    Looking good. I hope they’re thinking scalability though :)

    It’s minimum requirement is 1.6GHz processor, 500MB free RAM (1G System memory ideal), a video card something like an nVidia geForce 6200 or intel GM965 or AMD/ATi 3450. So it’s the low end hardware of today, not including all the “legacy” hardware. You can start the game on different detail levels. Highest settings run nice on a GF8800GTS.

    I tried this out last year. I was completely lost because the game did not include a beginner tutorial. Have they added this yet?
