Crysis Warhead specs revealed

Does your PC make the grade?

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
  • 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.
