Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.
NOTICE: This game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict with some disc and virtual drives.
If this is the final spec of the PC version then…well wow. These spec levels are beefier than those for Crysis, I am not looking forward to trying to play this…well I won’t be able to what with only having a lowly P4!
I am also wary of the last part concerning preventing copying, I just hope they don’t put in some software that kills disc drives!
