The official spec sheet for Crysis Warhead, which launches next month, has been released. See if your PC can match it.
Crytek has made a song and dance about how the expansion will cater for more players' systems: "We designed Warhead to be more accessible. It is a game with a story that can stand on its own, it has been optimized to run better on a wider range of PCs, and we are introducing Crysis Wars, a tailor-made experience for multiplayer gamers within the Crysis universe."
Here's what you need to be packing inside your tower of power:
- CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (3.2 GHz for Vista), Intel Core 2.0 GHz
(2.2 GHz for Vista), AMD Athlon 2800+ (3200+ for Vista) or better
- RAM: 1GB (1.5GB on Windows Vista)
- Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
(Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or better
- VRAM: 256MB of Graphics Memory
- Storage: 15GB
- Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible
- ODD: DVD-ROM
- OS: Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Microsoft Vista
- DirectX: DX9.0c or DX10
And just in case you were wondering, Crysis Warhead is a standalone release and does not require the original Crysis to play. Everyone's a winner, except console kids.
