Crytek Reveal Crysis 2 System Requirements For PC



Crytek’s German Facebook page for Crysis 2 has a rundown of the game’s system requirements on PC. Blue’s News caught a glimpse of these via a tip and took the liberty of translating them.


We assume these to be minimum requirements for Crysis 2, given Crytek’s focus on future-proofing their games against PC hardware. Recommended requirements would, naturally, be higher.


  • Internet connection for installation and to get online
  • OS: XP / Vista / Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 2Ghz or better
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 9 GB
  • DVD ROM: 8x
  • GPU: nVidia 8800GT 512Mb RAM, ATI 3850HD 512Mb RAM or better
