UPDATE 05/02/2014: As expected, the PC version of Titanfall requires EA's digital platform Origin to play.
The news was confirmed by Respawn chief Vince Zampella on Twitter overnight after a follower said he wouldn't buy the game if it used Origin.
"We'll miss you :(" was Zampella's response. Then: "I'll also ask that you give origin a try for the beta, costs you nothing."
Of course, you don't need Origin for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions.
Like Titanfall, role-playing game Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was developed by an independent studio and published by EA, but it did not require Origin to play.
ORIGINAL STORY: Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella has tweeted the minimum PC system requirements for the highly anticipated first-person shooter Titanfall.
It will require:
- 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
When asked about a Mac release, Zampella replied "talking about it, would like to see it happen. Would have to be after launch."
Titanfall will launch on 14th March in the UK on PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360. North American will receive it three days earlier on 11th March.
