Arma 3 system requirements revealed

Arma 3 is coming! In between all ofthe new Arma 3 info and shiny, shiny screenshots, Bohemia also released the system requirements for the game. Be warned, they’re pretty high. It looks like some of us are going to have to upgrade if we’re going to run the military sim when it’s released in summer 2012.

The story is too old to be commented.

Core i5 or Phenom X4....Whoa! I'm speechless. This game is gonna be brutal.

time to seriously upgrade those 8800GTX as that's not gonna cut it NO MORE!

I'm almost wanna say screw BF3 (I said almost) Give me Arma 3 NOW! Next Sunday while I'm playing Arma II with my friends I'll be dreaming about Arma 3 for sure.

PC industry really has moved ahead this year with games like:

Shogun 2
Witcher 2
Arma 3

maaaaaaaaaaaaan F this

BlackKnight3528d ago


Well it will be minimum in Summer 2012. That is when Arma 3 is scheduled to come out. Also, there is quite a range of i5 cpus, I assume they mean the slowest of the i5.

gotta love arma 2. pc gaming is as healthy as it has ever been. we really have had a good year.

ATiElite3527d ago

2011 isn't even half way over and I'm enjoying all the great PC titles and we still have Red Orchestra 2, BF3, Star Wars, Tera and several other titles waiting to come out but.....

2012 is shaping up to be a monster

Arma 3 Diablo 3 Guild Wars 2 STALKER 2 and maybe the Mack Daddy of them all Half Life 2 Ep 3

Those are "ESTIMATED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS" as stated by the fact sheet and not set in stone. They still can change (and probably will) till release (which is more than a year away)

it better look freaking better than bf3....the last arma looked mediocre at best, honestly just a bit above call of duty 6 on pc , yes, i owned it, yes my pc had it completely maxed in 1920x1080p(it ran at only 50 fps which pissed me off....i like 60..)

The thing with Arma is there are no invisible walls, no areas where you are not allowed to go, it is open would but still keeps the detail unbelievably high.

The downside to Arma is character voice over and lip synching/lip animation, just terrible! Lol but the best simulator around.

nothing is on the scale of arma 2 though, the scale made it demanding.

JsonHenry3528d ago

Yep, I gotta agree with this comment. They just didn't look "natural" enough to match the realistic graphics.

Revvin3528d ago

Its about time developers took PC gaming forward with better support for multi core processors. I'll be buying this game for sure but as FasterThanFTL says I hope they work on the animation as it is really poor, also the voice acting. I think about the very first mission and shudder where you sit in the helicopter and have that ridiculous conversation with a squad member whose voice is really disjointed with poor character acting and zero lip syncing. I know its a military sim but just do that and give me a briefing page then straight into the mission and ditch the cutscenes if you're not going to bother putting any work into them.

you can tell the recession is over.
