Mechwarrior Online seems to have had a long and bumpy development cycle. Only within the last year or so has it swapped from a vehicle simulator to a free to play MMO.

It has been a while since a battlemech based game has reached the PC. For those unsure, you get to control and fight skyscraper sized battle robots. Sound cool? Well lets take a look at the MechWarrior Online System Requirements...

MechWarrior Online Minimum System Requirements

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz or AMD Athlon II X2 245e

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT or AMD Radeon HD 5600/5700


OS: Windows Vista 32-bit


HDD: 4 GB required hard drive space

MechWarrior Online Recommended System Requirements

CPU: Intel Core i3-2500 or AMD Athlon II X4 650

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 285 or AMD Radeon HD 5830


OS: Windows 7 SP-1 64-Bit

DirectX: DX9

The representative from developers, Piranha Games, followed up by saying this regarding the MWO System Requirements - 

Right now a duo core system is our minimum spec machine but it is also our main focus of concern. It is playable on those specifications and I have tested it myself but it is currently very much a minimum spec type of experience running on low-detail settings. It’s obvious that a Quad core system is the key as even the earliest Core 2 Quad systems run the game very well and it is our goal (since there are still so many out there), to optimize the Core 2 Duo systems to run much faster.

Thats some hefty recommended RAM requirements there and interestingly they seem to recommend a Intel Core i3-2500 CPU. As far as I know that doesnt exist and they actually mean an i5-2500. Please let me know if I am wrong about that.

Yes they propably mean Core i5. Seems like a good game but graphics dont impress me a lot. Those graphics dont justify those requirements
