BioShock Infinite

BioShock Infinite PC Requirements Revealed

While BioShock Infinite will be shipping on multiple platforms, the version with the most options and flexibility is definitely going to be on the PC. Irrational Games has detailed not only the requirements for playing BioShock Infinite on your system, but also some neat details on what the PC version will feature compared to its console counterparts.

First up is the obvious flexibility of being able to remap your controls on the keyboard and mouse. BioShock Infinite will also support the use of a console-style controller if you prefer to play that way. On the visual side of things, Irrational Games is embracing widescreen gaming in a big way. If you're like some of the crew at FPS General, you like to take care of your computer business with multiple monitors. BioShock Infinite supports not only extra wide monitors, but also multiple monitors. 'Horizontal plus' support makes it so that the wider your monitor is, the more of the game you will actually be seeing, in regards to the environments of Columbia.

Now, all of these options are great but what if your system can't even handle the game? Irrational Games has worked hard to ensure that everyone can enjoy BioShock Infinite, regardless of how expensive and current their hardware may be.
