Defiance System Requirements
Written by Felix Nova on 12 March 2013 at 21:16

RTS mixed with FPS mixed with vehicle sim. We have seen awesome genre bending titles come and go. We have also seen movie tie ins fizzle and pop. What we havent yet experienced is what Defiance is going to try and do.

Defiance on the PC is an MMO that will be influenced by what happens on a TV show by the same name. That combo may not work first time round but we are keen to see how it goes. Lets see if we can run Defiance on our PCs as here are the Defiance System Requirements...

Defiance System Requirements


Defiance Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win XP SP2

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz CPU or better

RAM: 2GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 512MB video card

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8600, ATI Radeon HD 2900, or Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics or better

DX: 9.0c direct x

HD: 15GB of free hard drive space

AUDIO: DirectX 8.1 compatible sound card

NET: Broadband internet connection

 

Defiance Recommended System Requirements

OS: Win 7

CPU: Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz CPU or better or similar AMD processor

RAM: 4GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 1024MB video card

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 or ATI Radeon HD 4750 or better

DX: 9.0c direct x

So there we have it. A lot of games are pushing for Intel i5's now adays as recommended. We feel that this is often something of an overkill as there are plenty of great but cheaper CPUs. However, it certainly is the time of the GPU so make sure you meet those aging minimums or you might get quite an ugly experience.

Another interesting turn up for the books is the Intel integrated HD 4000 being in the minimum requirements list. Thats one of the first times Integrated GPUs have been recognised as a suitable requirement, even if it is a minimum requirement.

you have spent too much on hard drive. 1 TB is more than enough… spend more money on graphics card, buy at least a GTX 660 or AMD HD 7850 and if you want to play games at 1080p than GTX 650 won't satisfy you. Buy at least a GTX 660.

650 doesn't have a too good value, you'd better go with a HD7770 or the upcoming HD7790…

I'm very excited to watch Defiance on SyFy, but I'm not sure about the game. At least the requirements are reasonable.
