Only a few days ago a pretty exciting new trailer was released for Gaijin Entertainment's Free-to-Play WWII combat MMO, War Thunder. In it you'll take to the air, land and sea to beat your foes.
The video looked great, and although it didn't contain actual gameplay footage it certainly got our attention. Hopefully the War Thunder System Requirements listed below will give you an idea of how it will look on your PC...
War Thunder Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows XP SP2
CPU: Pentium 4 2.2GHz or Athlon XP 2200+
RAM: 1GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7900 GT series or AMD Radeon 1900 series
DX: DirectX 9.0c
HDD: 8 GB Free Hard Drive Space
NET: Broadband Internet connection
War Thunder Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+
RAM: 4GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 460 or Radeon HD 6850
So from the looks of both the minimum and the Recommended War Thunder System Requirements, it's not asking too much from your PC. Obviously at the lower end of the scale it's not going to stack up against what's being shown in the trailers, but it means it'll probably run pretty well on all but the most beaten up rig. The recommended requirements aren't all that high either so it would be interesting to see what would be considered ultra system requirements for War Thunder. Considering it's a Free-to-Play title, there's no reason why you shouldn't give it a go.
Let us know what you think of War Thunder below. Are you likely to play it now that you've seen the system requirements?
