    The Crysis 3 Website now offers system specifications for Crysis 3, the next installment in Crytek's shooter series (thanks VG247). They outline the typical minimum and recommended systems for playing the game, as well as a "hi-performance" spec for the ultimate experience: Continue here to read the full story.

    450/5770 as minimum

    Casual gamers will need a bump up in specs

    It's interesting that they list the FX4150 as a high performance CPU.

    That's what I'm waiting for :)

    And I figure people would be more excited about the steep requirements.

    Probably will come to Steam, but not till there is another maximum edition or if Crytek doesn't do an exclusive deal with how you have to purchase their DLC. Crysis 2 was pulled from Steam because you had to buy the DLC through gamespy or something with a deal Crytek made. So if they don't do that and put the DLC on Steam then it could be on Steam day one as well. But it will probably require Origin still.

    But will the game be good?

    Crysis 2 was a borefest.

    Looks promising; I hope the features of the game live up to the high-performance requirements. I figure my rig falls somewhere between recommended and high-performance; due to Cypress' tessellation and compute limitations such features will probably cause the 5870 to choke where a 7870 will not.

    One detail that seems out of place is an FX 4150 being the AMD CPU recommended for high performance. That's only two Bulldozer modules (four cores/threads), and not even the highest clocked version at that. An i5-2500k would blow it away, let alone the high performance recommended 2600k. Other than that, the minimum and recommended requirements only name dual core CPUs. Makes me wonder just how optimized this game will be for multiple threads.

    Well, it depends. EA games not being on Steam is not entirely EA's decision. Essentially it comes down to how updates and DLC are delivered. Valve wants a piece of the DLC pie and changed their policy for newer games, and EA doesn't want to share. Thus, recently developed games that EA provides DLC for directly, like Dragon Age II or Mass Effect 3, aren't on Steam. Crysis 2 used to be on Steam, but got taken down because EA would not comply with Steam's new terms of service. However, EA has since then released Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, which included all of Crysis 2's DLC on the disc/single download. Since EA was not going to release any more DLC for Crysis 2, Valve allowed it to be released onto Steam. You can go on Steam right now and purchase it.

    So essentially, Crysis 3 will not be on Steam initially. When EA finishes releasing DLC for Crysis 3 and if it releases a similar edition of the game which compiles the DLC all onto one disc or download, it will probably be released on Steam. But it will probably take a while for that to happen, if it happens at all.

    LOL@2600k and gtx680/7970 as performance recommended,Crytek can kiss my ass if the game looks and plays like Crysis 2 cause that game was a abortion case and a console port pos.

    God i hope its worth half a flying fu*k and perhaps i will try it out but if it fails worst then Crysis 2 did,its the last time i will be bending over for Crytek and their games....

    I didn't think Crysis 2 was that bad. People who hate it just wanted Crysis 1 again. I went into it not expecting that and as it turned out, it wasn't terrible.

    Finally, a game that is (supposedly) programmed for relatively high end machines.

    It's about time we get to stretch the legs of some of our rigs!

    Any EA game that even remotely has a chance of having DLC will never be on Steam because Valve doesn't want to let companies sell DLC without them getting a share of the profits even if they don't use steam to distribute the DLC.

    That definitely won't help our case.

    I enjoyed the game too. The multiplayer had a lot of issues and unfortunately a lot of other games came out around the same time and stole the thunder.

    As long as it's not artificial I'm for it. I mean don't do a bunch of things in the background or underground that do not increase the quality of the image. Rivers of tessellation just to force everyone to use SLI to run 50fps is not cool. Using tessellation to make character models look more round or other effects to make the environment look cleaner and more full are welcome.

    I never played it online so I cannot comment on that. The target release date can kill a game. Like if Crysis 3 came out within a week of GTA V it has no chance to get any real sales going.

    Very high minimum requirements, considering that it's coming for the PS3 and 360 as well. I hope the difference between the console versions and PC at low really will be motivated by those requirements.
