EverQuest Next Landmark. Your desktop / notebook / goblin-powered gaming contraption. Can the latter run the former? The answer to that question is most likely "Yes", unless you're still plugging away at C&C: Red Alert on your dusty old 486DX.
Posted a couple of days ago, the system requirements for the alpha version of EQN Landmark are surprisingly OK. Even so, the post mentions the developers will be "performing optimizations throughout our testing period", which should allow it to drop the requirements in the future.
Minimum System Requirements:
OS – Windows 7 64 bit Processor – Intel i5 Dual Core or higher / AMD Phenom X3 or higher Memory – 4GB RAM Hard Drive – 20GB Free Video Memory – 1,024 MB RAM Video Card – nVidia GeForce GTX 275 series or higher / AMD HD 4890 or higher Sound Card – DirectX compatible Internet – Broadband (10Mbit/sec or higher)
Recommended System Requirements:
OS – Windows 7 64 bit Processor – Intel i5 Quad Core or higher / AMD Phenom II X6 or higher Memory – 8GB RAM Hard Drive – 20GB Free Video Memory – 1,024 MB RAM Video Card – nVidia GeForce GTX 560 series or higher / AMD HD 6870 or higher Sound Card – DirectX compatible Internet – Broadband (10Mbit/sec or higher)
I don't really keep up-to-date on PC requirements these days, but the need for the 64-bit version of Windows 7 is interesting, as is the absence of Windows 8 in the recommend requirements (though I imagine it'd run fine on the operating system).
It's not like limiting things to 64-bit is really going to inconvenience anyone, but it does remind me of a time when people were burning their houses down whenever a game didn't support Windows XP.
