  1. PC gamers were disappointed to learn that Titanfall 2’s multiplayer beta wouldn’t be available on their chosen platform last month. Because of this decision, there was concern that Respawn Entertainment may put more of its efforts into the console versions of the upcoming game.

    But a new blog post on the Titanfall 2 official website shows that the PC hasn’t been forgotten. It lists the minimum, recommended, and ultra 4k60 specs for the game, along with the many video settings that will be available for the PC version.

    Minimum:

    • OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
    • CPU - Intel Core i3-3600t or equivalent
    • RAM - 8GB
    • HDD Free Space - 45GB
    • GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
    • DirectX - 11
    • Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

    Recommended:

    • OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
    • CPU - Intel Core i5-6600 or equivalent
    • RAM - 16GB
    • HDD Free Space - 45GB
    • GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
    • DirectX - 11
    • Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

    Ultra 4K60:

    • OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
    • CPU - Intel Core i7-6700k or equivalent
    • RAM - 16GB
    • HDD Free Space - 45GB
    • GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 8GB
    • DirectX - 11
    • Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

    Titanfall 2 will run on specs even lower than those minimum recommendations, though it won't look very good. “In the past minimum specs were literally the minimum bar to launch the game—your experience once in the game was probably not going to be ideal. Our goal for minimum PC specs on Titanfall 2 is that you can play at a 1600x900 resolution with most details turned on and average around 60fps,” wrote producer Drew McCoy.

    “We strongly believe that if you at least match the posted requirements you should have an excellent visual and gameplay experience playing the game, so don’t be alarmed if you boot it up and don’t need to turn all the settings to Low for playable framerates—our artists would actually like if you could see their work!"

    The recommended specs should allow a 1920 X 1080 resolution with the settings “nearly maxed out” at 60 frames per second or higher. 2560 X 1440 is also said to be very playable with this hardware. Hitting the magical 60 fps in 4K takes a beefy card like the GTX 1080, naturally.

    The blog goes into extreme detail when listing the various PC features (max 144 fps), new technology (extra spicy temporal supersample anti-aliasing), and video options (21:9 aspect ratio, ragdolls) in the game. There are even some benchmark graphs to check out.

    Titanfall 2 launches for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 28.

    This will be a broken mess at launch. The lack of pc beta pretty much guarantees it.

    Meh, this falls in the bag of games where Watch Dogs 2 is too: game sequels no one asked for.

    Looks exactly like the first one...shallow gameplay.

    I hope that is what they actually call it, and should also have an "Original Recipe supersample anti-aliasing".

    "Our goal for minimum PC specs on Titanfall 2 is that you can play at a 1600x900 resolution with most details turned on and average around 60fps"

    So....recommended specs

    Why can't people stop talking like this? Because you hated the first game, or just didn't like it, there are people out there, who had fun with it, and want a sequel...

    For example, I will buy Watch Dogs 2. Not on day 1, because I need to complete Dishonored 2 first.

    I also enjoyed the first one, and will be purchasing Titanfall 2. Sales MUST have been good enough for them to consider making a second, and demand must say so as well. Sorry, you are the odd one out on this maybe? :p
    Luckily, I meet these specs. Unluckily I still cant do 4K, because they fail to put in the requirements you still need a 4K monitor. ^_^ lol (It's my next upgrade in my plans)

    Titanfalls engine ruined what seemed like a pretty good game for me, if that has been sorted in this new one I may be able to actually enjoy it.
