Red Faction: Guerrilla Explodes on PC in September

I have good news and bad news for those of you looking forward to Red Faction: Guerrilla‘s launch on PC — don’t mean to rub it in, but it’s out now on PS3 and Xbox 360 and absolutely rocks!

The good news is that THQ and Volition now have an official launch date in place for the PC version. The bad news is that launch date is even later than previously expected. Retailers have had the game listed for August 25th, but unfortunately the game won’t be making it out until a few weeks after that projection. As of today, the PC version is slated to ship on September 11th internationally and September 15th in North America. That’s a bummer. But hey, look on the bright side. At least that gives you more time to catch up on Red Faction and Red Faction II if you decide to take advantage of GamersGate’s pre-order deal.

Volition has also confirmed the PC version’s minimum and recommended system requirements. Hit the jump for those details.

Minimum:
* OS: Windows XP / Vista
* CPU: 2.0 GHz Dual-Core Processor (Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2)
* Memory: 1 GB RAM / 15 GB of Hard Drive space
* Video Card: 128 MB 3D Video Card w/Shader Model 3.0 Support (Nvidia GeForce 7600/ATI Radeon X1300)

Recommended:
* OS: Windows Vista® for DirectX® 10
* CPU: 3.2 GHz Dual-Core Processor (Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2)
* Memory: 2 GB RAM / 15 GB of Hard Drive space
* Video Card: 256 MB 3D Video Card w/Shader Model 3.0 Support (Nvidia GeForce 8800/ATI Radeon HD3850)

Note: If you’re going to play Multiplayer on Games For Windows Live, we highly encourage each individual to be running a “Recommended” spec computer or higher.
