Battlefield 3 to be DX11, won't run on XP

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Seems as if DICE isn't going the whole "console port" way after all. DX11 support and it won't run on XP. 64bit OS is recommended as well! Can't wait to see this.

I feel like this is something they say, but they will not do.

How's that? They already have started making it for a while now and the engine it runs on doesn't support xp or dx9.

A developer finally makes a game to be as good as possbile on a pc, and people moan that it doesnt support the old Direct X. Btw it will only support Direct X 10 or 11, so you only need vista/win7 and a newer card, not a brand new card. By the time it comes out most people will have upgraded you would hope.

Finally games are starting to leave DX9 in the dust. Honestly anyone running a machine that can run modern games should be on 7 by now, and anything that actually needs XP to run decently isn't going to be able to run modern games anyways.

I'm fine to play it. My 8800GS can support DX10, and I'm not on XP, so I'm good.

Well ... Just Cause 2 requires DX10 (so Vista/se7en) to run on PC, but it's still available on the consoles, and let's face it ... it's still a console-y game even on the PC.

So I'm not sure this particular news means too much.

yeah i guess it was made in DX9 for consoles then they just added a bunch of DX10 crap to it.

EDIT: still looks beautiful though.

From what I've seen, the DX10-only games seem to do well in performance. The whole reason for DX10 was to make things easier to program, so when people did both DX9 and DX10 for a game, they were usually missing out on most of the reason they would use DX10 in the first place. When it's DX10-only, they get to take advantage of certain things without worry. Thus why Just Cause 2 ran so well.

If your GPU can't handle DX10, it's definitely time to upgrade. It's 2011, your card is at least four years old now. I don't see why this is a big deal.

Finally... Move on! DX9 is old... And so is XP. If you're a gamer and you're still on XP you're missing out.
