Word has it that Harvard Bonin paid a visit to the staff of GameStar.de
, a German website. They have posted what he said
on their website, but it is in German. A site called Evil Avatar
was able to translate the major points of the article. Here they are:
The game will be different from Red Alert 2, more story-driven (comparable to WC3). Loads of cutscenes - done with the in-game engine. Best looking RTS graphics engine to date, lots of particle effects, detailed vehicles and buildings. Minimum Requirements: 800Mhz machine + Geforce 2 card Perfect combination of units being the key to success, not mass. There'll be characters with special weapons/skills, such as generals with devastating bombs. They're not to be seen as units on the screen though, just as icons. The multiplayer mode will feature a ladder system.
The requirements certainly differ from what Delphi had told the community. The requirements Delphi had posted a few weeks back were:
Pentium 2 400Mhz
700 mb of hard drive space
16 mb graphics card
128 mb of RAM
A mouse and a keyboard (obviously)
8 speed CD-Rom drive
He had also said that the processor speed might need to be upped to 600Mhz and the graphics card could be a GeForce 32MB minimum. 800 Mhz is probably too high for most people if their computers are more than a year or two old.
