Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It builds on the signature Pilot and Titan combat the series is known for, to provide a deeper, more robust experience for some innovative, unique, and exciting gameplay. Titanfall 2 was highly recommend by a couple of friends so I decided to try it out on the latest Radeon graphics cards.
The game itself has the following reasonable requirements:
- OS – Win 7/8/8.1/10 64bit.
- CPU – AMD Athlon X4 Processor or Intel Core i3-6300t
- RAM – 8GB.
- HDD Free Space – 45GB.
- GPU – AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB or NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 2GB
- DirectX® 11
- Internet Connection – 512Kbps or faster.
For the purpose of my gameplay testing – I used an AMD FX 8370 with 16GB DDR3, Windows 10 64 bit (latest updates), and Radeon Settings Crimson Edition 16.11.2. I fired up the single player edition and played through the opening level a few times to come up with the following recommendations for smooth gameplay.
Most of the time I found myself just cranking up the settings as far as they could go. Then I would play around with the Anti-Aliasing settings to get the targeted frame-rate I was gunning for. Ambient Occlusion is another good option to disable if your particular setup needs extra performance. Most of the time, changing a setting showed the change in frame-rate automatically so it is pretty easy to get to a target on your specific map quickly.
As a single player gamer myself, I’d say this one holds an interesting appeal. There hasn’t been much love towards well written single player campaigns in a while, and for me Titanfall 2 is up there with the best. Intense combat, interesting platform plus first person shooter dynamics, and smooth gameplay on my Radeon RX 470 makes this game stand out for me.
