Sword of the Stars 2 has the option of advanced Direct X which usually result in enhanced graphics. If your system is not good enough for these higher levels of DX the game should still run ok
Sword of the Stars 2 is intiailly released as a download. It is usually an expansion pack so check to see if you need a main game before getting this. Sword of the Stars 2 may be released in the shops at a later stage
We met with Kerberus Developer, Chris Stewart, at E3 and he told us a few interersting things about the upcoming Sci-fi Strategy Sword of The Stars 2. I believe Squee is putting together our meeting with Chris as I speak so you will get to see some of those points very shortly.
But what I am interested in during this news piece is the SotS2 system requirements. We pressed Chris for some details during the show but the Stars 2 requirements were still undecided by that point. What we did know was that due to game engine development we are looking at Direct X 10 machines at a minimum. However, we now have the requirements in hand and there are a couple of hefty surprises.
