Crysis 2

The minimum system requirements to run Crytek’s upcoming FPS game, Crysis 2, have been revealed and no surprise – they match the recommended system requirements for the first Crysis. You might think this isn’t a big deal, but take into account that this is the minimum requirement to run the game. Minimum probably means all the special effects turned off, low-res textures being used and so on. Would you really bother playing a game that you can’t fully experience? Hit the break to check out the system requirements of the game:

Crysis 2 minimum system requirements:

  • Internet connection to play the game to install and get online
  • OS: XP / Vista / Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 2 GHz or higher
  • GPU : Nvidia 8800 GT 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 3850 512 MB of RAM or better
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 9 GB
  • DVD ROM: 8x
  • Audio: DirectX 9.0c compatible
  • Keyboard, Mouse or Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

And for comparison, here are the minimum requirements for the original Crysis:

  • 2.8 GHz or XP, CPU 3.2 GHz for Vista (in this case referred to a single-core processor)
  • 1 RAM GB XP, 1.5 GB for Windows Vista
  • A graphics card with 256 MB VRAM MB and Shader Model 3 support


  • Windows XP or Windows Vista
  • Athlon X2 4400 + or Core 2 Duo (2.2 GHz)
  • 2 RAM GB
  • 8800GTS 640MB, GF8800GT or more

I’d hate to think what the recommended requirements for Crysis 2 are going to be!
