It’s really nice how the developers have specified what you can expect from the two sets of requirements. More developers need to do that. The recommended requirements tier looks a bit heavy, but isn’t really unexpected lately. Besides, with the GTX 970 being one of the most popular graphics cards on the market right now, a lot of players should be able to match them.
