    First, on the subject of Multiplayer in Vampire Activision's Shane Defreest ahd this to say:

    <bockquote>I can now confirm this to be true. Bloodlines is a single player only game.</blockquote>

    Not a lot left to comment on. Now on the very interesting subject of system requirements:

    <blockquote>MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    3D hardware accelerator card required - 100% DirectX® 9.0c-compatible 64MB video card and drivers
    1.2 GHz Athlon(tm) or 1.2 GHz Pentium® III processor or higher
    384MB of RAM (512MB of RAM recommended)
    Microsoft® Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP
    Quad-Speed CD-ROM drive (600 K/sec sustained transfer rate) and drivers
    3.3 GB of uncompressed hard disk space for game files and saved games (plus 1.4 GB for Windows® swap file)
    100% DirectX® 9.0-compatible 16-bit sound card and drivers
    100% Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP-compatible mouse, keyboard, and drivers
    DirectX® 9.0c (Included)

    Supported Chipsets for 98/ME/2000/XP

    All ATI® Radeon® Chipsets
    All NVIDIA® GeForce(tm) Chipsets
    Matrox® Parhelia(tm) Chipset</blockquote>

    It doesn't look so bad at all. 512MB of RAM as recommended amount and 64MB GPU, not to mention required CPU. Somehow I'm a bit sceptical about this but I'd love to be surprised. In a positive way of course.

    Source scales down really nicely, it doesn' take much power at all.

    It's nice to know that they'll be using an optimised engine. Too bad some other games, such as Thief: Deadly Shadows didn't take advantage of that.

    Don't be to quick with your judgements. Leon just admitted that their trailers were taken from a following machine: Pentium IV, 3.0GHz machine with 1GB Ram with a Radeon 9800 card* at 1024 x 768 resolution


    * Interesting he didn't specify which 9800 version it was.
