Respawn entertainment has revealed the PC requirements for Titanfall 2 and they have provided the suggested requirements for 1080p as well as 4K resolutions.
Compared to consoles, PC gaming is growing at a rapid pace. Microsoft is supposed to catch up with it when they launch Xbox Scorpio next year while PS5 is nowhere in the horizon. Sony will take its own sweet time to announce the hardware. Meanwhile, 4K gaming has become viable on PCs because of cheaper Nvidia and AMD cards.
If you are looking forward to play Titanfall 2 in glorious 4K resolution with 60 frames per second, you need an i7 processor with 16 GB of RAM and the top end NvidiaGeforce GTX 1080 8GB card. The settings can be on ultra with the best graphical experience. For a moderate experience on a 1080p monitor, Respawn suggests you need i5 processor, 16 GB of RAM and Nvidia GTX 1060 6 GB card or AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB graphics card.
The recommended requirements are designed for HD monitors and they look pretty decent. Pricing of these cards are quite affordable and even if you are still running games on an old PC, you can simply swap them with the newest card without upgrading the processor or other components. The game will still run but it might be important to tweak the graphic settings accordingly.
Over a dozen different graphical options are provided by the developers that makes Titanfall 2 highly versatile on the PC platform. With so many options, custom graphics should allow the game to run even on a lower machine that uses i3, 8 GB of RAM and GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 card. These are the minimum requirements according to the team.
Electronic Arts is behind Respawn entertainment and the game which was an Xbox One exclusive in the past is now available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It lacked a single player campaign but as players demanded it, the company has decided to integrate it in the new version.
From the recommended 1080p and 4K specifications, it is evident that Titanfall 2 will be a properly optimized game for PCs. The company didn’t allow PC players to experience the game in open beta because they assumed it might lead to files getting leaked. If the final product is good, a missed beta may not matter much. Launch date is pegged at October 28. You can read the official post here.
