It appears the new Frostbite 2.0 engine will be DirectX 10 and 11 exclusive, meaning no DX9 or Windows XP support. A DICE developer Johan Andersson has tweeted (http://twitter.com/#%21/repi/status/20028015661): 'Frostbite 2 is primarily developed for DX11. XP & DX9 is _not_ supported, 64-bit OS is recommended. Lots of time to upgrade if you havent!' Oh well. Windows

XP is almost ten years old now, expect this more and more...
