EA has released the system requirements for the PC version of their upcoming monster-hit (let's be honest) The Sims 4. You'll be pleasantly surprised!

The Sims 4 Premium Membership Revealed

We here at GNG don't believe in beating around the bush, so feast your eyes on this, courtesy of the official Sims website:
