Titanfall PC system requirements — you’re gonna need EA’s Origin

You’ll never get the chance to play Titanfall on PlayStation 4, and if you own my crappy Best Buy eMachine desktop, then you’ll never get to play it on PC, either.

Vince Zampella, the boss at Titanfall studio Respawn Entertainment, has finally revealed the minimum requirements to run the shooter on PC. The game is due out March 11 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, but the developer is also planning to run an open beta for the PC and Xbox One versions some time this month. In addition to divulging the hardware specs, Zampella also revealed Titanfall will need EA’s PC gaming client Origin.

Titanfall is the first game from Respawn. It is an online shooter that has players taking the role of a future soldier who can double jump and run on walls. Gamers can also rack up points to call in their Titan, which is a giant robot that they can pilot or instruct to follow them around like a loyal puppy with a rail gun.

If you’re on PC and wondering if you have the firepower to handle the mechanized-warrior action, check out the minimum requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1
  • CPU: AMD Ahtlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
  • Memory: 4GB RAM
  • GPU: 512MB RAM: Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT

That’s not exactly a robust computer, which makes sense. Titanfall runs on the same Valve Source engine that powers Portal, Half-Life 2, and Team Fortress 2.

For comparison, Battlefield 4 requires at least an Intel Core i5 CPU and Call of Duty: Ghosts needs at least 6GB RAM.

While you won’t need a top-end PC, you will have to use EA’s Origin service. This is the publisher’s PC game store and networking client. The company uses it for Battlefield 4 and some of its other PC games.
