Mirror’s Edge Catalyst System Requirements Revealed

Mirror’s Edge is one of the most inventive games in recent memory due to the enthralling first person perspective and intense parkour mechanics. Furthermore, you feel a sense of being vulnerable and have to rely on your evasion skills instead of traditional weaponry. Personally, I absolutely adore the Mirror’s Edge formula and cannot wait for its sequel, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst which is currently scheduled for release on May 24th in the US. EA has just released the minimum PC requirements prior to the game’s release:

MINIMUM:

  • OS: Windows® 7 64-Bit (use the latest Service Pack)
  • CPU: Intel i3-3250 / AMD FX-6350. (Note: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst requires at least 4 logical cores to run.)
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: At least 25 GB of free space
  • VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 650 Ti 2GB or better / AMD Radeon R9 270x or better
  • INPUT: Keyboard and mouse, dual analogue controller

RECOMMENDED:

  • OS: Windows® 10 64-Bit (use the latest Service Pack)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 at 3.4 GHz / AMD FX-8350 at 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: At least 25 GB of free space
  • VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970 4GB or better / AMD Radeon R9 280x 3GB or better
  • INPUT: Keyboard and mouse, dual analogue controller

Most PC gamers with a relatively modern system should be able to play the game without any complications. However, quoted specifications rarely give an insight into a game’s optimization and there’s no information regarding the resolution used. On the other hand, 16GB of RAM is a large amount considering a large number of people are still using 8GB. As always, we will have a performance analysis report which outlines the frame-rate across various graphics cards.

Are you looking forward to Mirror’s Edge Catalyst?

Everybody’s Gone to The Rapture PC Requirements Released

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is an enthralling adventure game set in the idyllic Shropshire countryside. Developed by The Chinese Room, the game was well received and praised for its gorgeous visual design. Furthermore, the accompanying soundtrack is sublime and greatly enhances the tense experience. Initially, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture launched as an exclusive PlayStation 4 title and is now making it’s way to the PC platform. Here’s a brief synopsis of what the game entails in the developer’s own words:

“Deep within the Shropshire countryside, the village of Yaughton stands empty. Toys lie forgotten in the playground, the wind blows quarantine leaflets around the silent churchyard. Down on Appleton’s farm, crops rustle untended. The birds lie where they have fallen.

Strange voices haunt the radio waves as uncollected washing hangs listlessly on the line. The televisions are tuned to vacant channels. Above it all, the telescopes of the Observatory point out at dead stars and endless darkness. And someone remains behind, to try and unravel the mystery.
Immerse yourself in a rich, deep adventure from award-winning developer The Chinese Room and investigate the last days of Yaughton Valley. Uncover the traces of the vanished community; discover fragments of events and memories to piece together the mystery of the apocalypse.”

As with any new release on Steam, the developer has listed the game’s requirements listed below:

MINIMUM:

    • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1) or 64-bit Windows 10
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-4570T 2.9 GHz / AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti / AMD Radeon HD 6850
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 8 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
    • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770S 3.1 GHz / AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 / AMD Radeon HD 7970
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 8 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

The minimum specification is fairly modest and should run on relatively modern systems.

Doom Beta System Requirements Revealed

Are you looking forward to playing the new Doom? I know I am! The game has been a long time coming and with the idea of revisiting the iconic series again, I can’t help but get drawn in by memories of my gaming youth, playing a pixilated Doom a Dell laptop. Of course, the days of DOS and floppy disks is long behind us and the latest enter in the doom series needs a lot more grunt to run than the original.

If you’re hyping up to play the beta, which you can be certain won’t be well optimized, then you’re going to need for some fairly decent hardware. but it shouldn’t be out of reach for most mid range and above PC gamers.

Minimum Spec (720p)

  • Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i5-2400 or better / AMD FX-8320 or better
  • 8 GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) or better / AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB) or better
  • Up to 22GB HDD space
  • Steam account
  • Broadband internet connection

*Please note that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and mobile GPUs are not supported for the DOOM Beta. Please check back later for minimum or recommended system specs for the final game

Recommended Spec (1080p)

  • Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i7-3770 or better / AMD FX-8350 or better
  • 8GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB) or better / AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB) or better
  • Up to 22GB HDD space
  • Steam account
  • Broadband internet connection

No doubt the final game will support a wider range of hardware, at least in terms of improved performance, but for now, is your system ready to play Doom?

Remember, if you want to play the Beta, you needed to grab a beta code via the Wolfenstein: The New Order, two years ago! Don’t worry though, I’m sure there will be an open beta soon enough.

Gears of War Ultimate Edition PC System Requirements Revealed

Gears of War is one of Epic Games’ largest franchises, getting players to fight in a world with anything from a revolver or chainsaw to a satellite laser (yes, we liked that one too). After the franchise was sold to Microsoft though it became clear that the series was all but over, now it would seem that it only works if you are looking at a rather large computer thanks to the specs that were revealed by a windows 10 store page. The page is now offline but dsogaming were quick enough to capture the information before it was gone.

The specification for the Gears of War remake, Gears Of War: Ultimate edition are as followed:

Minimum System Requirements:

Processor: Intel Core i5 @ 2.7Ghz or AMD FX 6-core
Memory: 8GB RAM (2 GB VRAM)
Graphics: Geforce GTX 650 Ti or Radeon R7 260x
Hard Drive: 60GB available space

Recommended System Requirements for 1920x1080p

Processor: Intel Core i5 @ 3.5Ghz or AMD FX 8-core
Memory: 16GB RAM (4 GB VRAM)
Graphics: Geforce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290X
Hard Drive: 60GB available space

Recommended System Requirements for 4k

Processor: Intel Core i7 @ 4Ghz or AMD FX 8-core
Memory: 8GB RAM (6+ GB VRAM)
Graphics: Geforce GTX 980 Ti or Radeon R9 390X
Hard Drive: SSD + 60GB available space

While it’s nice to see some variety in the specs, the first thing people might notice is that it goes all the way up to 4k. Why not though when the game also requires you to have Windows 10 (version 1511 minimum) and Direct X 12. Using their latest library Direct X has certainly appealed to a wide audience with its graphics, but with the recommended specs being on the upper end for modern releases, is your PC ready to run the game and save the world?

Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo System Requirements Revealed

The PC platform has always been home to a wealth of exhilarating rallying games including Richard Burns Rally, the original DIRT and WRC. Furthermore, Codemasters recently returned to their traditional roots and created DIRT Rally, a fiendishly difficult simulator which requires skill, and stage memorization. Another developer, Milestone held the WRC rights for some time and created a number of officially licensed games. However, many users became disgruntled with the iterative yearly updates, poor performance and lacklustre graphics. As a company, they’ve always promised to deliver, and consistently improving, but it’s been at a slower pace than most racing fans expected.

Despite losing the expensive WRC license, Milestone decided to partner with the most successful rally driver in history, Sébastien Loeb. It’s hard to imagine but Loeb won the WRC a record 9 times in a row which I honestly think will never be matched. Judging from the screenshots released so far, the game looks quite good but it’s always going to depend on the physics model. I’ve learnt to be quite pessimistic with Milestone games as they’ve never really matched my expectations. Today, the studio released a demo which you can easily download from Steam and the system requirements:

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 10
    • Processor: Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz / AMD A6-3670K 2,7 GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Gigabyte GF GTX 660Ti / Radeon R9 270X
    • DirectX: Version 10
    • Storage: 30 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows Pro 8.1 / Windows 10
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz / AMD FX-6300 Six-Core
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 / Radeon R9 290
    • DirectX: Version 11

As expected, the minimum requirements are fairly modest and should run on a wide array of systems. Also, the 30GB install isn’t a major inconvenience compared to many recent games surpassing 50GB.  In terms of the recommend specification, you will need a pretty decent graphics card, and it’s quite confusing to see the GTX 960 and R9 290 being grouped together as equivalents. Ideally, I’d prefer developers to provide a resolution for each set of requirements so the consumer can make an accurate decision if the game will work well on their hardware.

XCOM 2 System Requirements Revealed

XCOM: Enemy Unknown revisited the classic XCOM formula while adding a modern twist. This resulted in an incredibly challenging turn-based tactics game which managed to cater to passionate XCOM aficionados. On launch, there were some pretty noticeable bugs that marred the tense tactical encounters. Thankfully, most of these annoyances were fixed fairly swiftly. Eventually, the game made its way onto the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but this always seemed a little awkward given the lack of mouse controls. In lieu of the reboot’s success, developer Fireaxis is releasing a sequel in February 2016. Currently, the game is scheduled to be a PC exclusive but that could easily change. Recently, an official Steam listing was added for XCOM 2 which outlines the game’s premise and system requirements:

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows® 7, 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core 2.6 GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5770, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or better
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 45 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card
    • Additional Notes: Initial installation requires one-time Internet connection for Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, Microsoft Visual C++2012 and 2013 Runtime Libraries and Microsoft DirectX.

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: Windows® 7, 64-bit
    • Processor: 3GHz Quad Core
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 2GB ATI Radeon HD 7970, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 or better
    • Storage: 45 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card

As expected, XCOM 2’s graphical style and turn-based combat doesn’t require a top-end computer and should work on the majority of hardware quite nicely. This is great news and makes the game more accessible to a wider audience. Notice that it does take up a large amount of hard disk space but this is a fairly moderate by today’s standards.

Are you looking forward to XCOM 2?

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen PC Screenshots Released

Dragon’s Dogma, the best RPG of a generation that you’ve likely never played! Of course, if you’re fortunate to have known about or  played the PlayStation 3 original, you’re certainly a very lucky gamer. The game is a throwback to the RPG epics that dominated the PS2-era of gaming, huge open world, complex character building, insane monsters and terrifying difficulty are all present in this lore-rich game.

With all that in mind, you’ll be glad to hear that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is heading to PC and looking at the new screenshots, things are progressing nicely. Capcom’s Senior Director of Digital Platforms, William Bacon, stated that the PC version of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will use original, uncompressed assets, so it should look a lot better than the somewhat blurry original release.

“While textures won’t compare to current gen titles built from the ground up, the assets in DDDA PC will look better than past gen console versions since they’re original, uncompressed assets.” said William.

What’s even better than the screenshots is that the official PC system requirements will be revealed next month, possibly around December 3rd. William added that a high-end GPU should be able to push the game at 4K/60fps, so it’s nice to know they’re going to support the resolution, and with any luck, perhaps even 21:9 support.

Mad Max System Requirements Revealed

Warner Bros. really did a number with its recent titles. Mortal Kombat was a disaster due to its console porting to PC and let’s not get started on Batman: Arkham Knight. I mean, when you are forced to suspend all sales of a title after it gets launched, you know it’s bad.

Nevertheless, Mad Max is almost here, and we can just hope that this one will actually be optimized. However, Warner Bros. seems to have covered their backs a bit here, asking for a 6GB minimum RAM. I know games are becoming more demanding, but upping it to 6GB as a minimum is kind of scary. Though, looking at some pics and the trailer, the time may have come to up the requirements a notch; either way, if it runs good (this time), it’s fine by me!

Minimum:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows Vista, 7, or 8
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-650, 3.2 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 Ghz
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660ti (2 GB Memory or higher) or AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2 GB Memory or higher)
  • DirectX: DX11
  • HDD: 32 GB available space

Recommended:

  • OS: 64 bit: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (3 GB Memory or higher) or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (3 GB Memory or higher)
  • DirectX: DX11
  • HDD: 32 GB available space

Batman: Arkham Knight System Requirements Revealed

The latest Batman title is almost here! To celebrate the impending release of this gaming juggernaut, Nvidia has just revealed the games specifications and they’re a little more demanding than most other games that launch these days, but that’s to be expected from the graphical powerhouse that is the Batman series.

The game will require the use of at least a GTX 660, not the most powerful card in the world, but still pretty fast for 1080p gaming. Those wanting the recommended will need a GTX 760, but going up to ultra, you’re going to have to invest in a much more powerful card; the GTX 980.

The next kick in the butt is the storage requirements, a staggering 55GB for recommended/ultra, something that may put a strain on many consumer SSDs after the  60GB+ that is being used by Grand Theft Auto fans!

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz | AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
  • Graphics Memory: 2 GB
  • DirectX®: 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
  • Hard Drive Space: 45 GB

Recommended System Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
  • Graphics Memory: 3 GB
  • DirectX®: 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
  • Hard Drive Space: 55 GB

ULTRA System Requirements

  • OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)

  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
  • Graphics Memory: 3 GB
  • DirectX®: 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
  • Hard Drive Space: 55 GB

Are you ready for the new Batman game and if so, what graphics settings do you think you’ll be applying, low, medium, high or ultra!

Far Cry 4 System Requirements Revealed – Have You Got a GTX 680?

Far Cry 4 is almost here and while we await the games final release date, there is just enough time to make sure your gaming rig is capable of running it, as the game’s specifications have just been revealed by Nvidia.

You’ll be wanting to run the game on a minimum of an Intel i5-750 / AMD Phenom II X4 955, with 4GB of RAM and around 30GB of hard drive space. The game only supports DirectX 11, so your graphics card will likely have to be compliant with that specification as a bare minimum, although that’s pretty much every card of the last five years.

Kicking things up to the recommended specifications will require some pretty sizable hardware. An Intel Core i5 or AMD FX-8350, 8GB of RAM and most importantly, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon R9 290X or better, with at least 2GB of VRAM.

Far Cry 4 PC Requirements:

Minimum System Requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2 GHz
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD5850 (1GB VRAM)
  • Direct X: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers

Recommended System Requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2400S @ 2.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or better
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon R9 290X or better (2GB VRAM)
  • Direct X: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers

So, can you run it? Let us know in the comments section below.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Minimum System Requirements Revealed

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is almost here and with the game hitting PC on the 4th of November (or the 3rd if you pre-order), many people are eager to find out if their PC can run it.

The minimum system requirements for the game are pretty straight forward and you won’t require a lot of high-end hardware to get this game running; no surprise for a game that is usually a lazy console port. One thing that does stand out is that the game requires 6GB of RAM, I personally have 8GB and I’m sure many of you do, but 4GB and even 2GB equipped systems are still the norm for many users. I suspect this is especially true those who are still rocking the GTS 450 or the HD 5870 graphics cards.

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
  • Processor: Intel CoreTM i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD PhenomTM II X4 810 @ 2.80 GHz or better
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI Radeon HD 5870 @ 1GB or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 55 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX-compatible

Recommended PC specifications are not available, which worries me as they’re likely hiding one of two facts. The first would be that the recommended specifications are quite low; which could highlight how far behind their games engine has become compared to other modern PC exclusive shooters. The second would be that they could be stupidly high specifications; which could highlight that the game is poorly optimized. This close to release, I would expect full specifications to have been made available, giving gamers the chance to equip their systems to best enjoy the game.

Thank you Gamespot for providing us with this information.

Ryse: Son of Rome Gets Official PC System Requirements

Crytek are still working hard on porting Ryse: Son of Rome to PC. The game is currently available on Xbox One and while poor sales of the game haven’t done the company any favours, the game is a testament to the graphical prowess of both Crytek and their CryEngine software. Just a shame is lacks in the gameplay department.

While it may not be the best game to play, it’s going to be a great one for flexing your PC hardware, something that is true of many Crytek games. The new PC requirements show that you’ll need a pretty decent PC to run the game, although keep in mind that as with any PC game you can push far beyond those recommended specifications and start doing crazy stuff like running this game at 4K resolutions, in 3D and a whole lot more.

Minimum:

CPU: Dual core with HyperThreading technology or quad-core CPU
Examples: Intel Core i3 2.8 GHz (3220T) or AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 GHz (945)
Memory: 4 GB RAM
GPU: DirectX 11 graphics card with 1 GB video RAM
Examples: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7770
OS: 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8)
HDD: 26GB

Recommended:

CPU: Quad Core or Six Core CPU
Examples: Intel Core i5 3.3 GHz (2500k) or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
GPU: DirectX 11 graphics card with 2 GB video RAM
Examples: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti or AMD Radeon 260x or 7850
OS: 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8)
HD: 26GB

So the big question is, what settings do you think you’ll be running on, low, medium, high or ultra?

Slightly Mad Studios Reveal Project C.A.R.S. PC System Requirements

Project CARS is already shaping up to be one of the greatest racing titles of a generation. It’s been created with the help of a large community of developers who have pushed the limits of the game time and time again, something that early backers will know from the steadily updated early access edition of the game.

The developers at Slightly Mad Studios have said that you’ll need at least a quad-core CPU to run the game, although at a minimum level a GTX 260 or HD 5770 should be enough to get you going – although I would expect that to cover 720p resolution, with effects and physics dialled all the way down.

MINIMUM SPEC:

  • CPU – 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400, 3.0 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 940
  • GRAPHICS – nVidia GTX 260, ATI Radeon HD 5770
  • MEMORY – 4Gb RAM, 1Gb VRAM

The recommended specifications are relatively high, but most mid-to-high systems built within the last two years should qualify for the settings. A GTX6xx or HD7xxx series card and 2GB of VRAM will do the job for those playing at 1080p with many of the settings dialled up to high.

RECOMMENDED SPEC:

  • CPU – 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 3700, 4.0 GHz AMD FX-8350
  • GRAPHICS – nVidia GT600 series, AMD Radeon HD7000 series
  • MEMORY – 8Gb RAM, 2Gb VRAM

The top specification for Project CARS is where ever you want it to be, the game comes with support for multiple displays, 3D monitors, Oculus Rift, 4K resolutions and more. If you want to strap a couple of GTX 780 Ti’s into your rig and rip a hole through time with processing power, the game will surely not disappoint.

Warface Title Launched Amids Crytek Financial ‘Crysis’

Though Crytek is facing financial problems in the UK headquarters, having paid employees only £700 last month and staff leaving due to this, the company was able to at least release its long-awaited free-to-play title, Warface, the latest free-to-play title to hit Steam.

Crytek is counting on Warface to become a success, having promising daily content updates in order to keep players interested in the title. One way or the other, it may even be the company’s way out of the financial situation it currently faces at the UK headquarters. Steam has stated that the game is currently available in North America, Europe, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand.

“Bringing Warface to Steam paves the way for a new audience to discover the game’s engrossing cooperative and competitive action; completely for free. As well as putting the power of CryEngine to work, Warface draws on Crytek’s FPS expertise to ensure players are immersed in the heat of battle–whether they’re jumping in for a quick game with friends or dedicating more time to the game’s extensive multiplayer modes” Hasit Zala, Warface Franchise Director stated.

In terms of features, Warface is said to offer four player co-op missions and a ‘versus’ mode, having players work together or against each other in order to win. The title is said to have fairly low system requirements in order to attract a variety of gamers with different system specs. The minimum requirements are said to be an Intel or AMD Dual-Core 2 GHz CPU, 2 GB of Ram and NVIDIA 8600 or Radeon 3650.

The recommended system requirements for users who like to experience the true graphics of Warface is stated to be for users having an Intel or AMD Dual-Core 2.6 GHz or higher CPU, same 2 GB of Ram and NVIDIA 9600GT, AMD Radeon 3870 or higher end GPUs. The game can be found and downloaded from Steam.

Official System Requirements For Thief Released

Thief is already one of the most anticipated titles of 2014, given that the games earlier incarnations helped push the world of gaming to new heights, the likes of which inspired generations of games such as Elder Scrolls, Fallout and well… just about any other first person RPG since.

The new game is set to be unleashed on the world at the end of February for consoles and of course PC. The dev team have released the official specifications this week so that all us lovely PC gamers can make sure we are ready to rock and roll from day one. Minimum requirements are rather forgiving overall, while the recommended specs do offer a little more demand for performance, they’re still not so high to hold back your average gaming rig front the last two years.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • OS: Windows Vista with platform update
  • CPU: High-performance dual core CPU or quad core CPU
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 4800 series / Nvidia GTS 250
  • DirectX: DirectX 10
  • HDD/SSD: 20 GB

Recommended Specs:

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8
  • CPU: AMD FX 8000 series or better / Intel i7 Quad Core CPU
  • RAM: 4+ GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD / R9 series or better / Nvidia GTX 660 series or better
  • DirectX: DirectX 11
  • HDD/SSD: 20 GB

Personally, I cannot wait to get my hands on this game, I’ve had it pre-ordered for what seems like forever!

Official Battlefield 4 PC System Requirements Revealed, Can You Run It?

Battlefield 4 is on the horizon, it’s so close now I can almost taste it! Now EA are teasing us even further by publishing the official game requirements, so now is the perfect time to make sure you’re up to the challenge of running the game, so lets take a look.

As you can see from the settings below the minimum is incredibly low, this is likely to do with the “console base level” that is set by 7 years + hardware used on the Xbox and PlayStation editions of the game, personally I’m still impressed that the 8800 range still has the guts to play games these days, but it was one of the greatest graphics cards ever created (for its time of course).

Of course “minimum” is such a vague and non helpful term, sure you can play on this hardware, but expect everything to look like crud, low res, nothing fancy and even still you could expect low frame rates and bottlenecks to be commonplace throughout, at least that’s my estimate. Recommended is a loose term also, while the specs given will run the game nicely I bet you’ll want a good bit more to push this up to higher resolution, with effects, anti aliasing, filtering and even more power needed for 3D and / or multiple displays. I would perceive the world “recommended” as more of a “happy medium”.

The GTX 660 and 7870 are great cards for the money, but they are mid market cards at best. A Phenom or FX-6xxx AMD CPU or Sandy Bridge Intel CPU wouldn’t set you back too much either and this is all pretty common hardware for your average PC gamer these days, so again, these all sound like modest estimates at best, especially given the lack of CPU clock speed requirements as this will massively effect the overall FPS you attain.

Battlefield 4 will be launching on October 29th this year and it would be a perfect game to upgrade your system for, are you ready for Battlefield 4? Let us know what setup you have in the comments section below.
