Microsoft have revealed the official system requirements for the long awaited Crackdown 3. The official game page has appeared on Xbox store with the minimum and recommended specifications listed and they aren't particularly demanding.

Looks like Crackdown 3 is actually happening with the official minimum and recommended system requirements revealed on the game's Xbox store page. You'll be glad to hear they're pretty reasonable and most people shouldn't have any problems running the game at lowest settings. 

Crackdown 3 won't require shiny new generation hardware as the minimum CPU requirements as for an Intel I5 3470, a seven years old generation. The same goes for the red team, a six years old FX-6300 will be just enough. Graphics cards are also something you shouldn't worry about as the required minimum starts with the Geforce 750 Ti or Radeon R7 260X.

It looks like Crackdown 3 will be a well optimised game that will be playable on the highest possible settings for most of the players as the recommended specs require low to mid-tier budget components. For the best looking Crackdown 3 destruction, Microsoft recommends Intel's i5 4690 or AMD's FX-8350 paired with Geforce 1060 or Radeon RX 480, both great choices for 1080p 60fps gaming.
