The original Crysis needed quite a powerful PC to run without all the eye candy disabled. Will the sequel be any different? Electronic Arts Germany has posted system requirements for the game on the official Crysis Facebook page, giving folks a chance to upgrade before the March 22 release date.
The Facebook posting, which is in German, says Crysis 2 will require at least:
That pretty much describes a gaming system from three years ago, so PC gamers hopefully won't need to max out their credit cards on a Core i7 and GeForce GTX 580 to enjoy Crysis 2.
Interestingly, the specs above lie between the "minimum" and "recommended" requirements for the original Crysis. Considering Crysis 2 features a new version of CryEngine tuned to run on five-year-old consoles, though, I'd expect the upcoming game to be more scalable than its predecessor.
