Thread: Guild Wars 2 System Requirements released

  1. #1

    Default Guild Wars 2 System Requirements released

    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.

    Windows XP Service Pack 2 or better
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or better
    NVIDIA GeForce 7800, ATI Radeon X1800, Intel HD 300 or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better)
    25GB available HDD space
    Broadband Internet Connection
    Keyboard & Mouse
    i7 980X 3.33GHz @ 4GHz, Rampage III Gene, Noctua NH-D14, Corsair 12GB DDR3-1600, Asus GTX670 4GB, Corsair 80GB & 240GB SSD, Dual 27" IPS7, W7 64bit.

    I read somewhere (wrt the 25GB) that with the Steam download or something, you need about 8GB of download space and 25GB afterwards.

    I hope so! 8 gigs is still a monster to a iFail lUser like me, but its a far better option than 25gigs!

    Will need to get to an uncapped line somewhere to download the original or just get the discs from someone

    Must say it will still run on my Laptop so I am happy.

    Yeah you will likely need to do that. I hope that WebAfrica will mirror the images again like they did last time (or well the data file).
