Minimum System Specs Announced for Warhammer Online

If you’re looking forward to Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning the moment you’ve been anticipating or dreading, depending on your PC build, has come. EA Mythic has released the minimum system requirements for WAR. Here are the specs:

PC SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

For Windows XP

· 2.5 GHz P4 (single core) processor or equivalent
· 1 Gigabyte RAM
· A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
· At least 15 GB of hard drive space

For Windows VISTA

· 2.5 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
· 2 Gigabyte RAM
· A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
· At least 15 GB of hard drive space

There’s a special note for gamers who hope to run WAR on a laptop. Integrated chip sets will run alright on low settings, but most chip sets will run slow if they work at all. Make sure to check your hardware out before you invest in the game.

Supported video cards are listed after the break

Supported Video Cards

ATI Radeon(TM) series

· 9500, 9600, 9800
· X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
· X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
· 2400, 2600, 2900,
· 3650, 3850, 3870
· 4850, 4870

NVIDIA GeForce series

· FX 5900, FX 5950
· 6600, 6800,
· 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
· 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
· 9400, 9500, 9600, 9800
· GTX 260, GTX 280

Intel(R) Extreme Graphics

· GMA X4500

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slowly. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly. Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants will have low settings selected, but should run satisfactorily.

Please note that attempting to play the game using video hardware that isn’t listed above may result in reduced performance, graphical issues or cause the game to not run at all.

The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista.

I’m feeling very bleh towards MMOs, I went into AoC after WoW but right now MMOs no longer interest me in the slightest bit. I’m sure it’ll all change when winter swings around again.

@Kevin,

It wasn’t that bad. I’ve played much worse MMOs then this one.

EA: Weve just killed warhammer online.
Blizzard: Still siting behind pc desks giving descent updates and another expansion
AoC: laughing to the bank due to the sheer stupidty of the game.
