Optimizations and final system requirements

The game's graphics settings are very scalable. Check out how the game looks when you set everything to minimum:

Minimum graphics settings

And how it looks, when set to maximum:

Full graphics settings

The game's minimum system requirements are

- Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz CPU
- 512 MB RAM
- NVidia GeForce FX 5200 or equivalent
- Windows XP / Vista / 7
- 400 MB HDD

And the recommended system is

- Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz CPU
- 1 GB RAM
- NVidia GeForce 7600 or equivalent
- A sound card, supporting 5.1 surround

These are the final system requirements, and won't change till release.

New graphics features

Many minor and major changes were made to the graphics of the game (reducing the size of the thruster particles and adjusting weapon projectile sizes is among these). We also added a special lens flare effect for each environment, making these areas even more unique:

New Lens Flare #1 New Lens Flare #2

We have seen many-many comments mentioning that the previous font we used was not very pleasant to read, so we use a different one now. You could already see that at the minimum and maximum graphics settings, but for how it looks in-game, take a look at these:

Story Mode #2 Story Mode #1

As the release slowly approaches, we try to make sure that when you finally get to play the game, the experience will be as flawless as possible.

Our website address has changed to www.shatteredorigins.com . It still only contains the "coming soon" screen, but it will be updated soon. The link at the bottom of this page points there now.

We think it will be around 10-15$, but this is not set in stone, it might change in the future.
