Crysis 2 requirements detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

Looks reasonable enough
German part of EA posted the minimum requirements for PC version of the Crysis 2 on the Facebook page and it looks like the upcoming Crytek Crysis 2 game isn't going to be heavy on hardware. Of course, bear in mind that these specs are going to run the game, but doesn't mean that you'll get all the eyecandy seen on trailers.

The upcoming Crysis 2 will apparently work on XP, Vista and Windows 7 OS and minimum specs include a Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, AMD's Athlon 64 x2 2GHz or better, 2GB of memory, Nvidia 8800GT 512MB, ATI HD 3850 512MB or better and 9GB of HDD space. It is also noted that you'll need an active internet connection, presumably for activation.

It is pretty obvious that the PC version of the game will not be a simple port. The game should launch on March 22nd in the US of A and on March 25th in Europe.

So are they actually making it for the PC and then dumbing down the graphics for the consoles? Or is it just your usual multiplatform game that has the same graphics as consoles?

Sadly this seems to be proof that this is just going to be another shit console port and nothing more.

excuse me sir, but what do you want for MINIMUM requirements? Geforce 580 gtx and Quadcore@ GhZ ?
If you think about it the minimum requirements to play the game at its lowest are actually quite high!

already discussed this yesterday over at cvg, and nowhere on that facebook page does it state that these are the official minimum specs. i'd be surprised if they were to be honest, as even something like a 9500gt should be able to handle low-med settings at a low-med res in any modern pc game (especially one that runs on gpu's in consoles that are 5 years old). they're probably more like the specs required for a half-decent experience, as i can't imagine them being recommended either.

I dont think they are really official too or the game must look like first Crysis on high with this specs, Crytek talked a lot about optimisation...

chillout man :)
it's coming for Xbox and ps3, it means it will be playable on average PC,they are not going to do the same mistake as with crysis 1, great game but unplayable on many PCs=very low sales.
Only METRO 2033 lags even with 580 gtx :)
