While we were at E3 we went and found our friends over at Bohemia Interactive and had a chat about the system requirements they announced for their summer 2012 military sim.

ArmA 3 is being built with the following system requirements in mind

 

ArmA 3 System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista 64 bit

CPU: Intel Core i5 or AMD Athlon Phenom X4

RAM: 2 GB

GFX: GeForce GTX 260 or Radeon HD 5770

DX: 10

HDD: 15 GB

 

Now we put it to Bohemia that this is quite a hefty machine by todays global standards and so would ArmA 3 offer some form of in-game configuration to further customise the gaming experience?

Bohemia Interactive explained that they are hoping to offer the player quite a lot of control in the final version, with various screen resolutions and scenery adjusters allowing the player to enjoy the game how they want.

From our chat we have put together our version of the ArmA 3 system requirements

 

GD - ArmA 3 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista 64 bit

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 or AMD Athlon II X2 245

RAM: 2 GB

GFX: GeForce GT 330 or Radeon HD 2900

DX: 10

HDD: 15 GB

 

GD - ArmA 3 Medium System Requirements

GD - ArmA 3 Ultra System Requirements

As always, bare in mind that these are our GD ArmA 3 system requirements and we will update with more information as soon we get closer to the games release date.

If you are looking to purchase a new machine specifically to run ArmA 3 at its maximum settings we strongly advise that you do not do so until the official system requirements further confirmed closer to the release date next year, summer 2012.
