Posted on May 22, 2008, Jonathan Unofficial System Requirements for Starcraft II Revealed?
Blizzard usually produces games that can run on the majority of machines out there, but when you see footage from the upcoming Starcraft II, you have to wonder just what sort of machine you’ll need to run it. Well it seems the Spanish magazine, Micromania, recently took a trip to Blizzard’s offices and managed to unearth the system requirements for the game. Bear in mind though, that these are not the official specs for the game, as Blizzard has not verified any of them:
GFX: GeForce 7/8 Series or Radeon 1000/2000 with 256 MB RAM
CPU: Pentium 4
RAM: 1 GB
Internet: ADSL 1 Mbit
GFX: GeForce 8000 or Radeon 2000 series with 512 MB RAM
CPU: Core 2 Duo or Athlon X2.
RAM: 2 GB
Internet: ADSL 3 Mbit
GFX: Geforce 9000er or Radeon 3000er Series
CPU: Core 2 Duo 3 GHz or Athlon X2
RAM: 2GB with DualChannel mode
Those are some fairly steep requirements for a Blizzard title, if these do turn out to be the final specs. Of course, by the time the game actually reaches store shelves, maybe they’ll be much closer to the norm.
