343i Reveals Halo Reach's PC system requirements

Microsoft has officially released the PC system requirements for Halo Reach's upcoming PC version, revealing how powerful your gaming hardware need to be to run Halo at average framerates of around 60FPS. 

As you can imagine, given Halo Reach's origins as an Xbox 360 title, Halo: Reach's PC system requirements are very modest by today's standards, with 4K gameplay being a possibility on graphics cards like AMD's Radeon RX 480. 

Right now, 343 Industries has released Minimum, 1080p Minimum and 4K Minimum system requirements for Halo: Reach for both AMD/Radeon and Intel/Nvidia powered systems. In time, PC system requirements for systems with Integrated graphics will be rated for Halo: Reach's PC version. These PC system requirements are for the Steam version of the game, with Microsoft noting that the "specs will be slightly different for the Windows Store version".

At this time, we do not know why the Windows Store's specifications will be different than what we see on Steam. At this time Halo Reach has no firm release date on PC. 

On PC, Halo Reach will support separate Field of View options for Vehicles and First-Person viewpoints and offer players support for Resolution Scale options and multiple aspect ratios. This should allow PC gamers with 1080p monitor to downsample Halo Reach from higher resolutions if their hardware is up to the task. This is great news for PC gamers with high-end GPUs in their systems.

I'm the insider preview of it, but due to being ill I cannot play it, I can just about look at my monitor but trying to play games is a no go.

I need to check the timetable for it, and hopefully it will still be playable in a couple of days.Quote
