Update:

We have received word from Blizzard directly that these system specs are by no means the official specs for the game. Micromania did not receive these specs from Blizzard in any way, nor did Blizzard even answer a question in regard to the specs. Therefore, these figures should be taken as, at best, incredible speculation!

The originally published article will continue below for discussion purposes.


These are by no means official just yet, but after a visit to Blizzard's offices the Spanish gaming magazine Micromania has had a look under the hood of Starcraft 2 and got some outlines of what the system requirements will be.

While Blizzard is apparently yet to comment on the suggested requirements, they seem reasonable to us and are in line with current expectations for the upcoming strategy juggernaut. Check out the minimum and recommended specs below.

Minumum Requirements
GFX: GeForce 7/8 Series or Radeon 1000/2000 with 256 MB RAM
CPU: Pentium 4
RAM: 1 GB
Internet: ADSL 1 Mbit

Recommended Requirements
GFX: GeForce 8000 or Radeon 2000 series with 512 MB RAM
CPU: Core 2 Duo or Athlon X2.
RAM: 2 GB
Internet: ADSL 3 Mbit

Starcraft 2 hasn't gone gold quite yet, so you should be prepared for these figures to change somewhat as the developer finalises the requirements for the game, but as it is at the moment this is the best anyone has to go on.

Is your system equipped to run Starcraft 2 assuming these details are correct, or are you left by the wayside? Let us know in the forums.
