If you're lucky enough to get in, you can expect to play three game modes available during the beta: Attrition, Hardpoint Domination, and Last Titan Standing. Attrition is the game's straight-up deathmatch mode, Hardpoint Domination has players on each team attempting to hold specific points around the map, and Last Titan Standing starts every player with a Titan and ends when only one of the giant mechs remains.
Does that information help you not get immediately stomped out when you enter the game? Nope. To help new players out, Respawn Entertainment has kindly released a video full of tips and tricks to give you a leg up on the competition.
