Titanfall won't take up as much of your Xbox One hard drive space as previously thought. Respawn Entertainment community manager Abbie Heppe confirmed on Twitter that the game will require a 20GB install, not "up to 40GB," as was reported on Monday.
The 40GB figure came from the packaging of the special-edition Titanfall Xbox One bundle. Heppe told DualShockers that the discrepancy was probably due to the fact that the packaging was created before the final file size was confirmed.
At 20GB, Titanfall is significantly smaller than other popular shooters like Battlefield 4 (33GB) and Call of Duty: Ghosts (39GB). Notably, however, Titanfall does not feature a traditional single-player campaign like those other two games, which no doubt affects the file size.
Meanwhile, the PC version of Titanfall requires at least 50GB of free hard drive space. The game's hefty size on PC could come down to a number of elements, including its reported "Insane" texture resolution setting. The full minimum requirements for Titanfall are listed below.
- OS: Windows Vista SP2 64-bit / Windows 7 SP1 64-bit / Windows 8 64-bit
- CPU: AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz / Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
- RAM: At least 4 GB
- HARD DRIVE: At least 50 GB of free space
- VIDEO: AMD Radeon HD 4770 with 512MB RAM or better / Nvidia GeForce 8800GT with 512MB RAM or better
- DirectX: DirectX 11
- INPUT: Keyboard and mouse, Microsoft Gamepad
- ONLINE CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS: 512kbps down and 384kbps up or faster Internet connection
Developed by a team of former Call of Duty designers, including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella, Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC. An Xbox 360 version--developed externally at Bluepoint Games--will launch two weeks later on March 25.
