I feel like Titanfall 2's just sort of crept up on us. It's out in about five weeks (October 28th) but has been totally overshadowed by the presence of Battlefield 1. For those after a faster-paced, more skill-based shooter then Titanfall 2 could well be the way to go this year, particularly after Respawn took on board so much of the feedback from the recent beta tests. Crucial to the Titanfall 2 experience is playing at a rock solid 60 frames per second for that competitive advantage though. For that you're going to need to tweak the graphics settings to suit your rig. Here's what you can mess around with in Titanfall 2.

Titanfall 2 Video Options

  • HUD Options
  • Display Mode
  • Aspect Ratio
  • Resolution
  • Brightness
  • Field of View
  • Color Blind Mode
  • Smooth Sprint View

Titanfall 2 Advanced Graphics Options

  • V-Sync
  • Anti-aliasing
  • Texture Quality
  • Texture Filtering
  • Sun Shadow Detail
  • Spot Shadow Detail
  • Dynamic Spot Shadows
  • Ambient Occlusion
  • Model Detail
  • Effects Detail
  • Impact Marks
  • Ragdolls

That's a decent if unremarkable list of graphics options to play around with in Titanfall 2. There's the usual glut of resolution choices and thankfully an FOV changer, an irritating oversight if it's ever missed. From a quality of life point of view I find Smooth Sprint View quite an interesting one. I don't remember it being in the original Titanfall, or any game for that matter, and I know quite a lot of people get motion sick from the player character bobbing as they run. It would be neat to see something like this crop up more often as it's actually simpler than the bobbing to implement. I do think there's probably a competitive advantage to having Smooth Sprint View on while playing online though.

Meanwhile Titanfall 2's advanced graphics options have most of the usual bits and bobs we've come to expect. Unfortunately we haven't got any further details on what types of AA are included, but here's hoping it's not just restricted to TSAA like in the picture. Texture Quality goes all the way up to Insane, which I'm always a fan just to show that hitting max shouldn't be seen as a standard expectation - this is only for those with the most extreme gaming rigs.

Everything else is business as usual and pretty similar to the original Titanfall, with a lot revolving around lighting quality and shadow quality. The most demanding of Titanfall 2's graphics options are likely to be Spot Shadow Detail and Dynamic Spot Shadows.

Earlier on we also found Titanfall 2's official system requirements, so be sure to check them out and make sure your rig's up to the task.

Its a good number of options to tweak.Lucky me,i can run it on Ultra 900p at 60fps or more with oc on both my 970 and i5 4440.Hard choice between BF1 and Titanfall.

It's nice that they have the Smooth Sprint View, as I tend to get motion sick if the headbobbing is too much.
