans.

"We have limited service capacity for the beta, but would be good to hit the ceiling," Zampella tweeted on Friday, Ars Technica reported. However, Zampella tweeted again later that evening after talking with coder John Shiring, stating the beta was ready.

"Let's break it," Zampella said. "The plan is to make the beta fully open and have you max stress it!"

Stress testing has been used to improve games before release in the past, Ubergizmo reported. Video games, such as Blizzard's Diablo, opened up its beta ahead of the game's launch to stress test the servers and make improvements. The stress testing ensures that once the game is released, everything will run more efficiently.

The beta was originally scheduled to run until Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 9 p.m. ET, Engadget reported. However, the running time will be extended by at least one more day due to server issues, keeping players offline on Friday night.

Titanfall is scheduled to be released on March 11, Ars Technica reported.
