Subscribe To Dragon Age Inquisition System Requirements Confirm Online Authentication, Controller Support Updates
BioWare provided an update on the PC version of Dragon Age: Inquisition this afternoon. They revealed the system requirements along with some screenshots of the game on that platform.

The studio broke down the requirements into the usual two categories, minimum and recommended. No matter whether you're running the game at low or high settings, though, you'll need a DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card. You'll also have to connect to an online server to authenticate your copy. However, you'll only have to authenticate the game at the time of installation. In other words, expect a launch day that's less disastrous than SimCity's.

Dragon Age: Inquisition's system requirements also confirm that it supports the Xbox 360 controller. That's great news for those of us who prefer to do our PC gaming on the couch. PC games with console ports that don't support gamepads (I'm looking at you, Elder Scrolls Online) were always a pet peeve of mine.

If you're comfortable with mouse and keyboard, though, you might be pleased to hear that Logitech will be releasing Dragon Age brand peripherals this fall:
