South Africa: here’s when you can play Titanfall 2 Tech Test this Friday

titanfall 2 black friday

After Titanfall 2‘s Tech Test debut this past weekend, we imagine that Respawn has a fairly long to do list. Thanks to the massive support, criticism and community suggestions the developer received, it’s probably also acceptable to believe that the final weekend of the Tech Test should be a much better experience.

While previous peeves centred around the lower pace of the game and the Titan’s mechanics, other factors like the grappling hook and range of weapons will likely see a swathe of players returning to Titanfall 2’s servers this weekend.

But when can you play?

South African Titanfall 2 players can join EA’s servers from 6pm SAST this Friday

For South Africans, Titanfall 2‘s servers will be accessible once again from 6pm SAST on Friday 26 August, according to the game’s lead engineer Jon Shiring. While no official closing time has been given as yet, South Africans should be able to play online until 6am Monday 29 August, if Respawn goes by the same times as last weekend.

Titanfall 2 itself will arrive in its final form on 28 October 2016 on the PC, Xbox One and for the first time, the PlayStation 4.

For those who don’t abide by South African Standard Time, have a look at the approximate opening times for major time zones below. Do note, that these times may be subject to change (and people found out during last weekend’s Tech Test):

US West PDT: 9am, Friday 26 August
US East DT: 12pm
UTC: 4pm
Central Europe CET: 6pm
India IST: 9.30pm
Japan JST: 1am, Saturday 27 August
Australia East AEST: 2am
