Crysis 3 PC System Requirements Revealed

Crysis 3 screen 3 - Prophet under fire

The Crysis franchise has always been famous for its games and their ability to make you cry when you realize just how pathetically incapable your brand new gaming PC really is. Crysis 3 from Crytek and EA is no exception, and will require every last bit of juice your rig has to give.

Sorry kids, you simply won’t have enough memory or storage space anywhere to run the likes of Microsoft Word while running-and-gunning through Crytek’s latest. Also, Windows XP users have been given the boot. Get with the times, you silly billies. Anyway, here are the specs you’re after:

Minimum System Requirements

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM
  • Dual core CPU
  • 2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)
  • Nvidia/Intel example setup: Nvidia GTS 450, Intel Core2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (E6600)
  • AMD example setup: AMD Radeon HD5770, AMD Athlon64 X2 2.7 Ghz (5200+)

Recommended System Requirements

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM
  • Quad core CPU
  • 4GB Memory

Sigh, looks like I’ll need more… well, everything.

  1. Whooo Hooo, I can play it on recommended! Actually I’m not that excited for Crysis 3, I dunno why, just am.

  2. Looks like I’m in the clear! I’m so glad I got my GTX 680.

  3. I see a game that probably won’t sell well on Console, and probably will do OK on PC, but since I played in the Multiplayer Alpha, I really don’t see myself buying this game for the multiplayer (since it was horrible, and there are better shooters out there), I see this game getting pirated alot on PC. Sorry, but this will probably be the last Crysis game. farcry 3 will probably do 10x better on console and PC and that is the franchise Crytek needs to stick with.

  4. I think my pc just snapped inn half :(

  5. If this is what’s considered to be pushing PC hardware at the moment, my current rig is probably going to last me a long time.

  6. I just need a 680. Anyone? Money? Anyone? pls?

  7. And here I just got the GTX 560…. God damn it…..

  8. Glad I have a HD7970M and i7-2530QM with 12GB RAM then.

  9. *i7-2630QM

    • 12gb’s of RAM?! I’m still busting out with 8 gigs (4gbs x 2 sticks). Maybe I’ll jump up the memory when Crysis 4 hits… Though, by then I’ll probably need 40gbs….

      • I just upgraded to 32GB today. Honestly if you have 4 DIMMs in your motherboard, RAM is cheap enough now to get a silly amount.

      • Eh… I might as well update the thing. I’m trying to overclock my gpu/cpu, but RAM usage has been bottlenecking the hell out of everything… Hopefully Tigerdirect has some deals going on this time around. :/
