‘Titanfall 2’ minimum specifications set a comfortably low bar for older PCs

titanfall 2 pc specs 0003
Respawn Entertainment has unveiled the minimum and recommended specs for the PC version of Titanfall 2 and it looks pretty forgiving, unless you want to run the game in 4K.

Titanfall 2 is still more than a month away, so you still have time to get your PC up to spec, but chances are you will not have to. The latest entry in the Titanfall series follows in the footsteps of the original game by providing comfortably low minimum specs without sacrificing detail for the higher end of the PC-performance spectrum.

In order to run Titanfall 2 without the game looking like a slideshow, you will need at least an Intel Core i3-6300T, 8GB of RAM and either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 with 2GB of RAM or an AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB.

So even if your PC is a little long in the tooth, you will probably be able to get in on the giant-robot-fighting action without too much trouble. Your game will not look great, but it will run.

Right in the middle of the spectrum you have the recommended specs required to run Titanfall 2 in 1080p with high graphical detail and they are a little more demanding but right in line with Titanfall’s competitors.

You will need an Intel Core i5-6600 or equivalent, 16GB of RAM, and either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, or AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB. Nothing too painful, you might want to upgrade your RAM if your PC is a little behind the curve, but they are not the most demanding specs in recent releases.

On the other hand, if you want to get the most out of Titanfall 2, with every detail setting maxed out, running the game in 4K, you are going to need the latest and greatest. For 4K and 60 FPS, Respawn Entertainment recommends an Intel Core i7-6700K, 16GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB of RAM.

Titanfall 2 drops next month on October 28.
