Far Cry 2‘s showing at this year’s E3 throroughly impressed me, but sadly, I knew that my PC would not be able to run the game at its full graphical capacity.
With Ubisoft’s announcement of the PC specs for Far Cry 2 today, it looks like my assumption was correct. Here are the minimum requirements, followed by the max:
CPU: Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz, Pentium D 2.66 Ghz, AMD Athlon 64 3500+ or better
Video card: NVIDIA 6800 or ATI X1650 or better, Shader Model 3 required, 256 Mb of graphic memory
Memory: 1 GB
Media reader: DVD-ROM
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Family, AMD 64 X2 5200+, AMD Phenom or better
Video card: NVIDIA 8600 GTS or better, ATI X1900 or better, 512 Mb of memory
Memory: 2 GB
Sound: 5.1 sound card recommended
So, will anyone else be sticking with the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version of Far Cry 2 when it finally comes out?
