We're a matter of weeks away from Titanfall's beta going live so it was only right to expect the system requirements to start cropping up for Respawn Entertainment's mech-based Call of Duty killer.
Pitching 6 v 6 battles with the potential addition of fourteen Titans and over fifty NPCs, this is going to be a multiplayer game that's packing a lot of action and firepower into its small-scale maps. With that it mind, let's see what system requirements needed to run Titanfall, one of 2014's most anticipated PC games...
Titanfall Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit and upwards
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.8 GHz
RAM: 4GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 4770
GPU RAM: 512 MB VRAM
DX: DirectX 9.0c
Titanfall Projected Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit Edition and upwards
CPU: 2.7 GHz Quad Core Intel Core i5-2500S or 3GHz AMD Phenom II X4 940
RAM: 8 GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6870
GPU RAM: 1024 MB VRAM
HD: 20GB hard drive space
The Titanfall minimum requirements are looking fairly undemanding, with the ever reliable Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS bringing up the rear, along with AMD's Radeon HD 4770. In terms of processor you're going to need a moderately powerful dual-core at minimum to get Titanfall chugging along, along with a fairly sizeable 4GB system memory. Running on Valve's Source engine, we had an inkling that Titanfall wouldn't be overly demanding to get going on minimum system requirements.
As seen in the Xbox One beta though, we'd expect Titanfall to be running with low-resolution textures and an absolute minimum of effects if you're going to want a smooth experience. If you're fine with that though then we'd expect any gaming PC bought within the last four years or so should be capable of getting Titanfall up and running.
While no Titanfall recommended system requirements have officially been released, we feel that judging from the minimum that this is what you're going to need to hit optimum performance. We've contacted Respawn for more information so we'll update them as soon as we receive the Titanfall recommended specs.
The small-scale environments combined with the large-scale battles suggest that Titanfall could be a game that's great when running smoothly but could face sudden frame rate dips when the going gets tough.
To get Titanfall running at a constant crisp 60 frames per second we're expecting you'll need to use a fair bit of firepower, using at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or an AMD Radeon HD 6870. Judging by the Titanfall minimum requirements we would expect to need 8GB memory for Titanfall recommended system requirements.
We'll be sure to update it as soon as we hear concrete info on Titanfall's recommended requirements.
