Need For Speed: The Run – Official System Requirements Announced

Electronic Arts has just announced the official system requirements for their upcoming racer that is powered by DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, Need For Speed: The Run. The minimum requirements are what you’d basically expect from a Frostbite 2 game but what really got our attention, was the HDD requirements. NFS: The Run will need 18GB of free disk space which is more or less what RAGE already requires. Does this also mean that the game will come in two or three DVD’s? Who knows. NFS: The Run is slated for a November 18th release and you can view the entire requirements list¬†after the jump.
