Titanfall 2's new trailer focuses on the pilots, PC version gets system requirements

Respawn Entertainment has released a new trailer for its upcoming sci-fi shooter Titanfall 2 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It focuses on the human pilots and what they can do in the game. Also, the system requirements for the PC version of Titanfall 2 have been revealed.

The new trailer shows off plenty of the parkour moves that the pilots can make in Titanfall 2, along with some of the new weapons and gadgets they can use in the game to take out both Titans and other enemy pilots. Also, the PC version's minimal, recommended and Ultra 4K 60 (FPS) hardware specs were revealed in a separate blog post:


  • 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
  • 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

Some of the PC-specfic features in Titanfall 2 will include:

  • Uncapped framerate up to 144fps (on a 60hz display with V-Sync Disabled you can run up to 144fps)
  • Fully remappable key bindings
  • Mouse acceleration enable/disable
  • Individual localization audio files to reduce download and installation size
  • Gamepad support with multiple configs and sensitivity options
  • Savegame and config stored in the cloud (video and control configs are editable .txt files!)
  • Voice and text chat in-game and in-Network
  • Multiplayer anti-cheat out of the box

All three versions of Titanfall 2 will also support Private Matches out of the box with spectator spots. Respawn does add that if your PC's hardware is below the minimal specs, it might still be possible to run Titanfall 2, but just not at what the developer would consider to be optimal in terms of graphics and performance.

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.

There will also be a bunch of graphics options that can be changed in the PC version of Titanfall 2. You can check them out at the game's blog post. Titanfall 2 is coming from published Electronic Arts on October 28.

  • Titanfall 2 and Gears both in October...what a good month.
  • Couldn't agree more. Both pre-ordered. Just wish we didn't have this glut and they'd spread stuff out more but no doubt Christmas season makes it worth competing vs putting stuff out in a quiet period. Also excited about CoD Infinite/MWRemaster, Battlefield1 which is another 3 games to find time for. Let alone considering Forza Horizons....Just as well Space Hulk Deathwing looks like next year for consoles and only PC this year...For The Emperor
  • That did look really good, the Titans definitely took a back seat in this trailer. The kill animations are nice as long as they don't interfere with gameplay. Don't want to get killed while I'm watching a cut scene of me decapitating some dude.
  • I wish they would add a varity of vehicles like in Halo. 
  • They have vehicles.  They're called titans.  There are 6 of them.
  • Good thing I recently upgraded to 32gb of RAM... Bad thing is my GPU (R9-380) now is the weakest link.
