Ah, more on my new obsession, Dragon Age. Let’s take a look today at some of the stuff on the screen.

DA will be using the Eclipse engine which is a new engine developed by Bioware. Here’s the system requirements so you can all go upgrade your machines before the game comes out:

Windows XP Minimum Specifications
OS: Windows XP with SP3
CPU: Intel Core 2 (or equivalent) running at 1.4Ghz or greater
AMD X2 (or equivalent) running at 1.8Ghz or greater
RAM: 1GB or more
Video: ATI Radeon X850 128MB or greater
NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT 128MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

Windows Vista Minimum Specifications
OS: Windows Vista with SP1
CPU: Intel Core 2 (or equivalent) running at 1.6Ghz or greater
AMD X2 (or equivalent) running at 2.2GHZ or greater
RAM: 1.5 GB or more
Video: ATI Radeon X1550 256MB or greater
NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

Recommended Specifications
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent
AMD Phenom II X3 Triple-Core 2.8 GHz or greater
RAM: 4 GB (Vista) or 2 GB (XP)
Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater
NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

I’m gonna need a bigger hard drive for this 20 GB Behemoth.

The PC version of the game uses a UI simaler to Baldur’s Gate, while the console version uses a radial menu system. The graphics good on a console but better on PC from what I hear. DA is a PC lead developed game which means PC comes first, then it’s scaled down and tweaked for the consoles. Which is fine by me because I can play it on my beast at home while others can still enjoy the game on their 360 arcade hooked up to a 19″ television from the 90’s.

Keep on gaming people!
