EA Origin will be required to play Titanfall on PCs

IGN reports that a tweet from Respawn head Vince Zampella has been posted that gives some bad news for Titanfall fans on the PC. The game is still coming to the PC, but it will require gamers to install EA Origin to play. Other games that EA has published recently don’t have this requirement.

Since the game is expected to be one of the biggest PC titles of the year, EA is obviously taking the opportunity to expand the install base for its digital software and game store. Zampella also said that the beta that will kick off before the game launches would also require Origin.

The announcement that Origin would be required for Titanfall came in response to a tweet from a gamer called John Connorski. He tweeted at Zampella asking, "Most important requirement to me, does it require Origin? If it does, it's a lost sale from me. Steam is the answer."

Zampella replied writing, "@Klink77 yes it does, we'll miss you :("

Perhaps even more annoying than having to have Origin on your machine is that Titanfall will require a 64-bit Windows OS of Windows 7 or higher. That means any gamer still plugging away with a rig running XP or Vista will have to upgrade.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
