The Minimum System Requirements have been announce, though Anet also say they may change.
Good to see that older machines are supported. 25GB of hard disk space! Though I doubt that will be requried for the release, they are probably just covering themselves for the future in some way. Not that 25GB is a problem for HDD's today It will certainly be an issue for some SA gamers and their caps
I think that all we South African's need to worry about is how will the game play over our broadband connections. The persistent world is more of a challenge than GW1, so lag I am sure will be a much bigger issue. Wait and see I guess.
