Some fans weren't too happy when developer Respawn Entertainment revealed that the highly anticipated Titanfall 2 tech test would not include PC. "Hardware variety and 'min spec' optimization" were cited as the reason. But Respawn isn;t letting the PC folks hanging, releasing today the PC specs for the game, as well as a deep dive into all of the different technical wonders that PC players will be able to play with.

First off, the specs. All three versions require 45 GB of hard drive space, DirectX 11 and a 512KBPS for faster internet connection:  

Minimum

OS: Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i3-3600t or equivalent
RAM: 8GB
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB

Recommended

OS: Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 or equivalent
RAM: 16GB
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB

Ultra 4K60

OS: Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700k or equivalent
RAM: 16GB
GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 8GB

"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," producer Drew McCoy said in a blog post. "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."

McCoy also went into a fairly detailed description of the new tech in the game, ran benchmarks on various settings, and even listed the PC options players can use. He also delves into the anti-cheat measures in the game.

"Hopefully enough PC information to get you guys through the next 5 weeks until launch," he said. Titanfall 2 comes out on October 28.

        Are they saying that you can definitely achieve stable 4k60 with that setup?

      Anyone else getting auto-playing video at the bottom of stories now? "Created by Wibbitz"?
      They have the shacknews logo on it. Are they ads?
