When it comes to looking at the minimum and recommended system requirements for an upcoming PC release, your train of thought varies based on how long ago you updated your rig. If it happened less than a year ago, and you allocated money for cooling, then looking at these hardware listings is an exercise in "Recommended? More like what you need to run it in super low res 1080p at a pitiful 60fps." Dear fellow Master Racers, here be thine hardware requirements for the upcoming Far Cry Primal from Ubisoft.
Turns out that a lot of people out there shop "on the line" on this thing called "the internetwork". What happens is they use their personal computing machine and use a piece of software named after Mario's nemesis, called a "Bowser". So with the world changing it's shopping habits, and laying down some money for a game long before it comes out becoming the norm, it looks like release dates for some high profile releases are popping up "on the line" before any official announcement.
At the price of $650 USD (for Australia) with an additional $130 USD in shipping costs. Which, may be a lot steeper than what you were expecting but this gets you the Rift headset, Oculus remote, cables, Xbox One controller, and a sensor. Plus two games. EVE: Valkyrie and Lucky's Tail. If you're interested in the Rift you may want to get in quick because the initial shipments have already sold out. Which took roughly 14 minutes or so. Pre-orders as of now are expected to ship sometime in May this year.
In preparation for the latest patch for Diablo III, Blizzard has posted a 'Are You Prepared for 2.4.0?' page detailing some of the key changes. And in typical fashion there's a lot of new stuff coming to the game. There's a new area to explore, a number of existing set items are getting revamped, and then there's the new challenges of Set Dungeons and Empowered Rifts to tackle. The post-launch strategy since the release of the Reaper of Souls expansion is clearly one to take note of. A steady stream of free and substantial content.
