As you all probably know, the hit strategy game Company of Heroes has a sequel that is due to arrive early 2013.

Company of Heroes 2 will utilise the enhanced Essence 3.0 Engine. Basically, awesome new features and dynamic splossions to fill our eyes. Naturally the devs will be Relic Entertainment, the guys behind Dawn of War and CoH 1. Lets see what sort of machine  Company of Heroes 2 system requirements will need...

Company of Heroes 2 Minimum System Requirements

OS: 32-bit Windows® Vista

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon X2

RAM: 2GB

GPU RAM: 256MB Direct3D 10 capable video card

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800  or ATI/AMD RadeonHD 2900

DX: 10

OTHER: Internet connection required

Fairly modest requirements considering all the goodness we are promised.

Here is a couple of the stand out technologies being introduced in CoH2

ColdTech - includes an ‘extreme cold’ mechanic which accurately encapsulates the Soviet winter which reached extremes of -40 degrees F in 1941. 

Truesight system - takes objects like buildings, walls, trees and smoke into account. This allows players to effectively use tactics like flanking and ambushes. The system can handle terrain variations if we want, but we found that objects provided the most easily understood feedback for players. The default RTS camera sometimes makes it harder to judge the variety of terrain heights and slopes.

In the system requirements section, it only mentioned 32-bit Windows Vista, so if I'm using 64-bit Windows 7 would the game works?

The Turn-Based ones just don't cut it for some reason.
Can't wait to get this one.

It's not too surprising about the low specs. RTS games tend to be highly scalable because the artists are working with a wide POV, so up-close object detail is never really a big issue. I'm guessing, to get all the pretty upgraded bells and whistles, you probably won't need more than a 460.

Haven't really digged into this game, but am quite a RTS fan, so might try it out.
