DOOM Open Beta Live!

The DOOM Open Beta is in full effect! I hope that you all were able to preload the game via the Steam client.  If you haven't then all you have to do is:

  1. Open the Steam client and select the 'Store' button.
  2. In the 'search the store' field type in 'DOOM'.
  3. Select 'DOOM Open Beta' from the search interface.
  4. Scroll down and press the 'Play Game' button.

The open beta dates will be April 15th - 17th.  I was able to download the client and get in a few matches  of Team Deathmatch on both the Heatwave and Infernal maps.

The run and gun, fast paced action of the game is super entertaining and addicting.  Even in the open beta, you can customize your character and your weapon load outs once you reach the right level.  Its awesome that you have the personalization even in the open beta.

Just a few screen shots of a winning match I was in and the loading screen for the Heatwave map.

Check out some Gameplay that I was able to Stream last night via the TeamEVGA Twitch Channel!

Titanfall 2 Teaser Trailer

Respawn Entertainment and EA released a new teaser trailer for Titanfall 2! With the initial hype and success of the original Titanfall, there are rumored to be some major improvements to the sequel, including an actual single player campaign mode!  Something that many players were disappointed to find out the original game never included.  Check out the teaser trailer they released below!

There was a lot of initial excitement for the original title.  I was one of the early adopters of the game.  It was fun and exciting for the first few months, when there were others to join in matches.  The game itself had a good reception.  I hope that Titanfall 2 brings back those players who were exited for the original and see the game become what the first game should have been.
