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

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.
