To Play Titanfall You Will Need 64-bit Windows, 4GB RAM, More

By - Source: Polygon | B 41 comments

Respawn Entertainment has revealed the minimum system requirements for the upcoming shooter, Titanfall.

Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella jumped on Twitter and provided the minimum system requirements for the upcoming game, Titanfall. The news arrives after Zampella said via Twitter that fans will not be required to pre-purchase the game in order to take part in the Titanfall beta.

"#supersecret announcement time. I'm sure no one has been able to guess from the leaks. PC and XboxOne Beta! Details in the coming days," Zampalla tweeted on January 27. He added that the beta is actually waiting to go through EA certification before it's officially announced. Zampalla also said that the beta codes will not be region locked.

As for the minimum specs, potential customers will need a 64-bit operating system, including Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Gamers will also need an AMD Athlon X2 clocked at 2.8 GHz or an Intel Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.4 GHz. Additional requirements consist of 4 GB RAM, 512 MB of VRAM, Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT.

Note the Windows only requirement. One Twitter user asked if there will be no Mac support, and Zampella responded by saying "talking about it, would like to see it happen. Would have to be after launch."

Another Twitter user asked if beta participants will be able to upload videos to YouTube. "Should be, it won't be restricted like the alpha," Zampella tweeted.

Respawn manager Abbie Heppe is also answering questions on Twitter. When asked about how many maps there will be, types of modes, and the number of Titans, she confirmed that the beta will only have three Titans to use.

Titanfall is an upcoming first-person shooter slated to arrive this March 11 for Windows PC, the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game is in development by Respawn Entertainment and will be published by Electronic Arts.

    I'm glad I don't need to upgrade my HD5770, I will be getting this game when it's $20 in 6 months.

    EA paid betas. By the time they fix most of the bugs, the sequel it out and no one plays the old one anymore.

    That's nothing compared to my: 12-core Xeon @ 5.2 GHz, 64 GB of RAM, 3x GTX 780 Ti, 2x 1TB SSDs in RAID-0, Windows 8.1 64-bit Ultimate, Triple surround 30" 7680 x 1600

    I wonder if Titanfall will support 64-bit Windows XP.

    Bunch of whimps buying latest gear. I, on the other hand know the real value of hardware. My Q600 @ 3.2ghz, 4gb DDR2 800mhz Ram, GTX 550Ti, and 22 inch 1680x 1050 monitor still kicks ass and does play every game ratger well except COD Ghost for some reason. From the looks of it, the only upcoming game worthy of an upgrade is Star Citizen.

    The 4770 is clearly superior to the 8800GT. I found this amusing when I once saw the requirements for Aion to be a 9800GT/4850 when the 4830 would do just fine.An Athlon X2 on the other hand... is no match for a Core 2 Duo even with a 400MHz clock speed advantage. You'd need a Phenom II X2 instead for parity.

    i'm just glad my 2006 PC is still better than an XBLOCK1as far as the game goes. HAWKEN has titanfall beat hands down.

    "One Twitter user asked if there will be no Mac support" - Really? Motivation for hitting less than 10% of the PC market, and I would guess closer to 1% of the PC gaming market, yea, they'll get right on that.

    "the beta is actually waiting to go through EA certification"Is this the very same EA certification that Battlefield 4 went through?

    Extremely low requirements considering the RAM and 64-bit restriction. I imagine that has a lot to do with the ancient Source Engine platform, and also the title being held back by the underwhelming new "next-gen" consoles.In any case it will be fun to try ou this "demo" before the game launches in March.

    This game is SOOO hyped. Usually games like that crash and burn HARD. Fingers crossed.... not sure if I'm impressed yet or not based on what I've seen. Microsoft really believes in it, so I kind of think it will be a winner. They usually don't get behind games that end up being stupid.
