StarCraft II Beta System Requirements Revealed [For Real!]

Blizzard unveiled the minimum system requirements for the StarCraft II Beta today. This comes only a few weeks after false system requirements were unveiled on Blizzard’s forums and we’re quickly announced as such by Blizzard and taken down.

It seems that the system requirements will enable a large portion of PC gamers to play Blizzard’s latest title – that is, if they’re lucky enough to get a beta code.

The minimum system requirements can be seen here and keep an eye out for the beta’s release date – it’s scheduled for sometime this spring, and we’re guessing it will be sooner rather than later given the release of the system requirements today. Yay!

System Requirements

  • Windows XP SP3/Vista SP1/Windows 7
  • 2.2 Ghz Pentium IV or equivalent AMD Athlon processor
  • 1 GB system RAM/1.5 GB for Vista and Windows 7
  • 128 MB Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT/ATI Radeon 9800 PRO video card
  • 1024×768 minimum display resolution
  • 4 GB free hard drive space
  • Broadband connection

Keep in mind that these are beta requirements and that they are subject to change for the final version of the game (though we think only the hard drive space will actually change) and that there will also be a Mac version of the game (but no Mac beta).
