Mirror's Edge PC requirements released

Mirror's Edge PC requirements released

Electronic Arts has revealed the minimum system requirements, saying that all PhysX content is optional.

Those of you who've been eagerly awaiting the PC release of Mirror's Edge will be glad to see the official announcement of the minimum system requirements today, listed below.

The reveal comes with news from Electronic Arts that the PhysX content being built into the game especially for the PC version is entirely optional, so you don't need to worry about having the latest hardware to run it. EA also confirmed that it would not be shipping a level editor with the PC release.

Electronic Arts was one of a number of companies, along with 2K Games, which yesterday announced that it would be licensing Nvidia's PhysX systems for use in other future titles.

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2/Vista
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz or 100% compatible equivalent
Memory: 1GB RAM
Video Card: 256MB memory with Shader Model 3.0*
HDD Space: 8GB
DVD Drive: 1x DVD Drive
Soundcard: Soundcard with DirectX 9.0c compatibility
DirectX: DirectX 9.0c
Network: An online connection is required for access to Leaderboards

The minimum system specs outlined above is a system which would not run the game with PhysX enabled.

Only for leaderboards access?
Or for DRM too?

So they delayed the game because of PhysX, and after all that it's only optional?

Didn't the community conclude that it (the delay) was BS?

It's hardly going to be a requirement since not all hardware supports it.

Ben agrees. Although it could be just that Joe uploaded the story that someone else wrote, in which he will still have his name at the top.

Those minimum requirements are pretty low. Good for me since my 8800gt is being bogged down by my A64 3200 :(

Joe is simply trying to write news stories and content which doesn't require a personal identity in the more traditional journalistic style, rather than enforcing New Games Journalism style on readers constantly. He's just testing it out to see if he wants to stick with it.

Joe is eager for opinions too.

in all seriousness, I will be buying this as soon as it hits shelves, as it is an amazing game and I vote for the innovation of the devs with my wallet. ;)

Wow, looks like my six year old Dell can run it, barely.

Unlike other recent ports (gta IV and assassin's creed) those are quite reasonable.
Loot3r 10th December 2008, 11:58 Quote
assassin's creed runs great on my pc, and i mean really well! iv only got a 8800gts so no big deal if u ask me! GTA4, been there hijacked that, just looks better when doing it and in a different mob! As for mirror's edge, looks like money well spent, but we will see!

Then surely it shouldn't say in big letters at the top of the page "JOE MARTIN"? It kind of undermines it somewhat...
