[UPDATE] Titanfall's product page on Xbox.com states that you will be able to pre-load the game on Xbox One ahead of its release on March 11. It remains to be seen if the same is true for PC.
"You will be charged the full price immediately for this pre-purchase. Xbox One game expected to release on March 11th, 2014. You may download the game from Xbox Live before then, but it will not be playable until after 12:01 AM PST on the release date in your country," Microsoft said.
The original story is below.
Respawn Entertainment cofounder Vince Zampella has confirmed on Twitter that you'll be able to pre-load Titanfall before its official launch on March 11 so you can get started playing right at 12:01 a.m. But importantly, he did not say if this applies to the PC version, Xbox One version, or both. It's also not clear when pre-loading will start.
We've reached out to Zampella and Respawn for clarification.
Built by Zampella and numerous former Call of Duty developers, Titanfall is one of 2014's most-anticipated titles. You can read more about the game through our newly launched feature The Next Big Game: Titanfall. There you'll find exclusive news, previews, and interviews.
