A little over a month out from launch, Respawn Entertainment has revealed the minimum PC system requirements for their hotly anticipated multiplayer shooter Titanfall.

Via Twitter, Respawn founder Vince Zampella shared the following:
Min: 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 8.1 AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz 4GB RAM 512MB VRAM, Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT

— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) February 4, 2014
The Nvidia card named is indeed the 512MB workhorse from the manufacturer's GeForce 8 series, that dates back to 2007, suggesting the game's quality levels on PC must scale up quite significantly to what we've seen in gameplay footage and preview events.

Responding to a fan question about whether Titanfall could be delivered via Steam, or require EA's Origin client, Zampella confirmed that Origin will indeed be mandatory.

It is still looking unlikely that the game will have locally hosted Australian servers at launch, but we should at least be able to get a feel for how the game will run during the open beta period, expected around February 14th, which Zampella also recently confirmed will not necessarily require a pre-order to participate in.

Titanfall is due on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 13th 2014.

I guess we have folks from all over the world post here (which is nice) but i cant see any Australian resident getting excited about this game until they do something about local servers

so, are there dedicated servers or similar? just not in aus? or is it going to be p2p with the cloud handling server side AI shit? im not sure i really understand whats being said regarding the servers. So, is LAN play out?

Has there been no official word on the server situation yet? It's a pretty major detail for a shooter and surprised no one has asked them yet or they refuse to reveal the details. oO. Do they think players won't care or something?

@Trex0321: As far as we understand it, the dedicated servers will all be run by the developer/publisher on Microsoft's Azure cloud services infrastructure. Essentially, it's a big walled up system with a large amount of computing power available with datacentres all around the world, but none in Australia yet.

It's in contrast to games like Battlefield 4, where the developer distributes a standalone dedicated server package that can be run by third party companies on their own hardware like AusGamers.

There's been no word on offline LAN play, but I would be incredibly surprised if they supported it, as it would undermine the stance they're taking with the everything-online nature of the game.

@Herron: We've asked, but I suspect it's tied up in convoluted legalese with their Xbox exclusivity deal. It's likely that they're contractually not allowed to say anything disparaging about Xbox One or the cloud services it uses. And Microsoft is clearly not ready to set an opening date for its planned NSW and VIC Azure datacentres.

Origin Mandatory he said eh? No thanks, I don't want EA trash on my PC.

This reminds me of the Humble EA Bundle last year, Dead Space 3 was included and it's Origin only, to this day I still haven't activated the key.

Requiring Origin to be installed makes it less attractive for me to get excited about this game.

Why dont they put it in on Steam. In the end of the day it's sales right?

because EA won't want steam to get a cut when they sell titans as DLC.

Well servers and Origin aside, does anyone else look at those specs and maybe get the sinking feeling that this might, just might, be a heaving piece of console port crapola?

Its the source engine. I'm pretty sure your toaster could run it. These specs were to be expected.

Actually was mildly interested in this game but living in AUS there is literally no reason to buy it yet.
Tollaz0r!

I was interested in it, however no Aus servers on launch + Requiring Origin = no buy. It was already teetering on the no buy list because EA have a finger in the pie, this just seals the deal.
