Titanfall beta saw 2 million unique users, rumored cheevos list appears

Saturday, 22 February 2014 21:06 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Titanfall is the news du jour of late, what with the beta happening and everything. Speaking of the beta, Respawn’s community manager Abbie Heppe told Polygon that 2 million unique users participated in the tester.

Heppe said the team is now actively trying to work out bugs now, with engineer Jon Shiring adding that while there may be issued encountered at launch, the beta helped determine some of these beforehand.

“You never want to say that everything is going to be perfect,” said Heppe. “Obviously there are things that can change. But you don’t want to say, ‘oh, no, there will still be problems,’ because you don’t want to give people a lack of confidence in what you’re doing.

“I think that this beta was really about giving people confidence that not only will we be communicative with them, but we’re actively trying to work out any bugs now.”

That should be reassuring for some folks.

Speaking of Titanfall though, what’s being rumored as the Achievements List for the game has popped up over on NeoGAF.

We won’t post it here due to possible spoilers and such, but you are free to spoil yourself through the link if you like.

Titanfall will be released on March 11 for PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Thanks: ShopTo, Titanfall-Community.

    @4 So what exactly is the biggest release of Q1 considering Q1 ends at the end of March? Just wondering. Is it Thief? Plants vs Zombies? Infamous? Or has it already been released? Tomb Raider? Strider? Outlast?

    @Major Mayhem 70 we cant call a game the biggest release of month,decade, ever and so on….
    alot of people, who buy consoles, who play games, dont come to the games websites. they dont vote for the biggest game of the year.so their opinion is important too.maybe if they vote infamous would be the biggest game of Q1. im just saying that we cant call a game the biggest release. i think infamous is the biggest release of the Q1.you think titanfall is the biggest.everyone think diffrently ;)

    @8 I hear what your saying, and from a “personal opinion” perspective your right…

    But you know I can’t just leave it there. Right?

    The article states that 2 million unique users saw the Titanfall beta. Now let’s say half of those users liked what they saw and buys into Respawns vision. That’s a million sold. That’s a successful launch by any standard. True, Infamous will be launching in the same month and many PS4 owners will snatch that game up in a hurry. Yours truly included. Remember, I said PS4 owners. Let’s say all PS4 owners buy Infamous. What’s that come to? 6.5 million by launch? Now follow me back to Titanfall for a deeper look. Titanfall will be released not only to X1 users but PC gamers and 360 owners. That’s a whole lot more millions than PS4 millions. Even if only a quarter of 360 owners and PC gamers buy Titanfall, Infamous can’t match those millions. It’s really basic math when you break it down. And I know the “Negative Nancy’s” will think otherwise, and I’ll be sure to remind them of that come April.

    Now again, what is the biggest first quarter release? Before you answer, think with your brain and not with your heart.

    When you think about it, it’s the biggest release of the first half of 2014, atleast. We still don’t know much about games coming out later this year (Destiny should come out at the end of the year, but i won’t be surprised if it gets delayed).

    When i say biggest release, i mean the game that will sell the most and be the most well-received game. Infamous will be good, but it won’t come close to be as big as Titanfall. It’s just simple facts, and it cannot be denied.

    @Major Mayhem 70 I thought about it and still think that it will be the biggest, you now why? Cuz playstation players in general don’t buy enough copies. Therefore hopefully an wrong but infamous wont sell that much as you are expecting. If it sells 1.5 millions in 2 months that would be great :)

    Predicting Titanfall to be a bigger launch than Infamous is like predicting England as a football team will beat a team of 3 year olds, and that a Ferrari will outrun a 50 year-old Volvo.

    Makes you look stupid even trying to deny it, or state it as childish. It’s just facts as solid as they come.

    What exactly was your point then? Are you saying just because the games haven’t released yet, there may be a chance of the opposite happening? Stop being so awkward.

    You can go to bed at night and not be 100% sure you’ll wake up in the morning with all 10 fingers, because it hasn’t happened yet, and therefore can’t be ”proven”, right? It’s just so stupid.

    Just answer me yes or no to this: Do you think Titanfall will be a bigger release than Infamous (sales+critical reception)?

    If you answer anything other than yes to this, you’re a lost cause to me.

    My point was patently clear in my comment.

    However, those suffering from tunnel vision fueled by the eager consumption of Microsoft PR, and also a very poor understanding of the word “fact” (I recall you having difficulties with the word “shown” also) will understandably struggle to comprehend it.

  21. Major Mayhem 70

    @11 My math concerning this topic is really meant to be overly exaggerated. The main point that I wanted to get across, was the fact that potential buyers of Infamous will only be PS4 owners. Titanfall isn’t debuting on a sole console. I think some are making the mistake that “Infamous will sell this many units on the PS4 and Titanfall will sell this many units on the X1.” It’s not about how many X1 owners will support Titanfall, it’s how many X1, 360 and PC owners will buy Titanfall. The PS4 has sold millions but, it is far behind the install base of the 360 and PC.

    Either way, trying to conversate with the likes of you is like trying to talk to a fish.

    Also congrats for not answering a most simple question. You’re either in denial, or you just won’t admit to being wrong.

  23. Joe Musashi

    I am not here to validate your wonky opinions, child.

    And my observation in #15 is bang on the money. That you’re getting so hooked on a single application of this principle and cannot see why:

    a) #15 is right
    b) your comments prompting of it were wrong
    c) your tunnel-vision response to #15 is wrong
    d) your tantrums that follow are wrong

    You really can’t grasp the simplest of statements, especially when they conflict with your bias.

    For someone who, amongst other things, has a reputation for flinging out the phrase “butthurt fanboy” in the general direction of others, you present yourself as the text-book definition of the term.

    Declaring opinion as fact is a no-no.

    Fact.

    @Delsin Row I agree with you in regards of making games for everyone, even though most games are average (B2S, infamous, god of war..etc). However they made a truly fantastic game, which is the uncharted series. Also Last of us was good but not as good as uncharted. Anyway MS make games that last where they have a good multiplayer mode. So they sacrifice the single player with the multiplayer. However they are very good in general.

    @Delsin Row to be honest I didn’t like both god of wars in ps3 they were boring no story just hack and slash. Last of us was great but I ment not as good as uncharted series. While infoumus Meh, beyond 2 souls the ending was great only meanwhile the gameplay not so much.

    You are right. Titanfall will be biggest launch Q1, maybe first half of year. Hype and sales.

    We all know it and so does JM. Wont get straight or honest answer from him when there are sematics spelling or grammar to divert away from the point though.

    No point trying conversation with JM. He not interested in video games. Just mind games and starting argument.
