The release of Titanfall, the years first potential blockbuster, is less than a week away so it's probably a good time to check to see if your PC will be up for the challenge of running the game. The game's minimum PC system requirements were released back in late February and shows that the game is a monster. Taking up nearly 50GB of HDD space and requiring 4GB of RAM.
Titanfall Minimum PC System Requirements:
OS: Windows 7, 8. 8.1 64 Bit
GPU: Radeon HD 4770+ or GeForce 8800GT+
GPU RAM: 512MB
In my opinion these higher "minimum" requirements are a good thing for the PC since many PC rigs have technical specs that exceed the next gen gaming systems. Its also something we should get use to now that the next generation of console gaming is upon us since the release of the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
