Just this afternoon Vince Zampella from the developer group Respawn let it be known what the minimum specifications would be for the PC version of the mech-driving game Titanfall. This is a widely-anticipated title made for both the PC and the Xbox One, with a beta coming up for both platforms some time this month. While the final game is set to be released in March, users are already testing the Alpha (and near-Beta) right this minute.
According to Zambella, users will need AMD or NVIDIA graphics cards, a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or above, and a few other minor bits. Or an Xbox One, of course. These specifications have been gleaned by play-testers and the developers after extensive testing with the game on the PC end of things. Well before now – we must expect – the game has already been optimized for the Xbox One platform.
Min: 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 8.1
AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
512MB VRAM, Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT
It’s also been shared this week by Zampella that the Titanfall Beta keys sent out to playtesters will not be region-specific. This will be done to test all regions responsiveness and – in announcing this – Respawn effectively lets the world know that they’re aiming this game at the whole planet, not just a few small places where some games are prone to launch.
At the moment the team is still putting a build through certification – once it’s passed, the team will be able to announced a date for the beta, and we’ll all be able to jump in and start crushing one-another with giant robots with glee. Also of note is the fact that this beta is not in any way tied to pre-orders – if you pre-ordered the game, you wont necessarily be given access to a Beta build, and those that are playing the Beta build wont necessarily be given access to the final game. Fair is fair!
