Avalanche Studios has revealed the system specs required to play its upcoming, explosion-packed Just Cause 3. If you were concerned that your PC wouldn't handle the game's bangs and kabooms, fear not—the requirements seem quite reasonable to us.
The minimum specs comprise an Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Phenom II X6 1075T CPU, 6GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7870 graphics card. That's pretty tame as these things go. After all, Sandy Bridge CPUs date back to January 2011, and the listed graphics cards aren't much younger.
Things get a little more interesting in the recommended specifications, but they still easily fall in the realm of attainable. To enjoy all of Just Cause 3's explosions at full blast, Avalanche says you'll need a Core i7-3770 or FX-8350 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 780 or R9 290 graphics card. Any higher-end system from the past couple years should easily fit that bill. Just Cause 3 arrives December 1.
