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.
