With compulsory DX11 graphics, Cryteks next game is set to push modern PCs to the limit.

One of the most noticeable changes that has occurred with PC games over recent years is the inherent need to upgrade your hardware to play the latest and greatest titles. Thanks in part to the ancient hardware powering the Xbox 360 and Playstation3 consoles, system requirements seldom require hardware from the last few years.

Crytek's 2007 PC only release, Crysis, still stands as one of the few titles capable of taxing a modern PC. Its 2011 sequel, however, was heavily console focused, and it wasn't until months later that a DX11 patch and high resolution texture pack added features design to leverage high end PC hardware.

The third game in the series is set to land in February next year, and when Atomic recently talked with Crytek's co-founder Cevat Yerli he said "I think it's going to look like the best game ever on the PC platform. Our goal is to melt down PCs again and make sure that the question returns, `Can it run Crysis?'

EA has now released the minimum and recommended specs for Crysis 3, and they definitely play into the promise of a title that will tax old hardware, with DX 11 hardware required this time around. This makes the graphics requirements in particular, much higher than we have become accustomed to seeing.

The specs are as follows:

Minimum System Operating Requirements for PC

Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM
Dual core CPU

Recommended System Operating Requirements for PC

Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):

Was there an exact release date on there? I didn't see it...

Someone said it was February.

I noticed my rig wouldn't run it at max when I was in the alpha. I had to turn down some of the DX effects to get a decent framerate, but it still looked absolutely gorgeous.

The article only says February. No specific date.
