Batman: Arkham City – Official System Requirements

A while ago, we posted Batman: Arkham City’s PC minimum requirements that were featured on the game’s Steam page. We were really curious to see what the recommended requirements would be so get ready everyone, as Warner Bros and Rocksteady revealed the official system requirements of Batman: Arkham City PC.
In order to enjoy the game, PC gamers will need a GTX460 or an ATI Radeon HD 6850 with 768MB+ of VRAM. Hold that thought, because we are as well puzzled. They recommend a GTX460 right? So will this card be able to handle both 3D and PhysX? Apparently not – at least with constant 60fps. On top of that, it seems that the game won’t be optimized for quadcores, as the recommended CPU is an Intel Core2Duo at 2.5Ghz. Figures.
So anyway, here are the official system requirements. Batman: Arkham City PC is slated for a November 18th release.
