The minimum specifications for the upcoming PC version of Wolfenstein appeared on the official forums.
Yesterday id Software's Peter Sokai revealed the minimum system requirements for the upcoming PC version of Wolfenstein. According to his forum post, fans will need an Intel Pentium 4 3.2 GHz or an AMD Athlon 64 3400+ processor, 1 GB RAM, and a 256 MB Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT or ATI Radeon X800 graphics card. In addition to a required HDD space of 8 GB (plus an additional 800 MB for the Windows swap file), the minimum requirements call for Windows XP or Windows Vista, DirectX 9.0c, a DVD-ROM, a 100-percent DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card, and a broadband connection for the multiplayer portion.
In other Wolfenstein-related news, MTV Multiplayer is reporting that the single-player campaign will feature 1,638.4 Nazi deaths. According to the blog, the game tracks how many Nazis gamers actually kill via the Statistics section. The high number was calculated based on a screenshot provided by Activision, depicting an overall 36-percent progress and 639 Nazi deaths. "I was able to determine that, upon reaching 100-percent completion, you’ll have killed exactly 1,638.4 Nazis in a variety of ways," Frushtick wrote. "Granted this doesn’t factor in replaying missions (which is almost certainly required to get to 100% completion) but hey, math isn’t an exact science!"
Currently Wolfenstein is slated for an August 4, 2009 release. Developed for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 by Raven Software, the game uses a heavily modified version of id Software's id Tech 4, the engine used in Doom 3 and Quake 4. The multiplayer aspect is in development over at Endrant Studios, and is expected to be similar to Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.
