If you are a PC game that likes shooters and games with awesome storylines and game play, you are familiar with the original Crysis. The game was one of my all time favorites and I am really looking forward to the next installation, Crysis 2. Crytek has offered up the minimum system specs for the game so you can answer the "will it run" question early.




Crytek says that the game will require a web connection for activation. It will run on XP, Vista, or Windows 7 OS' and you need at least an Intel Core 2 Duo at 2GHz or an Athlon 64 x2 at 2GHz. Your rig will need at least 2GB of RAM and at least 9GB of free space on your drive. That is a lot of drive space needed.


Your DVD drive must be at least 8x, and you need an audio device that is DirectX 9.0c compatible. The real spec we want to know is the video card required. You will need an NVIDIA 8800GT 512MB or better solution or an ATI 3850HD with 512MB or better. The game will hit the US on March 22 and Europe on March 25.
