Crysis 2 Tech Spec Revealed
The hotly anticipated sequel Crysis 2 comes out on March 22nd for consoles and PC. The first Crysis game was a PC exclusive known for unusually high system demands which would melt lesser game rigs, and PC gamers have been concerned that the sequel would have another set of farcically powerful technical demands.
They were leaked on a the game's German Facebook page today, and gamers are breathing a sign of relief (While canceling orders for those twelve-packs of GeForce GTX cards). Below are the minimal requirements to play Crysis 2 on your PC. They aren't as demanding and one might have feared. Basically, if you could play the original Crysis, you'll at least be able to play the new game on the lower graphical settings. Of course, these are just the minimum specs; to play on the highest graphical settings, you'll probably need a bucket of Radeon Eyefinity cards and a HAL 9000.
