Cryptic Studios has just released the minimum and recommended system requirements for their upcoming MMORPG, Star Trek Online. The game is set for release in February, and whether you are a Star Trek fan or not, this MMO looks like it’s worth trying.

Beam me up Scotty! I’m ready for the technical bits.

System requirements:

OS: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 Ghz or AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Memory: 1GB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7950 / ATI Radeon X1800 / Intel HD Graphics
Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
DirectX: Version 9.0c or higher
HDD: 8GB free disk space
Network: Broadband required
Disc: 6x DVD-ROM

Recommended system configuration:

OS: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
CPU: Intel E8400 Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2 5600+
Memory: 2GB RAM or better
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 / ATI Radeon HD 3850+
Sound: DirectXcCompatible soundcard
DirectX: Version 9.0c or higher
HDD: 8GB free disk space
Network: Broadband required
Disc: 6x DVD-ROM

In my experience, you want to ensure you have more than the minimum requirements, or suffer the dread of hiccups and visual tearing, especially in a MMO. The specs required for Star Trek are slightly higher than Cryptic’s previous title Champions Online, despite running on the same engine. Alternatively, this could be a good thing, as Cryptic may have optimized the engines potential since then.

  1. Yep, I’ll be able to rock this on my kick ass PC. Bring on the phasors!

  2. That’s a really hefty CPU the game requires. Considering a vast majority of PC gamers are just now entering in the Duo Core age.

    you are way behind times…. the vast majority of pc gamers have duo core or better. It has been this way for over a year. Hell, ive had a duo core for over 3 years now!

    You’ve had it for over 3 years because your one of those nerds that would rather eat bread and ramen then have anything else but a good computer. However, some of us don’t have a duo core because our priorities are living life outside our rooms and away from our imaginary worlds. I’m proud that you’ve had yours for 3 years. I’ve actually seen live in those years.
