Just Cause 2 will not support Windows XP

Posted By | On 19th, Feb. 2010

The system requirements for Just Cause 2 have just come in, and it looks like trusty old Windows XP won’t run it.

Here are the full system requirements;

Minimum:

– Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7 (Windows XP is unsupported)
– Processor: Dual-core CPU with SSE3 (Athlon 64 X2 4200 / Pentium D 3GHz)
– Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce 8800 Series / ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro with 256MB memory or equivalent DX10 card with 256MB memory
– Memory: 2GB RAM
– DirectX: Microsoft DirectX 10
– Hard Drive: 10GB of free drive space
– Optical Drive: DVD-ROM drive
– Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible sound card
– Internet Connection: Internet connection required for product activation
– Input: Keyboard and mouse (Microsoft Xbox 360 controller optional)

Recommended:

– Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7 (Windows XP is unsupported)
– Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6GHz or AMD Phenom X3 2.4GHz
– Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 Series with 512MB / ATI Radeon HD 5750 Series with 512MB or equivalent DX10 card with 512MB memory
– Memory: 3GB
– DirectX: Microsoft DirectX 10.1 with Vista SP1
– Hard Drive: 10GB of free drive space
– Optical Drive: DVD-ROM drive
– Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible Dolby Digital 5.1 sound card
– Internet Connection: Internet connection required for product activation
– Input: Keyboard and mouse (Xbox 360 controller optional)

This is bad news for many, as a Steam survey conducted last month showed that 42% of Steam users still use XP.

We can also see here that the game will run on Dx10, apparently with no option for Dx9.

Just Cause 2 releases on the 23rd March for the 360, PS3 and PC.
