Homefront: The Revolution System Requirements Manage To Keep The Peace

     Development troubles don't get more topsy turvy than the fate that has befallen Homefront: The Revolution, but by hook or by crook, it's making its way to us courtesy of new studio Dambusters and the deep pockets of Deep Silver for publishing duties. Now I know you've probably just had terrible flashbacks of the original Homefront but don't worry, the sequel has nothing to with the now-defunct Kaos Studios and THQ. This is starting afresh.

There's a proper PC FPS feel to proceedings, and it's all been built in the powerful CryEngine. There's a huge open-world Philadelphia to render, along with intense guerilla battling, so make sure your rig is up to scratch with the official Homefront 2 system requirements. 

Homefront: The Revolution Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4570T 2.9 GHz or AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Video Memory

Homefront: The Revolution Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon HD  7870

As has become the norm, Homefront 2 has a pretty massive installation size, but no surprises there. One stumbling block for some could be the 6GB RAM minimum. I know plenty are still getting by on 4GB, but it's looking increasingly as if 8 GB is the standard accepted minimum for a gaming setup these days.
