When you think of Batman games it's all too easy to overlook Traveller's Tales hugely successful Lego Batman series, but the blockbusting side business for the caped crusader is coming up to its third iteration, and it's looking like the ultimate tribute to DC fans far and wide.

As you probably expected, the Lego Batman 3 system requirements are pretty low, in fact almost identical to the Lego: the Hobbit system requirements from earlier this year. The minimum requirements for Beyond Gotham really shouldn't cause too many people any problems whatsoever, the demands by now are practically ancient in gaming hardware terms. Graphics cards like the GeForce 7600 GS and the AMD Radeon X1950 Pro are basically nearly a decade old now, so Lego Batman 3 should be a game almost everyone can get up and running.

The recommended requirements for Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham are identical to The Hobbit, except for the processor demands taking a leap. Despite showing their age now, both the Core i5-750 and the Phenom II X4 970 aRE pretty decent CPUs but you're only going to need to worry about that if you want to max out all of the settings. On the graphics card side you're going to need a fairly modest card, and despite the demands for a GTX 480 we expect you'd be fine with the likes of a GTX 650 for getting great performance out of Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
