Crysis 3 Specifications Revealed

Playstation 3 Xbox 360 PC News FPS EA

The latest in the Crysis franchise of PC killing games, Crysis 3, has recently had its website updated with the full list of PC requirements to run the game. As anyone with a gaming PC will tell you, the Crysis games have generally set the benchmark for computing power required to even run the games.

In an odd move, the guys over at Crytek and EA have listed three differing tiers of specifications. These are the minimum specs to even look at the game, the recommended specs for playing the game comfortably and the hi performance specs for absolute awesomesauce levels of gameplay and graphics.

I have reproduced these specs below –
