Titanfall 2 multiplayer screenshot showcasing plenty of mechs

As someone that always trailed a few steps behind the latest and greatest in PC technology I've become rather accustomed to looking up system requirements. I say this because in all my years I have never seen a developer write a longer, or more detailed explanation of what sort of hardware you'll need to play their game than Titanfall 2's Drew McCoy!

If you're interested in all of the details, and this includes several graphs showcasing the FPS fluctuations at different settings, you can find them by heading over here. On the other hand, if you're just looking for the system requirements, here they are:

Minimum

OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit

CPU - Intel Core i3-3600t or equivalent

RAM - 8GB

HDD Free Space - 45GB

GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB

DirectX - 11

Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

Recommended

OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit

CPU - Intel Core i5-6600 or equivalent

RAM - 16GB

HDD Free Space - 45GB

GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB

DirectX - 11

Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

Ultra 4K60

OS - Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit

CPU - Intel Core i7-6700k or equivalent

RAM - 16GB

HDD Free Space - 45GB

GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 8GB

DirectX - 11

Internet Connection - 512Kbps or faster

Given the rather hefty system requirements I'm sure many among you are wondering if weaker machines will be able to play it all, and if so, will it be a muddy, blurry mess? Well, here's what McCoy had to say about Titanfall 2 and its "minimum" and "recommended" settings:

"So, what does it mean when we say "minimum" or "recommended"? Since this is a variable standard across the entire industry I think it is important for me to detail the kind of experience you can hope to expect. In the past minimum specs were literally the minimum bar to launch the game - your experience once in the game was probably not going to be ideal. Our goal for minimum PC specs on Titanfall 2 is that you can play at a 1600x900 resolution with most details turned on and average around 60fps.

We strongly believe that if you at least match the posted requirements you should have an excellent visual and gameplay experience playing the game, so don’t be alarmed if you boot it up and don’t need to turn all the settings to Low for playable framerates – our artists would actually like if you could see their work! Because of this you will probably be able to actually run the game on a lower-than-minimum spec PC, but the quality and performance won’t quite be ideal.

For recommended PC specs we're aiming for details nearly maxed out, 1920x1080 resolution (2560x1440 is also very playable), and again an average of 60fps or higher. We chose the minimum specs with 60fps in mind for the pure gameplay benefits you get once at 60fps (and beyond!)."

If this is the sort of care the developers have put into the obligatory "this is what the system requirements are" post, I have a feeling Titanfall 2 is going to be one amazing PC port! Whether its going to be an amazing game or not, that I can't tell you, but we won't have to wait for too long in order to find out as Titanfall 2 will be releasing for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 28.
