Game-Debate have published system requirements for the genetically mutated, shape-shifter, action game by Developer Radical and Publishing House Activision.
This was posted on Activisions Prototype Forums a while ago. http://forums.activision.co... But meh still news.
Link won't work for me but should be okay crysis funs on full.
For a sandbox game those specs seem pretty low, hopefully it runs well not like some other recent PC versions of sandbox games that run horrendously even on high end PCs >.>
Far Cry 2, that ran amazingly well on the PC.
I know for the graphics it had it run smoothly, but then look at Mercenaries 2 which looks like a PS2 and is a technical nightmare on the PC, same goes for the PC versions of Saints Row 2 and GTA4 which are brutally unoptimized and suffer even with specs well above the recommended ones and that is not even counting the massive amount of bugs and glitches :/
i thought we lived in a world where we beleive pc gamoing is the best and yet even the most simplest of games are broken
You've got to remember though, Saints Row 2 and GTA4 don't exactly run very well on consoles either. As far as Mercs 2 goes, the game was bad, but it didn't seem to have any performance issues on my PC at all, still buggy and bad though. I remember showing GTA4 running on my PC, and even with it running at 30 FPS he said it looked significantly better than the console version and ran a lot better too.
in regards to gta IV it does perform significantly better imo with the new patches, but yes, saints row 2 and mercs 2 are still technical nightmares on the pc, it can get pretty bad on the console version as well
One question: does it have DRM?
It's being published by Activision so it's likely to have nothing more than a basic disc check.
wow its been a long time since ive played PC games, and holy crap have the requirements ever gone up
- 1 XBOX 360 :)
cool, i didnt know it was gonna come out on PC that way i can get it the illegal way:d
intel core 2 duo 1.86 ghz and higher amd athlon x2 4000+ or higher other than that the other stuff is the same, too bad they didn't tell us recommended requirements =( maybe the "box" retail version of the game will have a different one making the confusion worse lol XD but yes i am worried a bit about how well this game will run on pc. i saw a comment about gtaIV and saints row 2 and those run worse on consoles than on pc. i've seen the ps3 and 360 both get down to barely playable frame rates. pc may get a bit laggy, but at least its still playable. anyway as long as the frames average around 30 i'll be satisfied. that is as long as minimum frames don't go below like 15
Cool, my PC will smash those specs, now is the coding going to actually be good and run well on the PC port?
