Dawn of War 2 specs released

Dawn of War 2 specs released

Relic's Dawn of War 2 should easily run on most peoples systems thanks to modest system requirements.

If you're excited for the release of THQ's Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 2 later this year then you may want to take a look at this - it's the minimum and recommended requirements for the PC exclusive Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 2.

The game itself will be out later this year and will let players get another dose of frenetic RTS action with an expanded faction list and improved graphics - but you'd know all that already if you'd read our Games to Watch in 2009 article.

Check out the specs below.

Minimum Requirements
* Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista SP1
* P4 3.2 GHz (single core) or any Dual Core processor
* 1 GB RAM (XP), 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)
* A 128MB Video Card (Shader Model 3) - Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT / ATI X1600, or equivalent
* 5.5 GB of Hard Drive space

Recommended
* Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista SP1
* AMD Athlon 64×2 4400+ or any Intel Core 2 Duo
* 2 GB RAM (XP and Vista)
* A 256MB Video Card (Shader Model 3) - Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT / ATI X1900, or equivalent
* 5.5 GB of Hard Drive space

In other words then, the Essence 2.0 engine that powers Relic's latest strategy epic isn't exactly a polygon-pushing powerhouse. Everyone and their grandma should be able to hit those recommended requirements in this day and age, if you ask us. Pass your own thoughts along in the forums.

Either that or, like several other engines, scales very well. Not every game needs to be a Crysis-level system killer. ;)

I'm really looking forward to this, too. Hope they put proper widescreen support in this time, though.

I have a feeling that the SM3 req is going to catch a few people out.

when I say "people" i mean "people who by a £300 machine without knowing whats inside it"

Thats practically my almost 3 year old system (I added some more memory and more hdd space since, and have been meaning to upgrade the graphics card for 18 months or so but can never quite decide on one)

Good to see a game that more people can run on the recommended specs. Game play is better in my opinion than super advanced graphics. I do own the first Dawn of War, and enjoyed what time I did play.
