Mass Effect 2 PC System Requirements Ahoy!

BioWare have released the system specs and DRM information for the upcoming Mass Effect 2, putting some potential customers out of their misery and sending others straight to their local GameStop.

Here they are, straight from BioWare's Chris Priestly. So if there's a problem, take it up with him, not me.

OS = Windows XP SP3 / Windows Vista SP1 / Windows 7 Processor = 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent AMD CPU Memory = 1 GB RAM for Windows XP / 2 GB RAM for Windows Vista and Windows 7 Hard Drive = 15 GB DVD ROM = 1x Speed Sound Card = DirectX 9.0c compatible Direct X = DirectX 9.0c August 2008 (included) Input = Keyboard / Mouse Video Card = 256 MB (with Pixel Shader 3.0 support). Supported Chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 or greater; ATI Radeon X1600 Pro or greater. Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 7300, 8100, 8200, 8300, 8400, and 9300; ATI Radeon HD3200, and HD4350 are below minimum system requirements. Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required. Intel and S3 video cards are not officially supported in Mass Effect 2.

As for the game's digital rights management, it'll use the same as Dragon Age, which means a simple disc check, nothing more, nothing less.

    Looks like Ultra settings will require quite a bit then.

    Looks about right, hopefully its scales as well as Dragon Age did. Maybe with some of that long play memory leakage nonsense fixed.

    I dont see why people would be suprised, its only UE3. That engine will run on any card with 8800 infront of it or higher at max settings.

      yeah that reminds me wasnt there problems with doing just that in ME1(8800)

    Yeah well I guess the upside to console gaming being so popular is that we don't have to upgrade our PCs all that often anymore, stuff sorta stays the same.
