After a lot of speculation, Maxis has officially revealed the system requirements of upcoming life simulator The Sims 4 and they are bit more demanding than you’d expect.
REQUIRED: Internet connection required for product activation.
OS: 64 Bit Windows 7,8, or 8.1
PROCESSOR: Intel core i5 or faster
AMD Athlon X4
MEMORY: 4GB RAM
HARD DRIVE: At least 9 GB of free space with at least 1 GB additional space for custom content and saved games
DVD-ROM: DVD ROM drive required for installation only
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GTX 650 or better
SOUND CARD: DirectX 9.0c Compatible
DIRECTX: DirectX 9.0c compatible
INPUT: Keyboard and Mouse
These recommended requirements will look good to regular PC gamers who play the AAA titles like Battlefield 4, Crysis and others like these, but a lot of people who enjoyed The Sims experience on their work laptops might be disappointed with these specifications.
However, we have yet to see the minimum requirements of The Sims 4 and those may favor the work laptops to run the game at least on the medium settings.
The wait for The Sims 4 is almost over, as the game is scheduled to launch in the coming week on 2nd of September for PC.
What do you think of these system requirements?
