  • Hmmm, those are pretty high CPU requirements - guess they're pushing some CPU there - an 1800x as recommended? woah
  • Gosh if pc games requirements go like this. Guess my poor i7-2600 along with my nvidia 1050 ti will soon be out of comission for games till when ever I buy a new pc to play new games. :S
  • 1050 ti will be alright I think for this game whatever the requirements are, I have one of them too.
  • Looks like the devs are pushing the graphical envelope further. Good in that games will look better, bad in that it'll cost us more.
  • Yikes @ that minimum GPU requirement. RIP my GTX 680.
  • Weren't they talking about hitting 400fps in this game though?
  • Will be looking forward to this game 😃
  • Meanwhile, I thought the recommend specs were low 😂
  • Glad my 4770k overclocked is abit faster (on paper) than the recommended 6700k. This game looks good!
