Batman: Arkham City PC specs revealed

by Jeff Mattas, Oct 21, 2011 1:00pm PDT

The minimum and recommended PC requirements for Batman: Arkham City have been revealed so that now everyone can assess how well their rigs will handle the Dark Knight's latest adventure. Released last Tuesday, October 18 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Arkham City is due to arrive for PC on November 15 in North America, and November 18 in Europe.

In addition to the requirements listed below (which come directly from the fine folks at nVidia's GeForce.com), you may want to check out our report on the PhysX and DirectX 11 graphical enhancements, which add some extra visual bells and whistles. It's worth noting, because if the graphics settings perform like they did in the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylym, those with AMD video cards will still find themselves able to turn on PhysX (which is native to NVidia cards), albeit at a significant cost to frame-rate.

Without further ado, here's what you'll need to explore Arkham City on PC:
