Crysis 2 Minimum PC Specs Released

One of the first questions that used to be asked about gaming PCs was, “Can it run Crysis?” Now, Crysis 2 is coming, and the minimum PC specs just rolled out for public viewing.

These are minimum requirements, so just because you have a PC that meets these specs, don’t expect to be running the game at Ultra settings. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2 2GHz or better
  • Nvidia 8800 GT or higher
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Windows XP/Vista/7
  • 9 GB free hard disk space
  • Internet connection

We already know that the PC version will ship with DirectX 11 support, so obviously if you want to take advantage of those features, your 8800GT isn’t going to cut it.

There’s no word on what the recommended specs will be yet, but judging from these minimums, you won’t need a machine that only exists in the future, like you did with the first Crysis. Still, if you’ve been putting off that new gaming PC, this might be just the excuse you’ve been looking for.

Excited for the game? Check out our full Crysis 2 Walkthrough!

I shall buy this game and pwn it with my GTX 580 Tri SLI/i7 980X/12GB DDR3 1866/4x120GB SSD supercombo. Because I can.

My computer can probably run it, but I’m not getting it because the first game wasn’t very good.
