Far Cry 2 has made some interesting appearances over the past few months, with a few teasers showing off the new Dunia engine built for the game in addition to a bit of actual gameplay footage. The game does look impressive, but what many fans are probably wondering is exactly what the system requirements would be to run the upcoming title.

Fortunately Ubisoft has come out with an answer today, in both minimum and recommended varieties, and it looks like those who have been playing modern games on their two or three years old rig should at least be able to cope with the open-world shooter. This is certainly welcome news but if you are hoping to run this game smoothly with all the eye candy turned, then you'll at least need a dual core processor, midrange GeForce 8-series graphics card (or even an ATI X1900) plus 2 gigs of RAM.

You can find the full minimum and recommended specs for the game after the jump.
