Anthem Specs: Windows 10 Required

EA offers official system requirements for Anthem (thanks MP1ST). They provide minimum and recommended specifications along with word that the game requires a persistent internet connection in case anyone thought a multiplayer game could operate otherwise. Also, according to this, the game requires Windows 10, which we don't recall seeing before. Here are the specs:

Well if this is Win10 only, I guess I'm not playing it...
Anthem will run on Windows 7 and 8. We just don't officially support it.

You can try the Demo coming out in February to see if Anthem is right for you.

Crushbug, is this some new plan or has EA or others done this? Have a game that will work with Win7-10, but then only list Win10 because of support and not care of the blowback they will get by doing so?

We have done this in past games when we dropped support for Windows XP and moved to Windows 7 as the min spec.

We run Anthem on Windows 7 occasionally, and it works just fine.

Origin will not block you installing the Demo or game on Windows 7; we just aren't officially supporting those OSes.
