PC gamers will be able to get their clawed hands on Capcom's Lost Planet 2 come October 15th. This game has DirectX 9 and 11 support inside, and also plays nice with NVIDIA's 3D Vision and 3D Vision Surround tech. Capcom says that with DirectX 11, "smoke will have lifelike volume and depth, water surfaces react realistically to player interaction and bullets, and level bosses are rendered with more detail than ever before."

If you've got the rig and want to check out how the game will run on it, help out with Capcom's benchmark test. There's a preview of the game you can download that has two tests in it. The first test is to give an indication of typical game play performance running the game. The other test is to push PC rigs to their limit to evaluate maximum performance. They say it is very demanding, so watch out. If you're down for the test, visit this page and download the 955mb file.

Right now the recommended requirements for the PC version of Lost Planet 2 look like this:

  • Windows Vista or Windows 7
  • Intel Core2 Quad/ AMD Phenom x4
  • 3GB or over RAM
  • 13 GB free space
  • 1280x720 resolution or higher
  • Nvidia GeForce 9800, ATI Radeon TM HD4800 (512mb RAM or higher)
  • Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

We've got some PC version screenshots in our gallery below.
