Game-Debate Requirements for From Dust
RAM: 3 GB
[Game-Debates Requirements are what we think you can get From Dust running comfortably on. For example, you may not be able to turn anti-aliasing on but the game will still play and look just great at your standard resolution. We will adjust these requirements based on your feedback and they will power the system requirements tool on the game page]
Obviously From Dust looks like it needs some serious CPU power to get the game running. I would like to remind PC fans that this is a good thing. We want games to push the boundaries and really use the hardware we have in our systems to help move our gaming platform (the PC) forward. Otherwise we will always be hanging around for the dated console during these times when the average PC offers superior hardware performance over consoles.
So everyone be sure to let us know how you find From Dust and get in touch with us if you play this game. We all want to know.
Our thanks again to Joshman2934 for finding this information and bringing it to our attention. Huzzah!
