Duke Nukem Forever PC System Requirements Announced

If you’ve been waiting for the last 10 years for Duke Nukem Forever, you’ve got to be getting excited. We know for sure the game is coming, and now we know exactly what sort of system you’ll need to run the game on PC.

Over on Gearboxity, the developer who picked up Duke says this is what you need to enjoy the Duke:

Minimum Specifications
OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.0 Ghz
Memory: 1 Gb
Hard Drive: 10 Gb free
Video Memory: 256 MB
Video Card: nVidia GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon HD 2600

These requirements aren’t overly onerous at all. In fact, they’re fairly pedestrian. That’s a good thing for Duke Nukem fans, as even those of you with aging systems should still be able to get your fix.

You don’t like the game because it’s graphics aren’t pretty or because the game isn’t as computer heavy as newer age . Prefer Force Unleashed? 30 gigabytes of crap. Might be more up your alley because I bet your computer is about as well built as your grammar, .

I will be getting this, I missed out on the previous Duke Nukems, from what I have seen of the game play it is enough to hold my attention.
I agree that graphics are not nearly everything, game play is much more important, that being said I tried to play elder scrolls one and just could not get into it due to the texture quality so there are limits.

I remember when HL2 and DOOM3 came out, George Broussard saying this game would be comparable, graphically, with those two. I can definately see that being the case, which was always amazing that they took the old UT tech and made it that good.

I’ve been waiting for this one ever since I played Duke3d to death. The wait is almost over!
