Looks like Codemasters have quietly slipped some system requirements for the upcoming Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising into a post on the game's official boards.
Those expecting an easy run of things will be...wait, were any of you really expecting an easy run of things? New developers or not, this is a Flashpoint game, only now with fancy graphics. And as you can see in the recommended specs, that'll be asking quite a lot of you, thanks very much.
Minimum requirement Operating system: Windows XP SP2 or later GPU: DirectX 9.0c GPU: Shader 3.0 (GeForce 7900 GT / 256 MB VRAM or higher) Sound Card: DirectX Compatible 1 GB Memory: 1 GB 8 GB Hard disk: 8 GB CPU: Dual Core CPU 2 x 2.4 GHz DVD-ROM DVD drive: Dual Layer DVD-ROM
Recommended System Operating system: Windows XP SP2 or later GPU: Shader 3.0 (GeForce 8800 GT / 512 MB VRAM or higher), DirectX 9.0c Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Memory: 2 GB Hard disk: 8 GB CPU: Quad Core CPU DVD drive: Dual Layer DVD-ROM
Can't think of too many other games on the horizon recommending a quad core system.
[Codemasters, thanks everyone who sent this is in!]
