    Well it’s a openworld game that looks amazing in trailers so specs need to be high.

    Wow! Those highs are a little bit too high aren’t they!? What, an i5-2500 is not powerful enough? Also 8 GBs of RAM1? Those I have but still, 8 GBs..

    Never ever go by specs on game boxes as they are normally too low or are normally just bullshit. Remember they get paid money from these companies and special advice/tech/software kits to make the games run better on certain cpu’s or gpu’s. Such as AMD’s gaming evolved and Nvidia’s TWIMTBP incentives in order to sell more hardware.

    I would love to see this game use more than 8GB system RAM yet only require at 1GB GPU?? BF3 uses around 1.5GB VRAM and only 3GB system, or so I’ve monitored through CPU-z and afterburner.
