Titanfall will require 48GB of storage space on the PC according to Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella. Responding to a question on Twitter about how much space the FPS game would need he replied, “About 21GB of download and 48GB installed.” This means that the PC port is more than double the size of the Xbox One version which requires only 20GB.
The multiplayer-only game is being developed using a modified version of Valve’s Source engine. Its minimum PC requirements were revealed, back in February, that the game would run on 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Other requirements included an AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, 512MB of VRAM, and a Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT.
No recommended specifications have been released as of yet.
However, the game’s minimum requirements are almost exactly the same as Battlefield 4’s own, yet DICE’s title only needs 30GB of HDD space. Titanfall may feature large mechs and AI bots, but it could not be enough to justify the need for so much space on the PC.
Titanfall will launch March 11 in North America and March 13 in Europe for the Xbox One and PC platforms. While the Xbox 360 version has been pushed back to March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe.
