MechWarrior Online fronts accessible system specs

Piranha Games has released a very modest set of minimum system requirements for upcoming MMO sim MechWarrior Online.

The specs are useful information for this thinking of signing up for the game's founder's programs, which grant early beta access among other delights. Happily, if you're on the fence about signing up with your humble gaming box, Piranha is clearly keen to cater to the low-spec crowd.

"Right now a duo core system is our minimum spec machine but it is also our main focus of concern," Piranga president Russ Bullock wrote on the MMO's blog.

"It is playable on those specifications and I have tested it myself it is currently very much a minimum spec type of experience running on low-detail settings. It’s obvious that a Quad core system is the key as even the earliest Core 2 Quad systems run the game very well and it is our goal (since there are still so many out there), to optimize the Core 2 Duo systems to run much faster."

See the full specs below. MechWarrior Online is expected to launch this year.

  • CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz Athlon II X2 245e
