While Titanfall is an undeniably pretty game, it doesn't pack hundreds of characters on screen at once and in reality there's only going to be a few human players in each game - so perhaps it's no surprise that the system requirements aren't that bad at all.
These aren't necessarily official, in that they come from a press release, but the Tweets that outed the information were by Vince Zampella, co-founder of Infinity Ward and Respawn, so you can put at least a bit of faith in them.
"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 idea that you'll be able to play the latest and greatest PC shooter on an 8800GT and a Core 2 Duo is pretty encouraging for people rocking ancient hardware, but of course the recommended and ultra specs will be a lot higher - we just don't know what they are yet.
In response to the news, Vince's fans took it in a new direction and pestered him about an open beta, to which he said:
"Need to put a build through certification and pass before we officially announce a date for beta."
It's confirmed that there will be one, we just don't know if we're talking days or weeks. However, we do know Respawn is considering a non-Windows OS version, which means Mac and Linux gamers could potentially dive in and gun down enemies right alongside their Windows cousins.
Who here is excited for Titanfall?
