    UW won't be out before 2003.

    Acc. Moore's law the speed of PCs doubles every 1.5 years. This means by the time UW is released the standard PC will be roughly a 3-4 GHz CPU with 1GB RAM with a 128MB video card (probably a GeForce 4 or so).

    If you buy a top end machine now, UW will probably still be playable on it in 1.5 years, but it'll be rather at the lower end of the system requirements.

    That's not necessarily true, because games are made for a larger range of systems. A P3 500 with 128mb of RAM is 2 years old, but will still play most of the stuff out there at high detail levels.

    Besides, there is no set release date for Unreal Warfare.

    I don't think EPIC will release both U2 and UW within the same year... I think U2 + 1 year = UW.

    I think a Pentium 4 with 2GHz will still be enough ;)

    Stuff happens and games get delayed. Unreal took 4 years.

    and Unreal was the first game of the series, which means they had to build the engine. (well, they actually built 2, but....)

    In a recent interview (linked off of PUnreal I think) Sweeney was saying that the U2 engine won't be happy without Gforce2 system and will smile with a GF3. Guessin the UW engine would be about the same.

    I would imagine CPU/RAM/HD would go with that trend.

    Works for me, my old HP PII has been begging to become a sandbox.

    That sounds about right, RegularX. I believe that U2 and UW are both based on the same engine. Theoretically speaking you won't see a game built using technology that isn't out yet, so from that point of view current high end systems should be able to run U2 and UW when they are released.

    it's disgraceful when you think of the amount of money you pay them every month to develop their so-called games.

    Oh, wait a minute....

    UT was originally just a botpack for Unreal, but they decided to go a little further with it. Unreal + 1 Year = UT.

    Ut is a great game. I won't delete it off my harddrive, not even when I purchased a copy of Unreal2... :)
    Or Unreal warfare...
