Crytek has revealed the minimum, recommended, and swanky deluxe PC requirements for Crysis 3. The good news is, you won't need to sell a kidney to get it to run at its most basic. The bad news is, nobody ever wants just basic, so prepare your damnable wallet.
Available as both a regular edition for $59.99 and a digital deluxe edition for $79.99, Crysis 3 is slated for a February 2013 release and can be bought through Origin, because EA is still pushing that thing.
You can check out the PC specs below, at any rate. I'm quite looking forward to giving this one a go, since I really enjoyed Crysis 2 in spite of my distaste for the original game. Hopefully this continues what the sequel started -- being good!
