Titanfall: Only Three Types of Titan, Beta Details on the Way
The game’s retailer specific pre-order bonuses have also been revealed.
Titanfall will have only three types of the titan, Respawn's community manager Abbie Heppe has revealed on Twitter while studio co-founder Vince Zampella has announced that details of the game's upcoming beta will soon be revealed.
In response to IGN's Ryan McCaffrey's comments on how little information is currently available about the game, which launches next month, Heppe said, "here are not more than 3 titans. Bam! Knowledge :)".
The three titan classes are the light but fast Stryder, the slow but powerful Ogre, and the all-rounder Atlas mech.
Zampella meanwhile has confirmed that beta invites will not be awarded based on pre-orders.
You will not need to have the game preordered to get in the beta. I'd give it to them first for supporting us if it were possible tho =)

Waiting for things to be approved before we can announce any more details. Should be soon…
