Arma 3 system requirements are commanding


Yesterday, developer Bohemia Interactive announced it will continue the Arma series (A.K.A. Armed Assault) with Arma 3, coming exclusively to the PC in 2012.

With the announcement out of the way--and a few screens thrown out to whet appetite for the title--Bohemia has revealed the game's system requirements [via PC Gamer]. At first glance the requirements look to command a military-grade computer upgrade; however, we're confident that the hardest of the hardcore will likely be able to answer the call to jump into the next installment of the highly advanced series.

  • OS: Windows 7 / Vista

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 or AMD Athlon Phenom X4 or faster

  • GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 or ATI Radeon HD 5770, shader Model 3 and 896 MB VRAM, or faster

  • RAM: 2 GB

  • HDD: 15 GB free space

  • DVD: Dual Layer compatible

  • DirectX: 10

We hope to learn more (including advanced PC feature support) from the developer at E3 2011, which kicks off early next month.
