Nvidia is making available a Titanfall 2 trailer that should put a smile on the faces of hardcore PC enthusiasts, with the game running at 4K with 60fps.
Nvidia has a special surprise for potential Titanfall 2 PC gamers today. With a slew of high profile online multiplayer shooters planned to launch over the next three months, PC gamers are garnering a significant amount of attention. The best way to do that is, of course, to blow their minds with gameplay videos running on powerful PCs. Today's Titanfall 2 trailer is a great example of that, showcasing what Titanfall 2 looks like running at max settings with 4K resolution and at 60 frames per second.
Those with 4K monitors and capable PC hardware will be treated to a sneak peak of what Respawn has put together for the PC port of Titanfall 2. There's three minutes of uninterrupted action, from Pilots battling it out mano-a-mano, Titans fighting at both range and melee, and a firsthand look at the game's bounty game mode. There's nary a hitch in the smooth 60fps throughout the entire trailer, as well. For those without 4K setups, don't worry -- the trailer still looks gorgeous at 1080p or below.
The content of the trailer won't be anything new to those who have been following the news surrrounding Titanfall 2 for an extended period of time. The trailer is meant to appeal to the 4K gaming crowd and the PC gamers that dream of being able to support such a demanding experience on their future hardware. As such, the 4K Titanfall 2 trailer is perhaps more an Nvidia advertisement than marketing for the game itself.
Nvidia's 4K Titanfall 2 trailer comes attached to the previously released PC specifications for the multiplayer shooter. Those wanting to run a 4K and 60 FPS Titanfall 2 setup themselves will have to shell out for some pretty impressive hardware. While Nvidia doesn't state what hardware the trailer is running on, it is said that in order to experience 4K and 60 FPS at home there's only one card to buy -- the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. That lines up with Respawn's specifications for 4K gaming, naturally.
For 1080p gaming, Respawn's technical specifications are still demanding. Recommended settings require an Nvidia Geforce 1060 or an AMD Radeon RX 480, each card running well over $200. Luckily the minimum specifications are somewhat more easily met, so long as 45GB of open hard drive space isn't an issue. Respawn seems to have done an excellent job creating scalability for their game, a meaningful change from the issues that were had with the original Titanfall's PC port.
Titanfall 2 is scheduled to launch on October 28 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
